Obesity is a Sin

Obesity is a sin. It's up there with Murder, Adultery, and Covetousness.*


Introducing, Anya's Law


Gluttony is a sin. Greed is a sin.

Hence,


Gluttony + Greed + uninhibited propensity to indulge =  Obesity :. Sin

Why are some people obese? How did they eat their way to that weight? Are they naturally hungrier than other people? Are they just greedy? Are some people more susceptible to weight gain than others?
  
I have a genuine fear of being fat. It is the fear that I will eat myself to death. That I will become so big and swollen that I will no longer be considered attractive by the opposite sex. I feel good about myself when I think I'm attractive but I feel even better when others think I am an attractive person.

I'm afraid of fat people. I think that fat is contagious. Sometimes, I feel that if I hang around a fat person, my body may sub-consciously tap into their frequency of fatness; that I'll start eating like them, I'll become allergic to exercise, and swell into a shapeless blob of fat globules.

I think I'd rather have an eating disorder (like anorexia or bulimia) than be Obese.  
There's nothing sexy about obesity.
 At least with anorexia, I can gradually eat my way back to my ideal weight (125 lbs). But it'll take a lot of hard work & determination to burn  200lbs down to 125.

 When I start having kids, I intend to work out like a fiend right after each birth. Fat is not sexy - even on moms. I'll exercise post-baby so it won't be said that "oh, she let herself go after having children". That will not be said about me. No. Never.

There are so many stereotypes about fat people; that they're dirty. they're stinky. they have low self-esteem. they're weak. they have no will to lose weight. e.t.c. How can you possibly (un)believe these stereotypes when you see this?



So my dear readers, are you fat? More so, are you obese? What are you doing about your predicament?
These days I have 138 lbs on my 5'5" frame. But I'm working hard everyday to redeem myself from the bondage of sin.

Never be afraid to take charge of your body. It's the only one you've got!

Sadly hun, a gud percentage of obesity comes from a brain defect/damage.

Medically speakin; it's wen ur body cannot stop hunger once it's been initiated (usually wen thers a lesion of some sort in the ventromedial area of ur hypothalamus)

but that's jst a percentage, the better majority is jst from horrible eating habits!

I'm ~B~ nd I approve this law!!

p.s- sorry 4 goin all encyclopedia on ya! :)

neefemi said...

i have the exact same fear, tho ii will not say it out loud...and yes i think if i ever felt the need to i might get a non-surgical operation to reduce fat....but with that said like B said, most of it is medical and not always their fault, having other diseases and having more of certain cells and just your genes increases your predisposition to obesity its why you have to watch it, but of course people don't know this until they are already too big...

Love, love this post!!! I've always felt the same way, and people are quick to get offended when I state my beliefs. We're not built to consume such large amounts of food, for it's unhealthy (and unattractive) on so many levels.

I'm soooooooo on you about the baby weight. The other day, I saw a group of moms pushing their babies in strollers as they ran...I must admit, I was cheering them on in my head, and saying to myself, "I'm going to do this when I have a baby."

Also, to add to ~B~'s comment, palmitic acid (which is a type of saturated fat in various butters, cheeses, and red meats) blocks satiety hormones and increases appetite...making your brain less responsive to "non-eating" motives. So in essence, it is brain defect/damage, but it can easily be prevented/stopped by getting into a healthier mindset from the start.

lol.nice info.

Scarlet said...

Interesting! I understand why people have a fear of becoming fat, its a natural instinct.
Allow me to air my views on a few issues
1) Only a very very very minuite people are obsese due to a medical conditon. Such brain lesions. As described are very rare. D obesity dat results is usually due to long term use of steroid to stop braon swelling
2) Anorexia nervousa is a medical conditon. Nobody with this disease can be considered health. The mortality rate from this is greater than 40 percent.many never recover from it, most of them die, very young. Many of them cannont eat because of this disorder, they cannot eat their way to being fat.
3) Hormones play a part in satiey but not exactly ind way described. Would you be suprised to know dat fat people derive much less plessure from food thab others? They have to produce much more of d hormone leptin to derive pleasure from food
4) For most people who are obese, its a case of simple mathematics, they east much more than they are burning.
5) On gastric banding: yes u will loose weight and "look" healthy on d outside but its trading one set of potential problems for another.

I'm sorry to rant on ur blog but u touched on a subject dat always gets me worked up.its all about keeping things in balance and simple mathematics

The guy underneath in the first pic must have collapsed I think. B has pointed out what I wanted to but your points are very valid.

Parakeet said...

lmaorofl!...Anya, this is funny die, trust me. I see what you mean though. Fat ain't attractive but I genuinely believe that there are the odd pple who get addicted to food and cant stop themselves from eating until they get help.

bob-ij said...

I thought I was bad! Im 5'45 and I think i'm about 126lbs, I'm trying to lose it ALL! lol.. I eat too much chocolate. It IS a sin to over-indulge as pa JUNK! urghh! I need to stop!

~x~

Nice Anon said...

Bobji says she wants to lose it all. do you want to look like bonger fish?? U are skinny enough as is!

Post
This is why I keep working out even though I haven't in a while but today my ass is going to work out. I think I need to watch what I eat as well

mizchif said...

GBAM!

My fear of fat is so serious now that the thought of pregnancy sef is like......i dunno sef.

Obesity is just so unhealthy and is a risk factor for almost any and every disease or disorder i dont know how people eat themselves to the point where they cant even stand up.

Anyaposh said...

~B~, I'm learning new things everyday thanks to people like you!

neefemi, i think fear is good as long it helps us avert this kind of crisis!

B.C.U, thanks girl - healthier mindset, here I come! I wanna be a hot mom, cougar-esque! I don't want to rock mom jeans or anything mommy'ish like that. It's so boring & expected!

leggy, now you know.

Scarlet, yeah gurl...i know about that Anorexia bit but It's mostly wishful thinking. I'd rather jump on a treadmill than think of sticking a tooth-brush down my throat (as per bulimia). I guess those are the extremes on weight-scale. The one hand is Obese, the other - Anorexic!

受傷, that's why I'm starting off my daily regime of workouts from now until I see results.

Myne Whitman, how did he even fathom that he could take on that woman? i mean seriously!

Parakeet, I hope we never develop that kind of addiction. God forbid!

bob-ij, ok hun you need to stop! At 126lbs you should work on maintaining your weight & just being healthy. You're such a tiny thing too. How often do you work out?

Nice Anon, I am there with you woman! y'know how people use skinny models as their inspiration for weightloss? I use obese "models" as mine. I'm training my brain to avert that kinda disaster.

mizchif, yes! that's the scariest thought. Like didn't they own a mirror? or don't they have family/friends who can see them swelling up over time? it's so scary to eat yourself to state of 'bed-rest' only.

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

Anya Posh? Anya Posh? Anya Posh?

How many times did I call your name, you this girl?

That first picture scared my daughter!!!! I must now start treating your blog as I treat Afrobabe and Sugabelly's - FOR MY EYES ONLY! lol!!!

BTW, I saw your latest comment at Nigerian Curiosity. Congrats!!!! Can I see the finished product? Pretty please?

And as for obesity...I like to think that it is genetic. That's where I stand on it. That combined with bad eating habits, and a lack of knowledge on how to get exercise into one's daily routine.

I'm just grateful that is not my issue.

Lady X said...

Being Fat and Obese are two different things. Obesity is extreme. I consider it a disease. You should sit near an obese person. Breathing is hard for them not to mention they can't walk for too long without breaking a sweat or almost collapsing.

I feel pity for obese people. I find it weird that people ridicule them or make fun of them cuz it's not even something to laugh at. It is SAD and a bit terrifying. I keep wondering if they'll keel over and die.

If you wanna lose weight and stay fit(which is I think is more important) I encourage you to try the P90x workout program! You can do it at home! It's very hard I have to say. But if you're serious about it...

Anyaposh said...

Lady X, What's the p90x workout?

Mario A. said...

I would like to know where I can find an entire list of every single complication that can be caused by obesity. If no such list exists, please tell me how many medical complications can be caused by obesity i think i`m going to use sildenafil for do exercise or something

belly rings said...

These articles are fantastic; the information you show us is interesting for everybody and is really good written. It’s just great!! Do you want to know something more? chinese sharpei

Kenneth said...

Thanks for your responses! I have received such encouraging words from so many people, especially from those who have tried P90X. It's like a fraternity. Keep the positive emails ..

SlimNaturally said...

Yes, It is scary! I'm only few kilos overweight and I hate it. And nicely noted about running mothers! The difference in being obese vs being fit is in having completely different lifestyles. And it starts when we are children.

So your PRIDE in your looks and wanting to look sexy to the other sex is not a sin? Girly you have a BIG problem with PRIDE, yes Obesity is a sin but equally so is pride.. I would say we are all sinners at best and if not for the grace of God would be going to HELL. Remember that speck in thy neighbors eye and the log in thine own thingy the Bible talks about? So you have some issues you need to work on just like your "" contagious Fatty friend"" don't you darling? I'd say your probably not as hot as you think you are, prideful people are obnoxious at least.

Anya Posh said...

Hi Freddy, Yes we all have problems. This entry was intended to be satirical but if you cannot see passed that because of that log in your own eye then you're on your own and I can't help you there.
