That should have read "no pun intended." My phone's auto correction should be shot.

Favorable environment, genetics or not, you could still make a difference if you should choose to do so. Nothing beats hard work and a positive attitude. Your environment is merely another variable that will either motivate you or bring you down. I will say that is a very meaty (no out intended) paragraph about science and its findings. Interesting.

KindDragon, what motivated me was the fact that I always admired a chiseled physique and I always had a genuine love for exercise. Being the fat kid who idolized Schwarzenegger and Stallone, I always aspired to emulate them. After finding what worked for me (I merely brush up and slightly read into stuff) I simply ran with it and success hit harder than a sack of hammers.

To add to the entire "science" part of this discussion, 85% of my family is overweight to an either slight or crazy degree considering how I'm from German and Italian heritage. Exception to the scientific rule?? Nope... I just chose to bust my ass and make great choices. :-)

Not this thread mind you but the other two active threads about the subject in the other forums.

thanks for the pertinent info folks. there was a study about twins that were separated at birth which also pointed to genetics but my brief search didn't turn it up. Truth be told( again )these anti fat threads are born out maliciousness from the op to another member.

I don't know what constitutes a "valid" study.....but, wiki says:

Like many other medical conditions, obesity is the result of an interplay between genetic and environmental factors. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism predispose to obesity under certain dietary conditions. The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population examined, from 6% to 85%.[2] As of 2006, more than 41 sites on the human genome have been linked to the development of obesity when a favorable environment is present.[3]

I stand corrected Leeza. What I read there, as I sometimes read too quickly, was "Overweight people are MORE PRONE to being obese." I completely overlooked genetically. Silly me.

The assertive and arrogant trainer within (I used to be one) is gonna come out and say: Anything is possible if you apply yourself. It's much easier to be lazy and throw dietary caution to the wind. I was 240 when I was 13, as I posted below. Back in July of last year, July of 2012, I was 240. I am now a lean and physically capable powerhouse (not boasting, seriously) weighing in at 187.

Point?? If I can do it, so can anyone else. All it takes is effort that keeps on one-upping itself. You'd be surprised to see what happens when you take an ideal and run with it; you'll be surprised to see what you can do!!

If you choose to be big, don't be all sensitive to comments. After all, this is your choice, right??

"No Fattys" (sp?) is pretty rude, but there are a lot of folks who just aren't attracted to obese people. There are others who have a problem with different races, simply out of a sexual preference, not in a racist sense. For example, I (male half) am not physically attracted to Asian women. Nothing about their ethnicity, I'm simply not turned on by them. Vive la difference. I do know men who love BBWs, and more power to them. We have to remember that this is a swinger's site, not a diversity conference. We all have our particular tastes, and can and should express them without being rude or demeaning.

Paragon - is it a valid point? I've never heard of a study that indicates that most overweight people are genetically prone to obesity. If anyone has a link to a valid basis for that statement, it would be very interesting.

most over weight people are genetically prone to obesity. these fat threads are directed at a certain member who has an extremely hateful and hurtful stalker.
