    i dont know how they figured it out but i think they did a pretty good job, but i see it as truth.

    polls are not always "bad" but they can be used in any way a person/or other .... wants them to be used.

    i know i am over-weight. not that my weight is too high so i guess im not technically over-weight. but i have too much fat and not enough muscle.

    i know obesity is being 20% over the optimal/avg. body weight...


    i think over-weight is less.

    I really don't think fitness should be judged by how much you weigh.

    I want to go to fat camp. Not because I think I've fat(I'm just round dammit), but because I think it would a fun/quick way to get whipped into shape. Plus, I'd kick all those little fatties ass at everything!

    i am a fanatical believer in the magical healing power of exercise. it's no wonder why so many americans are depressed - our bodies were meant to move! i had better luck with brisk walks than i had with prozac and fad diets. we had a membership in the Y for awhile, and it was so wonderful because i could work out, swim, and bake in the sauna, while my kids socialized in the child care area. i was feeling great. but my husband is such a basketcase, he'd go to any extreme to avoid social situations of any kind, and he ended up cancelling our membership instead of renewing. neurotic asshole. anyway, i gained so much weight with the baby, and i haven't been able to lose it. :(

    No one has questioned if people are just evolving to be larger than they were sixty years ago. I mean, look at how many fat/large babies there are now... Besides, I've seen studies (like someone previously mentioned) that showed a lot of overweight Americans are more healthy than the Americans in the "normal" weight range. What would that show...

    Really, no kidding??????
    There are fat people online? Really?
    If this is true they should start a yahoo group or something.

    I could be in better shape and health--and I've been working on that--but I'm not overweight. I'm not skinny either, I could probably lose 20 pounds and still look healthy, but that's because I'm 6'0" and my frame is able to contain alot. I highly recommend jogging. My body only looks slightly different from when I first began jogging, but my endurance has vastly improved. This relates to whoever mentioned that some heavier people are actually healthier than those thinner than themselves. I know I'm healthier than some skinnier friends and coworkers, simply because I jog and eat a little healthier.

    I highly recommend jogging.
