      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I also think that men have little or no impact on or responsibility for the way women perceive themselves, or their various body-image related neuroses.

 

This is, without a doubt, the funniest thing you have ever posted. You should get the retard award for this one.

It is at the very young and formative years that the damage is done. It think that most damage is done by the brainwashing electronic salesmen that we leave our children with each day.

Yeah, it's the TV (of course, I was raised without one and still don't have television--and you can see how I am unaffected). It is surely anything but men.

with each passing year I get more repulsive. who cares.

Ditto.

And my best friend, a fabulous woman and excellent doctor, said to me: "Why should I waste so much time worrying about my appearance. There are so many things that are so much more important".

And I thought, "Duh. Why didn't I think of that?"

I respect that so greatly; I wish I could accept it into my own belief system. She's rad.

Appearance is a consequence of fitness.

And age.

And genetics.

And social expectations.

And there are probably some more.

This contest sounded so easy, but this morning I was unable to stop myself from doing a trail run then going to the gym. To make matters worse, I ate a perfectly healthy breakfast afterward. I suck at this contest. :(

 

I'm moving back over to the other thread.

Maybe we should all start a "fat is beautiful" craze, and merely be nice to Sherri the way she was to us when being in shape was the craze

:laf: That's a great idea! I could really use the support in order to break out of this stupid healthy rut. You guys are the best. ;)

Sherri,

It is understandable that you went the healthy route this morning, that is just a part of your habit. However, don't lose hope. With time, focus, and determination, you too can have a twinkie. And remember, we love you no matter how you look.

Tater chips are the key to converting the healthy.

 

I really like the concept of merely becoming more accepting of ones own weight. However I don’t think it works at this late stage of life to try to completely undo all of the socialization of a lifetime. In our culture we are socialized to find skinny people attractive. At this stage, I keep trying to convince myself that fat is beautiful, but I just cannot feel it. Life would be even easier if I could convince myself that I found men attractive, because they are sure easier to get along with. But my mind just doesn’t go that way. Trying to convince myself that Big is Beautiful seems just as hopeless, thus my life of solitude.

 

Finally, somehow one needs to convince ones self that it is OK to smile as their body goes to hell as they get older. Another mind game that seems impossible, even though you know it is the right thing and the smart thing. Socialization is hell. Perhaps we can merely raise our kids better and try to socialize them more openly.

 

Man, I am a sensitive MoFo

 

 

And don't worry about it arch, no matter how big you get, you still have a real purdy mouth (I mean, nice smile.)

I am sitting here in WI resiting the urge to run or rent a bike to ride along Lake Michigan.

 

When I get back, I want the cc.com community to be proud of my will power and inner terpitude.

PS Muff, the ice cream here in America's Dairland is amazing!

that is my goal. I just wrote recently that it is more important to grow my spirit than it is to shirk my waist.

I'm gonna try harder tomorrow, I promise. I think it would help if I cut up the twinkies into bite size pieces and took a baggie full of them to work. It'll make it easier to resist the pull of those beautiful apples and yummy bananas that seem to be everywhere. Aarrgh!

That is the sweetest most sincerely niaeve post. I love it. It show s room from growth.

 

Do not cut up twinkiies before deepfrying them. With a good dose of oil at hot levels, you can reconfigure that pesky molecular structure of each and every twinkie. We'll talk.
