You are reading page 21 of Can a fat nurse be a good nurse?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Is that kid wearing some sort of loincloth??? :eek::D Needs someone to style him/her!! That 'diaper ivory' is a horrible fashion statement !

Confession time! That baby has always creeped me out. His precocious dancing skills make me think by the time he is two he'll be saying "hey, Toots -- how's about you poppin' the top off a fresh brewski for me? Monster Truck Smackdown is about to start". :smokin:

I like this one ༄◦°˚°◦.¸:bby: ¸.◦°˚ˆ*♡∗¸¸.◦

It was interesting reading this thread....

1. I havent exersised for about 6 months and i went through a phase of Mcdonalds.. result? Gained 30 pounds... I can still fit into my clothing...its just reallllly tight.

2. I understand that there are various reasons why people may not be able to lose weight. HOWEVER..............

there are those among the crowd that:

Do not exercise

Do not get off the couch

Eat Fast food and TV dinners

Eat all day/ all night (snacking)

We cannot say that the above ^^ Is healthy behavior.

I started jogging about 3 days/week. I can already see the difference!

That being said.......

 

A Fat Nurse can MOST DEFINITELY be a good nurse!!!!

Eriksoln,

Your post should be enough to close this thing out. A more balanced view of this whole topic could not have been presented. I think that should've been the last post in this thread. I wish you well.

HiddencatRN......the horse beating is the BEST POST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My last word:

I do not care a fig if you are obese, or fat. If you can nurse and you are obese, great. If you're happy being fat/obese whatever, good for you; I really mean that. Just don't come to work and tell me you have tried everything (maybe you have), and whine endlessly that you can't do this or that. I don't accept that - look for another job that fits in with your lifestyle if you can't do nursing (I don't include other jobs in this).

Eating junk - and overeating as well - causes obesity, and not exercising makes people fat. There are other causes as well too numerous to list, (no-one has denied that on here as far as I can see).

Everyone has issues with their weight from what I've encountered. I think we all pretty much struggle. I gain weight when it's cold and lose weight in the summer, and I've always been like this.

Some people have realistic ideals re weight loss and being happy with how they look, others struggle such as anorexics. Most people can balance their intake of food (I DO NOT state there is 'good' or 'bad food'), and can exercise it off, some can't due to disease processes.

We can all control what we do or don't eat. If you put food in your mouth, YOU are responsible for that food going in there, no-one else. It's not daddy's fault cos daddy didn't pay you enough attention; it's not mummy's falut cos she was always out working so you comforted yourself with food, whatever happened has already happened. Bad things happen to people such as abuse and that is very sad. People will ALWAYS have issues surrounding food, but as you get older, taking responsibility for your life and your precious body IS a big deal - and we as nurses tend to enable people to stay in their comfort zones and not move out into the big, bad world. Bad things still happen when ur an adult and we have to enable people to deal with these issues as best as they can.

If people took more responsibility for their lives as they get older, and valued their bodies, maybe we wouldn't have these problems. NO-ONE is responsible for being overweight anymore, it's always someone or somethings fault, never our own. We have become a world of 'blame something else, maybe genes?' cos I'm not going to say yes this is my doing, and I need to change my lifestyle but I really don't want to and I really can't be bothered. NO-ONE IS MADE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR BEHAVIOUR ANYMORE! and I think that is really sad.

There are more overweight kids that you can actually SEE going to school etc, and who have diabetes, hypertension etc (according to news reports down here), than ever before. Kids never had these illnesses before.

When people make the effort to exercise and find one they like, they become happier and healthier. They may not all lose weight at first, but they will tone up and their life improves. They can reduce/cease hypertension, diabetes - this is all proven fact.

Takeaway/takeout outlets are more numerous and the population of fat people has risen since these have been introduced. People hardly cook anymore - we are all too busy.

People used to sit around the dinner table and talk re their problems at the end of the day. We don't do that now. Everyone works and has their own schedule, problems don't get aired, tensions increase which leads to other problems.

Most shiftworkers eat bad - that's not news.

No-one on here has said anyone deserves to be fat that I have read, and no-one on here has made fun of fat people.

Parents need to take some of the blame for making kids fat. I have seen numerous parents I have known or out at the shopping centre, stuffing hot fried chips into their kids mouths and drinking really gooey, sickening Wendys shakes. If you get kids used to the taste of fat and salt, that is what they will crave.

Better go as work is calling.

For someone who doesn't care, you sure have had a lot to say on this topic.

yep.

(5'10", 250#, and earning a great income at what i do)

and btw, did anyone see the recent study that found that people with higher levels of environmental chemicals in their blood are more likely to be obese and diabetic, that in people with low levels there is lower obesity and no relationship between obesity and diabetes, and children who had higher levels in their cord blood are many times more likely to be obese and diabetic as they grow? i wonder how much of the soaring obesity rates in my (boomer) generation and younger can be related to the chemical soup we grew up with and live in now? food for thought.

what is the article? i am interested - i want to read about the cord blood study part. thanks!

I find it interesting that most people have no trouble acknowledging that the skinny, sedentary guy/gal that we all know who eats like a pig and never gains an ounce "just has good genes," or "a fast metabolism," but many of these same people will deny until they are blue in the face that the opposite could be true as well. Apparently genes, hormonal imbalances, and individual metabolism only applies to the "naturally skinny" folks.

I've always been fairly thin, and while I try to exercise and eat right, I don't fool myself that I am somehow just more disciplined than my heavier friends. It's just the way my body is naturally wired. I can influence it to a small degree one direction or another with lifestyle choices, but for the most part, my weight has a "set point" that it wants to maintain.
