I've been wanting to ask ya'll about what you think about the TLC show My 600lb Life. Its a US show for those of you who might not know. Idk I'm sorry ahead of time. 

But anyway what are your thoughts? Do you like the show? 

 

Personally, I like to watch it. Especially while I'm working out. It really makes me push myself more. 

At the same time I feel really bad that I judge these people...


Its not even completely the desire to be skinny again, but rather the fact that I despise food and everything about it.

I mostly feel bad for them. Unless it's one of the few people who don't listen to the doctor, etc. One or two episodes had someone like that who gave no fucks and it pissed me off :lol:

I like watching it when I workout. And when it's the new episodes, it stops me from wanting to eat/stops any binge urges.

Personally I love the show. It really helps me when i'm about to binge. I also find it very interesting to watch, to see how people let their weight get so out of control.

To me it reflects how they're the opposite of me but in horrible pain nonetheless. I'm emaciated but their struggles remind me of myself.

It's my Reverse thinspo. I don't feel bad for them. I also think their families should be put on diets too. They are also usually really fat.

I have a number of feelings about it. I like watching it while I work out. I feel it is kind of exploitative, although I guess the people who appear to be on it are getting help. I don't like the way it sensationalizes their problems and only gives a moment or two to their psychological problems, which I believe to be profound. It seems almost every one of them has some similar issues with an alcoholic or abusive parental background and this can't be an accident. I know some very large people IRL and I mentioned this show to one of them once and said that and the person I was talking to got kind of quiet and said yeah, they had an alcoholic parent too. So I think learning to eat your feelings at a young age is a common thread for people who get really large. It's like a kind of al-anon thing - overeating instead of drinking yourself.

 

And then like many people here I get really mad at the enablers in their life who keep bringing them food after they are bedridden and sometimes become upset when they are losing weight or even combative and non cooperative. WTF.

It actually makes me want to binge more. Like, oh i'm not the only one who does it so its fine. Reverse thinspo never worked on me which is a shame cuz my whole family is obese :mellow:

Idk how she handled him THAT long. Hes so fucked up.

 

This next episode is one i haven't seen but I've never seen any human with a face that large and I hate that I even had that thought.

And now I'm crying cause this poor kid is doing the same shit I've been doing for my mum who isn't even close to as large as this woman. All because she can't get up and do it yourself.

Lately with my mum its been so bad that my thoughts after she asks me to do something is always 'no why the fuck cant you get up and do it yourself. It would help you if you did it yourself'. 

We're slaves to our parents and its one of the worst feelings ever. 

 

I think I may have to stop watching this episode.
