Thursday 13: Super Size Me

I watched the movie in the title of the post all the way through for the first time last night and boy did my thoughts go all over the place!  Good gracious!  

1) More than 1/2 of America is obese.  Yikes!  That's a lot!!
2) He gained 5% of hi body weight in 5 days, 10% in 10???  OUTRAGEOUS!!  
3) My head started hurting.  It was psychosomatic.  His was and so was mine thinking about what he was doing to his body!
4) I started working out right there on my bed.  Leg lifts while keeping my abs engaged.  Did you know smaller people fidget more than overweight people?  Better start fidgeting.
5) Started pinching my middle.  Part of it was watching those calipers.  Lol.  I wanted to know how much percent body fat I am.
6) Covered my eyes.  Ew!!  I don't need to see a gastric bypass surgery to know it's dramatic.
7) Wanted a veggie or 8.  This really had me considering my intake!  I considered calling my observational short partner who cooks a lot of vegetarian food and asking her if she was feeling the need to show off!  Lol.
8) Wanted a Big Mac and some of those crack-like fries.  What?  I know it wasn't supposed to be but that was also a giant commercial.  I was READY!  There's no such thing as bad press!
9) Knew it was bad to want it.  Lol.
10) Grossed out by McNuggets.  The description of how they make them was McNasty to go ahead with his overused joke.  It was funny the first 3 Mcs.  Then it was like OK 9 Mcs later!
11) Shook my head as I walked past the Krispy Kreme doughnuts I had in the kitchen.
12) Drank water.  Had to at least mentally off-set it, huh?
13) Really, REALLY wanted a big mac and fries!  Still haven't gotten it yet, but I'm jsut waiting for the weekend when Rah and Stace and Drew get here.  No McDs but I know we'll get some GOOD eatin!  Lol.

The very idea of spending a month eating ANYTYHING for breakfast lunch and dinner is the height of absurdity.


I get the visual and whatnot.


It wasnt until i took in two small children who punctuate all food related issues with a reference to McDonalds that I understood what it was about.

McDonalds is a treat of sorts.


I would say i go about twice a month


Once on the cheap tip (Double Cheez with Mayo added and a McChicken with a dollar fry (I get the drink elsewhere)

THen I go all out and get the Large #1 with a Dr. Pepper.

Asa matter of fact...I think I will get one of those today on my way to work.

Ok my sister has that on DVD and watching it was like a bad car wreck. I couldn't look away!!

And I'm glad I wasn't the only one that was grossed out, then craving the food 20 minutes later.

I've stayed away from that movie. Obvious reasons.

DollFace said...

I had the same reaction to the movie (well the 20 minutes I actually watched).

Good eats...YESSSS!!!! I think I'm going to cook several meals for the week over the weekend.

I totally believe the stat about half of people being overweight. Especially in poor areas where mac-n-cheese is cheaper than salad supplies.

Anyway, I didn't eat at McD's for a long time after seeing that, but the fries sucked me back in.

I haven't seen this one, but its on Instant viewing at Netflix, so maybe I'll check it out. I can see myself grossed out.

No McD's this weekend, okay?

ROFL at you doing leg lifts while watching :)

I'm a nurse, and parts of that movie made me ill.

The Goddess said...

I'm one of the obese ones. Ok, not obese, but I've gained so much weight over the last few years it doesn't make any sense.

I started my diet/healthy eating change this week and I'm hoping I stick to eat.

I'm so queasy I would have probably puked trying to watch a gastric bypass. YUCK!!!!!
