“My physique is similar to Ms. Runk's (#1). Thanks to the internet falderal surrounding that photograph, I learned from blog commenters that I am not the healthy athlete I, my doctor, and the BMI scale thought I was, but obese, so unhealthy that I'm bound to drop dread any minute, and a bad example for other women.”

“Right!?! And the other side of that coin is that I, at 52, 125 lbs, 5'6", an athlete and very thin am somehow buying into what "the patriarchy" (literally saw that today on huffpo) says is beautiful. I must starve myself to be thin, etc..... I dunno, do you feel healthy and beautiful? Sounds like it. I do too. Isn't that awesome that we can be different sized and BOTH feel good.

Peace.”

“How is it a spinoff if none of the characters from the original are in it?”

Abdul-Halim Vazquez on Nov 17, 2013 at 12:18:44

“The mother is in it. Presumably the kids will be in it. And I'd imagine that other characters/actors will do cameos.”

Pjoae123 on Nov 17, 2013 at 10:35:31

“I suppose because it will focus on the mother and her circle of friends. Just as the mother did not appear until this last season with the current characters, there would be no need to introduce them into her life (even though the audience will know they exist) until toward the end of the story.”

“For me, eating low-fat is a surefire recipe for misery and cravings. Yet when I eat a calorie-controlled diet where 50% of those calories (roughly) come from natural fats and the other 50% from protein and produce, I'm perfectly happy, energetic, and maintain a 75-lb weight loss. And my doctor is perfectly happy, too (provided I don't tell him about the high fat diet and let him just look at my test results.)”

“Can someone explain to me why I'm supposed to care what Suzanne Somers thinks about anything? Except maybe why Jack and Janet are having zany misunderstandings?”

indywoman on Nov 5, 2013 at 10:43:08

“Can't a person write an article without you feeling you have to consider it? Is it a crime to write your opinion now? I don't agree at all with Suzanne's article, but I don't understand why everyone is trying to disqualify her as a human being, instead of just pointing out where she is wrong about this. Who ever said you were supposed to care about Suzanne's article? You clicked on this story, so clearly you had an interest. Suzanne is wrong on this one, but she is a US citizen and is entitled to her opinion.”
