Default Quick, pick!

If you had to be one of the following at the age you are right now:

Anarexic or Dangerously Obese?




for me, i'd pick anarexic because it's easier to gain weight than it is to lose

Annorexic no doubt.

1. because in America thin is (sadly) seen as a good thing while obese is seen as disgusting

2. like you said its easier to gain weight than it is to lose it

3. if you just throw on some baggy clothes nobody will notice how thin you are, but fat is impossible to hide

4. if you're annorexic you can still go outside, enjoy life, etc...but when you're obese thats really hard

or sometimes people are just naturally fat no matter what they do, it's all in the genes.

No. Even with bad genes, a person can still get to a healthier weight. Being obese is almost always cause by poor eating habits and no exercise. How many 400lb people eat salad's and run/walk a mile every day?

Whoa, at my age? 14? Well, if I was dangerously obese at the age of 14 (and I don't think that uncommon in the US) I'll probably be in a wheelchair by the age of 18, so I'll go with anorexia, just because I can gain the correct weight back anyway.
