Big Jew Asks “What’s the fattest thing you’ve ever done?”

Posted on Updated on

Hey guys,

I’m not exactly proud of my fatter years, but sometimes I look back and laugh about how much of a fat-man-mentality I had (… or have). I stumbled across this hilarious forum the other day – “What’s the fattest thing you’ve ever done?”. I truly admire the honesty, whilst feel slightly disgusted at some of the confessions. In the spirit of the post I thought I’d share with you some of my fattest things I’ve ever done….


The Cookie-Dough Strainer 

1. When I was 16-ish (during my fattest period) I used to skip sports afternoon on Wednesdays, go home for lunch and order the “Pizza Hut gut buster”. I used to get a stuffed crust pepperoni pizza (my mum is going to KILL me for admitting that) and cheesy nachos. I used to eat the whole thing, but that’s not even the worse part… it would come with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough but I’d be so full I’d melt it in the microwave and sieve out the ice-cream, leaving just the cookie dough chunks.

Getting stuck in the pool 

2. When I was 17 I was playing waterpolo in the school pool and I got my fat arm stuck in the side of the pool. Everyone had to get out of the pool and they called in engineers to get my arm out. Lucky enough I managed to pull it out before it got too embarrassing.

Yom Kippur Cupcake massacre

3. Good Jews have to fast for 25 hours once a year for Yom Kippur. I’ve never quite made it through the whole day. One year I decided to bake a whole batch of cupcakes for the evening post-fast family feast. However I found myself eating half the batch and got so embarrassed that ate the rest and never told my mum that I even baked them in the first place.

I want to know your fattest moments – if you want to remain anonymous email them to me – Be honest! We’ve all been there hunny

    Terrible what we do to “hide” evidence! The worst is when it is not even intentional. Like yesterday, there were a few chips left in a bowl after my son and his girlfriend came to visit, and I started eating them because I thought tossing them in the bin felt wrong. Then I realised that I was not hungry and did not even crave them, and I was making MY body the dustbin – what’s the difference between ‘discarding’ food in a bin and eating it just so you don’t have to toss it away?

    Eye opener for me!

    The “Fattest thing” that i do all the time (and I mean ALL THE TIME) is eat, not because I am hungry, but because it is lunch/dinner/whatever time. We’ve just been away for a weeks holiday where we would have breakfast, lunch out (often with dessert) then dinner time would roll around, am I hungry after a 3 course lunch? NO, but hey its dinner time and we must eat a full meal…. and because it is holiday time, that also means dessert…… for a second time that day!!!! Stomach is screaming “No more” head is thinking “shut up you fool, its dinner time”!

    I am also one of those people who take “all you can eat” to mean a challenge rather than an offer. And I am sure that there are many more “Fat” things that I do if I wanted to really think about it/admit them.

    Anyhow, great blog- certainly makes me see the humour in this dieting malarkey!
