Fat Doesn't Wrinkle

There are hardly any benefits to being overweight, right? It's bad for our heart, our lungs, our liver, our organs, our feet and knees, etc. It's just unhealthy to carry so much extra weight around day in and day out. It takes a toll on our bodies to live off of sugar, soda and processed crap instead of lean protein, fruits, veggies and water.

The one and only benefit I can think of is that fat doesn't wrinkle. Have you ever noticed how many people look so much older after they drop a lot of weight? Fat plumps up your skin and makes everything look smooth, well, except for that cottage cheese look on thighs but even super skinny girls have cellulite. Anyway, I saw this video and it got me thinking about the one and only reason I'm not planning on getting down to what the charts say I should weigh and plan to keep on a few extra pounds.


I love Anita Renfroe 'cause I like it but I should have put some cream on it ;)


  1. heeee cute. Thanks for sharing :-)

  2. I knew to expect sagging skin when I lost weight, but I freaked out when all these *wrinkles* showed up on my face! It took me a while to figure out that they were formerly filled with fat. And yes, they looked worse when I got closer to the chart weights, so I stayed closer to the upper end of the range for my goal.

  3. I just noticed the wrinkling so bad on my face THIS week in fact, while I was at the beach. The loose skin everywhere else was bad enough, but wow, I'm looking hideous, lol. I tried to listen to the video, but I can't get the sound to work. I turned it up on my computer and on the video itself and I got nothin', lol.

  4. Blubeari: You should check out the other Anita Renfroe videos. They are all great.

    Cammy: I think most people look better and healthier with a few extra pounds anyway.

    Tammy: Stop it - you look beautiful in those pictures and should be proud of every wrinkle. I'm sorry you couldn't hear it 'cause it's really good and she talks about how she wouldn't trade any of the wrinkles. Maybe if you go directly to youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaruNs_7okY) or Anita Renfroe's site so you can hear it on there. It's worth it.

  5. Hi. Brilliant! SO funny!

  6. I lost a bunch of weight and gained a bunch of wrinkles. I'm not sure what's better --, well, maybe I think I'm sure. Wrinkles weigh less than fat so they are easier to haul around. Also, my knees are suffering and they aren't suffering from wrinkles.

  7. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to at the end of my weight loss journey lol :(
