No not I. You must be thinking of someone else. I actually got temp banned from the fitness forum for not pandering to the pussies. I was (and still am - I'm just less vocal now) militant with my diet/exercise regime. They didn't like that. Said it intimidated them and made them feel bad about themselves. It was a huge issue at the time.

No staying power. Simple.
It can be done. I can say no to desert because I would rather have a hot body and non of the emotional turmoil that goes with it. Good thread (I know some don't agree) but it's an easy way to discuss ways around it.
It's weird. I know girls who give a running commentary on how something is bad for them and end up eating the crap anyway. I think it is just a way of talking themselves into it without taking any responsibility. That or they're just idiots.
It's because the typical weight-whinging female eats from emotional impulses. Men are more accustomed to recognising hunger and eating because of that.
I read an article about it recently- if a guy gets hungry mid-morning, he'll have his dinner early. Something savoury. Whereas the "typical" girl would reach for a sweet snack. Similarly, women are more likely to indulge in sweet and fatty foods to deal with stress, sadness etc, whereas a guy is more likely to act towards sorting it out.
Painting a favourable image of my gender here, aren't I.
It's true though. The girls the OP describe are very common, and are the ones with turbulent emotions and without the strength or wisdom to actively solve them.
