If I were still fat, I probably would not have gotten so involved in the Occupy Providence movement. How come?

Have to do with occupying too much space? Have to do with transportation challenges getting to the site? Have to do with the availability of food and drink? Have to do with being embarrased about being seen at a heavier weight? Have to do with how your clothes fit at that time?

Challenges is the corporate-speak PC version of issues or problems. We in the corporate world do not have problems, we have challenges that we can overcome....harumph harumph.
Was they kind of food you ate not likely to be available? Does occupation involve a hunger strike? You less likely to be able to go without food back then?

Hmm, being fat you were not a good example of someone in need. Is that relevant?
Something else about your appearance that is relevant? Something that you did when you were fat that you don't do anymore relevant?

Does one have to know something about Providence to solve this puzzle?
Is there something about the businesses in the vicinity of the occupation that is relevant?
Something about Burnside Park that is relevant? the facilities available? Street Vendors?

Is the nature of the protest itself relevant? Could this be any protest gathering? Is carrying placards relevant? Chanting slogans?

I seem to recall your saying that you restrict your sweet intake to one day a week (or maybe a fortnight I can't quite remember), is this relevant?

RECAP & HINT: My love of cookies, candy, donuts, & similar delights is crucial to this puzzle. When I was fat, I was in the blissful situation of eating all I wanted of those delights, but not, alas, I get to indulge to my heart's content only one day every two weeks.

Do you tend to get a sugar rush or behave differently on your goodie eating day?

You don't go to the protest on your eating day, yes? Do you feel you could negatively impact the protest's message if you did?

Is Burnside Park like most parks insofar as there would be lots of people walking dogs? feeding ducks? Presence of any animal relevant?

Your mouth would be continually full, so you couldn't shout slogans?
Your hands/arms would be too busy conveying food to your mouth that you couldn't hold a sign?
Or were you just afraid it would be bad publicity?

Your mouth would be continually full, so you couldn't shout slogans? no
Your hands/arms would be too busy conveying food to your mouth that you couldn't hold a sign? no
Or were you just afraid it would be bad publicity? I would NEVER support a political movement that considered fat people bad publicity

Is the climaate in Providence relevant? or would this apply no matter where you were?
I can't believe you were too fat to fit into a sleeping bag! Besides, you could always zip two together.
I'm just flailing around in the dark here!
Uh - does darkness have anything to do with it? Daylight? any other kind of light?

I can't believe you were too fat to fit into a sleeping bag! I weighed 257 pounds (at 5'1"), but I have no idea whether that was too fat for a sleeping bag, because I would no sooner sleep outdoors than underwater. Besides, you could always zip two together.

Are there other relevant people in the park aside from those taking part in the protest? If so are the doing a particular activity?

If you went to the park to say play chess would you have gone when you were fat?

Does the park have any unusual physical properties that have relevance? Does anything out of the ordinary take place there?

so you wouldn't have gone to the park to join the occupy movement when you were fat? and you wouldn't go on one of your eating days now? is it somehow difficult to eat cakes etc when with the occupiers? would you refrain from going because you would not then be free to eat what you want? do you think it would somehow go against the 'cause' to be seen to be overindulging in treats? not in the spirit of the protest? would somehow give the wrong impression of you? of the occupiers? is there an element of wanting to show solidarity with the poor? and this would seem less sincere if you were eating treats?

so we know that you would have been less likely to join occupy on a particular day if you had been eating indulgently that day - correct? and now it's OK because you only eat indulgently infrequently? allowing you to join occupy for most days? so we need to find out why you would not have joined them if you were eating indulgently? and it's not related to any feeling of shame for eating indulgently - correct? and not related to having to share your treats - correct? would it actually be possible for you to attend occupy on indulgent days? is it just that you would choose not to? is that because you would somehow lose a benefit by doing so? gain a disbenefit? would your choice not to attend be in your own interests? in the interests of others? would it be altruistic? selfish? sensible? is it related to the physical effects upon you of being indulgent? would you be physically uncomfortable if you attended on an indulgent day? psychologically uncomfortable?

What you seem to be getting at is right: the crucial factor is not whether I was fat but how often I indulged. If Occupy Providence had been around when I was fat & losing weight, I would have gone there as often as I actually did (2-3X/week).

Would you have thought that people might look down on a fat person bringing them goodies?

Have you become more aware of the joys of getting a treat when you haven't had one in a while since losing weight? So because you now only indulge once a fortnight, you realise how hard it will be for people who are there all the time and can't get much nice food?

Have you become more aware of the joys of getting a treat when you haven't had one in a while since losing weight? No--I LOVED eating everything I wanted. I stopped because I think that the quality of life is much less important than the quantitySo because you now only indulge once a fortnight, you realise how hard it will be for people who are there all the time and can't get much nice food? No--I always realized this sort of thing.

did you feel that being overweight might make you seem like one of the fat cat capitalists? that being slim is more PC?

No, I don't go along with any prejudiuces against fat people. that being slim is more PC?No--I may be liberal, but I don't want to be PC!! Remember, the crucial factor is not whether I'm fat but whether I eat whatever I want only rarely.

Do you have more free time? More money? Is it relevant how difficult you find it to keep to your diet? Does going to the protest help distract you from wanting treats?

So does being involved with the movement help you stick to the diet? Because you physically can't get the treats when you're there? Because you'd be expected to share anything you brought, so couldn't sit there and gorge yourself? Because you give food to the protesters so it isn't in your house tempting you? Does providing for other people make it easier for you to deprive yourself?

This is close enough for me to declare a

********** SPOILER *********
Have you noticed how I'm always asking people in the chatroom to post pictures & descriptions of cakes, cookies, & candies they've eaten? Since I don't get to eat anywhere near as much of these delights as I long to, I'm hungry for vicarious thrills. So when I learned that people at the Occupy Providence site wanted food donations, I got vicarious thrills 2-3x/week by bringing them what I wanted to eat. I would have done this occasionally even if were eating everything I wanted & hence didn't need vicarious thrills, but I probably wouldn't have gone to the park as often. So this is my THIRD puzzle that Enjay solved today. Thanks, Enjay (as well as everyone who did the groundwork). Please check out my THIRD new one!!
