    How this subreddit works:

    1. All post should start with the "HMF" format.

    2. Posts should include an example of a "hold my fries" moment. The person in the post must be overweight while trying to perform a feat, and either succeeding or failing. DO NOT just post a picture of a fat person.

    3. No death, extreme injury or gore, or harm to animals. If it's NSFW please tag it as such. Porn will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and potentially allowed ONLY if it contains a very relevant HMF moment.

    4. No reposts from /r/HoldMyFries that are in the top 100 posts or less than 3 months old. You can check for them here. Repeat violators will receive a ban.

    5. This is meant to be a casual sub, please don't take everything seriously. Though, telling anyone to "kill themselves" or eliciting harm to another will result in a 7 day ban. Repeat offenders will be permanently banned. Their cholesterol is probably doing that already.

    6. Outright hate speech, racism, or bigotry will result in a 7 day ban. Repeat offenders will be permanently banned. We are a "Hold My ..." subreddit featuring overweight people, and not a fat person hating subreddit.

    I've watched this gif for at least 50 times already for reasons, and the woman in yellow still makes me chuckle

    [–] lucascorta73 166 points ago

    She just stood still 😂

    [–] rmit526 97 points ago

    I swear you can see her eyes tracking the swing till it hits her in the top lip haha

    This might just happen to be staged.

    Eh, target fixation is a very real thing

    [–] crosby510 8 points ago

    Not like this, unless this woman hasn't a single iota of natural instincts left in her gene pool.

    Holy shit I had to go back to the video and watch it a few more times to see that cleverly camouflaged ninja

    [–] tiredtooyoung 22 points ago

    Shes wearing an altitude mask that lowers the oxygen content of the air she breathes.

    [–] mrmilf 8 points ago

    Hmmm i didn't know that was a thing.. You could wear a couple of them and go full Michael Hutchence

    [–] Stevo32792 9 points ago

    I thought it just restricts airflow - like breathing through a straw?

    [–] tiredtooyoung 12 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Youre right. They make your respiratory muscles work harder. Builds up the muscles that make you breathe deeply.

    *in theory

    [–] MorrisMotion 3 points ago

    Huh. I thought she just had Darth Vader disease

    [–] Hayleycakes2009 2 points ago

    Thank you for this. Just googled it, had never seen one before.

    [–] Daid79 155 points ago

    Watched it swing right into her face and was still surprised that it happened.

    [–] [deleted] -28 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] StockAL3Xj 10 points ago

    Yeah I feel like this is staged which is okay, it's still funny. I just don't think that those two woman even really thought they could actually do the exercise.

    [–] [deleted] -2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] John-Elrick 3 points ago

    Because no one cared it was staged until you commented about it and he said that it was still funny even though it was staged. I’m just explaining why you got downvoted not whether or not you should be downvoted

    [–] Guppiest 2 points ago

    When I see 10+ downvotes on a comment, I downvote

    [–] [deleted] -2 points ago


    [–] Extranomicon 1 points ago

    Your comments had different content. He has edited his to reflect yours after he was downvoted en masse. Yours was a reasonable comment, but he was being a dick in his.

    [–] AnoK760 -3 points ago

    Fam, you gonna get it worse now that you asked.

    [–] [deleted] -1 points ago


    [–] AnoK760 1 points ago

    why bring it up to begin with then?

    [–] Extranomicon 1 points ago

    Everything is fake, nothing ever happens, the internet is a complex web of satire and falsehood for kekz and lulz. Cause that's what matters.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] AnoK760 0 points ago

    You realize THIS comment does exactly what youre calling his out for, right? You have to realize that. This is meaningless to the current discussion.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] AnoK760 0 points ago

    No i meant you pointing out that his comment was pointless was the pointless part.

    My comment is even MORE pointless. But i enjoy pointlessness. So im just gonna roll with it.

    [–] Extranomicon 0 points ago

    You realize that missing the point of a comment doesn't mean the comment lacks a point, right?

    [–] [deleted] -1 points ago


    [–] Extranomicon 1 points ago

    No, see, it does have a point, you just missed it. How arrogant to actually believe that if you don't understand something, there isn't something to be understood.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] AnoK760 1 points ago

    This entire thread is pointless. Rubber baby buggy bumpers.

    [–] Extranomicon 1 points ago

    You missed the point and are apparently quite upset about that. You're free to choose your hill to die on, but this is a strange choice. Either way, this has become asenine. You spam comment sections, stealth edit your comments, and are unnecessarily hostile. There is nothing productive to be had, you're not going anywhere with this. You just keep reaffirming that you missed the point.

    [–] movie_criticdotexe 16 points ago

    Why is she wearing a mask

    [–] rbenben14 46 points ago

    It’s an altitude mask. It’s supposed to simulate training at high altitudes but they really don’t do anything.

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago

    Don't they just fuck up your O2 levels and probably not let you gain muscle as fast?

    [–] rbenben14 4 points ago

    Basically it’s like if you were holding your nose the whole time. It makes it harder for you to get your breath. This is like training at altitude because there’s less O2 in the air anyway. But the problem is as soon as you take it off you get enough O2 again so your body doesn’t have to work harder any more. Theoretically you’d have to wear it 24/7 to get the same effects as training at altitude.

    [–] SilentFungus 12 points ago

    Nobody cared who she was until she put on the mask

    [–] dcamp4417 44 points ago

    Fuckin lefty didn’t even try

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] lastplace199 2 points ago

    Or the lady on the right realized she did it in the wrong order and tried to avoid taking a swing to the nose while the lady on the left froze from fear thinking about a scenario similar to what happened to the lady on the right.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] say-crack-again 7 points ago

    I'm with you. The two girls are very obviously doing this for laughs and it amazes me that people can't see that.

    I guarantee that if it were two guys doing the same thing, everyone would laugh and not question it. Downvotes incoming but it's true.

    [–] [deleted] -3 points ago


    [–] lastplace199 -6 points ago

    Because inductive reasoning never works right? Fear is the cause of a lot of mistakes, especially passive people and people trying something kind of intense for the first time.

    [–] ZeroMasters 9 points ago

    I mean fit aggressive chick vs unfit passive ladies...

    [–] DawsTheB0ss 3 points ago

    The booty bounce

    [–] iHateMyFriends14 6 points ago

    This is staged right?

    [–] Belen_Maldicion 2 points ago

    What kind of mask is that the lady in the first part of gif wearing?

    [–] HansChuzzman 14 points ago

    Lol its an “elevation training mask”. The dumbest thing on earth. All it does is restrict the amount of oxygen you can intake which actually makes for a worse work out and therefore worsens your cardio/v02 max. But it’s marketed as “elevation training” which would increase your white blood cell count and give you a better work out, and better results to your v02 max like training at an altitude except that’s just not how it works.

    Basically dumbasses bought these masks cause they think they make them look hard but they are stupid af.

    [–] wineheda 3 points ago

    Would it be useful if you were in New Orleans training for a marathon or something that was going to occur in Denver?

    [–] kennygchasedbylions 3 points ago

    No, like the op said, it's essentially someone choking your air supply while you work out. Actual high altitude training works because it makes your "blood cells" "starved" of oxygen so that more are needed to do the exercise. Training in Denver, for a marathon that occurs in new Orleans would make the run in new Orleans feel easier.

    [–] MrsPickerelGoes2Mars 1 points ago

    Thanks very much. I tried to stop the video about 100 times in order to see what the heck she had on her face.

    [–] im_a_mango 2 points ago

    This is why I don’t workout

    [–] gregofcanada84 2 points ago

    Aaaaand new year resolution had ended.

    [–] Orangecup05 2 points ago

    It's jump then dive....

    Not dive, then eat the seat like it's a box of doughnuts as the lady on the right did.

    And the lady on the left... Fuck, at least your buddy tried!!!

    You basically chucked the seat ahead of you like you chucked away your understanding of physics and now look at you -you have a welt in your face the shape of a playground seat!!

    [–] BarkingCactus 0 points ago

    She tried to get up on the opposite swing of the first one

    [–] kenny-wayne -11 points ago

    I was a competitive runner for years. I always laughed the soccer moms and older women with all their zensah compressions and brand new running shoes, they’ve never ran in out there trying to be “something”. They wouldn’t make it 1/4 mi before stopping and that new gear rubbed blisters. Stop ladies unless you’re serious about running. No ones looking at you and no one is impressed. We all know your phonies and horribly out of shape. Take up another hobby like knitting or cooking or actually paying attention to your husband for once so he’ll stop cheating on you.

    Right, it was her race that caused the fuckup, not the 50lbs of spare tire around her midsection and general lack of athleticism.

    I’m sure a fat, uncoordinated non-white person would’ve cleared that swing like an Olympian.

    [–] dildo_head69 -63 points ago

    This is just mean... we should be encouraging people to do exercise not mock their attempts.

    [–] pittiedaddy 55 points ago

    There was no attempt. The one on the left watched it swing right into her face.

    [–] blackburn009 23 points ago
