The idea that she's "heavy" is of course utterly ridiculous.

But in the end a beauty pageant is all about the looks with certain expectations of how winners should look like. Hell yeah you're going to be jumped on when your appearance changes.

I saw her on tv and she's not "way too big" by any stretch of the imagination. They showed footage of her when she was in a bikini in the pageant and she looked very thin, so I think she can afford to gain some weight. Pageant or not, not a good message to send to any young girl. I'm sure she had probably deprived herself so much before getting into that bikini that she wanted to eat.

Domonique Ramirez, the 17-year-old Miss Antonio who was stripped of her title after being told to "lay off the tacos," has been given back her crown by a Texas courtroom.

The Associated Press reports that the jury deliberated for 11-and-a-half hours before delivering the decision, but Linda Woods of the Miss Bexar County Organization board maintained that she will have nothing to do with Ramirez:

"I'm sorry, there's no way I would represent her as talent. She's trouble," pageant director Woods said.

Woods testified during the weeklong trial that the size-2 teenager showed up to a bikini photo shoot overweight and made pictures "unusable."

But she told jurors it wasn't adding a few inches to her figure that cost the 5-foot-8, 129-pound college student her crown. Instead, she said Ramirez violated her contract by being chronically late for events or not showing up, not writing thank-you notes for gifts, and embarrassing the pageant board by turning down vocal coaching from an opera singer.

Woods said giving Ramirez the crown back was "an injustice for the city of San Antonio."

"It allows young kids to breach contracts and violate authority without any consequences. ... It sends the wrong message," she said.

After hearing the verdict, Domonique headed to the Our Lady of the Guadalupe church where she said, "I feel great. I left it up in God's hands, and that's why I felt I had to come here first."

She will now prepare for Miss Texas. There's no word on what will happen to Ashley Dixon, the Miss San Antonio runner-up who had the title for several weeks while Domonique was deposed.

With all the injustice going on in the world, I'm glad we're not overlooking the injustice of who is the teenage beauty pageant winner in San Antonio. This is a human rights issue, guys.

maybe if you're michael phelps and you work out 5 hours a day, but most of us need to burn an extra 500 calories a day if we want to lose one pound a week, and we're not going to be able to burn off the calories from soda, fried chips, and tacos in the amount of time the average person has to exercise in any given day.

also: stop smoking.

Apparently, God is a fan of beauty pageants.

Didn't I say something about moving? Physical activity?

I think you can burn the calories if you are moderate in all things.

often, what you think versus what is reality are two different things.

how much time in your average day do you have for physical activity? one hour? maybe two?

to burn the extra 3,000 calories eating fried chips and soda and tacos, you'll have to work out for a lot longer than that.

eat healthy foods as much as you can, enjoy "junk" foods in moderation.

stop smoking.

Which is it, do you want to moderate or "eat all the tacos you want, eat all the fried chips you want, drink whatever"?

You're constantly contradicting yourself, that or you don't understand the definition of 'moderation'.

I'm not even going to try to explain myself anymore.

I just suggest we all just relax a bit

Enjoy life. Don't fear food.

No one's tense, everyone's enjoying life and no one is fearing food...

As Irvine said so well, you have no clue about how our bodies work. It's basic biology.
