The thread probably could have ended after this post.

If a woman chooses to be fat because she's training to swim the English Channel, that doesn't make her any more attractive to me.

so i think she must not understand that I choose to be somewhat light because I am a runner.
Kelsey is wrong, by the way. The latina woman wasn't "just being nice." She was being honest. She was letting you know that, insofar as you choose to be "somewhat light," your choice may have social or sexual consequences that you may not like.
In my running prime, I was taller and lighter than you are. Some women -- in fact, many women -- are going to be turned off by that body type. You can say that their preferences arise out of misunderstandings, bad cultural biases, issues about their own bodies, or even a desire to find men who look like their fat fathers, but that doesn't change their preferences. Now, some of those women may also find you more appealing after they get to know you better, but body type may still be a deal-breaker for many.
Life is tough in the animal kingdom.
Power is masculine, not body type. Body type is just one way of demonstrating power, and thereby masculinity.

Attractive women don't date attractive men, they date men who date attractive women.

This sums up the female psyche when it comes to body image pretty nicely.
