Thank you! I guess we all need to be good at something and the two things I am best at, are being fat and analyzing (Virgo).

And as far as any man preplanning, it is always appreciated. Even to this day, my husband will do something, even if it is small, like putting something more within my reach, and I greatly appreciate it.

PS, there are some things I won't leave home without and one of them, is the chair in the trunk. Who knew?, great minds think alike!

i probably need to upgrade my chair ...i'd just been using a regular fold out chair and would sit on it very carefully, but i've gained quite a bit of weight since i last used it and probably need to retire that one and find a new one. I think there was a post on the main dims board about this chair you're talking about and some of the girls didn't really like that one

Fantastic thread, Melissa... very good! And there's no doubt, you have an FA who's acutely aware and helpful when it comes to fat girl needs - Bruce is a pro.

All the points made are totally on target and valuable for any FA who's interested in the SS girls to know.

Great thread, I hope most of the guys here stay tuned.

my bad..i don't think they sell car seatbelt extenders on this website, although this website is an EXTREMELY useful ssbbw site www.amplestuff.com

I have a GM and was able to go to the lot and request one and they ordered it for me free. I believe i would be able to use that extender in any vehicle..not sure exactly. I wish i were more knowledgeable on this......

I am sorry if this wording seems harsh, but this is a complete bone of contention with me. And let me tell you, I was with my husband when he would do this in the beginning. We had made a commitment to each other. I don't think it has anything to do with commitment or size as much as the need for speed that some people have while driving. Trust me, this is the ONE thing that almost broke us up. It took alot of talking, crying, screaming and threatening to make him realize that it was funny and exciting to him and absolutely terrifying to me. I told him repeatedly, I WILL NOT die in an auto accident and that if I did and he was the cause, he better hope he dies with me cause I will haunt him the rest of his days.
Thankfully this changed soon enough and is no longer a desire for him.
If this guy likes you and repects you, he will slow down whether you are wearing a seatbelt or not. It is up to you how many chances you give him and how you approach it with him. I would definitely tell him that you do not want it to happen again and if he wants to drive that way he should do it when you are not in the car.
Most times, the little speed monsters realize it is much more fun to go a little slower and catch the sight of their beautiful companion bouncing along next to them, then the itty bitty rush from their risky driving.


Who knows, maybe he will buy you flowers or something as an apology. (just saying in case, he is a member, and needs a hint) hint hint
HA! I appreciate this post cause I often back down on things like this even though I was obviously pissed. He wasn't driving over the speed limit, by the way, which was the first gd thing he said. GRRRRRRR!

This is why I drive everywhere whenever I can. I can NOT handle this either, glad you worked it out with the hubby.

Though, can I say, that I'm disappointed in my choice of a car. I have a early 2000s chevy cavalier that fits me just barely. I can buckle my own seat belt (but it's tight - you know one of those fits where you have to take off your winter coat?). I thought far enough to accomodate myself, but I didn't think about other SS folks who I'd love to share rides with.

I've dated on SSBHM and he awkwardly gets in and I don't know that I've ever seen him put on a seatbelt. I JUST realized this. I do this to OTHER people in MY car. Damn.

As L&L said, I think its time to think about purchasing a seat belt extender. I don't want to pay it forward to other fatties I'd like to drive around. And I do love to drive me some fatties!

I think it's been touched on as tangents in other threads, but nothing as direct as this... so it's a great resource... and I think I'm going to stick it. It's going to be a wealth of information, would be a great place for guys to drop questions and get helpful/informative answers - maybe without the dose of snark that often welcomes them.

My chair is a metal folding chair that is made to be stronger to hold more weight. I bought the set of four a few years ago to go to a wedding and now I don't know what I would do without them.
I will try to find them again online and post a link. They have a cross bar on each set of legs and the little thing on the side that keeps them from bending from too much weight is double reinforced.
As far as the outside chair, I had one and the tops of the legs dug into my thighs and that was uncomfortable. Plus, they need to be on a NON smooth surface. The little feet need something to hold onto for traction or they will slip and you can go kaplut on the floor (I know, I have)

And I would have to say that as an SSBBW, seating, or lack thereof, is my BIGGEST concern in my "fat" life. I think about the seating in every situation I may or may not have.

I have spent many nights trying to design the PERFECT chair for a big person. That would be strong, comfortable and portable. When I do, you will all be the first to know. Maybe that will be my million dollars, huh?

One more thing I'd add:

Be careful about assuming mobility for different fat and SS folks. There's such a wide variety of mobility issues, even for folks at the same weight and height. There's a lot of things that factor in, and some SS folks could be upset if it IS assumed that they'd need a drop off, or constantly asked if need a rest when they don't. At least for me, I want to do the most possible in all situations, and that could vary from day to day even!

Good communication is key in striking that balance.

and one more: If you're over 300 lbs with a blister and anywhere on the island of Manhattan, it's going to be a stressful situation. I'm convinced there ARE NO CHAIRS anywhere on the island. Heh!

Oddly enough, this was one of the things that I took into consideration when I got a new car last year- that is, fat girl fittability.

i iz lerning!

Really, some of it is learned through experience, or hearing about it... but it didn't really take long, for me at least, until it became unconscious that I noticed where the chairs were wider, or armless, all this stuff that I never really took note of before.

But there's still a lot that's there to be learned, and some of that was just brought up here.

EDIT: Glad this got stickied, it happened before I finished writing it

Well, I sorta got my car at a not-quite-so-savory place, not a dealership, so maybe that's one for the record books. I would have never have thought to ask for that even if I bought direct from a big-name dealership.

I completely agree. I read posts and look at pictures and am amazed at how many things the big people here DO. I am less mobile and by nature am lazy and spoiled, so I tend to take advantage of any opportunity to rest or walk less.

And I think that it is worth saying again -

COMMUNICATION AND CONSIDERATION matter the most in ALL relationships.

We could totally do like a Good Idea/Bad Idea thing with it, like they had on Animaniacs.

If I may tell a personal story that meant alot to me.

Many years ago, my sister in law was graduating with her Masters. The actual graduation was on a weekday and only my inlaws went, but we were all going out to a restaurant after dinner to celebrate. It was one that noone had been to yet.
Although my inlaws obviously knew I was fat, we had only begun using the term "fat friendly" in front of them awhile before that, to make them aware of certain things that affected me specifically.
Well, to my great surprise, they were "aware" enough to go to the restaurant a week ahead and scout it out. When they called to invite us, they also stated, "and we went there in person to make the reservations. The table we are getting is very roomy and accessable and the chairs are armless, wood chairs."
I was jumping up and down with joy. They actually went out of their way to do this and it proved that they "got it".
That was one of the best dinners I ever had.

it was a huge relief to me when Bruce's mom laughed off me breaking the bed. She was very nice about it and it was a huge relief to me. It's so nice when they are also making an effort

But there's still a lot that's there to be learned, and some of that was just brought up here.

EDIT: Glad this got stickied, it happened before I finished writing it
