Ohio. Specifically western Ohio. No one on Dims is near here except Rebecca who is in Cincy. Tons and tons of people in and around northwest Ohio, though.

Region: Northeast (NYC)

Pluses: Diversity (both in people and food choices) - for the most part people do leave you alone.

Minuses: Not the most Fat Friendly City. You have to walk everywhere to most things. Also, City Supermarkets tend to be tiny when compared to Suburban areas.

I live in London, England.

Texas here.

1. What are some of the positives of living in your area? One of the "fattest" states in the country. Lots of really great local cuisines from the best bar-b-que in the world to insanely tasty authentic Mexican food and everything in between.
2. What are some of the negatives? Humidity, heat, mosquitoes during the summer, lots of Christian conservative types. Not saying that last one is a bad thing, I'm just a raving liberal so to me.. yeah, anyway. Texas isn't as staunchly republican as a lot of the South Eastern states. 45% of Texans voted on the democratic ticket in the election, some analysts are actually saying Texas could be a swing state in the next election. Woot.

Well, that spun off into a little tangent, didn't it, sorry. Heh.

1. What are some of the positives of living in your area?
2. What are some of the negatives?
I live in Maryland which is a southern state since it's below the Mason and Dixon Line.

1. Positives in my area are that there is a great deal of bbw's and ssbbw's and that there is some racial diversity.

2. The negatives that I find in my area are-There is not much interracial dating, There is no plus-size scene as far as events. The area isn't fat friendly.

Unfortunately it's one of the leanest of our 50 states
But being closer to Denver seems to offset that statistic!

living in Portland, Oregon...studying for a post-grad certification.

I've been here 8 months and will most likely be here for 6 more? Its crazy how time has flown!

I'm originally from the UK, but don't really know if I shall return, continue to study, or get lucky and find employment here in the US?

Portland Pros: Super-beautiful natural landscapes, advanced attitudes towards environmental preservation and social sustainability, warm friendly city and people, similar to a European city in many ways (familiarity can be good)...

Portland Cons: The weather reminds me of home, similar to a European city in many ways (familiarity also makes the adventure less of a new cultural experience)

Kansas the state not the city.

Positives: There are lots of bbws/ssbbws here in a good race/cultural mix, size friendly in businesses moreso than in many other places I've been and seen.

Negatives: Weather that changes by the minute, Very blue law dominant, and given the size of the nearby metro areas, there is very little to no size related night life or gatherings without driving for many hours from where I actually live within the state that I am aware of.

Cons: Our sports with the exception of the Cavs fail epically, Jeffrey Dahmer went to my high school and his house is five minutes from mine, lack of fat men , and our weather...... its sickening

Yeah. I love living in Portland, as compared with living in western MA. I also simply enjoy it on its own merits. The weather is perfect for me. A lot of what I like is just aimless wandering and it is seldom too bitter out for that but I also like drinking dark beer and watching movies and the cloudy weather suits that well.

In terms of fatty power, I am confused by the statistics. We are supposed to be one of the smaller cities, but I see a fair amount of chub. I mean, we all drink beer and there's tons of vegetarians and vegans who eat tons of carbs, so maybe it is just guts. Which works for me.

Anyway, it can be tough to find an SSBBW friendly date spot at times if you don't want to eat at a chain restaurant. There are tons of great independent movie theaters and restaurants, but they all seem to have ridiculously small seats and accommodations. Small, as in I'm 5'11, 195 and I feel large and awkward. Walking and biking are also super-ingrained in the culture, so the notion that one's lady doesn't want to do those can be looked upon kind of quizzically, but it isn't usually hostile.
