Afraid of the stares and the whispers, I had fought them all my life. When you are as big as I am, you are always seen but people have a way of looking right through you.

As most people here know, my health tanked a year ago and I lost my SSBBW status and now I don't know how to describe myself. I am not even 300 pounds now. Strangely enough, I have been to the mountain. I was super big and now that I am not so much anymore, I find that it still doesn't matter. It's just a label, just a label. Let me say that again, just a label. It only matters how I see myself. The warm, loving, giving, beautiful person I am and I always was at 440 pounds or 280 pounds and every pound in between. I am still me, good and bad, and otherwise.

I am not bait, by saying I was a SSBBW, it was a description of my physical self. I never thought I would ever catch a man that way and I don't think I'd want to.

I am a BBW and a SSBBW because I have lived both of these realities. I am a woman first and foremost, I think that being a woman is, by far, more important than anything else. I devalued myself as a fat woman and that was the most shameful of all. I can let the labels go and just be, I can be a woman because all along, that was the most important part of who I am and will always be.
Fantastic post steely, but it won't let me rep you. Will someone please take care of that for me

Can I just say that I hate the terms BBW and SSBBW as a whole? Seriously. Few things drive me more crazy more than the acronyms. I feel like they take away the whole part about being a WOMAN... like... A PERSON. BBW and SSBBW make us just sound like... things.

Personally, whether I'm 260 lbs or 560 lbs, I will always consider myself a bbw... no sense for me to throw in the super sized....
At well over 400lbs I am most definitely an SSBBW,but offline i don't use the expression BBW sounds good and feels good...

I agree with you, I've grown tired of those terms. I also don't like the automatic inclusion of "beautiful;" it feels patronizing. (And hey, maybe someone is a big ugly woman and proud of that fact. What do we call her?) Still, I like the idea of a term that signifies that someone is fat, but in a positive kind of way. I like "person of size," but I realize that comes across as waaaay too PC for a lot of folks.
