    The Introduction Thread Part 2

    Hi @Barbsjw I just thought that I'd let you know those things about myself, so that my posts aren't puzzling, when you see them.

    The Introduction Thread Part 2

    Hi, Barbara. Pleased to meet you. What a fascinating job. I'm retired now but I was deeply involved in diversity and inclusion as a trade union rep and through voluntary work in the LGBTI+ community. I'm gay, I'm a polar bear and I'm a gainer.

    What did you buy today?

    I'm going shopping shortly. I usually shop on Saturday. I love grocery shopping, because I love eating. That's why I'm a fat man and that's why I'm happy.

    What did you buy today?

    I did my grocery shopping over the weekend. Water chestnuts and kombu seaweed were on special. I love shopping for food, because I love eating. I love eating, because I love being fat. So, I love doing the grocery shopping.

    What Are You Happy About Today? Part 3

    I'm happy today, because earlier today I tweeted this in a thread about space-invaders on aeroplanes: "I'm a big man but I try not to space-invade. My bête noire is guys less than ½ my size taking 2x the space I do. It's just toxic masculinity. Defenestration from 30,000 m usually solves the...

    What is your weight right now?

    I don't know what my weight is right now, because I need to buy bigger scales. I certainly have plenty of evidence of continuing growth. Let me put it this way: "Going up. Room for one more."

    What Are You Happy About Today? Part 3

    I'm happy today, because I had a routine doctor's appointment and I was too heavy for their scales, which only went up to 130 kg (approx. 286.6 lb). It was hard not to let the smile on my face be seen. I'm so happy that I'm a fat man.

    What is your weight right now?

    I'm to heavy for my old scales. I'm trying to get a good price on some new scales. The ones I want weigh up to 250 kg (about 550 lb or a little over 39 stone).

    My Fat Attraction!!!

    I felt something similar. Even when I was thin, I identified as fat. I was fat on the inside. It was like being in the wrong body. I wouldn't say that it was dysphoria. It was like the feeling that people get about how they should have been a certain figure out of history or a certain...

    My Fat Attraction!!!

    My fat attraction doesn't come from anywhere. It's always been part of me. I always thought that fat people were so wonderful, even when I was a child. When people asked me, "What do you want to be, when you grow up?" I always wanted to answer, "A fat man." I was to scared to say that; so I...

    Sounding fat?

    Even the people that one would expect to be experts about this seem to be divided. Weight gain definitely affects breathing. That is because certain muscles tend to be restrained by the fat. In very fat people, this can manifest itself as a noticeable breathlessness. Sometimes the effects...

    Sounding fat?

    I remember discussing this with a friend. We played each other recordings of various men's voices and the other one had to decide whether or not they were fat men. We didn't seem to be able to tell the difference. This doesn't mean that there was no difference, because it wasn't a scientific...
