    Got a job... BUT the bad news is....

    I got hired today for a new job that sounds great. But the bad news is, I don't have any business/dress clothes that fit. I also have no money. They have a dress code (no tshirts, no jeans, etc. - standard business wear). I'm REALLY worried about this. I posted on freecycle, so I hope...

    Maintaining friendships

    Do you ladies find that as you became larger, maintaining friendships got to be more difficult? if so, do you think it was because YOU were embarrassed/uncomfortable about your weight so you avoided the friends, or do you think the friends were embarrassed/uncomfortable being around you? Or...

    Rambling confusion .. sorry, long

    I know I haven't been here long, but I've lurked for a while, read a lot, posted some. And I'm even more confused now than when I first came here. On a friend’s recommendation, I visited and joined here, because it is specifically for the promotion of fat acceptance. After all, all people...

    Hygiene Issues

    I don't have any trouble with washing and keeping clean, although some days are more troublesome due to back pain. I still manage okay. At 275 pounds, I figure that if I weighed much more than that, I may have difficulty. But since I haven't had a problem with it, I can't really relate very...

    Do you ladies ever resent the fact that some people have the metabolism to eat whatever they want and not gain an once, where if YOU even SMELL the same thing they ate you gain 15 lbs? at least, that's how it seems.

    Nude Modeling and its effect on my own self image

    In 2002, I became a nude model. A friend of mine was doing something called "the Mask Project" where he took nude photos in certain poses, all of women .... all different shapes, sizes, colors, ages. He had us slick our hair back and put on various masks so nobody could tell who each photo was...

    What Do YOU Do To Feel Pretty?

    What do you ladies do to feel pretty in a society that says women over a certain size CAN'T be pretty? I don't wear makeup very often, but I do try to wear jewelry unless I'm doing housework or something. Since I make my own jewelry, I always have something nice to wear if I want to...

    I'm currently job hunting. I have impeccable credentials, a very well put together resume, excellent references and a solid work history. If skill tests (typing, etc.) are required, I ace them. I got a call to go into a law firm in early August for an interview. I wore my chocolate brown...

    Costume ideas for big women

    I'm 5'9" and about 275 lbs, which is a size 22 for the most part. I go to local science fiction/fantasy conventions and costuming is a big part of those things. I'd LOVE to be able to create a steampunk costume, but finding the right items in my size is very difficult! One persona I've come...
