    Having various friends on the largish side and particularly females I often found them to be more careful on how they sit on a chair or waiting to take the next lift rather than getting on the next one.

    Do you feel like that avoiding situations where your weight might attract attention?

    I've found overeating in public is both a turn on and also at times embarrassing. I guess it depends on reactions I get and the type of people that are looking at me. Therefore, I try to sit somewhere I feel like the people won't be too judgemental. I try to avoid sitting near skinny or thin pretty people. I don't mean to have a bias or anything, but this category of people seem to be much more judgemental toward me.

    I'm also careful about where I sit. I worry about breaking something that might not support my weight. That's not maybe a big deal, but I am always conscious of the fact that I need to be careful about it.

    Meeting someone for the first time is interesting too. I worry that their reactions will either make me feel bad or worse, make me somehow angry. So, I try to think positively and be as cheerful as possible. It's definitely a very, very conscious effort.

    Yes, in particular for the size of my belly.

    Not at all. In fact I go shirtless most of the time, except for places where I have to wear a shirt. I don't care what others say about my protruding belly.

    Nope..not at all. I spent too much of my life being self conscious about my size in the past. I wear my plus-sized badge with pride and pay no mind to haters! :)

    Generally, no. But I do avoid getting into an elevator with only one or two females on it. I just feel uncomfortable about the whole situation.

    For real? Never even considered this. What’s your concern about it?

    There have been a few sexual harassment cases where I work. At least one was a supposed groping in an elevator.

    I don't think I am clostraphobic but I notice in more confined spaces I bump into things. It's kind of fun or funny too.
    Still don't think I am that big. I work out and feel strong and just big, not really big.

    About the only time is in the kitchen/break room at work. There are booths to sit in. They are bolted and don’t move. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to get in and sit comfortably. Other than that I’m only conscious in a positive sense that I’m getting fatter.

    As a gainer, I'm always conscious of my weight. I deliberately draw attention to it.

    These days at meetings I always try to get a seat at the end of a row. If someone pulls an extra seat to the end of the row I ask, if we can swap places, "so that I don't space-invade on the people sitting either side of me." It draws attention to the fact that I'm both fat and considerate.

    Hay man, don’t stare. It’s rude.

    These days I just ask, "Why are you staring at me? Are you a chubby-chaser or something?"
