Could not have said it better myself.What I DO hate is when someone who has a crazy-fast metabolism like that talks about how all fat people are lazy pigs, because it shows a) they find the fat itself unattractive to the point of demonizing it, and b) they lack the ability to understand that other people's bodies might respond differently than their own.
I absolutely felt that way when I was younger. (even not much younger!) Now, however, I realize we are all just different folks. I wasn't born to have the body of a thin woman. I came out fat and tried to fight it for 30 some odd years. 'I is what I is' :happy: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.
This was beautifully said, Super. I agree wholeheartedly.. i know that a big reason for people hiding the amounts or trying to reduce the impression of how much they eat has a lot to do with the prejudice they feel out in the world. most people don't want to feel like an example of the "wooo she eats a lot" stereotype. but at some point i think it might be healthier for fat women as a whole if they embrace the reality of how much they eat and are open and ok with it.
What do you think would be better about you if you were thinner? Do you want to be thinner because you would/could do more things or do you just think you would look better?I think part of the reason that I resent it so much is the simple fact that I don't WANT to be a BBW, and wish I were thinner. *sigh*
The thing I'm wondering is what you feel you can get -- or would like to get -- from a site like Dimensions. Are you hoping to come to a place in your life hwere you can love your body, fat and all?I think part of the reason that I resent it so much is the simple fact that I don't WANT to be a BBW, and wish I were thinner. *sigh*
Well, only speaking for myself, I'm thrilled to be back here for the "sisterhood"... even if only virtual. I have NO overweight friends. I have no one to go to for fashion advice, relationship concerns, body issues, or whatever. I'm literally giddy just reading all of the posts and being immersed among a group of similar folks... at least on at least one dimension (pun intended, I guess) of our lives.The thing I'm wondering is what you feel you can get -- or would like to get -- from a site like Dimensions.
