    The number one advantage, imo, is that you can eat whatever you want, and as much as you want.:bow:

    First post. Hi by the way!

    I agree with the previous poster. Eating whatever I want and more important
    how much I want.

    Another advantage is that I don't have to run on the treadmill
    to stay in shape. A pound or two isn't that noticeable nowadays.

    I'm not THAT big but after quite some time I've accepted
    that I'm not athletic and fit anymore. I'm not actively trying to gain weight. My gain is just a results of a change of lifestyle

    Kind regards

    Kong

    I'm not as easily affected by the cold. When I was thin I was always shivering in winter and wearing heaps of layers of clothing.
    Another advantage is that it changed the way I think about people. When I was thin I was always worried about what people thought of the way I looked. I still try my best to look good but if someone doesn't like the way I look, I generally just don't care.

    There are so many advantages to being fat. First you can eat whatever you want and not have to feel guilty about it. Also it is exhilarating to gorge yourself to a point that you cannot even move anymore. Lastly clothes are very limited. I cannot shop in most stores cause they do not carry my size so I usually stick with classic fit buttondown dress shirts and slacks.

    Fat people tend to age a lot more gracefully and look younger than their years


    I rarely have the issue of someone wearing the same outfit as me

    You are easy to spot in a crowd

    Jiggles feel cool.

    Cats like soft laps!

    More comfy hugs.

    It is easier not to get sucked into certain popular trends, because you are just never going to look that trendy anyway.

    People probably aren't going to hang with you to boost their own popularity or cool factor, so hopefully more heartfelt friendships.

    Constraints breed creativity. Because you'll face some barriers due to your size, you may look at options that you would never otherwise have considered.

    You are less apt to get asked to help people move, to be expected to take part in every charity run, etc.

    You may get priority on the front seat.

    You float better.

    And of course, if you want to be fat, being fat gives you a sense of contentment and peace in your skin.

    Great list Tad. Agree with all you said. You can add:

    * When going out with friends, they automatically save the front seat in the
    car for you because they know you would appreciate more room.
    * Restaurants that know you set aside a comfy table with plenty of room
    and don't suggest a booth.
    * You truly get to enjoy all the different types of food the world has to offer with no concern about calories or gaining weight.
    * Women love to be hugged by you because its like being wrapped in a warm, soft blanket.
    * Women love to cook for you because they always know you will appreciate their efforts and ask for seconds.
    * Women know they don't have to be embarrassed about having dessert when dining with you, because they know you will relish and encourage it. :)

    1. It screens out shallow people who would only want to know you if you were thin

    2. It drives some people crazy and that's fun to do.

    3. If you find someone who loves your fat, it's amazzzzzing when they poke you with love, when they grab your fat and jiggle it, when they whisper in your ear, "Hi, chubby" and "chubby" to you both means "hot stuff."

    I agree. When I go to my high school reunions I see that the bbw and chubby guys look younger without a doubt than those who are thin.

    I also have to agree that fat people age much better. Thin people seem to look older as they age. You never hear that in fashion magazines. "If your trying to look younger, it's time to hit the buffet."

    Asides from being way hotter?

    You stay warm easier,

    Sex is much more intimate,

    Fat clothes shops are never as busy so you can take your time,

    When you cannonball it makes a bigger splash,

    More room to tattoo your skin,

    Less room on the bed or sofa forcing extra and constant cuddling,

    Other people expect you not to make an effort so you can wear what ever is comfy,

    People don't get in the lift/elevator with you incase it breaks,

    We know exactly what we want,

    You are more accepting of other fetishs/cultures and creeds as we understand that not everyone is alike.

    OBVIOUSLY being able to eat constantly and in great quantity,

    You have to go clothes shopping for a new you every 6 months as nothing fits,

    We support small local businesses by ordering takeaway meals and by going to your local store to buy snacks,


    You never miss the good TV shows from spending more time on the sofa.

    And finally, you get to be yourself and be happy being that way!

    Ok, I really dont get this thing about eating what you want, when you want and it being a fat advantage.

    1- I know PLENTY of skinny people that eat whatever, whenever and they dont get fat

    2- Every time there's a comment made about fat people eating themselves to death, everyone here jumps on them, saying Its not always a food issue!!! blah blah blah. Saying an advantage to being fat is to eat whatever, whenever kinda goes against the whole "Fat people arent fat cause of food" defense that Dims people are so quick to use.

    Actually Saoirse is right thinking about it.
    I know alot of slim guys who have a similar intake as me, maybe more who knows.

    Ok, over-eating is something i enjoy but isnt an 'advantage'.

    Good call Saoirse!

    Not having to limit fattening food is my fat advantage. I can't speak for others, but food definitely got me fat.:eat2:
    However, I'm now losing weight for health reasons. I can do much more, and not have to depend on others. That makes me very happy.:smitten:
