I found out from one of my thin co-workers that comes from a family of bigger people...other people assume fat people can cook.

I do notice my co-workers always wanting to know more about what I'm bringing to the potluck luncheons....

It's makes me happy to know that people are anticipating good eats from me. And I can always count on bringing home an empty dish:)

What do you think they are write them here:eat1::eat1::eat1:
The biggest advantage is that I never have to look far for a nice, soft arm to squeeze if I get depressed or angry, and that always cheers me up in less than 15 seconds.

Being able to stay warm more easily, fall asleep more easily, and the general feeling of being softer all over (as well as the fun of being fat overall) are all benefits too, but the wonderful, overflowing softness, and being able to experience that soft feeling whenever I want are the only things about my fatness that I couldn't live without, and they're the main reason I gained weight to begin with.

It's definitely more comfortable than standing for long periods of time and my butt doesn't hurt from sitting as much. As specially if it's a hard surface lol!
This reminds me of a fun discovery my wife and I once made. I am a few inches taller than her when standing but when sitting side by side on a bench we noticed she was as tall as me, maybe even taller! She noted that her luxury sized butt was probably the reason for this and we were both pretty amused by it.:p

HM that was such a cute discovery.:)
When I was skinny my hubby said I had a hatchet ass when I would sit in his lap.
Over time as I gained I noticed having a big butt made sitting on hard surfaces much better.

Hatchet ass! Hilarious! So that's an advantage not of being fat but having a fat partner! When she curls up in my lap it's all soft and pleasant instead of bones and sharp!

And here's another: if I leave the toilet seat up my wife's butt is big enough to prevent her from plunging wholely into ice cold toilet water when using the restroom in the middle of the night! :p This is all theoretical, of course. It's never actually happened. I ALWAYS remember to lower the toilet seat!:D

Wait, this isn't the case for most people?? But the gap in the toilet seat isn't much bigger than the gap in the toilet itself, right?

It is big enough lol! I've done that when I was smaller and had a man in the house. Not a pleasant experience to go to sit on the toilet at night and keep going down when you expect the seat to catch you:( I've never actually fell in the water, but cold porcelain on your butt will wake you up in a hurry lol!

Bump Bump...

A big belly makes a good place to sit your plate of snacks while lying on the couch:D

Someday I will have a belly large enough to rest things on!


More advantages:

-Having a well-padded butt makes long car rides much more comfortable, especially on bumpy roads. Same with sitting on hard seats like bleachers. (I still bring a cushion to sit on, but my butt hurt so much more on those things when I was thinner.)

-There's more room for a cat to stretch out on my wide, squishy thighs when I sit.

When the cat is on my lap, and my wife comes into the room and sits down, cat will reliably get off of me and move onto her. Not that my legs are all that skinny, but the cat makes it clear I'm not nearly as comfy as wife is!
