    There's all kinds of threads about the trials of being fat...come on, Dimmers! This is a fat POSITIVE site...is there anything more comfortable about being fat or supersized?

    Hello everyone (again)
    The nicest thing about being supersized is having a true FA explore,and appreciate every part of me,and to be admired for me,it it wasn't for places like this and a few others,it wouldn't be this way...:)

    I'm told I make a very snuggly pillow. So I guess I'm more comfortable!

    Not a single one of my students is making it through the door if I stand in the way. ;) They were talking for about ten minutes about the fact that my hips covered the whole doorway, and trying to shove through just meant they got bounced back. I just said they should know better next time than to try.

    I can be pretty intimidating to jerk-asses.

    ;)

    Oh wait. Comfortable? For me? Or other people. Haha.

    For me? People think twice before saying anything to me about my size. I can actually see the gears working in their heads debating whether or not to risk their lives.

    For others? I give the best hugs.

    You want things that are better in my life because I'm fat compared to regular sized folks? That is a bit hard for me to say because I have never been regular sized - for the part of my life I can remember, I have been in the upper, upper percentile of weight class for women my age.

    However, I can know some things that I am better at, more comfortable doing, and things I believe are more easier to do while carrying around this excess layer of fat. things like -

    1. I can float better in water. I fact I can pretty much float like a cork.
    2. I was coveted as a red-rover team player.
    3. I have a self made, as needed, medical education.
    4. I have no fear of being kidnapped (a jacker will never get me off the pavement).
    5. CastingPearls mentioned that people have trouble deciding if they should risk their lives offending her. I have my own twist on this fat persona, called "Twisted Sister". I am working on perfecting the appearance of an very large insane woman, who probably should not be meddled with - better yet . . . . run.

    You're running for the Arkansas state legislature? I'll e-mail my cousin in Little Rock to vote for you! :)

    I am comfortable enough being an ssbbw that I can pretty much eat anything I want without guilt - no dinner salads for me! :blush:

    I have to agree about eating.

    Since I'm expected to eat junk, I don't feel so self-conscious about it. Whereas my thin friends comstantly get the "you shouldn't eat that or you'll get fat talk." So... for me... it gives more freedom to eat what I want because it'll either be expected or "applauded" so no harm no foul either way, really.

    Dear Doc, I couldn't possibly run for Ark legislature. I checked into some of the job qualifications and codes of behavior - I could never meet these high standards.

    1. No conduct constituting a criminal offense involving moral turpitude.
    (This is the real career killer for me.) For the tender lambkins out there - Turpitude means a corrupt or depraved or degenerate act or practice. Moral turpitude refers generally to conduct that shocks the public conscience, and of course "criminal" is an act you can get jail time for.

    Other codes of behavior required:
    2. No gross dereliction of duty.
    3. No gross abuse of authority.
    4. Non unexcused absence of a board or commission member from three (3) successive regular meetings.
