Thirteen Things You Probably Didn't Know About Overweight People

This is my experience as a woman of size. I do apologize is this offends anyone. :)


Thirteen Things You Probably Didn't Know About Overweight People

1. Pssst, we know we're fat, quite assuming we want to order diet soda with our lunches.

2. We love bright colors, will the designers please quit using the most offensive prints they can find in our clothing? Here's a hint, there's a reason why skinny people don't want to wear the elephant/tropical/giant flowered/geometric print mumu/shirt/pants/skirt that you've created. It's UGLY.

3. There is no need to stare at us, there's more than enough to go around. :)

4. Big people need love, too.

5. Just because we are overweight, that doesn't mean we live like bears in caves. We have homes, lives, careers, kids, siblings, spouses - just like normal people.

6. We like food just like everyone else, the only difference is we don't throw it up afterwards.

7. Food Addiction is just as deadly and difficult to kick as alcoholism, drug addiction, nicotine addiction.

8. Life is too short for bad food.

9. Just because we are large doesn't mean we're to be religated to the fat best friend, sympathetic mom-figure, the eternal bridesmaid or any of that crap. We're hot, sexy and ready to GO!

10. Big can be BEAUTIFUL.

11. Close the magazines and turn off the television - you're life will be much happier if you do.

12. Big people have caught on that Cosmo, Elle and other glossy magazines are not the end-all be-all of fashion.

13. Want to know what is sexy? Confidence!

Great list. Big people are people too and they are kind, loving, giving, etc.

Happy TT!

Very entertaining list! And there's no need to worry about offending people. Someone or other is bound to be offended by just about everything anyone writes, but it's their problem not yours!
