    Big Girl

    I've been a "big girl" all my life. Most of the time, I don't even think about it. I am who I am and I am what I am. I don't let it define me. Like I said, that's most of the time. Sometimes I feel like a horrific cow of a woman. It used to be so much worse before therapy. Now...

    Sometimes admiration and acceptance gets a bit creepy around here. It always seems like I cant be honest and open with my body without attracting men with feeder and fat fetishes. To each his/her own but something about that type of alternative lifestyle just puts me off. I know...

    I weigh 255 pounds, and I'm only 16. I lost 15 pounds since the middle of summer but that's far from what I want to lose. I'm a 3x in women's clothes and my size clothes are so ugly and boring. I wear mostly men's clothes in 2x because their much more cooler and cost like $7...

    I have been plus size my entire life.

    I am currently a size 20-22 and it took me until this past summer to be 100% comfortable in my own skin. I love who I am inside and out, and although I have my bad days, everyone does.

    I used to be in regular store size 14, that is the limit for most stores that I like to shop at, but unfortunately I've gained so much weight that I am in a 16 and can no longer get clothes from nice stores.  I have no choice but to lose weight.

    Yes, It Is True

    I am tall and a size 26. I am a bigger woman but I believe I carry it well and I have beautiful face. There I said it! Most importantly I am a good, caring loving woman with more to offer than her lbs. Plus size, big, fat you name it but I am sick of this BBW Fetish stuff.

    I lost 55 pounds in a few months

    and everyone (colleagues, acquaintances) keeps saying how good I look /now/, how it wasn't okay for someone my age to be this fat, etc. As a result my bulimia came back full force after 10 years and i'm at the lowest I've ever been. and people still make fat jokes at me.
