    Big, Beautiful Woman And Loving It!

    I am a plus sized woman who loves the healthy, vibrant full body I drew for this lifetime. My long journey of foolish, unhealty dieting attempting to change the body type I was born to have that finally got me to the point of saying 'What would it take for me to enjoy...

    What'S The Point In Being Beautiful

    All my life I have been told I'm pretty to be a big girl. I'm not really sure but I used to look in the mirror and think what's the point in being beautiful if I'm fat. I have experience so much hate and ugliness as child that I often doubted if I was really beautiful. Now at 30...

    Apparently.

    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.

    Honestly?

    I'd look stupid as a size 0.  My collarbones are longer than size 0.  Chances are, my ribcage would be too big to fit a shirt that small.I'm happy as I am.  My body was built for strength, not skinniness.  Sure I can stand to loose a few pounds...but then again, who can't...

    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 Know What Group This Is, But..

    My Journey:

    This is my journey, my struggle with society and with myself....   As long as I can remember I have always been over weight. Always labeled the fat girl. Probably since the age of 7 or 8 it has always been that way. My family were feeders, they would feed me to protect me...

    Sister/Stranger

    Today my thin sister was complaining about her weight. She was mad because she couldn't find a pair of jeans that fit perfectly. I told her "try being in my shoes." She responded with, "if I was that heavy I'd commit suicide." She knew she'd messed up. A few seconds after she...

    A New Body To Contend With

    I'm recently plus-sized - well, kinda. I hit this high from my life-long state of being overweight about a year and a half ago - what's recent is my willingness to use this term in describing myself. I was always desperate to lose weight and did a lot of ineffective (in the long...

    Stop With The Discriminating.

    A few years back, I was dating this guy. He was smart, successful, not gorgeous in the traditional sense, but he had a big personality. I was so drawn to him. He didn't live too close, so we would only see each other a couple times per month. One weekend he called me as I was on...
