    So I Realize...

    I absolutely recognize that I'm a bigger girl. I'm quite a bit overweight according to what we're told we should weigh. I've come to terms with the fact. I hate that being bigger has become synonymous with being unattractive. I know tons of gorgeous bigger people. Hell, I...

    Common Denominator

          5'6" and 260 lbs. (That's considered fat not only where I'm from  but anywhere else in the world). They say the heavier you are the less confident you are about yourself. It WAS true in my case. I never thought of myself as attractive...

    I Really Dislike the Word Fat!

    I am currently a size 16. I have never been tiny but, until 7 or 8 years ago I was very active and managed to keep myself at what I considered a "curvy, voluptious" but still healthy weight. Years of office work, back problems, migraines oh, and luckily for us women...

    Being fat does not automatically mean I am ugly.

    Neither does it mean I do not love myself. I love every single bit of me. I just need to be healthier! Do not assume that because I am fat, I am less than or easy! That is not a good look for you! :)

    Nope...

    Me, personally... I'm still ugly... And fat. No point in kidding myself, or trying to make any of you guys believe I'm not, lol. We are what we are.

    I Can't Decide If I Am A Beautiful Fat Girl Or A Fat Beautiful Girl

    I am a big girl. Fat to be exact. I'm not curvy or thick. I am fat. I'm not so big that I am disabled or so small that I can be considered an "average"sized woman. I am around 240lbs and I am 5'5. I'm 24 and have been big all of my life. I've dealt with being called ugly and...

    Here I Am...

    I think it's so hard to believe I'm beautiful even though I'm fat because growing up fat always meant "ugly".  I'm realizing that my interpretation of how I look can be and often is radically different from how those who matter really see me.

    So people say...or some people say.

    I don't really think I'm ugly. I'm just invisible because I'm fat.

    Size 16 but I feel attractive.

    I love the way men look at me. I dress appropriately as never expose too much. I notice those looks because it's not an all out ogling creepy stare. It's the double takes, the turning heads, the smiles and smirks I get when they think my husband isn't looking. I have been every...

    I Know I Am a Bbw

    I truly found that being on the heavy side doesn't mean that I'm ugly.  I have found more guys that are looking at BBW as something more to enjoy.  I mean a lot of times I can really enjoy myself without the fear of eating too much or enjoying treats.  Yes I worry...

    I Have to Be Honest...

    I am fat AND ugly.  The thing that disgusts me the most is my stretch marks.  Some women don't get any! God must have given me their share--and it sucks.  I got them after having my kids, but I can't be one of those women who say they're just "beautiful battle...

    Far From Ugly.

    Let’s face the facts here. I am sure as hell no size 0(not that I know of anyone who is). I am no size 7 or 8 either. I’m not even a size 12, which is the highest size they carry at the mall might I add. I am a size 16. I may be fat, but I am FAR from ugly. See this...

    I Answered Yes to This As I...

    I answered yes to this as if I say no it does not get printed. It does not matter if you are fat, thin, black, white or anything inbetween. EVERYBODY is beautiful if we can only look passed the sterotypes.

    Being A Bbw

    I use to be one of those skinny girls, the only problem was that everyone was always telling me I was fat. Now, I am a BBW. I did not think of myself as anything but fat, ugly and completely undesirable. Five months ago, I met someone who has helped me to see that I am beautiful...

    Big Can Be Beautiful
