It's a social thing, some people love food like myself. I dont eat junk, it just means I eat a lot and shows on my body. Being fat doesn't mean your unhealthy at all... you can be normal and have high choresterol or whatever have you. I'm almost 300 lbs but guess what I have a clean bill of health.
I love being fat I used to avoid it and make fun of fat people. I used to have abs and work out constantly but now I sit around and eat all day and I've gotten fat from 145 to 215.
I came to EP with that question. I have no desire to be fat or even mildly overweight (and thankfully I adhere to neither of those categories at present). I find the conversations about massive weight gain quite grotesque. Yet there is also within me a profound fascination for weight gain in its milder forms - though never in my own gender. I enjoy meeting old friends and finding that their curves have softened a little. Why? I know not. Why do you prefer the end of the day to the beginning, or like star-gazing or foriegn accents? I came to EP with that question, and have not yet found an answer.
Turn the question around...."Why do people like being skinny? I mean the ones who are actually trying hard to lose weight."
Skinny does not equal beautiful or correct. Neither does fat. People come in all shapes and sizes.
Your question rings of the self serving, "People aren't fat (unemployed, poor, sick, ...) unless they want to be," position of some self righteous people.
It is probably rare that people "like being fat." I don't. Eating is how I cope with stress. Like me, most people who over eat do so as a way to deal with stress. Food additives are shown to make us hungry when we shouldn't be, which increases our food intake and boosts food industry revenues.
Food can be as addicting as narcotics for some people, but unlike narcotics, you can't just stop eating it.
Over weight women are propositioned less than skinny women. After dieting to achieve their ideal weight, many women regain the weight because they don't want to deal with constantly being harassed by men.
Some women find that their husband is less jealous when they are carrying a few extra pounds -- a huge incentive for staying over weight.
There are as many reasons as there are people, and most would prefer to be at a healthy weight if they lived in a perfect world where everyone was treated with respect.
My two cents.
Thanks for the clarification and I'm sorry if my reply was a little heavy handed. I try to be understand and tolerant of fetishes (fat, BDSM, cross dressing, ...) no matter how personally distasteful I find them. In the case of over weight people, it can make them feel special, important, desirable, and wanted; things we all want. Unfortunately, some people can't get those needs met in a healthy manner and turn to physically harmful lifestyles.
My take on it.
They like the feel of it and being able to eat whatever.
Becuase maybe somewhere in their life they were rejected for being underweight or skinny for whatever reason. Maybe it has something to do with sports.
wow you hit it right on the point xD also if thats your picturee your really pretty
Thank you! ;D
Because that's what we're good at I'm fat I luv it and I luv the attention it gives me
Why do people like being anerexic, even though they look half dead.?People can have skewed views about any physical attribute or really anything.
