    I ate a lot more salad when I was fatter. I eat a lot more pork belly now that I'm thinner.

    I had an old friend who ate what I considered extreme health food and played a significant amount of sports. He was still my definition of "fat".As in, saggy rolls. You can eat what appears to be healthy by conventional standards and not be. He might have also had a legitimate health issue. Who knows.

    I think women are most attractive when they have a nice weight distribution to their ass and thighs. So the Dove women look pretty good. I think my favorite models are with Victoria Secret. Adriana Lima has a glorious amount of curves!

    There's also a very good reason why everyone likes staring at Kate Upton. She's quite curvy!

    Everyone has different opinions on what is attractive on the weight spectrum. Seeing as many come here for weight loss, I can also see why this would be a touchy subject.

    Depending on where you live, you could definitely see folks like the circus photo every time you leave the house. There was a considerable amount of change in people's weights as I moved from Arizona to Washington. I also think poverty levels might have something to do with it. I always think I'm seeing more heavily overweight people when I am doing things in poorer neighborhoods.

    So interesting you posted this. I have some awesome panoramic photos from 1933/34 Ringling Bros Circus. We always comment on how 'every day' looking the fat lady seems. She is front and center in the photos, as if to show she is the most alarming. I literally can go into a fast food restaurant today and see many like her.

    I was teased for being fat as a child. Looking at pictures, I was not... but I was never the stick thin girl with chicken legs. I had no belly and was athletic. Times have changed! I'd be considered skinny by today's standards. The worst is to see the children with bellies. That makes me so sad.

    Because salad is disgusting compared to cake and pie, and to force yourself to eat something disgusting goes against loving yourself.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    It's about accepting that you are currently failing at taking care of your diet properly, while acknowledging that you are still a person with value.

    I'm quite certain you suck at some things. Diet is very hard to control unless you know the right way to eat.

    Your suggesting is pretty much the class "eat a carrot, b!tch" advice. Fat people must be pretty stupid since it never occurred to them to eat healthier.

    look - i wouldn't wear terry cloth daisy dukes and i weigh less than 120lbs. It boggles my mind to see that someone 100 or 150 lbs overweight thinks it's appropriate.

    i was inspired by the lady's comment that so many overweight girls just let it all hang out.

    don't worry, i know that skinny peeps and old people etc dress inappropriately too (they're all on POW too).
