Quoting Squid Kid:" Star, I've told you before. I'm not "fat and happy" but I do have fat. And I did suffer a very abused ... [snip!] ... from your mental state. people who have fat do not need some punishment of depression because of what makes them who they are."
Our pasts can really do a number on us, can't they? I'm sorry that you had to go through that. :(
Quoting Petra and Toria:" Hell! I love the way I look fat and all. It doesnt mean I am not healthy. I sure am. But they will never ... [snip!] ... understand. Bunch of biotches with low self esteem. Nice to know that I am not the only one who likes being bigger and happy."
Well, Devil's Advocate and I have a pretty civil relationship and I support her and her fit and happy quotes. I see nothing wrong with encouraging healthy behaviors as long as it is not demeaning fat people (regardless of how active their lifestyle is). Different strokes for different folks.
I just don't get how so many people can presume to know what kind of lifestyle I lead or feel the need to tell me why I do the things I do on here. I feel the people that are really hateful are really just speaking from their own insecurities, you know? What people say to me has little to do with me, but a whole lot to do with them.
There is also a very real fear of fat and fat stigma in our society.
Quoting J+K=Bri:):" I am not fat but I love her quotes and pics! I don't think you're promoting obesity or saying that everyone ... [snip!] ... everyone should be comfortable in their own skin and not stress out because you don't look like a Victoria's Secret model!:)"
Yes! I am promoting self-love and self-acceptance with no qualifiers. That's really it. I'm not saying you have to be fat to be happy or that because you are fat you need to stay fat and be happy with it. It is more of a message of be who you are in this present moment and live your life now and find love within yourself as you are.
