fat and happy
April 9, 2002 02:54 PM

I started a blog a little while ago that was meant to keep me exercising like I should. And I suppose it motivated me somewhat, but it was mostly boring.

I've been thinking about converting it into some sort of group blog for happy fat people to talk about health and life and all that. I tend to wander around thinking my experiences are unique to me, and I'm not so sure that's true. In other words, I think we fat people need to band together. We need things to remind us that being fat doesn't equal being miserable, because there are way too many things telling us the opposite.

So I searched on google for things about happy fat people, and all I found were diet journals of people who aren't happy (and often aren't even fat). Until I found the Big Fat Blog and catay.com. They're not journals per se, but both are gloriously full of interesting news bits and stories.

In other body-related news, my dress for the party has arrived. It's strangely a bit too big, despite being made to my measurements. It works with the black hair, too.

your wicked thoughts

My boss was a rather overweight individual. 350 lbs I want to say. He now weights just a little heavier than myself (175 lbs) and looking pretty good and proportional I have to say. He became tired of the way he lived and basically made up his own diet that took all that weight from him in a little over a year. He writes a lot about how he felt then and how he feels now..or at least, he used to do so. At any rate, if you care to check it out, it's onephatman.com (used to be onefatman.com until he became skinny).

I've noticed that too! There are so few blogs about people that are happy with themselves. Anything else tends to be an ongoing blog of self-pity and self-hatred.

I'm not miserable being over weight. I would like to lose 70 to 80 LBS but thats only because I want to. If another anorexic hoe tells me that all overweight people are miserable and need to change I think we sjould eat her. well thanks for your site have a good day or night..

I weigh over 300 pounds now. At one time I lost 100 pounds by using dangerous diet drugs. Once I had to stop taking them, I gained all the weight back, plus even more weight on top of that. Th worse thing about being as big as I am now, is the way

people treat me. They openly laugh or make fun of me, and I find it extremely hurtful. If it were not for people like this, I truly would be happy with myself. I am successful at my job despite my size which is rare in most cases. I probably would be doing much better if I were thinner though. I am happily married, and even though my husband met me when I was 90 pounds thinner, he still loves me no matter what size.
