Being Fat

Throughout my childhood I was always called fat. I was the "fat girl."

As a morbidly obese woman I often heard the snickers and felt the stares, however it wasn't until recently that I experienced the feeling of what it's like to be called fat by another adult to my face. It hurts. As badly as it did as a child. Perhaps even more so because it brings up all those old memories, and opens the floodgates to even more feelings of worthlessness. I must remember to rise above. I am no longer that 400 pound woman. Sure, I'm not as thin as I was in 2011, but I'm not as "fat" as I was in 2008, either.

"Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me."

Just be kind. You never know the battle someone else is fighting, or where they have come from.

  • Modern times, and the over abundance of food, is very new to the human animal. There are a lot of reasons for being fat. That being said, as a general rule, I think fat people burn less calories than thin people.

    This may be a disadvantage in modern times. Just a couple hundred years ago, when things like the Potato Famine occurred, that low metabolism would have kept you alive when many other people starved.

    Fat people are survivors. People will mock them, ridicule them, but one day something is going to happen. Those people doing the mocking will be doing the starving and the fat people will survive. All it takes is an asteroid, big volcano, or nuclear catastrophe and the balance will turn.

    Don't use this as an excuse to over-indulge, but be proud of yourself and your hidden strengths. Mother nature is never wrong, there is a reason you are like you are. You are the most beautiful women in the world in my eyes.

    Love you always,
