:P Yes, but have some content!!
For some strange reason this screams: Please step away from the music.
You watching that video made me realize. It's true what the meadia and I also realized. I'm fat not morbidly though you know I going to find those plse she talked about and find nice clothes that I feel pretty and comfortable im.
In the morning...on Monday cuz that is mah day off!
I like your caption! :)
And it's so true. There's so many places out there that sell nice clothing for women that are heavier, and it's better then trying to squeeze into something that says it's a large, but in truth is the same size as a small at the store next door. It's so strange the way clothes are made and sized these days. I just don't get it.
Oh my god, I was just going to mimic, "Step aWAY from the stands!"
OOO I recall the Fat Rant...it's good to see these kinds of things every so often.
Caption: "Only you can prevent jazz hands."
I just snorted!!!
HAHAHA! I LOVE IT!!!
Love it!! (The Fat Rant) And that woman is *beautiful*...I'd date her, if she was into women. :-)
Here is my favorite image as of late:
My caption being, "Here come the big guns!"
*blinkblinkblink* Holy, WHAT!?!
That is so bizarre.
I think it's wonderful that she is so confident. My first thought watching the video was "wow, that lady is beautiful!" I didn't realize she was fat until she said she was.
Everybody is so nervous about talking about weight in this country. Media promotes an idealistically thin version of the American woman, which is not really feasible for a lot of people. As a reaction, we've had tremendous problems with eating disorders in this country. On the other hand, the statistics about obesity in the country are very alarming--the majority of states in this country report that more than half (and more than 75% in a couple cases) of people in their state are obese.
So on the one hand, people are afraid to talk about weight because they are worried that it might encourage an eating disorder. But people also worry that if you make being obese O.K., then you are condoning a lifestyle that is unhealthy and encouraging people to not take responsibility for their own health.
My ideal for myself has never been based on numbers, it's simply based on making sure that my lifestyle is healthy--eating good foods, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly. If I can do those basic things, I could care less what my weight is.
It can definitely cause health problems, but I think a lot of people are naturally heavier then the norm.
And I think there's a major double standard in this country.
You see it all over tv. Men are overweight and it's cool, in sitcoms, and they always have a skinny wife.
When since Roseanne, have you seen a heavier set white woman in a television show that wasn't represented as absolutely disgusting? Like what's her name on Drew Carey's show.
It's really frustrating to see, I think.
What a great Rant indeed, not only doest it work for fat people, but people of any weight and size. What you got flant, you are who you are and theres no point living in a future that may never be and ignore the present!

Strangely enough, that fat video makes me feel worse about myself. Why? Because I still see it as such a hopeless cause. My weight will always rule me, rather than the other way around. I wish it weren't true, but I can't be thin without a great struggle, and if I'm not struggling then I feel guilty for not trying to better myself.
So I try to convince myself that I'm okay being fat. But I'm not. Being fat just means I don't have the willpower to get thin again.
The icon I used today is from when I had the willpower, obviously.
I love the fat rant video, lol.
Marco and Guy were a little unsure about the choir director's choice of "Stop in the Name of Love" for the opening number of the Spring concert.
