Now this is more like it

I would use some cliche title like "Fat and Happy" but that would insult ME, so I didn't.

This so perfectly expresses my attitude about my body. 

Fat happens.  Get over it.  Yes, I can diet and exercise. In fact, I do.  But my body happens to LIKE being this size, I guess.  So what?  Why should you care?  Projecting YOUR insecurities on me, huh?  I'm happy, my husband thinks I'm sexy, and the doctor says I'm 100% healthy except for a disease that has NOTHING to do with my weight.

So why should I waste my time being upset about it?  Seriously.

As my buddy Cartman once put it, "I'm not fat, I'm festively plump."

Oh holy crap!! She is my freeking hero!!!

You can sit my me, Sister. 215 and a 16-18. Unless it's a top - then bigger is better. :-)

This is the size my body has settled at. According to my doctor I am VERY healthy. And by God I am happy as hell with myself.

Be happy with yourself, dear! That's the only thing that matters.

The people that irritate me are the self-loathers who descend into victimhood and scream about it. And they are many groups, not just overweight.

And for the record - though I didn't watch the whole thing so I may have missed some - (a) the smoking chick looked to be about as big as her friend in the car, and (b) I would not describe any of the ones I saw as "fat".
