Does anyone have a fear of gaining weight like a phobia? Why do people think fattys like me are lazy? But the thing is people think just because I am overweight (keyword there) that I can't exercise. I run 5 hrs a day(not all at once more like 1hrX5 a day) and I love to run. I wish people would stop thinking that fat is evil and that fat people can't exercise. I can drink a red bull and beat a skinny girl any day with the activities I do. Move over skinny girls.... it's our time to shine and show our fat cute love! More of me to love... ok I am ranting.

Good for you that you have the discipline to be up and running everyday... I can't even get my lazy butt up to get some exercise! I have always told myself, ok I should start going on a diet and prove to myself that I can be thin but heck I never really succeeded for when I start to lose some pounds I would feel like I have done enough and go back to my eating pattern! Darn! Yeah I agree fat people are not ugly... we are indeed cute ahahah!!! More to pinch and squeeze.. yeah certainly more to love...

hahah that was cute!! But really people are people we are all human and we need love like anybody else. We need emotional love, and for people in the media to tear down our self esteem and to set skinny as the standard for beauty is wrong. People need to learn if you love your body more you will attract people who love you the same way. Trust me on this one I walk in a club with a big @ss I get more attention than the drunk model sulking in the corner lol. PEOPLE LOVE URSELF!

I know how you feel as far as the common prejudice of obesity goes. I used to fit in the skinny category until I got to my last years of college. I gained about 100 pounds in three years and because of my sit down 40 hour a week job, I am too tired to exercise the way I want to. I can dance up a storm though and can show alot of skinny girls that a big girl can dance. So I guess your right, we need to start having faith in ourselves and love ourselves for who we are.

I am glad you guys understand where I am coming from because most people don't love themselves. I hate when people talk about their low self esteem. Anyways we should just be happy for who we are and live life like it's the greatest ever.
