Fat Acceptance


I was looking at the pictures that my girlfriend took of me this weekend and I can't believe how awful I look in them.

I look twice the size that I *think* I am. I'm so disappointed.

Until I saw them, I'd been semi-ok with my weight. You know, saying I'm fat and I should lose weight, but not caring too much, because I thought I still looked alright--curvy, with a few extra pounds, but nothing extreme.

Seeing this pictures, I thought to myself, 'my god, I have to do something soon, before I keep growing.' I never thought I'd get fatter than I was, but I steadily am and I feel like there isn't much I can do about it.

Sure, I can eat healthy, but it'd be a hell of alot easier if I had a kitchen and never had to rely on getting my food from someone else. And eating healthy costs SO much!!!!! God, it's so much easier to just get some cheap fast food than to spend $6 or $7 for a salad or something. It's outrageous!

I've never been so ashamed of the way I look.

I think you looked beautiful.

It does suck how much more expensive healthy food tends to be. In addition, organic foods which mesh better with my values are WAY more expensive. It's rediculous.

When I watched Super Size Me I never wanted to eat fast food again, but that didn't last long... out of sight, out of mind ya know. I think I just need to buy it and watch it every single day to keep it fresh.

I've never seen it, and I probably don't want to. :-\

I liked Super Size Me a lot. I think they were very practical about some things that needed to be stated just that way. Some aspects were blown a little out of proportion though.

The worst problem is that we grow up eating TOO MUCH. Even the health standards are too much. Eating healthier at first can be as much as 4 times the cost but as you train your body to act full when you are full, etc, the cost rounds out.

I was doing well. I lost over 100 pounds, and I still have quite a bit left to go...I had a hectic holiday season, and I was happy in a relationship, so I started to let things slide a little, gained some back... but it amazes me that no matter how long you do well it only takes 2 weeks or less to break your healthy habits! Still, I have the knowledge now that I really CAN do it, so I have more to work with and moving forward is easier than it was before.
