The beer goggles post went poof! Boo hiss! Since when is being confident and owning your body a bad thing?

Celebrating being unhealthy is why our country is in the midst of a massive obesity epidemic. And it's literally killing our children.

Not seeing any positives there.

I can't understand confidence with an unhealthy, overweight body. I never will.

Being confident doesn't mean you should accept being the butt of fat jokes. Quite the opposite actually.

A lot of these women think that their insults and fat-shaming encourages those of us who are overweight to get into shape. Lord forbid we say anything about their being skinny though. We, as fat women, are supposed to be depressed, feel disgusting and ugly, and I've even read on here that we should only date other fat people.

Fuck that shit. We don't have to be a size 6 to be happy. We are big, beautiful women and anyone who can't see us for who we are instead of what size our jeans are, isn't worthy of being in our lives.

Never in my books. People should be happy for themselves!

You should want to be healthy to be happy, though. Diabetes and heart disease aren't beautiful, and you're purposely putting yourself on the fast-track to both. Why celebrate that?

Aside from taking high blood pressure medicine to counter the side effects of my ADHD medication, I am surprising healthy. I celebrate me being me, and if it offends you so be it. And just to make you feel better, I make my dd get out and exercise on the days I'm home and not working for 12 straight hours on my feet.

My husband and I have decided that you only live once, so why not embrace the excesses of life. I enjoy the excess of food, he enjoys the excess of flesh.
