A few excerpts from an excellent blog. You should read the whole thing.

The bottom line is that I am more than a size. I do not walk around every day dwelling on the fact that the number on my jeans is double digits. I don't introduce myself as "Plus Size Allie." I am just me. I happen to have black hair. I happen to have a birthmark on my face. I happen to have sensitive skin. I also just HAPPEN TO BE this size right now. It is a characteristic. It is a size. It is not my identity. I might change it or I might not. But you need to let it go.


'm not crippled. I'm not diseased. I'm not weak. I'm not emotionally damaged. I'm not a circus freak. I'm not a fetish. I'm not someone to feel sorry for. I don't need your help. I don't need you to motivate me. I don't need your diet tips. I'm not flattered when you point out whether you think I've "lost some weight." I don't need your fashion advice on how to find clothes to cover me up. I don't need you to marvel at how I find "such cute clothes for my size." I'm not dressing "so cute for a plus size girl" and I'm not a "pretty face" with so much potential if I'd just lose a few pounds. I'm a confident, complicated, driven, slightly neurotic woman who sees herself as more than an exception to society's rules. I am me and I am powerful.

I am not a victim. And if you see me as one, well then I feel sorry for you because you won't see me coming until the dust of your defeat by my big, plus size butt is blowing in your face.

    Be PROUD of who you are ..
    carry your SELF With DIGNITY ..
    we are more than 'surface' ..
    the beauty lies in the depths within ..

    it is truth ..
    that there are those who readily 'see' (have vision)
    but truly do NOT 'see' the depths of worthy Human life within ..

    Me thinks she does protest too much?

    Positive affirmation is not protesting or denying. There is a difference.

    My point is that she keeps saying how it doesn't affect who she is but keeps talkng about how it shouldn't matter. I'm about 60# overweight but I never really think about it or talk about it and no one around me has ever mentioned it or seemed concerned about it. Maybe if she didn't make such a big deal about her weight, no one else would either. My opinion is that it bothers her more than she says or maybe even realizes, if it really wasn't an issue to her why does she try so hard to make the point that it doesn't matter. Please do not mistake my take on the situation as criticism it is not intended to be that.

    She's a plus size model, much of her life is based on her weight. So yes, people comment on it.

    People comment on my weight, and I don't make a big deal about it. As a man, it is far more accepted to be overweight than a woman.

    Why is it more acceptable for a man to be over weight? That does not seem right?

    It is not right. It is a clear double standard. Just one of many when it comes to society today.

    Well, we can't change the world, we can try to elevate our standards and hope it will have an effect on those around us.

    I did read the whole thing, and I've always admired people who don't judge themselves by how they happen to look at the time, or how much they weigh. I don't do it to others, just to myself.

    I agree. Talking about other people's weight (unless you're a medical professional) is wrong. People of all sizes can be healthy and happy.

    She's also very spicy. : )

    I think we can all relate to this somehow - everyone always 'stereotypes' and always expect 'this' from you. Isn't it about time to let free of the people's expectations and get into what you really want? Whatever self image makes you feel better - go for it!

    I follow quite a few body positivity blogs myself and unfortunately I've also run into a few thinspiration blogs that were hateful towards bigger people.
    I see ignorant people telling fat people to dress to cover up, as if their precious, precious eyes can't afford to look at someone who doesn't have the "oh-so-superior" physique that they have.
    omg they don't realize that I'll look the way I want, and I'll probably wear clothes that people may consider *shock* *disbelief* "unflattering"

    I totally agree with that excerpt. Size doesn't determine our worth, and I am fat nd FABULOUS HOLLA

    also I just want to add on saying that--and this isn't directed at you, but at some of the people on here--that it's not cool to disrespect people who are skinny either.

    I believe that every girl is beautiful. You dont have to be a size 3 to look good. I think this woman is gorgeous! Not just because shes beautiful, but because shes confidiant. That makes you pretty no matter what. I have no problem with girls like this. I have problems with the girls that seek self pity, and attention. They complain about their weight but dont try to fix it? I dont get it. As for this girl. I love her point and what shes saying.

    What is a size 3? European sizes are so different here we start at a four which is tiny and the skinniest person wouldn't fit into it! Btw I'm not a guy I'm using my boyfriends account because this question really interested me:)
