View Full Version : I want to stay fat because....

I've seen this in some other groups and I think it's a great idea!

I want to stay fat because...

-I love still wearing maternity pants to work when my kid is almost 2!
-I love that my waist is nearly 10'' bigger than my husband's and that my waist is the same size as my hips!
-Exercise gives me too much energy; I'd rather just lay on the couch every night watching stupid tv
-I love having bloat and heartburn!
-It's great getting to donate all of the clothes that are too small for me, it really leaves a ton of room in my closet
-When I see someone I haven't seen in a while and they say "wow, you used to be so....skinny" it makes me feel great!

This is a great idea!

I want to stay fat because...

- I like having a hard time finding pants that fit because there is no Petite Plus section.
- The roll of back fat under my bra is so sexy.
- The double chin that appears in every picture is my best feature.
- I like having low self-esteem.
- I am happy when my dad tells me that I'm fat and look horrible.
- I have felt so much better since I developed asthma, sleep apnea, and joint pain at the age of 32.

I want to stay fat because...

I like the roll of fat that hangs over the top of my jeans

Its awesome to be 10 lbs heavier than my husband

I love wearing the same pair of black pants to church every week

I enjoy the pain in my feet when I get out of bed in the morning

I love the very limited ward robe choices I have at my present weight

I want to stay fat because:

1. I will survive in case something goes horribly wrong in our banks/nation/world/economy until the food rationing begins.

2. I can walk in peace in the city and foreign countries. "Fat people are hard to kidnap."

3. I've escaped the leering, and have only the men who love me to beat off with a stick.

4. I like surprising people at the gym that I can beat them anyway. (Ta-Da!!)

5. I don't need a sweater.

6. Diseases have to get through more of me until the end game.

7. Despite my fan club (see # 3) DH has a sense of security that I really love him because I'm not a cheating trophy wife like some others we've known.

8. I'm easy to pick out of a crowd at high-end stores, galas and weddings.

9. Some people pay to have a bra size like this.

10. Less $$ spent on clothes/fashion. Oh, look, more $$ for food! Yay!!

I wanna stay fat cause:

I love having to come up with jokes about my weight before others do

I love how my fat rolls slap together when I run. It's my personally cheering section.

I love trying on 50 pairs of jeans and not buying any cause I can't tolerate the look

I love the look I get when I walk into a Buffett

I love the way I wheeze after things like getting out of my truck or changing a lightbulb

I love the guessing game of sitting on a bench with someone wondering if it will wobble,

Good times :)

Ha! I participated in the original version of this thread years ago. It's always refreshing to get 're-invigorated' on how much I love staying fat, or in my case, not losing the last 20-ish pounds.

When I first posted about this topic I had super morbid obesity and a body that made me miserable even as it tried, valiantly, to do the things I required of it in daily life. Now I'm a fairly normal size, can run and jump and play with my kids, look sexy in most clothes that suit my shape, and have pristine health markers like cholesterol ratios, blood pressure, a1c, etc.

It's hard. It's a lifelong habit to work at. It's worth it.

This is a cute idea!!

I want to stay fat because:

As others have said, I love all my fat rolls and the way the flow out from under various clothing like my bra and waist top of my jeans.

I enjoy how much my knees hurt at this weight, which is especially gratifying when I climb the stairs in our house.

I look forward to each time I go into my closet, seeing the wardrobe I have from when I was a size 8, before this pregnancy. Its such a warm fuzzy feeling knowing I have all those clothes, but I ultimately have to wear a pair of mom jeans with a big tshirt because that's all I have in this size!

I particularly enjoy when I go somewhere, scanning the room to see if I'm the biggest person there.

And of course, the satisifaction of realising that I am the biggest person! Score!

Love the sense of humor :)
I only have a little weight to lose, but it's been tough losing it and is enough to make some of my old favorite clothes no longer fit

I love being fat because:
-Keeping my smaller clothing "for when I lose weight" is a great way to clutter my drawers and closet
-It makes me feel so good whenever my friend calls me pudgy/fat
-Smoking + netflix is so much more fulfilling than exercise and hiking
-I love that look people give me when I tell them I'm vegan, destroying their image of the fit or skinny vegan
-Bread and chips are so much more energizing than kale and apples
-Morning workouts are too good of a way to start off the day and give me too much energy
-Yoga gives me a great core workout and feels so good afterwards, but sitting on my bed with my laptop is almost as good despite the way it hurts my eyes, my back, and numbs my brain.
- And nothing is more exciting than sneaking around my housemates, stealing food, and eating it in secret in my room

This is great.

I want to stay fat so I can spend all this winter and next in black pants, black shoes, with a black peacoat on, but wearing a bright fushcia winter hat and scarf because they "draw the eye up."

I want to stay fat because I love going to Disney World and Sea World on our FL vacation, and insisting on only using MY cellphone to take pictures. Because I love not being in most of the pictures and hating how I look in the pictures my family happens to take of me.

I love that "stuffed sausage" feeling when I get in the driver's seat of my van wearing my winter coat and warm layers with my seat belt buckled firmly.

I want to stay fat because I enjoy the walk from one side of the mall to the other to get the only other rack of not-too-ugly plus size clothes.

I want to stay fat because I'll be poor if I can buy all the super cute size 0 to 14 clothing options.

Hee, I like this thread. Did I participate in one before? Who cares!

I want to stay fat because…

- I LOVE the constant knee and hip pain! I’m not even thirty! I EFFIN’ ROCK.

- I LOVE that I can’t keep up with my students and help them do their assignments if they’re doing a floor work.

- I LOVE being depressed by the few clothing choices I have. It’s such a pleasure washing the same pair of pants two or three times a week for work.

- I LOVE not going out on the weekends because I 1) can’t find anything to wear and 2) I’m so uncomfortable in said clothes I don’t want to walk.

- I LOVE not taking pictures of myself. I have friends in other countries that have never seen me before!

I love how my fat rolls slap together when I run. It's my personally cheering section.


01-13-2014, 06:48 PM
I want to stay fat coz
- I like the way guys don't notice me when I am out at parties
- I love the looks I get from my cousins at family functions
- I like how uncomfortable I feel when I am naked
- I like to cry every time I see myself in mirror

01-13-2014, 11:26 PM
I want to stay fat because:

- I'm really lucky to have my own bosom as a personal flotation device. I can physically never drown.

- I like wheezing like a 90 year old every time I climb a few flights of stairs. It makes me thankful to be alive everyday because I know what death feels like.

- I like being sure that none of my female friends ever look at me as any kind of competition for guys' affections

- I'm immediately accepted as 'one of the bros' with my guy friends because there's zero attraction there, so there's no awkwardness ever

- I love hearing about how I have a very pretty face so at least I have that going for me

- I love relatives telling me that 'you know it's not healthy to be so overweight', because wow, I never knew that. God bless them for bringing this earth shattering news to my notice

- I like feeling uncomfortable on every plane and bus ride because my rolls of fat may be seeping under the armrest onto someone else's seat. I'm sure they like the extra cushioning

01-13-2014, 11:54 PM
haha these are great! :lol: I'm pretty close to goal but still....these last lbs are so hard!

I love being the fat ugly sister while both my younger siblings are models!

I love being the slowest hiker in my family and struggling to only remain a mile behind them! I get to enjoy the views better at my slower pace!

I love always having to pose and contour my body into ridiculous angles for photos! It's a great chance to stretch!

I love how I'm a bigger size then all my friends and my sister so I don't ever have to worry about them stealing my clothes!

01-14-2014, 12:45 AM
Funny! :lol:

I want to stay fat because

...men's XL t-shirts and sweatshirts are incredibly sexy on me.
...my kitchen floor is cleaner because crumbs don't make it past my chest.
...I look amazing in pics of only my face, looking up toward the camera.
...I don't have to risk my life with the heart-racing thrill of riding rollercoasters or zip-lining.
...when I cook/order in fattening foods, my hubby gets to share in being fat with me. Such beautiful bonding brings tears to my eyes!

01-14-2014, 06:17 PM
I want to stay fat because.......

1. I love the look of the cashier's face at the grocery store when my entire order is healthy food. Because we all know fat people only buy junk.

2. I enjoy when small children ask me how many babies I have in my tummy. I like to see their face when I tell them 3!

3. I never have to worry about getting motion sickness because fitting in a ride at a amusement park is just NOT happening & if you think I can get in and out of that boat you must be smoking something!

01-14-2014, 10:36 PM
Fun! Wow, I have a lot of these. I never realized being fat was so fabulous!

I like being fat because:

--when I go out with my friend, they need me - I watch the drinks while they dance with guys.

--it takes less time to shop with friends because the places they go don't have my size anyway.

--I wear the same 8 outfits because it's so hard to find things I like, that fit, and are comfy - personal choice is completely overrated.

--it feels good when a guy claps me hard on the back when he walks by and then gently rests his hand on the shoulder of a girl who's 50 lbs lighter than me. Makes me feel like a woman.

--no one will kidnap me - they can't swing me over their shoulder with ease! (especially at my high weight!)

--I adore being the fattest girl I know by at least 40 lbs - and heavier than most of my guy friends, too! I always win on the seesaw. It takes two people to lift me off the ground!

--taking an hour to pick out a casual outfit (because everything looks like crap or doesn't fit anymore) is so fun. If everything fit me and looked nice, what would I do with all my time?

--knowing that thin women get paid more and are fired less regardless of competency is motivating; I need to be three times as good as them just to have a chance.

--not being able to borrow clothes from anyone is a treat. I get to hone my acting skills when I insist I am fine with my stained shirt and don't need to borrow their size 2 sweater that'll fit my thigh.

--it's awesome only being able to canoe and jet ski alone because anyone else on the thing with me will make it capsize, while three of my small friends can do it with zero problems. But what fun is a boat ride if you don't capsize? Haven't you ever seen Cast Away? Swiss Family Robinson? Titanic? People LOVE those!

01-15-2014, 09:37 AM
These make me both LOL and want to cry a little!

I want to stay fatter than I should be because...

I love how it feels to stuff myself into a smaller jean size than forces of nature should endure.

I love how self-conscious I feel next to my co-worker who is so tiny and trim and looks so cute and carefree in her leggings and tops.

I love how I avoid looking at my body, unclothed.

I love how my tummy has developed that lumpy look.

I love the thought of being on my motorcycle in the spring, with my thighs and butt bulging from the top of my chaps.

I love knowing that my employers (husband and wife who don't like overweight people) have probably discussed with each other, "Holly's gained some weight hasn't she!"

I love thinking that I am contributing to my knee pain; that weighing one pound more equals 4 pounds of weight pressure on my knees.

01-16-2014, 11:38 PM
These are awesome!

I love how it feels when my thighs start to hurt from rubbing against each other so much, hmm warm and toasty friction.
I love how it feels when crumbs of my food get stuck in my shirt, yum more for later.
I love how I might be going through the best years of my life, but I won't take any pictures to remember it since I look horrible in pictures.
I love how I can't fit in any of the pretty bras that other girls my age look amazing in.
I love how I have stretch marks that will be on my skin for the rest of my life, its like a free tattoo.

01-18-2014, 07:13 AM
:lol: In a very sad way, this thread has cheered me up tremendously. I love this forum. You guys rock!

Okay, I'll probably repeat a lot of what was said, so apologizes in advance for redundancy....

I want to stay fat because....

- I just love being the object if aggression of other women who hate themselves and want to boost their confidence by putting me down in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.

- I love telling people I'm veg*n but have to immediately add "and probably the world's fattest veg*n" as to relieve them of any pressure of muffling their laughter.

- wearing black sweats 24/7 never gets old or pathetic.

- staying at a normal weight is boring and I'd much rather gain and lose weight constantly so my boobs reach my ankles before I hit 40.

- I would miss the masochistic feel of girdles and Spanx.

- it's so much more fun when people call you "ma'am" but refer to women much older and thinner than you as "miss"

- I never have to worry about men wanting me just for my hot bod

- it's fun avoiding mirrors and cameras like I'm an Amish person

- when I get on at a ladder, amusement park ride, certain exercise equipment, mini trampoline, fragile chair or sexual partner, I love the thrill of seeing whether or not I'll get away with going over the weight limit.

- other people in my life are comfortable with me always being "the fat one" and to get thin and healthy would totally destroy their universe.

- it's so much more exciting being in your 20's/30's and hunting for work/dress clothes for hours on end. And when you finally do miraculously discover something that fits, it is actually an outfit meant for a 55 year old woman who has a pension for leopard print.

- going to the pool/beach is so much fun when everyone else is wearing a swimsuit and you're there smoldering in an oversized T-shirt and jeans.

- all pants give me a muffin top.

- it's much more fun to have cartoony avatars on social media than your real picture.

- every year that passes I love looking back and going, "I'm so glad I didn't start that diet and exercise program, otherwise I might actually have lost some weight by now!"

- the physical and mental health issues associated with being overweight/obese are so en vogue right now.

- every pair of underwear you own eventually ends up becoming a thong.

- my OCD would miss having to pull down my shirt and pull up my pants every 10 minutes!

- I'd rather spend money to get a pedicure done than go through the tremendous struggle of bending over and doing it myself.

- dancing in public is never an option.

- being "mysterious" and mostly clothed during sex is not stressful or difficult to pull off in the least.

- you get to become a star on the TV show CATFISH since you never show anyone online what you really look like.

I like being fat because...

I love how easy it is to choose a work outfit in the morning now that my options are limited to the handful of black slacks that I've bought since regaining weight.

01-18-2014, 02:07 PM
I want to stay fat because:

I enjoy not being able to bend and pick anything on the floor or buckle up my own shoes, even when I'm seated.
I enjoy sleepless nights
It's such a nice feeling when, getting out out a car, I make the same sounds and gimmicks as my 90 year old grandma.
The sores on my inner thighs when after a walk are such a pleasure.
I love when my clothes get torn in public because of my weight.

I love that my stomach is as big as my boobs.

I love that I can't go down a size in pants yet because my stomach likes how big it is.

I love that no matter how I try, I always look like I'm wearing mom jeans.

I love looking completely different in pictures than I do in the mirror.

I love that I spent most of my marriage overweight.

01-22-2014, 12:02 AM
I love having to wear something cover my arms even in this arizona summer because my arms look so gorgeous bare.

I love being invisible to men, it was akward when I used to get hit on ALL THE TIME.

Its great being lonely and friendless cause im too afraid to see my old friends from highschool.

I so enjoy having to avoid mirrors and being in a super depressed foul mood even after my mom spends a bunch money for clothes at torrid

01-23-2014, 04:16 PM
I like to stay fat because:

1-The pain in my knees and my low back remind me I'm alive.
2- I can carry all of my week's groceries in the cups of my bras.
3- I can look at old pictures and reminisce my golden days.
4- When I wear out my jeans' thighs my crotch feels refreshed. LOL
5- I love wearing my husband's old sweatpants and t-shirts!

I'd love to stay fat because:

-Having to lift my stomach to wash underneath it in the shower is a good workout

-I love being invisible to the opposite sex so I can have lots of time to myself

-I enjoy everyone having an opinion on my size and discussing it with me, makes me feel so popular!

-Thong underwear is a suffering I know nothing about

-I provide a bag valuable bag carrying service to friends at mainstream clothes stores

-Being a pseudo catfish with no pictures on my facebook/dating sites and conveniently no webcam is much safer in this internet crazed world :)
