Ladies I found the funniest thread over at the Atkins forum. Instead of listing all the reasons why we want to lose weight it lists the reasons why you want to stay fat. In a sarcastic kind of a funny way. I thought we could use a little humor in our daily struggles, I hope you'll join me. We can keep adding to it when something pops in our heads. So I'll get it started.

I wanna stay fat because I love being terrified that I will break somebody's outdoor furniture.

I wanna stay fat because I love having only 3 stores to shop from and then greatly overpaying for my purchases.

I wanna stay fat because I love weighing more then my husband.

I wanna stay fat because I love going to the movies and having to get an end seat so that I have as much room as possible.

I wanna stay fat because it's so much fun not being able to climb a flight of stairs without fear of passing out.

I wanna stay fat because I'm thrilled that my underwear is jumbo sized, I mean who wants to wear itty, bitty underwear anyway? Certainly not Britney Spears.

That's it for now. But I'll be back.

Oh what fun......

I want to stay because I love getting on the plan and asking for the seatbelt extender.
I want to stay fat so I don't have to push the recliner back it will just fall like that do to my weight.
I want to stay fat so I don't have to worry about fashion and just pick what fits.

I wanna stay fat cause I don't really need to be comfortable when I tie my shoelaces.

Love this!

Here goes:

I wanna stay fat because:

1) I LOVE the sound of the toilet seat C-R-A-C-K-I-N-G!!!

2) I can take up more space on this planet!

3) Rolls of fat are INTERESTING and CREATIVE!

4) I can make a bigger splash into the pool than the skinny people can!

5) I don't have to worry about having so many clothing choices, so I can actually SAVE money!

6) Slim ankles are overrated!

7) Who wants to be able to wear a watch anyway?

8) If there is another Ice Age I will survive REALLY WELL!

9) I enjoy being ignored!

10) I like it when people say, "You have SUCH a pretty face!"

This thread really made me laugh. Great idea Robin.

I want to stay fat becuase:

*I don't like wearing seatbelts on airplans (and am too embarassed to ask for the extender).
*I like having to have the arm up between seats on a plan so that I can fit.
*I like people saying I have a great personality.
*I like people telling me that I'm really smart.
*Stairs are very overrated.
*I can buy a thinner winter coat becuase I have more insulation.
*I can keep the heat lower in my apartment because I have more insulation.
*If I fall it hurts less because I have more padding.

(And on a side not I am really excited to fly in 3 weeks becuase I think the seatbelt will fit and I wont have to have the arm up between me and my sis. I think she will be very suprised!)

This is a good one - good idea starting one over here.

- I want to be fat because I love taking a chance of injury every time I sit in a lawn chair.

- I want to be fat because I love the feeling of being shoehorned into a seat at Senator's games.

- I want to be fat because I like sweating profusely at the hint of exertion.

I want to stay fat because I love panting while shaving my legs.
I want to stay fat because I love having a wider waist than my six foot tall father.

Oh my gosh these are sooo funny. And yet oh so motivating. Keep em coming, keep em coming.

I wanna stay fat just in case the mall calls me that they need someone to replace their Santa Claus.

I wanna stay fat because I love taking up a seat and a half on public transportation and that oh so wonderful sense of humiliation that comes along with it.

I wanna stay fat so that when George Clooney comes knocking at my door he won't be tempted to seduce me, therefore saving me from an adulturous affair and wrecking my 21 year marriage.

I wanna stay fat so that people can describe me easily - using words like "heavy-set," "chubby," "chunky" and "plump" as the FIRST word to describe me.

I wanna stay fat because I love when people underestimate me! Of course I can't dance, swim, or bike - I'm fat!

I want to stay fat because it's so much fun looking for the biggest size on the rack, and still wondering if it's going to fit.

I love asking the flight attendant for an extender. It's really fun when she comes swinging it down the row and whirls it out for the world to see.

I want to stay fat because I love living dangerously by not wearing a seat belt that won't fit.

I want to stay fat because I can almost take flight if I flap my arms fast enough.

I want to stay fat because I'm the one that boosts all my skinny friends' egos.

and last but not least..... I want to stay fat because I don't have dimples on my face, so I figure I might as well have them on my butt!!

I want to stay fat because I love squeezing myself into "shaping" undergarments to try to look normal.

I want to stay fat because I love not being able to find pants that fit.

I want to stay fat because I love the pain in my knees. It reminds me I'm alive!

I want to stay fat because I love worrying if I'm disturbing my downstairs neighbors when I walk in my apartment.

I love the comments about the cords. I was telling a girl at work that I don't wear cords because I don't want to start a fire.

I want to stay fat because I like not knowing if I have a belly button or not.

I want to stay fat because I like having to grab onto the furniture so that I can get up from the floor if I sit there too long.

That is a great one!! Skinny people worry about what their husbands will think of them without makeup on..... fat people think about what their husbands will think of them without their body shapers on!!

What motivation!

I though of some more. Also I NEVER realized how many other people had the same problems with flying and seatbelts as I do. Wow. I’m actually excited to see the shocked look on my sisters face when we fly this winter and I don’t have to put the arm rest between us up because I can fit into the seat and that I can comfortable put my own seatbelt on without an extender! (Or at least that is what I am hoping for)

* I like being fat because then people don’t ask me or assume I had weightloss surgery. (Not that I’m apposed to other people getting the surgery but it bothers me that people only assume I can loose weight though surgery.)
* I wanna stay fat because I like the looks I get from waiters/waitress. If I order a burger and fries then the that’s why you’re fat look and if I order a salad with fat free dressing the who are you trying to fool look.
* I wanna stay fat because I like struggling to put seatbelts on in the car.
* I wanna stay fat because I like everyone assuming any health problems I have are a direct result of my obesity.
* I wanna stay fat because I enjoy going to three stores to try and find a winter coat and then just settling on whatever fits.
* I wanna stay fat because I enjoy paying extra money for clothing.

I feel that too. I wonder how much is my own embarrassment of ordering healthy foods at my size, rather than them giving me a look ("projecting" in psycho-speak). I think I don't want people to know I'm trying. Yet again. I get the same urge to hide when I'm buying a load of healthy stuff at the market or excercising in public. I imagine they're thinking, "Honey, whatever you're doing, it ain't working." I SOOO need to stop worrying about what other people think. It's dumb and the rational side of me says that they don't care!

I wanna stay fat because if I get caught in a blizzard, I'll need the fuel to keep my alive.

I loved being fat because my 47 inch waist was so sexy.
I loved to hear the sexy grunt when I would sit on my husbands lap.
I loved that getting into a pair of jeans was exercise in itself.
I loved wearing granny panties and long flannel gowns.
I loved that my wardrobe had so few of clothes to choose from.
I especially loved to run into my DH's ex-wife when she had lost 100 lbs. and I was almost 100 lbs. overweight.
I loved going to my son's high school football games and me beiing sweating worse than the players.
I loved having other people stare at my plate when we went out to eat.

I love being fat because it's fun to guess at where my 'bikini line' is when shaving due to the fact that I haven't seen it in 8 years.

I love being fat because having shorts that ride up in public is super sexy!

I love being fat because it's great to hear the GYN say "You really should lose weight." while in the middle of the dreaded exam. :o

Never mind why I love being fat, I LOVE all of you. It is amazing that I can relate to EVERY SINGLE THING THAT WAS WRITTEN HERE, EVERY SINGLE THING. And I had totally given up on flying that's how petrified I was of the dreaded seat belt extender and not fitting into that teeny tiny seat. It's been about 12 or 13 years since I've flown. But maybe, just maybe one day soon.........

I love being fat cause hey what gal wouldn't love being the same weight as professional athletes, think NFL linebackers, NBA centers.

I love being fat so that my husband can sleep at night knowing that his wife will always be faithful.

I love being fat so that when a wedding invitation comes I don't need to worry about buying something new and spending a lot of money.

I love being fat for that oh so special look I get when I go to get my haircut and the girl wonders how she's gonna hoist me up in the chair.

I love being fat cause hey who needs a pair of sexy knee-high boots anyway.

I wanna stay fat because when all my friends are talking about going clothes shopping I actually like feeling like I wanna curl up and die.

I wanna stay fat because I love hearing, "but you don't seem to eat that much"

I wanna stay fat because when the streets are icy I love being terrified that I will slip and fall and G-d forbid break something, that 6 men will have to lift me up. 6 professional athletes that is (see above, you know the NFL linemen and the NBA centers).

That's actually a really good point...as I've thought about it I've realized that while I miss out on alot being fat there are actually a few things that have been if not positive then not totally negative about it....Like all of You!

of course as long as I have you all already...Id like to someday see my bikini line...maybe have someone else see it too.

OK these are fantastic!!!

I have been seriously disturbing my dog's sleep while I keep bursting out in laughter!!!!

-I like being fat because my belly takes away from the enormity of my bustline.

-I wanna stay fat because I love sitting naked in a changeroom crying.

-I like being fat because I love the looks of fear from the salesgirls when I go into regular sized clothing stores. Or better yet when they pretend like they don't see you squeezing between the racks. (I sometimes walk through stores as motivation)

:D I used to tell DH when we went hiking that if I fell and broke an ankle he'd have to leave me behind to die because there was NO WAY he was getting me out of there!!

I wanna stay fat because I love having little kids tell me I'm really huge!

I wanna stay fat because I love not being able to sit on the floor for more than five minutes to play with my nieces and my friend's DD's and DS's.

I wanna stay fat because I love picking out clothes with an "X" after the size number.

I wanna stay fat because I love not fitting comfortably in the passenger seat of my DH's car.

I wanna stay fat because I love having my fat overlap on other people on airplanes.

I love being fat, because chub-rub is my favorite feeling.

I love being fat, because being single is AWESOME. Ditto to having 0 confidence to flirt with men. Ditto always being the third wheel. Ditto being told you should lower your standards.

I wanna stay fat because stretch marks are HOT. Seriously, they're the new body art.

I want to stay fat because I like a little mystery in my day (Will I be able to get off that extra low couch? Will I fit through that turnstile? What piece of my wardrobe will be joining most of my clothes in the "will fit again someday" section of the closet?)

I love being fat so that the only shoes I buy are slip on shoes so I won't have to try and move my belly out of the way to put on shoes.

I love being fat when I go to a play/movies because I LOVE the feeling of my hip/thighs rubbing up against a stranger when we are sitting in the seats :o

I love being fat so I can make up new words like "bomach" to describe the solo mound of fat that make up my boobs and stomach.

I love being fat b/c that automatically makes me the "jolly one".

I love being fat so that my skinny friends look even better and do not feel threatened by me at all.

I love being fat so that when guys approach me, they look me in the eyes to avoid looking at my body.

I wanna stay fat so I don't have to go snow skiing and have some teeny instructor try to pick me up from off the ground when I fall.

I wanna stay fat so no one bothers me when I'm looking for a certain item in a store and can't find it anywhere.

I just wanted to say this thread has made me realize that my insecurities are not just my own, that many other people share them, they are not unfounded, they are not unreasonable, they are life.

Here is a couple more that I just thought of.

* I wanna stay fat because I like not being able to take baths in normal size tubs. (Who doesn’t want a whirlpool bathtub).
* I like being fat because the relationships I build are more meaningful. It is just an assumption, but, I believe the people who I become friends with or enter into relationships with are doing so not because of how I look but instead who I am.
* I like being fat because I’ve learned to have more self-confidence then a thin person and not let my appearance stop me.
* I like being fat because I take greater pride in the accomplishments I make. (It’s a lot more remarkable when a 270 pound person hikes a mountain 20k rather then a 125 pound person)
* I like being fat because I now know more about nutrition then any of my thin friends.

~I wanna stay fat because I love it when a guy wants to go out with me because my most interesting feature is my toes! Isn't he just SO special?
~I wanna stay fat, because I don't have the money to buy a new car any way, let alone have to see if I can fit behind the wheel!

Well I see that some of us here can relate to the safety issue. I'm always worried that G-d forbid in an emergency, they'll leave the fat girl behind. But here's a true story that happened to me and is actually not so humorous, and it was one of the things that propelled me to start thinking about seriously losing this tonnage of mine.

I wanna stay fat because I love the memory of the day AFTER that horrible, horrible day 9/11/01 and I was shopping in a mall with my 3 daughters, who were given the day off for some reason. There was a bomb scare announced over the loud speaker and we were told to get out. I just loved it when I was practically trampled to death because I moved so slowly going down the stairs. People were not kind and helpful, they were scared, inpatient and mean. And I'm not sure if I even blame them. And I loved seeing my kids terrified that their mom was practically helpless to do anything about it and that never mind the bomb , these people were going to kill me. Moving right along...

I wanna stay fat because when I go to a comedy club I love, love, love being terrified that I will be the comic's target. Just as bad as when he starts picking on some other fat chick. (This is appropos cause this Saturday night I will be going to a comedy club)

I wanna stay fat because this way my kids will always have something comfy to rest their heads on.

I wanna stay fat because I wanna show people that black clothing really can be worn in the summertime, day after day, after day.

I wanna stay fat because then I can keep up my streak of having all but a handful of pictures of me over the last decade.

I wanna stay fat because I love supporting the elastic industry.

I wanna stay fat because I love having calves bigger then most people thighs.

I wanna stay fat because I love having calves bigger then most people thighs.And here I thought I was the only one who wanted to stay fat for this reason.Cute knee high boots....neh,not for me :p

Wow Robin how scary! The safety issues are very real, I think. My DH would always says he would get me out of a potentially dangerous situation, somehow, but practically speaking, moving a 280 lb person (my highest) just ain't gonna happen without a lot of help! I mean, he's a strong guy, but come on! I think about the poor firemen too if I ever had to be saved...hmmm...maybe this is why I wanted a bungalow, subconsciously I wanted to be able to climb out a window if I had to!

Lifeguard - When I go camping I too am VERY careful I don't get hurt! So much so I go even slower on hikes that I need to....driving everyone crazy but they aren't thinking about the consequences if Liz twists an ankle!

I thought of a few more...

I wanna stay fat because I love shopping with my 130 lb sisters and watch them try on size 6's and 8's while I try to look interested at looking at clothes that wouldn't even fit one of my legs.

I wanna stay fat because I love getting winded walking with my boss to an off-site meeting we have and trying to pretend I'm JUST fine!

I wanna stay fat because I love having to come up with excuses not to go into the hot tub at our company Christmas party.

12-07-2006, 11:10 AM
You guys are amazing! *giggles* I have to add some of my own...

I love being fat, because:
- it's great to feel intimidated by thin people.
- I like the feeling of not being able to breathe while I eat
- When my boyfriend talks about how fast he can run, or how many pushups/situps he can do, it helps his ego to say "Well I can do maybe two..."
- Bah at health risks! Both my parents, my sister, my grandfather, my uncle... all are diabetics. I don't want to be left out!
- When people tick me off, I can attempt to squish them... and no one can blame me for it, because I take up a lot of room! It was an accident, I swear!
- And my personal favorite.. I love doing musical community theater, and it's a wonderful feeling that people less talented than I am will get lead roles, while I get to sing in the chorus, because their small hips make them look the part. Who needs to challenge themselves? (And on the same lines, it's wonderful to not be sure if the directors who have cast me did it because I really was good, or because they were all friends with my father, who's done theater for most of my life)

I want to stay fat because I do medieval costuming, and I don't need a bum-roll and hoop skirt to make my Elizabethan gowns have big, full skirts!

I want to stay fat because I'm greedy and I don't want to have to share that two-person jacuzzi tub with my husband when we go on a romantic vacation.

I want to stay fat because I NEVER want to be swept off my feet and carried off like Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind - unless it's Superman doing the lifting.

Oh! And I want to stay fat because trucker tan is SO sexy. Of course, no one but me will ever know that, since every shirt I own has sleeves to at least the elbow.

Hey Ladies,
I've been catching up reading all of these...OMG! I can't take it...this is so funny. I just have to add some....

OK so here goes...

I want to stay fat because I love only going to the beach at night when the only skin i need to show is my hands & feet.

I want to stay fat because of my favorite (made up) body part...the thutt....otherwise known as the area where thigh meets butt that is rediculously difficult to tone!

I want to stay fat because I love not having anyone....especially attractive men...bother me all night and I love that they constantly hit on my thin friends.

I want to stay fat because I love to be told what I pretty face, nice hair, nice eyes I have.... I mean who really wants to be the girl with the nice stems!

I want to stay fat because I love living in fear of the train during rush hour. Those of you who have been to Boston and have been on the green line train will know that it is more like a trolley than a subway and it takes really hard turns. I love being the fat girl in heels who takes a digger into the crowd on one of those sharp turns!

I want to stay fat because I really love to wear long pants all summer long and never own a pair of shorts....except for the ones that get worn under any and all dresses and skirts I own to suck it in, smooth it out and avoid any chub rub at all costs!

Well thats it for now but I'm sure I'll be back with more!

Cheers

Don't you just love being asked if your thin friends are single? Or being constantly suspicious that a guy is being nice to you so get closer to one of your friends?

I want to stay fat because I NEVER want to be swept off my feet and carried off like Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind - unless it's Superman doing the lifting.
Who would?! Really, I don't know a single female out there who wants to be swept up. We're very unromantic creatures, you know.

oh...my *wipes tears* I haven't laughed like that in... I don't even know how long :cp: :rofl: Had to leave mid thread, but hubby had to drag me away kicking and screaming... ok... mine...


I want to stay fat because of the adorable way my youngest tries to lie to me: "No mommy, you're not F-A-T at all... I promise!" Or my Hubby: "What fat rolls, I don't see no stinkin' rolls... just supermodel!" Gimmie a break :blah:

I want to stay fat because I LOVE the moments I share in stores with skinny teeny boppers who look at me in horror, thinking it could never be them...

I REALLY want to stay fat so I can look more ridiculous than the average parent at PTC when I sit in the tiny first grader chair to talk to the teacher.

I want to stay fat because I LOVELOVELOVE the little desk chair arm shaped ridges in my thighs... some people get pierced, I'm forcing my fat into new and interesting shapes.

Oh man, I had more before I got dragged off to the store... now I've lost them *pout*

I have to say that I like the one about staying fat so that if you order a burger and fries they look at you like, "Duh, this is why you're fat lady" and if you order a salad you get the "Who do you think you're fooling?" look

Here are a couple of mine:

I want to stay fat because I love the feeling of wondering if every guy that hits on me is just doing so because he assumes the fat chick is easy (and even more - - the look I get when I have the AUDACITY to turn them down flat).

I want to stay fat because I love eating in the car and avoiding pulling up to where the car next to me can see that I am eating.

I hate roller coasters. I mean, I TRUELY HATE roller coasters.

But when I went to Six Flags this fall with my DH and DS and DS talked me onto the Screaming Eagle, I was SO PROUD that I fit into that seat - at least until I began to fear for my life! (And let me tell you, 20 lbs ago, I wouldn't have! And I would have cried too. It was TIGHT!)

I like being fat because the lower belly roll provides a practical, yet unsightly awning for my "special place"

I like being fat for the sense of adventure that shaving my legs has given me... almost like a puzzle. "Did I move the fat out of the way well enough, did I get every spot?"

I like being fat for fluttering in my chest from doing such strenuous activities, such as getting out of my chair, or simply sitting there.

I like being fat because it is an important benchmark on my journey as a budding shut-in.

When my daughter was younger, she showered with me and always had a "nice" comment to make about my body. My favorite was when she told me my tummy was "moooshy" and my butt was "bumpy." When a little one tells you these things, you know they're true. No such thing as tact in their little minds.

I wanna stay fat because I like it when people are surprised that I'm smart and eloquent. Being judged keeps me humble.

I absolutely love the cute little work out outfits thin woman wear -- I wonder if they would trade theirs for my oversized t-shirt and ugly men's sweats I have to wear?

"I want to stay fat because I love eating in the car and avoiding pulling up to where the car next to me can see that I am eating."

I want to be fat because then really thin women can say to me, "I'm so fat. I really need to lose a few pounds." These are the same genuine women who say to me, "Oh, stop saying that--you're not fat!" :sumo:

I want to be fat because I have two shelves that food falls on when I eat -- if one doesn't work, the other kicks in! I don't miss a crumb! :yes:

I want to be fat because men quickly avert their eyes if they see me notice they looked my way. God forbid I should ever think they might be attracted to someone like me. ;)

I want to be fat because I like feeling adrogynous. I'm some kind of a hybrid human being -- you can't tell what I am by my shape. :p

I want to be fat because when my co-workers decided on go-carting for our department outing, I said I didn't care for the sport, and I looked dignified, and no one suspected that I couldn't cram myself into one of those little vehicles. :cool:

I want to be fat because normal sized women look really tiny to me -- impossibly tiny. :?:

I want to be fat because being single is my goal in life. Relationships are overrated. :dizzy:

I want to be fat so that dumb, pimply guys at the grocery store bakery can say to me, "What can I get you, 5 lbs of brownies?" :mad:

Ooooh, these are funny!!!! LOL!!

Here are a few that crossed my mind:

I want to stay fat because I have to literally stuff myself into booths at restaurants.

I want to stay fat because I don't have to fret about what to wear...I only have 2 choices in my closet (everything else is those "some day" outfits).

I want to stay fat because I am blessed with more than one chin.

I want to stay fat because I just love turning down my hubby when he begs for me to wear a nighty (which I refuse to do at my size!).

I want to stay fat because I just love the humiliation of people at buffets silently making a comparison between how high my plate is to my body size.

I will probably think of more...will be back! LOL!! Keep 'em coming! This is definitely a way to keep us thinking about why we are reducing!

I want to stay fat because I love boobs that kiss my belly button when I take off my bra. :rofl: I can totally relate!

Holy cow this whole thread is awesome!!!

I want to stay fat because I LOVED having the men at the horse ranch search for (and annouce that they were having to search for) a horse with extra wide shoulders so it could "support this girls weight" (in front of the entire youth group I was with)... I totally felt like a princess!

I want to stay fat because I like not having to worry about men staring at my "girls" when I'm at the pool with a t-shirt and shorts over my swimsuit

I want to stay fat because being the fattest grandchild that my grandparents have makes me unique, right?

I want to stay fat because when sitting in a theater chair, I like to feel held in by the arm rests - it's kinda like getting a big hug from the chair through the entire movie.

I want to stay fat because, even though no one in my family has diabetes, it's fun to play russion roulette with it.

I want to stay fat because it keeps my size 6 body inside from getting scratched.

I want to stay fat because it's cold here and my "fluff" keeps me warm.

1. At times of famine fat people have more chance of surviving, drawing on all those stored reserves.
2. Body fat is a good insulator, so keeps you warm in winter.
3. Body fat is less dense than other tissue and so it helps keep you bouyant in water.

You guys are awesome! These are not only hysterical, but motivating!

I want to stay fat so that when I go to see a play and the occcupant of the seat next to me is also fat, he can say "Oh, this ought to be interesting."

I want to stay fat because thin people are not blessed with that extra piece of furniture fat people have. Ya know, that shelf that sits above your butt and looks so divinely sexy.

I want to stay fat because I find it invigorating to try to find new ways to wipe after doing a #2. (Okay, a little gross, but painfully true!)

I want to stay fat so I never have to take my sons to an amusement park.

I want to stay fat because I hate nice relaxing baths. Who can relax anyway while worrying about you'll be able to hoist yourself out of the tub?

I want to stay fat because when I tripped and fell last year and broke my upper arm, it took more than one cute ambulance dude to pick me up.

I want to stay fat because sofas are so much more comfortable than the floor and easier to get out of.

I love doing musical community theater, and it's a wonderful feeling that people less talented than I am will get lead roles, while I get to sing in the chorus, because their small hips make them look the part.

This one hit home for me too. I once lost a part in "Godspell" because the director didn't think I'd be able to crawl on the floor like a sheep in one scene...never mind that my audition was way better than the girl who got the part!

I love being fat because I can pick up my 180lbs husband and throw him around like a ragdoll.

I love being fat because it's great to dream...and I dream about fitting into my clothes that are still hanging in my closet.

I love being fat because I like to hear people say, "OH you weigh that much? It doesn't look like it".

I love being fat because my 5 year old doesn't want to eat because "I don't want to get fat like you and grandma". This broke my heart.

I love being fat because staying in PJ's all day saves time and money on washing clothes.

I love being fat because people asking me if I'm ok because I've gained so much weight. Keeps the mystery alive.

I love being fat because it keeps my kids from fighting over who is going to sit on mommys lap....there's enough space for all of them.

I love being fat because I can wave at people 10 minutes after my hand stops with my upper arm.

I love being fat because it's great hearing people that are maybe 5lbs overweight say they feel fat and then apologize when they look at you.

I love having a large stomach to catch any food that misses my mouth.

Who needs to shop in Victoria's Secret anyhow?

Oh boy, I love being fat because I get to be imaginative when explaining the chaff marks from my bra that is obviously too tight.

I want to stay fat because I'll have to find another addictive substance to deal with my emotions. (I like to eat when I'm happy or bored. So from the looks of me, I am one very happy and bored person!)

I want to stay fat because everyone knows I can't pick up whatever just fell down on the floor so people always assume they have to do it for me.

I want to stay fat because who needs to feel attractive?!

I want to stay fat because I love not fitting in at a beauty salon. I like being the fattest person in the room with the fattest, swollen feet!

I want to stay fat because no one can throw me into a pool. They could try but would lose their balance or bounce off and fall in themselves...

I want to stay fat because I don't love my family enough to want to be around a long time and assure they don't fall into my same habits... :(

I love being fat because was fun to be the ONLY date-less girl at the prom.

I love being fat because when my skinny friends want to go swimsuit shopping I panick.

I love being fat so I can walk down the street with my skinny friends and have people wonder what they are hanging out with me for.

- several people get lots of exercise getting us all back on our feet, and I'm sure I've inspired a number of them to renew their gym memberships!
- total strangers start talking to each other, so several can give up their seats at the same time to make room for me, so that I don't cause another avalanche!

I wanna stay fat because I like the fact that no one can tell I have high cheekbones, until I smile.

I wanna stay fat because when I workout I like it that my thighs clap when I do side steps. They make that clapping sound AND sometimes on beat!!

I wanna stay fat because chocolate IS better than sex.

I wanna stay fat because men think I can lift as much weight as them. They don't lift heavy things for me ( or do other manly things) like they do my skinny counterparts.

I wanna stay fat because bones aren't meant to be seen anyway. I KNOW I have a jawline, collar bone, cheek bone and rib; I don't HAVE to see them!

I wanna stay fat because I like watching reruns on Friday nights and spending time with my Grandma on Saturday night!

I wanna stay fat because people don't beleive me when I say I eat healthy and exercise. They don't think I have much to contribute to a conversation about health.

I wanna stay fat because I am not THAT fat. Friends point to fatter people and tell me I am not THAT fat. Using that same disgusting tone as not being THAT ugly or THAT dumb!

I love being fat because it makes me more of an enigma: do I REALLY have a belly button? Maybe somewhere...

I love being fat because I'm a comedian, and my self-depreciating fat jokes never fail to leave the audience in an uproar of laughter.

I love being fat because, again, I LOVE making other people laugh... especially without saying a single word. I am THAT good!

I love being fat because MOOOO is the new HISSSSSS.

I love being fat because I'm a rebel: rebelling against gender stereotypes and buying men's clothing (...because it fits better...) will get me street cred in the feminist community.

I love being fat because it makes me the most faithful girlfriend.

I love being fat because it causes me to posess the holy and dying trait of humility.

I love being fat because I'm secretly hoping that one day, my thighs will rub together and start a campfire so I can roast my own marshmallows at home.

I love being fat because I'm providing job security for the pedicurist, since I can't even approach my own feet.
I love having men see my caller ID and let my calls go to the message center, so they can make sure I have a non-social reason for my call before they commit to speaking to me.
I love knowing that if a man flirts with me on the telephone, it's only because he's never seen me.
I love being fat because it's titillatiing when my pantyhose wasteband suddenly rolls down until it hits my saddlebags, where it stops briefly on its way to my knees.
I love being fat because it reiforces good hygiene: if I fail to shower every day, the split and bleeding skin in between my buttocks will remind me.
I love being fat because I can wear a tank top in hot weather and use my arms as yh-u-g-e heat exchangers. Questiion of the day: bare the lumpy, wobbly, misshapen, hang-over-at-elbows-and-wrists arms, or force them into sleeves like overstretched sausages, risking dramatic and sudden fabric blowout?

I love being fat because...

I like a good scare, and living as a fat person is better than a horror movie, any day. Example: When my 100 lb. Mother In Law decided to "help" with the laundry and I later discovered a basket containing my clean, neatly folded size 12 "Just My Size" white cotton granny panties.

I get to teach my children anatomy lessons when they ask me to define the blob that hangs over my bra strap in back. I get to practice restraint when I'm tempted to tell them I have an extra breast on each side.

I love it when I fly standby and am the last person heading to a middle seat on a full airplane. The looks I get are priceless, especially when my hips brush against everyone shoulders as I make my way down the aisle. It's really fun when I'm seated on the exit row and then asked to move when I ask for a seatbelt extender. Because people who need seatbelt extenders are not allowed to sit on the roomier exit aisle.

Oh, and it's such fun when flying cross-country and there are two inflight beverage services. This gives me two opportunities to show the people around me that my belly is too big to lower the tray. And then the joy of balancing a dixie cup of diet coke and a bag of pretzels while trying not to elbow the person next to me. Good times, that.

I love it when I go to a new doctor about something not weight-related and he spends thirty minutes lecturing me about obesity. When he tells me that the reason for this is so that "When I see you in heaven someday, I don't want you to ask me why I didn't tell you about the dangers of being morbidly obese", well...at that point, I know that he truly cares about me...and thinks I'm so smart!

I love it when I hang out with my obese friends and people automatically assume we're sisters.

I think it's fun to keep the antifungal ointment and powder industry in business. I mean, who knew a woman could get jock itch under her breasts?

I feel like a winner when my thin sister marvels over the fact that I can still paint my own toenails. It means a lot when she asks me to demonstrate exactly how I manage to do that.

When the steering wheel rubs against my lower belly, it makes me feel like I'm bonding with my car.

These are all just hillarious!

I want to stay fat

- because having a huge body makes your head look nice and small
- because horses are such an expensive hobby anyway
- because not having a wardrobe and being the size of a baby elephant is such a good excuse to not go find that nice job you want
- because I love doubting my boyfriends sanity when he says I'm sexy
- because everyone knows its the height of style to wear anything as long as it isn't threadbare between your thighs
- because its so much fun to see how people go out of their way to avoid the "f" word when you are around
- because its a good exercise in planning to always have to think ahead: will I fit, will I get too hot and sweaty, how can I get out of that one!
- because I love wearing jeans and big t-shirts in the hottest summer days. Only sluts wear light clothes!
- because sumo was such an affectionate pet name to have growing up
- because shopping is so much easier when you only have to worry about clothes actually fitting, not looking cute
- because my boyfriend gets a nice work out whenever he picks me up (and believe me I resist that one!)
- because I love being treated as if I have no IQ and am not worthy of respect
- because its sexy when your low slung jeans (where are the normal pants?) make you look like a builder when tyeing your shoes
- because the fear of being pregnant without noticing puts some excitement in my life

I love being fat because it's such a kick to look sleek like a marine mammal instead of a jungle cat.

I just read six pages of back posts on this thread and everyone in the office is looking at me like I've lost my mind! HOW FUNNY! I had to stop before they called the men in white coats.

I love being fat because I never have to pick a pair of jeans - I just buy whatever I can get into and breathe in.

I love being fat because I'm easy to spot in any picture.

I love being fat because eating a whole package of oreos makes no visible difference to my body.

I just read this entire thread and found myself nearly choking on my diet coke!! (I know most of this thread is pretty old but it is a damn good thread!)

I wanna stay fat because-
-I love being known as "the pretty one" not the "hot one"

-I enjoy it when guys approach me to ask about my skinnier friends

-I just love bursting into tears when I see photos of myself

-I like binge-eating and feeling like a total failure afterwards

-I love being fat-who would want to be slim anyways?!!

-I don't mind that my risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer is higher than most people because a lot of relatives have them

-I like the fact my self-confidence is non-existent

I want to stay fat, because I like when everyone has to give up the front seat for me, otherwise 5 of us (or more) won't fit into the car. And yes I like sitting up front (it is true w/o any sarcasm)
I love being fat, because I know if I go to a blind date, or meet a new guy, he will not be asking me to bed, and I will not have to experience the humiliation of a one night stand.
I love being fat, because I can carry a guy in my arms and not the other way around. More specifically when one offers jokenly, I can stump him by just offering to carry him. Usually that puzzles them and they go away. Seriously who would want that kind of attention, even when you have bad blisters from walking and they are bleeding.
I love being fat, because if I drink I can stay sober longer and at times see how others make fools of themselves. By the way because I am sober longer, I get to also remember everything which went on and later tell funny stories.
I like being fat, because why would anyone want to get up during 12 hour international flight, you can die of wanting to pee, but why get up, you can experience the thrill of holding on, because anyway you are stuck in that seat. Besides, eating is fun too, because the table barely fits.

I want to stay fat because tennis shoes in the winter look so much better than boots that will not fit around your calfs.
I want to stay fat because the wings hanging from my upper arms make a great shield when it rains.
I want to stay fat because I get prime seating at restaurants the hostess asks seat near the buffet right?
I want to stay fat because when elevator doors swish open folks are scared to get on because they think we might be over the weight limit.
I want to stay fat becasue when I ride the bump cars at the fair the impact of getting hit is greatly reduced because my weight can sustain any hit.

I enjoy being fat because I mostly have guy friends, and usually very cool and looking ones, they consider me best friend and can always count on to discuss the girls they like.
Seriously, it is a disaster, I think it is written on my forehead that they can discuss anything about the girls, including their boobs, and whether they are good in bed. Nevermind the fact, that sometimes I like the guy and I know he is available but I am not even considered for the role, even though we hang out more, hug, and even jokenly flirt.

This thread is wonderful! I am blown away by how many of these I can identify. It's funny and poignant at the same time.

Here are a few of mine:
1. I want to stay fat because I love having inner thighs that are darker than the rest of me from rubbing together constantly.
2. I want to stay fat because I love being told I have a great figure for someone my size.
3. I want to stay fat because I thrive on the horrified looks I get when I sit next to someone on the bus.
4. I want to stay fat because I like having more chins than most people.
5. I want to stay fat because fat will be in one day and I want to be ready for the trend.

I wanna stay fat because.....

-shopping for clothes at Gap, or Ann Taylor, or Macy's, isn't nearly as fun as shopping at Lane Bryant and Catherine's. Too many choices, priced too low.

-laying on the sofa, shovelling down cookies, candy, ice cream and fast food and washing it down with soda makes me feel fantastic and gives me a healthy glow, while lifting weights, walking and eating healthy makes me feel sluggish and look pudgy and pasty.

-fitting comfortably into theater seats, airplane seatbelts and the backseat of a 2-door car is boring, while being shoved into them gives you that warm, happy, snug feeling.

I see this is an old thread, but thanks for reviving; I have been reading it off and on and it totally made my morning. !!

Why lose weight, right? Sure, my husband told me I was "so f-ing beautiful" and "exquisite" recently, but wasn't it also fun when he told me in much lighter tones that I was a "cutie" and I just felt thankful that I had someone who was so indulgent/kind to me? (And I truly did always appreciate him for it, btw, but it's not the same as spontaneous-sounding things that include "beautiful.")

Why lose weight when it's so fun that people are rude for no apparent reason and you, who never did get used to being fat, can realize that wow, that's just how it is when you gain so much weight! It's apparently a-okay to just be flatly rude to people depending on how they look!

Why lose weight when it's like a game to go visit your parents in the hometown without running into anyone you went to HS with, or any of the many, many co-workers and clients from the glam country club where you used to work!

Why lose weight when it's so embarrassing to smoke in public because well, you're fat AND you smoke? Everyone is thinking it. You only get one, you know. Both means you might as well be Osama Bin Laden.

I want to stay fat because I love the nearly impossible hunt for clothes that not only fit well, but are affordable and at least somewhat flattering. What a great challenge!

I want to stay fat because I love overhearing the snarky comments constantly made behind my back.

I want to stay fat because this constant state of being tired makes for a great excuse to stay away from fun activities, like going to a theme park or convention.

I want to stay fat because I think it looks cool the way my skirts hike up higher in the back then they do in the front.

I want to stay fat because it's a real form of exercise to either jump up and down to get my jeans over my hips, or to lie on the bed and see how hard I can suck in to get them zipped up.

I want to stay fat because it makes me look older, and older means I have more wisdom. Right?

I want to stay fat because I really believe having a muffin top is the sexiest part of a woman.

I want to stay fat because...

I love going to the store and finding out they don’t have all the cute dresses at my size... It’s great because I don’t have to worry about which one to get, since my choices are so limited.

it is great to be the heavier one from a group of friends!!! And when they decide to exchange cloth be the only one who can’t do it and stick with your own old cloth, since it doesn’t fit in anyone either...

because I love when my skinny sister give me her cloth and I can’t fit on them (who wants old nice clothes anyway?)...

or even because she will not even waste her time handing it to me assuming it wont fit anyway.

because I loved to hear from my aunt that I am prettier than my sister when it comes to face. Loved it!!!

These are so funny - but so true! Here are a couple from me, not sure if they've already been given:


I want to stay fat because I love the unpredictability of not knowing if I'm going to fit in a booth or chair. It makes going out to dinner such an adventure.

I want to stay fat because I love carrying around tissues to dab my sweat in the summer. So ladylike!

I want to stay fat because the aches in my knees help keep me up at night. Sleep is highly overrated.

I wanna stay fat because...

...I love the red, raw, burning feeling under my boobs no matter how much Gold Bond powder I use

...I love how my Bible slips off my lap during church due to my stomach overhang

...jeans are much cooler in the summer when the inner thighs are rubbed thin

...my wedding rings look nicer in my jewelry box than on my hand

...I love wearing my coat open and flapping in the middle of a New England winter

...I love how my boobs enter a room five minutes before I do

...I don't ever want to be able to play and keep up with my grandchildren, and it's great knowing that they've never seen a healthy grandmother :(

And my most favorite reason of all:

...because it's so exciting to wake up suddenly in the middle of the night choking on acid reflux

I want to stay fat cause it would be a shame if I could do the dishes in the sink and not end up with a giant wet round spot on my stomach! Its my badge of a duty well done!

I want to stay fat cause losing weight would mess up my BoobyDoo (my stomach sticks out further than my boobies do)!

I want to stay fat cause it isn't at all humiliating to try and figure out how to gracefully move my cart around me to the bagger after unloading it at the very narrow check out stand!

I want to stay fat because the bruises left on my a$$, hips and stomach from having to S-Q-U-E-E-Z past things not only add color to my appearance but feel wonderful!

I want to stay fat because I loved the horrified looks I got from the ticket takers at the carnival. Oh, and the joy experienced from holding up the rides operation while I smooshed my way in and out of the rides will remain priceless. Truly celebrity status there. On the plus side I felt snugly secure in the rides with the bars... no chance this fatty was slippin out!

Because in the middle of those intimate moments with DH nothing shows my enthusiasm like being able to clap for him...without using my hands!
