I was reading a comment from naturalremedy about the nine year old girl that thinks she's fat. I think it's sad too. I have been plus size since the third grade. I was taunted to the point that I felt as though I weighed nearly 400 lbs. In high school I was about 180 and almost 5'10. Not skinny but not hideously fat and undatable like I felt. Funny thing was the first non-high school guy to really get to know me...fell in love with me. I was amazed beyond words. We got married. We had two kids. My weight went up and down and it was never an issue for him. Not one derogatory comment about my weight. Not one time acting embarrassed of me. My last relationship was worse. He said it didn't matter to him that I'm fat. I was always made to feel that his family thought I wasn't good enough for him though because of my weight. Okay then there is Hollywood...lets talk about that. There was one movie where a (then) plus size Ricky Lake dated a handsome guy. Bridget Jones doesn't count because 1. Renee is anorexic the rest of the time. 2. Hugh Grant? Ick! So yes I'd like to see a movie where a plus size 20...woman gets...say Orlando Bloom. Not Gwyneth Paltrow in a fat suit either. Silence of the Lambs should be destroyed because "great big fat girls" in the movie were revealed to be all of a size 14! I would LOVE to be a size 14. So instead of three movie com

Starenight, I read what you said an I see that your situation was sad, I never thought I was out of touch but now I see that those negitive remarks expressed towards people of size are meant to be javilans hurld at another to denigrate their person. I've always been above average in the weight category, all I've ever found is women of the more trim description really a tad self obsessed. She wishes to be compared with the body of less stature. I found that sad for I always felt like Taviah from Fiddler on the Roof who had a wife with a proper double chin. A woman had little to arrange or display without her grandness. You look nice an tasty, sorta like a Thanksgiving turkey, I can almost taste the gravy as I see your breast. Have a good day.
