I don't really know what to expect here. Whether this community is heavy on posting pictures, the age group of members etc. Well I'm 15, and some of the things I dislike about my looks are-
- I have really muscley lower legs from horse riding. They look manly.
- I have cellulite and stretch marks on my thighs, how much do you think these things actually matter to partners, because it matters alot to me.
- The lower half of my body is generally too big in proportion to the upper half.
Well anyway, I havn't joined yet, I just thought I'd introduce myself, read through some old posts and see what this community is like.
Comments are nice.
If you could all go here and vote on my pictures, I would appriciate it. People are being really mean over there and my pictures are being rated pretty low:
You have to rate a few pics before mine comes up, probably, and there are two of them. If you would please vote on them both, it would make this fat girls day. Thanks!

I must wonder if that was just this store, because I know that mine has plenty of servers, including myself, who are not thin by any means. And I know there's not a one of us who have been fired over it. Admittedly, we did have a small clash with management over thier vauge threats of firing waitresses who didn't conform to the dress code by wearing a man's shirt instead of woman's shirt, but we demonstrated the difficulty of finding a plain, long-sleeve, button-down white shirt in the women's section to begin with, let alone the virtual impossibility of finding one that actually fits if you're anything above a size ten. After counter-mutterings of "lawsuit over wrongful termination based on gender and size discrimination," we hit on the compromise that men's shirts are okay, as long as they fit.
So, if I can get my size eighteen self into a pair of jeans and a white shirt that fit very comfortably and make me look very neat, polished, and professional, I sincerely believe that the manager who told her, "Your shirt will never fit you correctly. And you will never be able to buy that one that does" was either talking out of his ass or just has a problem with larger-sized people. Although I'm aware that fat people are not currently a protected group, this is still a specious and utterly ridiculous reason to fire someone who is, by all accounts, a damn good waitress.
And here's a bonus! Look kids! It's further proof that Neil Boortz and Tucker Carlson desperately need to be slapped!
And now I'm off to the gym.
I am looking for women between a size 18 and 26 who might be interested in having a paysite to show off their curves and make some extra cash. Models must have a high quality digital camera and be proud of their bodies!
Check out the site...there is a model info link on the main page...read it, and let me know!
I'm Tami, I am a full time college student, girlfriend, friend, webmodel, size 22 or 3x in pants, size 40D in bras and 1x or 2x in most tops.
I include my sizes in my intro because I think they very much play a part in who I am. It took until recently (about a year ago) for me to finally accept that my genetics were pointing me in the heavy-set direction, and very recently (six months or so ago) to start to love my body truly. I don't want to give him all the credit, but a lot of it has to do with my boyfriend, who, even before we started dating, pushed me away from diets and towards a better self esteem.
I told you guys I'm a college, student, and I am. I have a double major in Philosophy and Criminal Justice, and I aim to work for the ACLU as a size activist, gay/lesbian/transgendered activist and lawyer. I want to protect our rights as citizens (those of you who are) of the United States. I highly encourage everyone to get out and vote in this election. I will not tell you who to vote for, that is for you to decide.
The reason I feel posting links to other size-friendly things, such as online stores, ebay auctions, or even other websites about fat in general is, I want everyone to be informed. Like someone said, it is sometimes hard to find clothes. Believe me, I know this first hand, and when I first started looking, I really could have used the help.
Anyway, this is me in a nut-shell. I promise I'm usually more interesting, but I have to get ready for class, so I guess you will have to wait to find that out.
I need all of your input on this before we come to a final decision. Thanks, guys.
So...tell me about a time that you totally ignored all your body hang-ups and insecurities and felt that you were a beautiful person. It can be any time you want and any type of beauty you want. Just give me a story about feeling good about yourself and what set it off. You can either reply in the comments or you can make a whole new post about it.
I have so much respect for her right this second.
Even if she is a scientologist.
