I'm fat. Not medically fat. Fat for me. Dbl-bouncing, jiggling, pulling-on-me-with-every-step-during-my-daily-run fat.
I'm older, have major fat genes, have had two pregnancies, crave sweets, been a little blue, and most days have to talk myself into my workout. So what?? So what if all of the above is true. Desire doesn't cause pregnancy. Anger doesn't leave a bruise. And NONE of the above is why I'm fat.
I'm fat b/c of the way I've been eating lately. That's an action for which I'm solely responsible. Being a healthy weight--an optimal weight--is 100% up to me. The rest is nonsense victim-speak.
Have you seen the one lately? How obesity might be related to your inner-ear..? Riiiiight. It's an orifice alright, but not your ear..!
So yeah, I'm pushing maximum density right now and have no one and nothing to blame but myself.
I'm outta here. Gonna go catch a run...

Wow! This is one of the first times I've seen what I've felt in print! A. I define what fat is for me, and it doesn't start at 80lbs overweight like all my "office butt" co-workers. B. When I do gain a few, I know EXACTLY what happened. Keep speaking the truth! You're so brave you deserve a cape and a cool nickname.
People would call this neurotic and eating disordered, but this is precisely why you'll never be fat. It's a slippery slope to fatness, and you gotta catch yourself when you start to slip.
MeMe, it's good to see that you're back on this blog. I've missed reading your entries for the past five months and was afraid you had abandoned it. I'm a little disappointed to learn that you've gained some weight, but I understand you're human like the rest of us. I understand the struggle better than most people, and also about having the fat gene. Anyway, keep up the fight. We need you as a role model.
MeMe, PLEASE keep up the great work! It seems many people lack either the sense or the courage to speak the truth, when the distorted message of "love your extra fat" is fashionable these days and bizarrely equated to "self love."' I'd be an avid reader were you to come back to blogging...
To the commenter who said "it's a slippery slope to fatness"-- don't forget, there's hope for every body! The fattest person alive on earth could wake up at any moment, and decide to eat just the right amount of calories... it's part of the gift of being human. Much love.
