Fat Pride burning skinny girls hides? Too Fucking Bad.



Above: PlusModel Magazine's positive body message and Italian Vogue proving that women of all shapes and sizes are in Vogue.


Today when I googled chubbygirlintheworld.com I came across an interesting link towards the bottom of the results page. It was a blog post from a blog I won't mention but the title was "Fat Pride burns my hide." It was an all out rant against the plus size fashion industry, a commentary of Plus Model Magazine's spread featuring straight and plus size models and how she was "disgusted" by it.

The blogger goes on to say that plus size people should not be represented in more media because being plus size isn't "aspirational", that if big were beautiful we would see more plus size models (an upward trend in the fashion industry btw) she also goes so far as to call one model "disgusting" because she has what I perceive to be a normal amount of fat on her body. I just don't get it, why are you so mad skinny girl?

I honestly was heated after reading this not because I am upset about her immature comments about a plus size model believe me we've heard it all. No use in trying to change your mind but I just don't get it what does having plus size women in campaign do to hurt the skinny agenda? How on earth does this hurt you? PlusModel magazine has been an inspiration to all those women who are not a size 0 to get with new trends, inspire confidence and boost morale so that all women can concentrate on feeling good about themselves instead of trying to tear others down. I don't want a skinny versus Plus war, I just want people to be happy in their own skin. There is one thing she's right about though, if I could push a button and be smaller the way the blogger and everyone else in the world wishes I was then I would do it instantaneously.

Surprised? Why would anyone be, my size makes me a social pariah in so many ways, it affects my health and the way I percieve myself, it makes me think I can't do certain things so yes if I could instantly change it I would like so many others. Why because people like this blogger make it impossible to feel good about myself, I can say as many mantras as I want, have confidence until the cows come home but in the back of my head that damn skinny bitch is watching every bite I take and she won't leave me the fuck alone and she makes me do stupid shit like not eating, taking laxatives, over exercising and I know she does it to you too. But I've realized something:
We don't have to let her.

Not everyone is like that blogger most people out in the world will root for you when you want to make a life change, lose weight, get a degree or start a new career. Most people will do everything they can to help you because people are good, people have been there, they know what it's like to have a binge weekend, they know what it's like to not like their body , they've experienced failure and the truth is most people think you're gorgeous and frankly you don't have time for any bitches who think otherwise.

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
