I got to thinking about the pretty, heavy people out there. Like the plus size models. There are people who look good even when they're very heavy. And there are people who don't. People who really just don't look great even with just a few extra pounds on them.
I fall into the latter category & so you may be thinking this is just sour grapes.
And I am NOT saying it's okay to be heavy. It isn't & even when you eat right and exercise, too much weight will still be putting extra strain on your joints & your organs. You may indeed be very healthy, but don't kid yourself you wouldn't be healthier thinner.
But if you're attractive even at your heaviest, it probably makes it just a bit easier to stay heavier. Because let's face it - we all know weight loss is hard work.
Maybe people don't ignore you the way they do unattractive heavy people. Or maybe they still do; I wouldn't know. Maybe people aren't as judgmental of you as they are of unattractive heavy people.
Of course beauty is only skin deep. No matter what the package looks like, we are all special & we're all beautiful -- but isn't it harder to feel beautiful if you don't fall into the conventional definition of beauty?
I really don't have a point here, I just got to thinking about this yesterday & felt it would make a good blog post. I'm sure it will stir the pot & no doubt anger some people. That's not really my aim. I'm just curious what others think.
