i want you (she's so heavy)



I fell off the diet and exercise wagon with a loud thud, but to be honest, right now I really don't care. It's not on my list of priorities. I'm so preoccupied with getting ready for my trip that I don't want to worry about that stuff. I'm sure that will change once I go shopping for summer clothes, but right now, I couldn't care less. As I told Sister, I don't need to go on some strict, last-minute diet in order to slim down before I leave, because my intentions are not to sexually attract anyone over there. I just don't want my European travel shots to be icky. "Look, this is fat me at the Coliseum. There's me and my chins at the Leaning Tower of Pisa." Stuff like that.

I think about fat all the time. I'm sure many people do. I won't say women more than men because it's a generalization and I'm not even sure it's true. But suffice it to say, some people are more consumed by it than they should be. Myself included.

But it gets tiring. I mean, really tiring. I'm sure Boyfriend finds it tiring as well. How many times can I possibly harass him into explaining why he's with a chubby girl like me? How many times does he have to tell me what a stupid question that is? Besides, after all the damn walking and standing around I did today, I am too tired to even think of exercise.

I was looking around the net for some stuff and found this blog post. Apparently the gals over at Fatty McBlog decided to do an experiment. They posted an ad on Craigslist asking men why they would or would not date a fat girl. They then posted all the results that they got in the first 45 minutes!

*Warning: If you are the least bit overweight, you may find this incredibly offensive and hurtful. As I did.

Your butt is wide, well mine is too
Just watch your mouth or I'll sit on you
The word is out, better treat me right
'Cause I'm the king of cellulite
Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all right

My zippers bust, my buckles break
I'm too much man for you to take
The pavement cracks when I fall down
I've got more chins than Chinatown

Well, I've never used a phone booth
And I've never seen my toes
When I'm goin' to the movies
I take up seven rows

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Don'tcha call me pudgy, portly or stout
Just now tell me once again who's fat

When I walk out to get my mail
It measures on the Richter scale
Down at the beach I'm a lucky man
I'm the only one who gets a tan
If I have one more pie a la mode
I'm gonna need my own zip code

When you're only having seconds
I'm having twenty-thirds
When I go to get my shoes shined
I gotta take their word

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, sha mone
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds
Lemme tell you once again who's fat

If you see me comin' your way
Better give me plenty space
If I tell you that I'm hungry
Then won't you feed my face

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Woo woo woo, when I sit around the house
I really sit around the house

You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know, you know, you know, come on
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And you know all by myself I'm a crowd
Lemme tell you once again

You know I'm huge, I'm fat, you know it
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, you know, hoo
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And the whole world knows I'm fat and I'm proud
Just tell me once again who's fat
