Im Fat. I wasnt always fat (which obviously implies that I was once physically fit). I dont plan on being fat forever. And while packing on the pounds is not something I would recommend to others, its not something to be feared either.

I was a skinny little runt of a kid growing up. I was always the smallest on my sports teams, both in height and girth. My body started to fill out around my senior year of high school. But while the other student athletes were hitting the gym (and their dietary supplements), I shied away from unnecessary exertion and instead turned to writing and music.

By my sophomore year at college, Id gained “the freshman fifteen” and then some. My mom, noticing my plumpness on one of her visits, gave me an Ab Roller for my birthday (thx mom). Since then, my weight and shape have fluctuated from “ripped with a six-pack” to “round with a keg.”But I must say that my level of happiness has been relatively unaffected by how fat Ive been over the years, seeing as how Im presently both fat and happy, though not happy to be fat.

Why I Never Weigh Myself Anymore follows a young girl who grew up wanting to gain weight, and reluctantly ends up getting her wish. I Was A Fat Kid—And I Finally Understand Why shows how growing up overweight can affect someones entire outlook on life. And When Your Mother Says Shes Fat is a letter that reads as the confession of a daughters past misconceptions.

Just because youre overweight (or otherwise different) doesnt mean youre any less important or beautiful than the“normal looking” person right next to you. I guess the moral of the story is: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and happiness is in the heart of the beholder.

我很胖。我也不是一直都这么胖的(很明显,这句话暗示了我曾经体型健美)。我也没打算就这么一直胖下去。增重长胖并不是我想向诸君推荐做的事,但这也并非什么好惧怕的事。

小时候,我是个又瘦又小的孩子。我一直都是运动队里最小的那个,无论是身高还是体型。我的身子到了高二的时候才开始长肉。不过,当其他学生运动员投身健身房(和服用调节饮食的补充剂)时,我却不爱虚耗体力,只管把精力投向写作和音乐当中。

到我大二那年,我的体重增加了“新生15磅”,日后更是愈加严重。我妈妈在某次探访中发现我“发福”后,送了一副腹部健身器给我作为生日礼物(谢啦妈)。从那时起,我的体重和体型就起起落落,时而“现出六块腹肌”,时而又“挂着个水桶”。但我必需说,这些年来,我的快乐水平并没有因为自己的肥胖程度而有所影响。看看我现在,尽管对自己的肥胖感到不满,但我还是又胖又快乐的。

《生命不能承受之“重”》讲述了一位年轻女子成长过程中一直希望能增加体重,最后却不情愿地得偿所愿了。《胖娃辛酸史:我的胖,谁的错?》展示了成长路上体重超标如何影响到了一个人对人生的整体看法。而《给妈妈的信:你很“肥”,但很美!》则是一封女儿坦陈过去错误观念的告白信。

仅仅因为长得胖(或者说与众不同)并不意味着你的重要性和美丽比不上身边“长相正常”的人。我想这个故事的寓意是:情人眼里出西施,快意自在亲爱心。

我悔恨啊,春天没减肥,夏天没减肥,长膘的秋天、冬天来了,我只能徒伤悲了~

我很肥吗?这个问题,我得兜个圈子跟你说。当我们的Jesse童鞋大谈“肥并快乐着”的时候,我也禁不住发出“Im fat TOO”的感叹,结果被他大骂“CRAZY”。然而,每每当我翻弄一两年前那些现今已经无法穿下的衣裤时,那种“由俭入奢易”的痛苦,把我折磨得体无完肤。

胖与瘦的准绳很难定夺,但眼下无非就这三个标准:健康标准、个人标准和社会标准。肥胖对健康的危害,相信大家早已被医生们吓得够呛,不多说了。就个人而言,身材的困惑更多的是对于“那些年”的迷恋。而社会和世俗的看法才最让人闻风丧胆。

如今,减肥已成了一种通病。多亏了时尚界的吹捧,让那些晾衣架似的超模成了大家争相模仿的对象,人们对身材的要求近乎苛刻,相反地,那些“非主流”身材受到变本加厉的攻击,残忍程度简直可以杀人于无形。于是乎,体重超标的减,没有超标的也在减,妹纸们个个神经兮兮,生怕自己沦为别人口中的“肥婆”。

其实,“瘦”就一定快乐吗?“胖”就注定悲催吗?这个世界,除了胖瘦外,标准还有千万条,我们是否要全部达标了才能快乐?有时候,我对着镜子,却在迷惘自己过的是谁的人生。

人生匆匆几十年,或许尝试放宽心,我们就能过上一个不一样的人生。
