Seriously, what is it? I mean hell, im a fat guy myself, but have been steadily working on it, but still, people just tend to shy away from fat people in general, and why is that? Why are fat people always the brunt of jokes and portrayed as buffoons who can't do the simplest task? I really do feel that it is a misconception. I mean sure, there are some things thin people can do that we can't (like drive small cars..) but for the most part we are just as able to do things as people lighter than us. I have tried to lose weight for a good long while now, (I'm right around 280ish, down about 100 pounds or so) but people still tell me "why don't you lose weight, you'll look better!" I know that the attractive thing these days is to be sickly thin, but is that any reason for people like me, who are large as well as athletic to be shunned? Shouldn't there be a point in all of this where the jokes and stares stop?

I wish I could tell you it is different but I know it is true. Society has not accepted fat people very well unfortunately, they are often looked down on as you say. A fat woman has a better chance than a fat guy, life isnt fair. Congratulations on your weight loss that is an awesome effort. I encourage you to keep at it, not for anyone else but for yourself......... Hugs Jezz.

I'm not sure why overweight people are shunned and made fun of..maybe the people who are doing that...want to feel good about themselves and they go about it the wrong way. They are the ones with the issues!! I have dated overweight men before, for me...it's not a problem! Hang in there...kudos to you for losing weight, keep up the good work. That's something to be very proud of!!

Yes, unfortunately what Jezz says is true. But it really bites when you look at it, I am not sure of the statistics but probably about 60% or more of Americans are overweight, not a good number, but the truth. So you would think there would be more acceptance. And for those of us working on getting healthier, we should be noticed MORE!!! Great job!! And good luck on more!

Yep I'm with Maggie (again) I like men with meat on him! He gives me a hug and I feel safe, he curls up with me and I feel loved. Yeah I'm no skinny minny myself but hell give me a man who wears his weight well! Difference between slob and heavy you may weight 280 but if you dress sloppy that makes you look bad. Wear clothes that fit and you look hot!!
