Fat can be Fabulous!!!

Hi guys,

I came across this article. Being a makeup artist (chubby, and always on the side lines... *sniff*) i thought it was super refeshing to see!
Would love to know what the rest of you think...

I feel conflicted about this, to be honest. I do believe you should be happy with yourself, but I fear that embracing being overweight is dangerous to your health. (And I'm using "your" here as a plural...not necessarily you, OP!)
If a person eats a diet full of veg., fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains and exercises on a regular basis, and they are still overweight, then I think tests need to be run to find out if there is an underlying cause. If not, then beating oneself up over extra weight is ridiculous. NOW, if a person is eating McDonald's, candy, soda, etc as their main diet, and they rarely do anything at all that is physically taxing, then I think fat is not beautiful at all but a hinderance to a healthy lifestyle.

I couldn't get past the picture of the girl on girl thing. That was gross.

That was gross? Puh-lease.

Most of those women weren't that fat- there were guaranteedly not bigger than a US 16, which is still in the "average" size range of clothing. (a 16w is diferent than a 16) and most were probably size 12. Their weight is not going to be much of a health concern.

I would love to know what the men on Peertrainer think of those pictures. Specifically the one in the gray body suit & the other pictures that show fat rolls. I could never feel sexy looking like that. Is that just my hang up? Do you men find those women appealing?
