do you ever feel too fat to go out?

i am supposed to go to this event tonight to hear a speaker I am really interested in. I can zip up a shirt I used to wear and I just feel too fat to go. Any suggestions? thanks!

ugh - i know the feeling. But if it's a speaker you really do want to hear, don't pass it up just because you're feeling fat. You'd be sorry. Just try to find something passable - even if it's not what you'd rather wear - and go. Do yourself a favor, though - and this is easier said than done, but try! - give yourself a little pep talk before you leave. Chances are you don't look as fat as you feel and others are most likely not going to notice, so just put on a happy face. A good personality can carry you through a tough night of not feeling your best.
And try to enjoy the night! : )

In my sociology of women class the other day, my Prof told us about a study done on 200 American women of all sizes. 100 % of the women thought that they were larger then they actually were.

We all have fat days but that dosn't mean that other people notice. A great personality that exudes confidence is more apparent in a crowded room then a shirt that dosn't fit just right! You will be fine. A pep talk is a great idea! I started working on my confidence levels and everything else in my life fell into place, weight loss, social life, professional life. You can do it to!!

Yes, but that is my depression, not reality, so I go anyway. It is good for me

GO. Not only will you get to hear a speaker (usually motivating and interesting) but you'll be out of the house so you can't sulk, snack or get depressed about not being there. Just think of the calories you'll burn getting there too. Even getting in and out of the car burns more calories than sitting on the couch.

OP here,

thanks, everyone! I did go. The speaker was interesting. I didn't socialize but I got out and it felt good and it actually got my mind off feeling fat and it help me to avert a binge. Thanks!!

OMG-- I've done this all week

I've been hiding out in my house all week because I've felt too gross to go out... It is starting to get hot here and I'm sooooo blech! That's it. Back out there tomorrow.

too fat to go out

I'm glad you attended the lecture. Although I know I'm fat, I realize that there are some functions, such as lectures and museum trips,where my weight doesn't matter.

I understand- there are plenty of places I avoid because of this. Rmember though, it's your Spirit that matters. Your Spirit is the picture, your body is just the frame. Don't miss the picture for the frame!

In all reality if you go to a public place which is not based on socializing (ie. bar or restaurant) people will not be critical of your appearance, you are the only one who will be thinking "OMG I am so fat, how could I ever think I could go out amongst people". Don't be so hard on yourself, your persepective if different from everyone elses.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
