12 Struggles Every Fat Girl Knows To Be True

I am ridiculously fat, and no, I am proud of it. Now don’t get all riled up coz I am saying ‘fat’ and not ‘plus size.’ I want people to divorce the shame that tugs along with the label ‘fat’ and rightly so. Of course, I have my times when I wish things were a wee bit different but that does not give you the right to judge- NOPE! I love the slogan beauty comes in all sizes but damn you, try wearing my XL sized pants and those poor shoes that seem to whine with the weight of my body above it and you would know how fat feels like. Regardless, I am all classy and sassy, but this is going to be a whining fat girl’s diary… what- the world is just plain mean to us! So, here’s to the 12 things a fat girl can just relate to because hello world, only fat girls relate to other fat girls…

1. Oh, you’re beautiful, you don’t look fat

What makes you think fat can’t be beautiful? Backhanded and lame- get it straight dolts, they aren’t mutually exclusive! Now, STFU…

2. Cute clothes = broken heart

We spend ages in shopping lanes ogling the beautiful hot pants and tank tops and ending up buying baggy jeans and oversized tees because my outrageous thighs and the mountain arms need to be wrapped. *Grabs a towel and fumes*

3. Forever single

Just because I am fat doesn’t means that I am necessary single. Also, because I am single, it doesn’t have to be because of my bulky thighs. Maybe, I am just too *much* for a guy. Yes, I mean friggin’ awesome!

4. The doctor dilemma

No matter what the reason, a visit to the doctor involves an hour long lecture on how being overweight can kill you. Seriously doting doctor, flash news, I am still alive. In your face you monster!

5. Squeezing Shh… *in process*

Ever tried to squeeze in between two people so that you could move to the other side? This is a battle only we understand. Tuck in your tummy, stop your breath, push in your hips and wham collide with both the person! Hello, embarrassment!

6. The tears and the tears

Yes, too tight clothes tear apart and the eyes don’t fail to well up too. Our life is one constant battle. Heck, I should be conferred the bravery award.

7. Budget blow –up

Damn you fashion labels why do you need to be so discriminatory! Have you seen the way my budget blows up just because I am buying too many plus sized clothes. How could you charge XL clothes higher? I will sue you- no, wait, ain’t got no money for that either- coz guess what, you fed off my wads coz I need to clothe myself. Bloody hell!

8. Plus size? FTW

Pushing items under other items in my shopping cart doesn’t work- coz hello, plus size! Not to forget the ‘plus plus’ stares of the sales rep when they know which section they are gonna lead this ‘plus’ body to…arrgghh! Can they let ‘fat’ be a ‘flattering’ term, please?

9. Food bites- too much, too less

You eat less- people will judge you. Why are you so skinny, throw on some fat on that skeletal frame, will ya?

You eat more- this is why you are fat. Go a little easy on the food, it is food, not love!

Uhh– bite me? :/

Seriously man where do I go?? Junk eating inside my wardrobe with my oversized clothes as company. Heck yeah!

10. Sharma aunty

Every time you have an aunty coming to your home, it becomes a new game. Aap bataiye zara dekh ke ladki ka wajan kum hua kya? I wonder if she is secretly paid to weigh all the ‘ladkis’ in the neighbourhood- she’d be rich, stinking rich,that stinging pain in the a*s ‘aunty!

11. Exercise? We broke up.

Please bless me and don’t talk about exercise. We really don’t gel well with each other and we broke up. Also, I broke my exercise equipment. Stop giving me that look. It happens.

12. Shaadi ke ladoo

Cut the crap, will you? Just because I am married, I won’t find a guy – the shi**iest Indian logic of all time. Maybe, if there is no man manly enough to handle the extra awesomeness, I would happily die alone with 9 of my cats blessing my big body. Or simply wondering when I’d get up to feed them, coz well, they are hungry!

Relate much? Let’s take a group hug with all our tummies touching, eh? 😉

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
