P.S. I'm not saying it's impossible to be fat & happy about it, just that I am not.

No, I'm fat and most definitely not happy. Others would probably think I am though as I rarely discuss my weight or diet with anyone. I am generally a cheerful person so I can see how people might think I am happy with how things are.

I am not though, I hate it.

Why would you want to be happy about harming your health though !

IMO & experience sadly, if you really don't give a shit you end up eating what you like & putting on a stone a year

I have a very good friend who I've never heard even once complain about her weight.. She is around a size 18/20 & doesn't entertain diet foods in her home, eats what ever she likes doesn't exercise & really doesn't give a shit!! As a life long weight obsessed yo-yo dieter I am so envious of her mindset. I feel that if I could truly be like her I'd probably end up losing the desired amount of weight because I wouldn't be thinking about food so much!!

It's such a physiological battle... This reward/punish yourself with bad food.. Poor body image & generally being miserable. I have tried the oh well I'm knocking 40 & it's time to stop being so obsessed & bloody enjoy myself... But then my low self esteem takes over & persuades me to start another diet... Because all will be good in the world if I were 10 stone!!!! hmm

Is anyone else 100% ok with being overweight & how can others get there?! grin
