Men and Women who are Larger than Life
Hi there,
i joined this community mainly because i was hoping some of you guys could help me out. One of my friends is a larger type guy and finds it difficult to buy clothes. Now he has finished uni he needs smarter clothes etc for work. Could anyone reccommend shops in Glasgow (UK) that do larger mens sizes and/or suits?
thanks :)

I just joined this community. I was browsing a few pages back and I saw an advertisement for a book that claimed the publicity about the risks of obesity is a myth. Does anyone here actually buy that? I mean of course there are certain types of "overweight" that are OK...people who are slightly overweight actually live longer...but the key is "slightly" meaning 5-10lbs. There's a difference between being overweight because you're very muscular and just having 100-200 pounds of excess fat. Anyway I myself am a bit overweight but I am just wondering what is the attraction to believing something that completely goes common sense and the entire medical community.

Hello everyone! - Auctions! [Mar. 31st, 2005|11:29 am]
Men and Women who are Larger than Life

Hey all. :-) My name is Dana (known online as Aurora) and I'm a 19 year old college student in northern Minnesota. I've been a big gal all my life, and know what? I love it! *dances* I am currently in a pickle of a situation, though. I have met the man of my dreams and have been "dating" him online for 9 months. Plans have been made, and I'm going to take a greyhound bus to meet him in May. The trip is going to cost me $350, and I want this more than anything. The only way it will ever happen is if I can sell some of this stuff on Ebay. Please check out my auctions! It would mean the world to me.

There's a prom dress, silky black pants, a neat leather belt, and a really pretty peasant top shirt. I've got another prom dress (used, much cheaper) that's not up there yet.

You can find them HERE.

Thank you for looking and considering! *hugs for all*

i just love this [Oct. 19th, 2004|12:11 pm]
Men and Women who are Larger than Life

I asked God one day, what was wrong with me. There's something that it
has to be, He answered promptly. "Dear God," I began, with my face hung
down. He answered back, "Why the frown?"
"Why," may I ask, "did you make me this way?" "What way is that? What
are you trying to say" "My body, Dear lord, My face, it's too square.
They are the wrong color, my eyes and my hair. My hips are too wide, my
belly to round. When I look at my feet, I can't see the ground. My
thighs are so thick, my feet, they stick out. My fingers, my toes, they
are big as a trout. That's not all, there's hair on my face. My eyes are
too close, they're in the wrong place. I'm loud sometimes, and bossy too
sometimes I wish I was just born a mute." The Lord, he just chuckled, as
if it was funny, "Dear Child, you will learn,
that's more than plenty.
You're hair and your eyes, those things don't matter. It's the size of
your heart, and not if you get fatter. You have the gifts, that I've
given to you. to cheer up your friends when they're feeling blue. You
make people laugh, and forget all their sorrows. Those are the things,
that make more tomorrows. Your children and family, I put in your care.
Those are the reasons, that I put you there. You're smart and you're
witty, people love you. Why can't you seem to love yourself too?" I
thought a minute, not sure what to say, then into my mind popped events
of the day. "They laugh at me, you know, people who see me, they think
its funny but it hurts, can't they see? I've tried everything, to be as
they say, small and thin, in a petite way."
The Lord he looked at me, with a curious grin. He said with a smirk,
"Who said thin was in? I made you perfect, the way that you are. Those
magazines and models, they take it too far. I made you bigger, cause
that's who you are. There's nothing small about you my child. You are
too grande to fit those things they call in. To say you are grande is
still putting it mild. You have a big heart, so full of love.
You have deep emotions, no one can deny. You do things largely,
everything with pride, you're thoughts, you're ideas, even tears you
cry. I made you big,
that is a fact.
I made you like me.
Don't forget that.
You are too special to define,
and even harder to confine."

Hey! I'm new. My name is Alex, I am 14 years old (15 soon), and overweight. But I want to change it, which seems wrong. But then I realize how I want one of my dreams to come true--

To become an Olympic swimmer.

I suppose I'm just doing this for me and my personal reasons. I want to become something and the smallest weight with my height (5'5"-5'6") was 123 and the highest was 141. It's annoying and, I don't know. I mean, I'm not happy with my weight and I'm considered "fit and fat".

Any advice?

I haven't posted in here in a while and I thought that I would. I have a book that I highly recommend, even though its sort of teenie, its called "The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big, Round Things" Its about a 15 year old plus sized girl and her coming of age, some of her trials and tribulations. I related to her completely because I am a plus sized 15 year old girl. It was really cute. Anyway, school shopping has proven to be a bitch,as always...its so hard to find something that fits right that isn't floral. I also have come to find that jean makers dont like to make jeans tight fitting, I guess they don't want to see it. The legs to the jeans I buy always have literally 4 inches of extra fabric circumference wise, its very annoying, the problem is easy to fix, but it would be nice to buy a pair that I dont have to alter.Everything in my closet is so conservative. Even though I am a young republican that doesn't mean I have to dress like one all the time, I would like to show a little more than my elbows and ankles.
Also, some advice is greatly needed... I was bowling the other day and one of the lane techs was really cute and I noticed he was looking at me. I am going back this Sunday but I am too chicken to say anything for fear of rejection or the fact that maybe he was checking out one of my very cute, skinny friends which always seems to be the case. Its hard going places with my friends and my sister and seeing guys talk to them and ask them for phone numbers and totally over look me as if I were noting more significant than a park bench.I suppose my time will come to find someone that finds me desirable. Well, enough with the therapy session. I hope everyone is doing well! Tell me how things are going in your lives.
Have a great day,

from my personal journal

there's too much cream cheese on my bagel. well, wait. not too much, because i'm enjoying it thoroughly. there's "more than necessary, justine" cream cheese on my bagel. hush, mother. i'm listening to fiona and not to you.

stream of consciousness -- thought y'all might find it amusing. (should probably point out i'm 40 years old and haven't lived with my mother since i was 16. gods, how those tapes can play in our heads...)
