"Pudgy" is my favorite synonym for the word "fat". I actually love the word "fat" but there is already a zine out there called "The Fat Zine", and I am not here to steal anything from anyone. I am just here to speak my mind and to spread love and kindness.
SYNONYMS FOR Chubby, plump, hefty, plumpish, rotund, round, stout, thick-bodied, tubby, big, bulging, bulky, chunky, heavy, hefty, inflated, large, meaty, obese, plump, well-fed...
I would like to point out that none of the words above are "bad" words...I did however think "stout" was a beer, but whatever. :-)
You may want to lose weight. You may want to gain weight. You may be perfectly happy with your weight and size and looks right now…and the point of this magazine is so that everyone is happy with themselves right now! Our appearance means so much to society that it is tearing us down. Our mental health is in the shitter! Our kids are bullied. Complete strangers are making comments to complete strangers because they somehow think that their waist size makes them superior to others, and it doesn’t, and it never will!
What makes you beautiful is how you feel about yourself. When you genuinely like yourself you glow. You glow on the inside so much that it just flows out of you, and surrounds you, and it makes you so beautiful that harsh words from others, you don’t even hear them as insults. You recognize them for what they really are, cries for help from people who are unhappy with themselves. We all need to work on ourselves. We all need empathy for those who have more work to do. We all need to be accepting. You can weigh 400 and want to weigh 200 and still love yourself and how you look at 400. That’s my point, we need to find ways to feel love for and about ourselves now, as is. That doesn’t mean do not try to improve yourself if you feel you need to, that means don’t hate yourself because you feel you need to improve yourself. You, right now…You’re pretty damn awesome! You have at least 1 quality that you can build on to become anything and everything you have ever dreamt of, and I do too…That’s what this journey is about, and it is going to be a journey! A journey of self-discovery, which we can take part in together. No one is alone in this. I am by your side. You are by my side. WE are not alone. We have each other.
