Where is this Fat America?

Sexy BBWI’m just not seeing it these days.  Well… except when I look in the mirror.  But when I’m out and about, I don’t see that many overweight people at all anymore.  I was at the mall last week.  Maybe saw 9 or 10 overweight people throughout the entire mall.  Went to my daughters concert on Tuesday, out of the 500 people packed into the auditorium, only like 5 of us were overweight.  So where are these so called Fat Americans?  Giving my personal opinion, it’s all just a hoax to get money out of American people to spend on drugs and other devices or services to “stay in shape”.  I heard a news story somewhere, (wish I could remember where) that in fact, we are number 8 on the list of countries that have a problem with people being overweight.  Yet the way the media goes on about it, you’d think that over half our country is overweight.

There is a book that claims that my theory to be exactly right.  Fat Politics by J. Eric Oliver.  Is there that much truth to it?  I have no idea.  I’m not the type to sit and read books.  I’ll wait for the movie.

Why does this disturb me that I can’t find that many overweight people?  It’s because I’m a fan of Big Beautiful Women.  A “Chubby Chaser” if you will.  I’m not afraid to say it.  I like them with a lot of curve!   Though I’m not by any means wanting people to become overweight.  People are who they are.  And as a good friend of mine said, “I’d rather be fat and happy than skinny and miserable.”.  Sadly, both times I’ve quit smoking, I’ve put on some more weight.  I’m a bit too overweight.  I need to drop some.  I don’t mind being heavy, but I do mind being unable to do things I once used to do.  Which is horrible knowing I once had a 29 inch waist when I was 16 through 19 years old.  Even back then, I would check out female classmates that were overweight because I found them more attractive.  I just never spoke up then because of what people would say.  Now I wished I had.

Point being, if we are so overweight?  Where the hell are these people?
