Let’s talk plus size assumptions


Hello, I know it has been a hot minute since my last post, I am really trying to be more consistent.

Today I would like to address something I’m sure all plus size, curvy (or yes, fat) people have had to deal with. I’m going to call it the “plus size assumptions”

For example: All plus size people are lazy. For some its true, but that being said I know plenty of skinny lazy people. This may shock you (prepare to be horrified) but some fat people actually exercise. This may hurt to hear but it is possible to exercise and have body fat.

Example 2- All plus size, curvy and fat people eat bad foods. Again for some this is true, but that being said I know a very thin woman who lives off pop tarts and Pepsi. I eat mainly fruits and salads and I’m fat. I work with some vegans who eat healthy, go to the gym everyday and yes, still have body fat.

Just because you are fat it doesn’t mean you are lazy or eat bad (let’s face it, we all have our bad habits). One person’s ideal or healthy weight may not be the same as yours and that’s okay.

Just throwing this out there because this is how I gained most of my weight but some medications (including fertility), hormone imbalances, crohns disease, amongst others can all cause weight gain. Just because you are/have fat, it does not make you a lazy person. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and each one is beautiful

  1. Yes! All these presumptions I’ve come across at one time or another. It frustrates me that these negatives exist – and the people who think they can just come up and say this kind of BS to you when they wouldn’t dream of saying anything similar to someone who isn’t plus-sized.

    1. I completely agree. I just hate when some people see someone plus size and automatically think they are lazy, or eat really bad, or dont excercise. Everyones body is different. Even when I was a tiny teen at 122 pounds (thought I was too fat) I was wearing size 13 pants because I have big hips and a ass. Seriously back then I was all boobs and butt. Lol
