Thanks for sharing this. Definitely the first and most intimate piece of what it’s like to be fat.

I don’t really know what to say here, but please don’t read too much into it, especially on the idea that I’m categorizing you and making you into a story.

Just know that skinny and even fit folks out there are insecure as hell. If anything, them attacking fat people is a reflection on they feel about their own looks.
