Girl, thank you for telling me! But I already know; we both actually have accounts on there :)
Thanks for looking out, though!
Anonymous asked: Hello, I am a 17 year old girl. I am 5'6 and I weight 203 pounds. I have never been in a relationship, so my family often make comments about me not being able to ever find a boyfriend. I feel so self- conscious that I am scare I remain single for the rest of my life. It feels like no one is ever going to be attracted to me and that feels horrible.I was recently told by my doctor that I needed to lose weight or I could get diabetes. however, people make fun from trying. I often get discourage.
Doctors can go fuck themselves. Most doctors still rely on the BMI scale, which is completely outdated. Just because a person is larger does not mean that they’re unhealthy or a diabetic risk. It’s a social stigma that fat people are only fat because they’re lazy, which couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s difficult going to the doctor’s and being a fat person, because no matter what you have or why you’re sick, they’re always going to bring up your weight. Even if your arm is falling off, they’ll tell you it’s because you eat too much! You must prepare yourself every time you go to the doctor’s office and know that you are there for one reason and one reason only, and it does not concern your weight. If you want to lose weight, go on ahead and don’t let anyone try to stop you, but don’t feel pressured to by other people. As long as you like who you are, it shouldn’t matter what other people think of you and what their opinions are of you.
Your family, much like doctors, can go fuck themselves. It is your life and your choice whether or not you want to have a boyfriend. Just because there isn’t a man in your life doesn’t mean that you should not enjoy yourself and live in the moment. If you’re waiting for a man to validate your existence, you’ll miss out on life. You’re 17, you’re a teenager! Enjoy your youth while you have it! Of course being a teenage girl, part of your mind is going to be occupied by thoughts of the opposite sex and who you have a crush on, etc., but you have a good 60 or-so years on this planet, and I’m sure that before too long you’ll find someone. I know it’s hard having the people closest to you constantly berate you and tear you down, but at the end of the day you have to be able to look at yourself in the mirror and be happy with the choices that you’ve made.

Anonymous asked: I have always been vary self conscious of my thighs. I unfortunately tend to hold a lot of weight in them, so I tend to get the "cottage cheese effect". Do you think that most people find that repulsive because they think of it as a sign of being fat. Or do you think they find it repulsive because it just looks bad?
Personally, I like the cottage cheese effect! I know that there’s a stigma put on it, but I can’t really figure out why (even Annie thinks that it’s kind of weird that I like it). I like curves on a woman, and with the “cottage cheese effect,” you get a lot of curves in one place, the place in question being a woman’s supple thighs. Mmmm….
But to answer your question, I think that it’s a combination of the two reasons, which is ridiculous because even skinnier people sometimes have cellulite. Much like stretch-marks, everyone has cellulite, and it manifests itself on the body in different ways because everyone carries their weight differently.
Annie’s mom says that the best way to get rid of the “cottage cheese effect” (in case you’re wondering) is to whack the area with a wooden spoon repeatedly to flatten the cellulite and make the fat even over the area (we’re not doctors). Apparently it’s a Spanish household “cure.” Hopefully this long-winded answer helps in some way.

Anonymous asked: Not really asking something but just wanted to say I LOVE you guys blog! You are so open and honest and give me so much hope that maybe, as a plus size girl myself, I'll be able to find a guy that appreciates me the way I am too. Thanks for sharing!
The only thing standing in the way of you finding love is time! The waiting game sucks, but sometimes all you can do is play it. But once you find that special someone who does love you for who you are then it will be well worth the wait.
