AN SSBBWs WORLD
Information and rants about living in the real world as an SSBBW
As SSBBWs, we live in a world built for smaller people. Each day we face challenges to fit in, or even to just fit. While education and information are powerful tools, our best resource is each other. Let us know your tips or rants about this subject at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Each month we will profile an SSBBW to help inspire those SSBBWs who haven't yet gotten that they are wonderful, caring, sexy, special people. Click here to read this month's profile of MeLissa, a 32 year old from Mississippi.|
Letters to the Editor...
We've received a few letters to the editor lately and would like to post them here. If you have anything to say we'd love to hear from you too, so send us an email.
I don't usually watch Dr. Phil but was flipping the channels the other day and found his show and he was doing something on an SSBBW. They showed video clips of this woman eating a pile of hamburgers or bags of chips. They went to her house and through her kitchen and found all kinds of junk food. And I'm thinking to myself, "this just perpetuates the stereotype people have of obese people". I know that not all SSBBWs sit and eat junk food all day. I don't. There are many SSBBWs out there that have a good active life. They work, they have families, they have lovers, and they don't eat junk food all day. But you ask someone what they think of when they see a large person and they think "they sit around all day eating junk food and living off disability". And that is because of shows like this.
Not Typical in RI
Editor's Note : That is why we started this magazine. To show the world and other SSBBWs that there is life out there for us.
WLS [Weight Loss Surgery]
I belong to alot of online groups for large people and for the most part love them. However lately I decided to have weight loss surgery and mentioned it on one of my groups and got bashed for it. I know alot of people are against the surgery and people are entitled to their opinions but why should they put me down for my decision? They made me feel small and unloved.
Editor's Note : We're sorry this happened to you. Making the decision to have weight loss surgery is not an easy decision and support of friends and family is a big key to it's success. For those of you who oppose WLS we ask you to be considerate of those that make the decision and to be supportive.
