Fat Probs: Installment III


It’s summertime baby.

Everyone is hitting the beach/pool. Rolling down the windows. Pounding down the ice coffees, ice cream, hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries.

Fat people around the nation are sighing as they pull out their bathing suits from the drawer, realizing they will no longer fit.

With this fat problems installment, I will be taking the summer to reflect upon fat culture so I can come back at the start of the 2016-2017 school year with some fresh fat probs.

As I bid you farewell for the summer, I hope this is the best fat probs yet.

Fat Probs

  • When people who haven’t seen you in while say “you look good!” even though you both know you just got fatter
  • When you get weird looks while trying to be healthy
  • When you get weird looks while eating something terrible for you
  • When you make plans to eat food and then they fall through
  • Having to shop for clothes and stores never stock your size
  • Bending over to tie your shoes

User Submitted Fat Probs:

  • Always self conscious about people staring at my double chin
  • Can’t look good in anything but loose clothing
  • I look like a meatball 24/7 (short and round)
  • Chub rub
  • Ordering a four course meal while your friends are all eating salad

Some summer inspiration from Adele:

“I love food and hate exercise. I don’t have time to work out… I don’t want to be on the cover of Playboy or Vogue. I want to be on the cover of Rolling Stone or Q. I’m not a trendsetter… I’m a singer… I’d rather weigh a ton and make an amazing album than look like Nicole Richie and do a s*** album. My aim in life is never to be skinny.” -Adele
