FAT Positive Friday #2 Things I am going to miss about being fat

Now this one is kind of odd, but it really does bring me a lot of joy.    I really like doors with the push bar on them as they are the perfect height for my stomach to touch them first, to the point where I don’t need to use my hands on the door at all.

This is such a great skill that when I am holding a couple of things and need to get out quickly I just keep walking right into the door and through. Now you may be saying that I could go out bum first on these occasions, but you haven’t felt the power of a stomach extremity until you have used it to improve your life.

Interestingly there was a comment on the Bad Breakfast post I that said I was a ‘fat shamer’, without saying why.  I have to say this caught me by surprise as I don’t mind being fat at all and am quite happy at my size but for two things: 1) I don’t feel good and my health and well being are compromised and 2) there is a really bad selection of clothes in Canada for size 5XL.  I also want the use of the word fat to be less stigmatize and people more accepting for all sizes just as all other variations of humanity.
