The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!”

Well I won’t lie, this was a pretty hard challenge for me. If it weren’t for the list, honestly I likely wouldn’t own a bikini. Yes, I bought it for SPITE!! I love it, it is super comfy and I feel very cute in it.  But posting this makes me feel…. exposed. Although since we are being frank it is less to do which the fact that I am in a bikini and more to do with the fact that you can see ALL of me.  It’s obvious why this is on the list, the people that made it think I should be embarrassed of my body and that I should hide as much of it as possible. Well screw that. I might be uncomfortable, I might make other people uncomfortable but I am going to keep pushing boundaries until I don’t feel that way anymore. I am an awesome human being and this bikini is hella cool. ‘Nuff said!

swing

You know when I first saw this picture my husband took of me I cringed. I saw every single part of my body that I have a hard time loving. But I stepped away from it and tried really hard to look at myself as a strange and you know what I saw? That giant shit eating grin.  You can’t fake that kind of joy.  I got on that swing and 30 years fell off my life, my legs were pumping and I was flying and I was 10 years old without a care in the world. I don’t want things like tummy rolls and double chins to keep me, or anyone else from having these kind of experiences. I read something the other day that said “Fat is something you have, not something you are”  it was a great article, you can read it here, after you are done reading me of course.  I am a good person, a successful human by most measures, I am funny and smart and have amazing friends. I like myself and I love my life and that means I have to stop treating myself as less than just because I have more than!

rollBaby, that’s just how I roll…. with my rolls!!  I haven’t rolled down a hill in many a decade, I had totally forgotten how fun it could be. I would like to thank the jackasses who made this list for giving me to motivation to tap into my inner child and roll down a hill with wild abandon. My girl friends waited for me at the bottom of the hill cheering me on I felt awesome and silly and dizzy, it was fantastic.  Screw you haters, I am having a really grand time proving you wrong!

movies

Well I can totally understand this one…. I mean you wouldn’t want my giant fat body blocking that little tiny movie screen! Or maybe my plus sized laughter might drown out the sound of the THX surround sound!

Face it folks! theater seats are more comfortable than airplanes these days, Hell, the ones in Bayers Lake even rock. Nothing about my weight is going to impact the enjoyment of any cinematic master pieces so just eat your popcorn and M&M already!

Driving

I waited a long time to learn to drive, until my late 30’s, but now that I have that freedom I could not image ever giving it up. When I look at this list I sometimes try and rationalize what may have prompted something to be added to it. I know it is stupid the list was clearly created by absolute idiots but still, my brain likes to apply order to chaos. My weight has no impact on my ability to drive, as you can see I fit behind the wheel just fine, my seat belt fits just fine. I don’t take up any more room on the road.  I love driving, I love going fast with my tunes cranked especially when I am by myself with no agenda. Sorry haters but this big booty babe won’t be leaving the roads any time soon.

Ironic happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this.

I have to tell you that I struggled with finding an ironic shirt. I am not even sure what an ironic shirt should say so instead I went out and found me a shirt that I hope says “Screw that haters I love myself anyway!!”

I wore my shirt with joy and pride as my hubby and I were out and about today. I wore it to get coffee, to watch #HFXJugger and to get groceries. I noticed a few looks but mostly people wanted to know where the could get their own. Here by the way, along with loads of other cute ones.
