Being Fat

In the past obesity was never a major problem. Being a big women was classified as of being healthy,fertility, strong with the ability to survive..

In today's society obesity is a major problem leading to health issuers, such as hypertension, heart problems diabetes and many more chronic illness .

There are studies that says, some Black large women have more body satisfaction; they are less concern with dieting and weight fluctuations then white women.

However the weight loss, medical, advertising have a large impact on women, these industries all insist that white and thin is beautiful. Fat women encounter hostility and is discriminated because of the extra pounds. In some poor communities 50%of the women are fat, with a lot of witness cruelty from others.

some large size women are well educated with degrees are pass, over because of their weight. I talk to a well educated Large women who told me a story about her weight. I never wanted to be fat but it's part of my life, I have excised, been on of thousand diets but nothing really worked, I am not ashamed of myself for being fat.

Everyone can't be skinny she smiled, as long as I'm not sick who really cares. I really feel that a person has to be comfort within themselves, regardless to what others might think.

      Fat women encounter hostility and discriminated against if they are over weight. Some of the problem in poor communities are-poor eating habits , a lack of excising, mental health, isolation, depression and living in a society that ridicule over-weight people.
