Im not fat by any means, but I am happy...



This quote is awful. It makes fat women sound like weak minded lemmings who *want* to look "pretty" but decide not to? I really don't get it.



It should be about getting healthy. I've never read your quote series before, but this one just struck me as a rude generalization.

It is just one woman's perception of what trying to fit into a specific role and falling short feels like. People do get depressed and they do feel shallow and empty.... like they will never measure up. I don't think it is meant to be a blanket statement, just an individual's perspective
