About 10 years ago I was talking with a friend about my weight and and how I swore I was born a size 10. Joking. I was sharing stories of how I have struggled and how I was sure looking for the days that I didn't need to shop at the fat ladies store anymore. Here is how it went...
Me: I would love it if I could never set foot into the fat ladies store again. I hate the fact I have to go there. Nothing like saying hey thanks for the special store for fat people. Like short people have a special store.
Her: ummm...what did you say?
Me: I just hate Fat ladies stores..clothes are cute but I wish I could go anywhere.
Her: Fat? You said Fat?
Her: well I don't use that word.
I changed the subject quickly...However I could not believe that anyone would think that word was "bad" It was simply stating the truth, Fat is Fat.

That was 10 years ago and I still use the word the word fat and my girlfriends I know cringe like I just killed someone. I chuckle when I see them squirm as the word is so blatuntly used like the celluite on their ass.
