    I’d rather be fat than someone who would rather be fat than dead.

  8. Lindsay October 3, 2007 at 1:40 pm #

    Wait. I totally mixed that up. I blame uh, that thing over there, behind you.

    Lemme try again.

    I would rather be fat than be someone who would rather be dead than fat.

    I think that’s right. I know what i MEAN, but i can’t make it sound right outside of my head. lol.

    I’d rather be fat than be that bloviating windbag Michael Moore. I’d rather be fat than starving to death from malnutrition. I’d rather be fat than be someone obsessed with their weight.

  20. Bridey October 3, 2007 at 4:58 pm #

    …than tubular, as is the current fashion

    …than actually feel guilty about something so stupid and inconsequential as what food I choose to eat

    …than be vain or insecure enough to obsess over the shape of my body

    …than believe that only one body type is compatible with good health and a happy life

  26. Lunadog October 3, 2007 at 8:17 pm #

    …rude and intolerant.

    I once had to make that choice – fat or dead – when I was put on large doses of corticosteroids, which saved my life but put nearly 100 extra pounds on me. I’m here to say I made the sensible decision.

  27. deja pseu October 3, 2007 at 8:22 pm #

    …Ignorant

    Better fat than flat!

  29. Annalucia October 3, 2007 at 8:58 pm #

    ….plagued with facial hair. Oh wait, the Annalucia has that as well :(

    Still, she would rather be fat than:

    …mean and crazy (like her mamma)
    …unable to put together three sentences without gratuitous political snark (like her sister-in-law)
    …unable to enjoy her own cooking
    …married to anyone other than the Tedesco
    …sick, blind or crippled.

  30. Dani October 3, 2007 at 9:02 pm #

    I’d rather be fat than unable to enjoy my own baking. I’d rather be fat than so bony that I poke my fiance when we cuddle in bed. I’d rather be fat than unhappy. I’d rather be fat than character-less, passion-less, or mindless. I’d rather be fat than obsessed with my looks, how people perceive me, or whether I’ve gained two pounds today.

  31. Sniper October 3, 2007 at 9:13 pm #

    …mean.
    …incurious.
    …someone else.

  32. Gauss October 3, 2007 at 9:31 pm #

    I’d rather be fat than stupid, shallow or a boring plastic doll.

  33. Zenevieva October 3, 2007 at 10:32 pm #

    skinny.

    ugly.

    anything else.

  34. Margo October 3, 2007 at 10:58 pm #

    Word up to Pinkleader and the other smart cookies here; I’d rather be a size 20 who can comfortably run 5km in close to half an hour than thin and very unwell.

    …be cruel
    …be mean
    …feel the need to make anyone feel ugly or lacking because of their size (such as dismissing petite women for being ‘unfeminine’ or ‘easily broken’).

  35. shiloh October 4, 2007 at 12:58 am #

    miserable.
    unloved.
    unloveable.
    petty, vicious, vindictive.
    an A-grade bitch.
    intolerant.
    self-righteously moralising on every bloody stray calorie that passed another person’s lips.
    cranky.
    live without peanut butter.
    have osteoporosis at 35.
    have silicon implants to make me curvier.

    Hmmm…feel strongly on this one, so the list can go on for quite a bit.

  36. Jenny October 4, 2007 at 9:33 am #

    …bulimic, again.

  37. Toby Wollin October 4, 2007 at 9:41 am #

    …someone else. I like me.
    …mean and angry.
    …hungry and narcisistic.
    …vapid and cruel.
    …shallow.
    …famous.
    …infertile.
    …lonely.
    …faithless.
    …a bad friend.

    This is a great exercise. I realize that I would rather be fat and be myself, with all the good things I have, than be skinny and not be me. There isn’t much of myself I would trade just to be skinny, and I didn’t fully know that. Thanks.

  41. Laura October 4, 2007 at 1:21 pm #

    Ditto to Ms. Berry.

    I’d rather be fat than flat.

  42. KellyGirl October 4, 2007 at 2:11 pm #

    …so consumed with a number on a scale or the calories in a cupcake that I don’t have time to fight for the causes that actually matter.

  43. Nettie October 5, 2007 at 1:49 pm #

    I’d rather be fat than uneducated.
