    I fell in love with trumpets myself. It had to be the right trumpet though...more like borderline trumpet/slim A. It gave me a nice hourglass shape. If it was anything but that I did feel just fat.

      Hey ladies, check out this article about "fat" dance clubs - it's quite interesting. What do you ladies think??

        that's kinda awesome, lisa. i hate how some started saying it was encouraging people to be overweight tho. anything that encourages people to go out, dress up, feel good about themselves, and DANCE (hello, last time i checked, that was EXERCISE) instead of sitting home on the couch wallowing in self-loathing and a pint of ice cream is a GOOD thing.

        it also cracked me up to say a thin person could go there and feel what it's like to be in our world, i.e. the only person who doesn't fit in ... LOL give me a facking break! a thin person will NEVER know what that is like, because there is no negative association with being thin. honestly, who is going to feel sorry for the only skinny b*tch in a fat bar? are they serious?

        i found that gay bars are very welcoming to people of any size, color, whatever. you can be as free as you want, as outrageous as you want, dance as crazily as you want, and be WHO YOU ARE. strangely, the one i used to go to with my gay friend (who has since passed) was also named "bounce." :)

            Hey Lisa!

            I miss everyone too. I have been so busy with my husband recovering from surgery and getting back to work after the wedding. Hope all is well.

              Bev - I hope that your husband is well!


              I was thinking the other day about myself (yes this may sound silly). Anyway, I was thinking that some days, I don't even feel like I am curvy, overweight, fat, whatever you want to call it and then all of a sudden it just hits you (like you see a picture of yourself) BAM, you are that freakin' big, curvy, whatever. It happened to me the other day and it totally got to me. I was just wondering if anyone else felt like that or am I just the crazy one?! lol I mean for the most part, I have accepted myself for who I am, what I look like but damn, some days I just don't want to be fat anymore! lol How come I am the one that has to be fat? I honestly don't think it's because of what I eat. We always ate healthy growing up and I eat healthy now even though sometimes I do eat the pizza/chocolate/junk but who doesn't!?! That's all I really wanted to say (although I'm not really sure why! lol) Anyway, I'm done with my little rant right now!

                Funny Lisa Like you say some days you feel totally at peace with your body and actually feel good about yourself, and then you catch yourself in a mirror or see a picture and you go WTF is that me?

                I had a fitting for my dress a few weeks ago and I felt so awesome in the dress and was smiling ear to ear, my girlfriend took a picture of me. We come home and she emails me the picture, I open the email and nearly start to cry.... I felt I looked like crap in the dress and not to mention a hippo.

                I try hard to focus on who I am as a person and not my body type.... I think, this wonderful guy loves every inch of me and what more could i ask for? Don't get down over it hun.... Chin up... beauty isn't a size.

                  I agree 100%. Beauty isn't a size, its a state of mind. Obviously your FI thinks you are stunning which is all that really matters!

                    oh I know beauty isn't a size and honestly most of the time I don't even think about myself that way. It's just funny how it hits you sometimes! We're all beautiful!!

                      I know what you mean. I don't "feel" like a fat person in my day to day life.. but then I walk by a mirror or see my reflection in a glass window or something and get totally grossed out with myself.... It's like I am in "denial" a lot and then it hits me, I am fat. I get depressed and start to hate myself and usually sabotage my diet. I have been struggling with this most of my life...
                      I am on a diet now and I have been able to squelch that "inner hater" and stick to it. I hope I can do it permanently. In the past I get almost to my goal and then "bam".. I mess it up for myself..... I am really trying to make changes so that it doesn't happen this time.....
