“people now see overweight as normal…” “people now see overweight as normal” Like who? Overweight is the antithesis of normal. It’s not accepted to be overweight and not since the 30s and 40s has it been okay for women to be voluptuous and curvy. From my personal experience I’d have to say when I weighed 110 pounds I felt a lot more comfortable in my skin than I do now at 130. Sure I got the “do you ever eat?” comments but I think I’d rather get those any day than to look down and see fat rolls hanging over my jeans when I sit down.
