An example of what not to wear...

No, this is not the girl from the zoo. The zoo girl weighed probably a good 100lbs more then this, but the clothing is similar.

A Day At The Zoo

The weather was beautiful today so we decided to spend the day at the Dallas Zoo. Had we known prior to packing up and heading out that everyone else in the Dallas area had the same idea, we probably would have opted to do something different.

It was gorgeous outside. I would guess the temperature reached the mid 70's. To some that may seem hot. But come on. Those of us who live in Texas live with much hotter temperatures than that. I understand it was great weather for sundresses, tank tops, shorts and capris. I've already mentioned to you that I am fat. I hate looking at my fat jiggly skin so I understand others don't want to look at it either....

To the girl in the hot pink tank top and hoochie shorts - No one wants to look at the cellulite on your butt cheeks. When I saw you today, I am quite sure I threw up a bit in my mouth. Your 8 yr old sister told me she wants her clothes back. Your memory will haunt me for days. Please be tasteful and cover it up! I'm only guessing that you are a size 22, possibly a 24. There is no need for you to wear those itty-bitty shorts and extra low tank top. Thanks to you, when we got home I had to explain to my son what a camel toe is.

I guess because I'm fat I tend to judge other fat people. When I see healthy women or skinny women, I just envy them. But the big girls get the real criticism. If your overweight, you know you are. There's no need to pretend otherwise. For gods sake, please be tasteful and cover it up. I've never understood why sexy, skin showing, skimpy clothing is available in plus sizes. Lingerie is fine- its between you and your partner. But no one wants to see a bunch of fat jiggling around.

This leads me to my next thought. My husband took a picture of me at the zoo. I know I'm fat, but I never realized it was this bad:

Seriously? Why would my hubby ever let me leave the house in a sleeveless shirt? Do you know what he said to me when I asked him how I looked? He said " Honey, you look so sexy. No really, you look great, those jeans look really good on you". LIAR!! I look like a pregnant linebacker.

I had a great time today. But you wouldn't tell by this picture:

This may look like a miniature gorilla, but don't let the photo fool you. He's actually 450lbs and he's got nothing on me. Ha! Okay, not really, I'm big but I' m not there yet. I believe there is always a positive outcome from a negative situation. So in this case, I took horrible pictures, because I'm disgustingly fat. The positive? These make great motivation pictures and the first is a great "before" photo. Now, if I can ever get to the point to take an "after" photo.

It gets worse. If you click on the photo, it will enlarge it and everything in the photo. I will leave it so everyone understands why fat girls should not wear skin revealing clothing.


Welcome to my new blog, Fat Girl In A Little Coat! You may know me from my other blog Review Retreat {}. First let me tell you a little bit about me....

I began Review Retreat several months ago. The purpose of that blog is to share product reviews and giveaways with my readers. Lately, I have been straying off into personal topics. I'm a completely unorganized, organized person. What I really mean is, I am completely unorganized but I like to keep certain things in order. To help make Review Retreat easier to navigate, I want to stay true to the Review/Giveaway theme. I have created Fat Girl in A Little Coat to share more of "me".

Why the title Fat Girl In A Little Coat? Well, If you were a Chris Farley or David Spade fan, you remember the movie Tommy Boy. My favorite scene is when Chris puts on Davids coat and sings "fat guy in a little coat". Not only that, but I gained 90lbs during my pregnancy. I know you are probably saying, "oh it's okay, you just had a baby. You will lose it". My son is actually almost 2 and I am holding on to every ounce of this fat. I'm trying to lose weight and accept the fact that I am fat now but have the ability to change it. Well, that's not going over too well. I'm sure I'm destined to be fat forever. And while I don't wear a little coat, many of my clothes are too small for me now. Hey, it is what it is.

So, grab a cup of coffee and sit back. It's going to be a bumpy ride. Welcome to Fat Girl In A Little Coat!
