Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Fattest Girl in the Room, this is a podcast about being a fat girl in a not so fat-friendly world. I’m your host Tae, plus-size fashion and fat girl lifestyle blogger at Hello Taee.
In this, the very first SOAPBOX episode of The Fattest Girl in the Room, I’m talking about what it truly means to be the fattest girl in the room. I’m going to talk about who I am (a fat girl who loves fashion, beauty and pop culture), what I look like (hazel eyes, long brown curly hair) what size of clothes I wear (size 18, XXL or 3XL depending on the clothes) and, yes, how much I weight (approx. 280lbs). I am not ashamed of who I am except for those days that I am, and those are the days that I feel like the fattest girl in the room.
I created this podcast for those days that I feel like the fattest girl in the room. The ones where I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb, look incredibly unattractive or simply feel like a flat blob (seriously all the time). I made it because I know that I am not the ONLY person who feels like this because we are constantly being bombarded with images and ideas of “the perfect body” or “the perfect women” or “the perfect [literally insert ANYTHING here]. But life isn’t perfect, our bodies aren’t perfect and, you know what, they aren’t supposed to be? This world is filled with perfectly imperfect humans and it’s the most beautiful thing, and I am so sick of constantly feeling like my imperfect body is worth less than anyone else’s because it’s fat.
So, in this episode, I’m sharing one of the first times I remember feeling like the fattest girl in the room and how even if you’re listening to this podcast and you clearly aren’t fat, it doesn’t mean that you never have that same feeling. Being the fattest girl in the room is a universal feeling. For me it takes the form of being fat, but for you it might be the fact that you’re too skinny, your nose is too big, you have eyes that are too far apart… seriously, whatever your thing is, we’re all in it together.
So, this is the podcast where we talk about fat girl problems, being positive about our bodies regardless of what they look like, appreciating what we have, taking care of our well being, living our dreams and going after the things that we truly want.
