I wanted people to see MY humanness. I was just beginning to find the realization that my fat didn't define me, yet it was a part of who I am.......just not everything!


I love this!
I am a big person, too. Unfortunately most people see obese people like "ugly, stupid, greedy, trash" without trying to look at the person inside. It hurts like crazy.
The way Darlene is, the example she is for people like her, is an inspiration for me!
I was given the 'weird' badge but I think everybody's weird and that's the key to it. We should celebrate our individuality, not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.

Darlene I think you certainly put the humaneness into Momma superbly well. I like what you said about changing your view of the world too. Personally, I don't think it's a very easy thing to do and I admire you for that.
"Luck... inspiration... both only really happen to you when you empty your heart of ambition, purpose, and plan; when you give yourself, completely, to the golden, fate-filled moment."
