Diary of a Fat Woman

Laura, a 32 years old pretty young divorcee with two children had a different solution. She came to the association to meet someone, but because she was 100 pounds overweight no guy gave her a second look. She served on the board of directors and she went to the activities with her kids. She was stronger than I was at the time. She went on a diet and lost the weight. Suddenly all the men took notice. She rejected them all and told them straight, “You didn’t want me when I was fat, so I don’t want you now.

I couldn’t lose the weight, I tried diet after diet but I just could not keep to it. I got cravings so bad that I couldn’t sleep. All my emotions were tied to food, I ate when I was hungry, when I was happy, when I was bored and the more rejections I got from men the more I ate. I ate when I was stressed out and I ate when I was depressed; food had always been the silent but deadly comforter.

There were the pop psychologists in the association who felt that I was so big because subconsciously I wanted to distance myself from men. They were so wrong. I had wants and needs as a young divorcee just like anyone else. This seemed to surprise some of the men when I told them I was looking for a boyfriend. . A few of them thought that I was just a good person who devoted myself to the association to make other people happy. They didn’t realize I had needs of my own.
