Dave, if that was your girl, I'd say run far, run fast!

I did! I didn't have to run very fast though. She is not too quick on her feet. This is my new girlfriend doing the Ship Shape program.

I agree that people should wear something that FITS (regardless of whether they are fat, skinny, "normal"). I recently went on a cruise where ladies well over 200 pounds were wearing bikinis. If you're comfortable, that's all good-- but dang, leave a little something to the imagination! My uncle came back to the cabin (the same day all the big girls were in their 2 pieces) and said something that made me laugh really loud--
"Go up to the top deck-- it's hog day at the pool!"

Thinking maybe I shouldn't have said that-- don't be offended if you're overweight (I am too) -- just thought it was a funny comment. Sorry.

Brandy,

I, too, am overweight. Did not realize how much until a trip to the drs the other day-I have gained 10 pounds in the last year, but anyway, I thought your uncle's comment was different. I always say I buy my clothes form Omar (the tent maker). I am afraid people may see me sitting in a deck chair on my next cruise and harpoon me! (like a whale!)

You did not offend me in the least!

What I hate is when I am peacefully lying on the beach and a bunch of these Greenpeace whackos try to roll me into the surf!

Wave and cheesewhiz, you are at the wrong gripe. you need to (or at least cheesewhiz needs to) go to the mid-life crisis men in their 40s gripe thread: "I cannot believe everyone doesn't gasp in amazement at how great I am in my 40's, surely they must think I am in my 20s? Oh, I must make sure I post demeaning pictures of fat ugly, or absurd women, so all the readers will then know how perfect I am." you've added so much to this particular gripe chat.

As I responded to this post, I had the brief thought that this might seem too attacking...but then, wait a minute....can't be any worse than all of us being allowed to have a big fat laugh at the picture of the big fat woman that was posted here by the guys that are still trying to retain their youth by making early 20's male frat jokes...we get it, you must be feeling old. inadaquate, or something.....

with all due respect to my fellow human beings.....

Quitecontrary, Yes, you are right I still feel like I am in college. In fact, yesterday I was on spring break. I was at the beach and felt like I was in Bud Light commercial. There were young hot babes everywhere lying in the sun in neon bikinis enhancing their tanning salon tans, with no tattoos while I enjoyed live music and refilling my beer cup every 15 minutes or so. I will be 40 next month but at that moment, I was on spring break again at the same beach and pool bar that I celebrated so many previous spring breaks since the 80's. The only thing different was I have to go to work this AM instead of to class.
