This is a community for overweight guys and girls who don't feel hindered by what society consideres a flaw. You can post pictures here (behind a cut), share stories, advice, links, etc. Feel free to promote other communties, as long as they have something in common with this one. I really want this community to be a happy, safe place for everyone... so I ask you all to refrain from not only bashing other members, but more importantly not to put yourselves down. Sometimes we have good days, sometimes we have bad days, but even if you share a bad experience try to stay focused on the positive. Don't post crap like, "Ohh I am so ugly no one loves me". This is not the place for that.
Debates are fine, but if they start to get personal I will delete the thread and ask you to continue it in your own journals.
Artistic or tasteful nudes are ok, but please don't post a picture of a nude if you are a minor (under the age of 18) or if the picture is of a minor. And please put them behind a cut, explaining that they are not work/parent safe.
If you have any questions, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment in my journal (failingthrice) and I'll answer it as best I can.
A note on a very sensative topic: If you are trying to lose weight, feel free to join and let us know how you are doing. It is ok to ask for and give support here. If you are trying to lose weight to better your health or prevent future problems, more power to you! However, we will not tolerate the "ohhmyGOD!!!1! I am so FAT I need to LIPOSUCTIONIZE my THIGH OFF". No, no, and another no.
