By no means am I a small person. I'm not even "a bit big". If you're going to be a boring medically inaccurate fart, then you could look at my BMI and class me as "morbidly obese". Simply put: I'm fat. (And that is not a bad word!). This isn't the first time I've discussed my … Continue reading The Fat Girl’s Guide to Disneyland Paris!
