Fat Is As Fat Does

2004a0006p1mdI've had this theory - Fat is All Relative - but have always had trouble describing it in a way that someone can really get the meaning and nuances that I'd like to convey. Even if I can't describe it theoretically, I can show examples of what happens with this attitude.

For example, have you ever seen pictures of yourself in your teens or twenties - a time when you just knew that you were SO "FAT" - and had your jaw hit the ground when you realized that you were actually "thin." Or when you describe yourself to someone as "huge" or "really overweight" only to see that you're size 12 body was rather small compared to the size 20 that was meeting you. It is all relative, unless you start to clean up your language.

As I said in my Good vs Bad food post, ambiguous language is both useless and harmful. If we train ourselves to start accepting and describing our situations factually ("I wear a size 22" should be a fact just like "I wear glasses" or "I like purple") we not only have a better sense of who we are, unlike when we think of ourselves with the ambiguous "big" or "fat."

I was playing around on the internet and came across "Googlism" which is billed as ""If you want to know if you're an idiot, geek, moron, stupid, funny, classic, workaholic or rich: Use Googlism."

This is what Google thinks about "fat" - if this doesn't prove that "fat" has no definition, nothing will!
