havingafatday

"I feel so fat today." "Today is a fat day."

Some times when this is okay to say:

  • When you are experiencing your body and its fat. 

Some times when this is NOT okay to say:

  • When you feel lazy.
  • When you feel like you can’t do anything correctly.
  • When you feel stupid.
  • When you feel ugly. 
  • When you feel useless. 

Those feelings are very valid, and should be recognized.  However, using “fat,” as a synonym for those words/feelings is hurtful and degrading.  In addition, it may stop you from recognizing how you really feel, so you’re not helping yourself either!
