Well i have to say something about the increasing rate of obesity in the Unites States. As a person who is debatably overweight, I know firsthand the downside of having some meat on your bones. You can't always find clothes in your size, or they fit you differently than how they would on someone with less....meat. For example, i recently went into Hollister, which is a new store at my city mall, and was shocked to see that the XL was pretty much a medium as compared to other store sizes. I still tried to squeeze into a cute shirt, and nearly started crying in the dressing room. Every curve was pronounced, and stuck out. I took off the shirt before I became even more upset, but that experience is still annoying to me. It was, frankly, all too familiar for me. I hate how I can't wear the same clothes, or get the same guys as other skinnier girls. It sucks, and it needs to stop. NOW.
