On Being Fat

People think calling me fat is an insult. Let me assure you dear world, it is not. For I am fat. 
It means I am bigger then most girls, I have higher BMI, and I actually have more fats in my body than most girls. 
And that's just fact. 
It doesn't mean anything else. It doesn't mean I'm ugly, or stupid, or shallow, or unhealthy, or anything else other than fat. 
Like when you say that I'm tall. It is not an insult or a praise, it is just fact. My height is 172cm or about 5'7-5'8, and I'm Indonesian. It means I am taller than almost every girl I know. It doesn't mean I'm pretty, or smart, or healthy, or anything else other than tall. 

I am fat, and I accept that. I don't need to go to extreme diet to lose weight (unless there's money involve, then I might do something crazy). I don't see myself in the mirror and feel repulse by the mighty thunder thighs of mine. Or weep by the sight of my huge ass. or my flabby massive hands. They are what they are. They can function alright. 
Those huge hands managed to grab my phone when some crazy abang2 on a motorcycle tried to stole it. Those thighs managed to walk the unaccountable kilometers of Melbourne's street so I could saved money on transportation. And those ass, they're family heirloom. 

I am fat. And beautiful too!

So yeah, start a revolution, love your body.
