5 reasons why fat people and summer don’t get on

Posted on

I was meant to lose 4 stone by summer…. that’s great and all but we’re on the 14th of June now and I’ve lost 4 pounds. Maybe I meant Australian summer. Anywho – most people love the fact summer is coming… short shorts on, guns out etc. but for the average fatty sun is like Kryptonite. Here are BJOD’s 5 reasons why fat people and sun don’t get on:

1. Beaches make me sad… and I’m not even talking about the Bette Midler version (only gays would get that joke)


The thin person rules on the beach. Their life spent in the gym finally pays off when they go on holiday and hit the sandy shores. For the average fat person however, it’s incredibly how many places you will find sand in 2 months later. I came back from Dubai about 4 months ago and still finding sand in my belly button.

2. Walking 1 minute in the heat gives you sweat patches

In summer I sneeze and I get a sweat patch. It’s literally impossible to go about your daily activities without being wetter than Kinga from BB6’s champagne bottle. Lol.


3. The great BBQ conundrum 

BBQ can actually be a really healthy way of grilling nice and lean chicken with salad on the side. Mmm healthy. However it’s also a good excuse to get the ribs on, get the buns and cheese out, and have curly fucking fries on the side. All the best BBQ food is bad for you… burgers with cheese, coleslaw, pasta salad. Mmm mama’s gettin’ hungry!


You forgot that the shorts you wore last year all had rips down the crotch 

I kid you not this always happens to me! When I was getting ready for Dubai I threw two pairs of shorts in my suitcase only to remember when I got there that I had previously ripped them down the crotch the previous summer. Whoops


5. You hate seeing thin people happy 

There’s nothing that makes me more sick than seeing some hench sexy man walking down the street in a vest. It just makes me eat more.

Tell me guys, what do you hate about summer?

    I actually love summer, despite my weight, and have learned to not care about how I may or may not look (for the most part) when I go to a beach. Instead I concentrate on just enjoying the sun and being able to relax.. while also enjoying some eye-candy LOL Oh, and I have the same problem with shorts.. it’s mid-June and I still haven’t gotten around to buying new shorts, so have been boiling when I leave the house, but it’s all good.

    Sorry, have to disagree with you. I love summer and I love the beach. I don’t give a flying you-know-what about what other people look like. I wear bathing suits to beaches, I wear tank tops and shorts. I do agree with the ripped shorts thing 🙂 since I wear out every pair of pants in the crotch area (sigh) but I can’t wait for summer and don’t want it to leave!!!

    I stopped thinking about the summer as a time to hate. I’m trying to embrace it and get healthier so I can enjoy it without any self hate. If I absolutely had to point to it, I’m very self conscious in a bikini as I know I don’t look any good. 😦

    I loved summer, despite my insecurities holding me back from embarking on the summer adventures I always wanted to. I regret those years of not feeling like I was “good enough” to wear a bikini or go to the beach. Don’t let anything hold you back. You’re a human being, not a cardboard cut-out or plastic doll that needs to look awesome. You’re a person. If somebody doesn’t like how you look, that is their problem.
