In my research into BDD, I found this amazing link to people who are trying hell hard to get a bigger belly
Check these posts from wannabe fat belly people on that website:
"I think that i don’t really know why I want to have a big belly: I think that I want this for having a very big and soft belly to touch and play and, I think, for having a sense of fullness and thoroughness"
"I can’t wait until my little belly turns into a big belly! Big bellies are so cute and nice. Plus, they look so hot in tight dresses! I bought a dress from Torrid the other day, and it is still really loose in the belly area, I hope I can grow into it soon! "
I was amazed at first but then in thinking about it I realised that not everybody is embarrassed to be toting a big belly.
Some people have reverse BDD... they look in the mirror and think they looking real good with their big self.
In fact, Carnival Monday and Tuesday will be testament to the fact that in Trinidad we have several people who don't give a damn that their stomach is hanging out and over.
In many ways I have to admire people who can wear the bikini mas and jump up all over the streets of POS with everything hanging out. I especially have to admire Denise Belfon with her big saucy self just doing her thing on stage... bicycle wine, tricycle wine.... all kinda wine. And she could go down lower than a lot of small, slim, supposedly fit people.
Anybody saw the "washing machine" performance on Synergy Soca Star? Spin cycle, spin cycle, spin cycle... If you didn't see it you miss out half yuh life. That is self-confidence.
The other reality is that there is a different flavor of kool aid for different people. Some like grape, some like cherry and some like lemonade. By that statement I am referring to the fact that some guys just love a "fat thing".
"Dem small girls too bony, nothing to hold on to..." For them there is nothing better than holding onto a big girl... more to love as they say. Sometimes it is funny to see a thin "magga" guy with an enormous woman and you could see the love in his eyes. There are several online websites that target those who love fat women and the forums discuss how much folds of hanging skin and dimples there are on their favorite model. Cellulite is a bonus.
Some women have also admitted to falling for a guy with a big "buddah" pot belly. I wonder if they like to rub it for good luck. And they find you fast and out of place to ask if they have to lift the belly to find "it".
Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
