I'm not fat, I'm fluffy!

Happy New Year!

Thanks to all my readers/followers, this year has been a great adventure blogging.  I look forward to 2010,  I have many ideas to better this blog, and sharing with all of you.  I have gained so much inspiration from reading other blogs and connecting with other bloggers via Twitter & Facebook.  Let's all keep it up and truly make 2010 a plus year!  Have a great New Year, be safe & don't forget its good to laugh at your self sometimes. Live, Love & Laugh! Those are my words to live by in 2010

I have to share this story with you, since we are talking about laughter.  Many years ago when my niece was about 7 or 8 yrs old, she said something so funny, but yet so touching to me.  All my family & I were at a 4th of July BBQ, it was a hot summer day in LA. All the kids were in the pool, being the fun lovable person, I jumped in with all the kids.  I normally don't like to go into the pool, because I am overweight and embarrassed to wear a bathing suit in front of lots of people. It was so hot, that I said screw it and jumped in and was having lots of fun splashing around with the kids. My niece came up to me & gave me the biggest hug, she said to me "Tia, I like hugging you, because you are FLUFFY!" I started laughing so hard that I started to cry, I thought it was the funniest, sweetest things she ever said to me.  It made me realized it was OK to be overweight, because my family & friend accepted me the way I am. My nieces & nephews all loved to hug & cuddle with me because I was fluffy. My niece just had just figured out a cute way to say it.  Since that day its been a joke between my niece and my family & I, we are not fat we are fluffy!

Today on the Internet I came across this t-shirt which reminded me of this story, I am totally going to buy it and rock it with pride!

  1. Hi my name is claire and my fiance sent me too this site to read your message, "I'm not Fat, I'm Fluffy" has been my moto for the last 12 years now. One of my friends when i was younger saw a t-shirt with a Fluffy Cat on it which said "I'm not Fat, I'm Fluffy on it. she then decided that fit me to a tee not only cause i'm overweight but because my personality is fluffy. Now 12 years later my nieces and nephews, friends, and many others know me as Aunty Fluff, even my best friends little girl who is only 18 months old calls me Fla because she can't pronounce in yet. thank you for sharing your story, from a Fellow Fluff :)
