Are you in the 300 club?

The 300 club is for Plus sized, curvy etc. women that weigh over 300 lbs.

  • In the 300 club there is no room to criticize because we all are already our biggest critics
  • In the 300 Club it is often difficult to find the right places – hummin Urban cowboy theme music-
  • In the 300 club it is even more difficult to find nice clothes that fit appropriately and look age appropriate!!!!
  • In the 300 club going to certain places to have fun and recreation is almost handicapping because the seats are not made for our hips and thighs!
  • In the 300 club everybody says our health is in dire straights and inquires if we want to be around for our families…dumb questions!!
  • In the 300 club our situations usually didn’t happen overnight but people expect us to work overnight to be who they think we should be- in a smaller frame!
  • In the 300 club 300 is not just a number its a scarlet letter er..number and  if you dont or never have worn it you dont understand it.
  • In the 300 club we walk slower because we have at least 200 more pounds to carry than the average chic..instead of staring help a sista out!!!!
  • In the 300 club our minds work out more than our bodies
  • In the 300 club membership is not free and to get out it costs you at least one pound….
  • over the last year and a half I went from being a member of the 300 club to being a member of the yoyo club.  Membership to the yoyo club is even more expensive because you dont know what size clothes to get!!!! Don’t join the yoyo club.  In the facebo0k picture above, I was at my highest weight with the shades on and my lowest with the flower.  I still have clothes form both eras.. I have learned over the years that I am enough and i dont have to prove anything to others.  So whether you are in the 300 club or the 100 club, the yoyo club or the fit club, it doesn’t matter what you do if you are doing it for others- it will NEVER be enough!!! Do it for you and realize that you are enough, be healthy and be happy!!!
