I first heard this on a pro-anorexia site way back when I first got the internet. I thought it was sad.
I heard it next at a Weight Watchers event, where the leader closed by saying, “Nothing tastes as good…” and the 80+ people in the room responded with, “as skinny feels!” I sat around and felt very uncomfortable.
I just ran into it yet again in the back of my 3-month tracker journal I got with my new PointsPlus kit. Now I’m pissed.
What is Weight Watchers thinking, exactly? This might be the only thing I’ve heard from them that I positively hate. I can’t get over it.
We’re not going to be automatically happy and feeling good when we’re skinny. I’m absolutely sickened that they try to make people think that they will be. I know some perfectly miserable skinny people. Maybe they should know this. I bet all of their food tastes horrible.
(Also, whoever came up with this saying has obviously never eaten an entire stromboli in one sitting. That tastes and feels better than absolutely anything.)
I’m fat and very happy. I’m downright jolly. I feel awesome even though I weigh nearly 300lbs. Fuck you, Weight Watchers, for trying to insinuate that I should feel differently.
