Others can be lazy as sin and never gain a pound. That is life.

So one picture of her eating a corn dog says it all? What if it were a tofu corndog? What about a picture of Jennifer Aniston eating a corn dog? What would that say about her diet? That she likes corn dogs is all. Funny how the slim never are criticized for what or how they eat.
I dunno if I buy this ..99 percent of a time the reason a person is overweight is because they are OVEREATING. You can work out till the cows come home and it won't do diddly if you are packing in excess calories. I have been over weight and at optimum weight in the last 10 years and I can directly attribute being overweight to being lazy about eating habits. That said being a few pounds overweight is no big deal but if you want to shed the weight ..most can. Yes, for some its harder but unless you have a physical malady its all about what you stuff in your mouth ..sorry.

In my pre-married days I would have tried to date her.

Exactly. She is pretty, but that is irrelevant. She is very fat. As an aside, I can't stand the term "plus size." Fat is fat and unhealthy as well. Fat is not plus size, curvaceous, voluptuous, curvy, or anything else. PC terms do not do the world any good, and certainly do not encourage fat people to lose the weight, improve their health, and maybe even save their own lives.

She's one of those lucky plus size girls that doesn't gain weight in her face. I'd bet a lot more people would vote 'obese' rather than 'beautiful' if she had a double chin.

Face is cute and I have been attracted to some what bigger girls, but she is pushing it. But not my business and to each their own.

Give me the Victoria's Secret models any day.

Gorgeous face, but really, really unhealthy body. She is carrying way more than an extra few pounds of chub. I'd hate to see this poor girl die from diabetes or a heart attack.

She is both beautiful and obese.

I don't mind seeing "chunky" models because I am chunky myself, but SHE is obese. Sure she's pretty, but she is obese.

Beauty is relative. She's certainly obese though.
