La Presse's website reproduced a France-Presse article about a 282-lb German man who was condemned to 5 years in jail for killing his wife by sitting on her after they fought over her playing her favorite song on the computer. He apparently sat on her for 2 minutes and broke 18 ribs of hers, which caused her death a month later. She was about half his weight.

What really shocked me with this article is the image chosen (by La Presse or by France-Press? I don't know. Since Cyberpresse is the only French-speaking Web media outlet to have picked the story, who knows...). It shows the butt of a very fat man sitting on a folding chair -- the kind of pic that the media often use to decry the "obesity epidemic"... *sigh*

Fashion and style is NOT about one size fits all. Truthfully it's about loving yourself, being healthy and knowing what works for you. Dont fall into the "Media" idea of what is Beauty, know that YOU as a Human and Individual are SEXY and Beautiful! --- http://www.plusmingle.com
