"I feel FAT!" Feeling fat? Why #fatisnotafeeling

Hello all!

Whew! It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been really busy with work and very sick, but now that things have calmed down and I'm on the mend, I finally made a video on a topic I've been wanting to address for a long, long time.

Ever catch yourself saying, "I feel FAT"? I do. I've also noticed that many of my friends and social colleagues have been saying it more lately, too. I've even noticed people saying it when I'm in public, like in the dressing rooms at Ross or on the sidewalks of my neighborhood during Sunday brunch hours. 

But I try to never let that statement go by without probing a little deeper. Here's why:

And another thing I've noticed: nobody ever says "I feel fat" in a positive way.  Which makes me really concerned about the message we're sending our kids about the "f-word". Remember back in the 90s when we spelled it with a "ph" and it meant something that was sooooo cool? I vote we bring that back.

So what do YOU actually mean when you say "I feel fat"? 

Wishing you love (and a beautiful Memorial Day!) with extra cheese-

Hey sister, so glad your back. I been waiting for my weekend Margo fix. Lol. I listen to you on the weekend while I'm planning out some meals for the week. If there isn't a new video, I will find an old one and listen. Does that sound like addiction. �� I heard about the giveaway and I'm wondering how can I win? I'm a subscriber through you tube. Does that qualify me? Let me know. Keep up the great work and thanks again for keeping the volume up. Sometime I go to listen to someone on you tube and a lot of the time, I can't even hear them. Bye Margo.
