You Asked, We'll tell...sort of

So, because all of you are fabulous people, I'll let you guys in on our little weight secret. I'm not going to give you the exactly numbers...but I will tell you that we're both 5'7 and both between 250 and 300lbs.

As for the person who left this comment:

"My guess is 180 and 165. I am always entertained by your writing but you don't sound like you really know fat. I am at 255. I know fat. "

1. Lindsey and I laughed out loud at that!
2. We KNOW fat...we live fat...we ARE fat... fatter than you at least
3. If we weighed 165, do any of you think we'd have a blog about fatness? No, we'd be too busy shopping in normal girl stores.

So, I hope that answered everyones questions...if not, we'll we're sorry, (but not really).

What a relief. Thank you.

so, where the heck does the 'is 310lbs considered fat?' tagline come from?

Ducky said...

Thank you!!

Beth said...

Yeah, it took me a while to realize the "is 310 lbs considered fat?" stuff is actually part of your RSS template that gets appended to every post. Since it doesn't actually begin on a new line, it just runs into the end of each post and confused the heck out of me. Anyways, great blog!

Finally, I can sleep at night.

The Magnet said...

That puts you, combined, between 500 and 600 pounds... hey, I was right! Go me!

And thank you both for sharing. It's very kind and brave of you.

Michelle said...

Does the person who guessed the closest get some sort of prize? I think that's only fair.

cherree said...

I had said 250 and 280, yay! pretty close (without the rss feed hint). I'm so proud, I think I'm going to make myself a t-shirt that says: "I was this |--| close to guessing Lindsey & Emily's weight!"

How about a picture to go with the picture I have in my mind's eye?

Thanks for telling your weight. I feel less alone in the world.

At least y'all are on the tall-ish side - 5'7 is an inch above what they say is "average." Try weighing around that much and measuring only 5'3.

I still love your site - however, you are not as "fat" as you guys seem to think you are...

Thanks for sharing (kind of) and making us, once again, feel not-so-alone in this world of Barbies.

I wish people would quit trying to define what fat is for someone else. I'm referring to the guy who said you don't know fat. You probably wouldn't consider me as overweight, but I do. Even if you're a small size - if you gain 30 pounds and can't fit into your clothes, you feel fat.

jae said...

If I were as tall as you, the weight wouldn't seem that much. By the way, what is a brown band? Do I have one?

Michelle said...

A brown band is one of those Lance Armstrong type bracelets that are so ubiquitous. It is a poopy shade of brown and instead of "Live Strong" it says "Live Fat".

I know I'm way late on this but I just found the blog and had to post. Fat is a social concept. In our society pretty much all women are considered fat. You open your mouth and speak your mind and someone will call you a bitch. Second best insult? Fat bitch. Even women that aren't fat think they are. I bet most models think they're fat. That's why diet soda, cocaine and colon blow sell so well in hollywood (ok, cocaine's also addictive, but you get my point).
So, if the two of you fabulously funny women weren't fat, you were just pretending to be for some reason I can't think of, would your worth be less on this blog? To that foolish man who emailed you? Would you not be funny or have a right to speak on the topic of fat?
I'm fat (technically, obese), and I'd still listen to you because you're funny and because you are speaking. 1. you're women who are saying something meaningful which is not encouraged in our society. 2. you're saying something meaningful about fat, a taboo subject. 3. You're funny. That's 3 reasons for me to listen to you.
So you could have the BMI of a triathlete and I'd still listen.
Go on with your bad selves.

Late comment as well ..

3. If we weighed 165, do any of you think we'd have a blog about fatness? No, we'd be too busy shopping in normal girl stores.

I'm 165 and I don't or can't shop in normal girl stores! Although it may be a cultural thing since everyone here are teeny tiny little things.

I weigh 170 and can only shop for my pants in normal girl stores, though sometimes even then it's hard. Not to mention embarassing. Tops I can forget about unless it's an XL t-shirt. Nice, dressy tops at the normal girl store do NOT fit my chest or tops of my fat girl arms. They look gross. But when I go to Torrid (all Lane Bryant clothes are like tents on me. Plus their clothes are VERY old lady) sometimes even the 0's are too big.

Yeah, it's hard finding clothes when you're big...But you can find them. I can hardly ever find good looking clothes because I'm in between.
