I am not saying we should be promoting obesity, or celebrating it. And all 222 lbs of me knows that I need to weigh less in order to maintain my long term health and my current weight is not ideal. But this fat girl has excellent blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. My oxygen efficiency is in the mid-athletic range. I run. I do strength training. I do cardio.
A good day at the gym looks like this for me:
And even the average day at the gym looks like this:

|My lunch from one day last week. Leftovers from the night before-Pork chop, asparagus and brussel sprouts.|
|Part of my dinner from the other night...veggie kabobs on the grill|
|Chocolate, peanut butter "Ice cream" made from frozen bananas, peanut butter and cocoa.|
And I do all of it looking like this.
And to give some perspective, here's me 12 lbs heavier. Photos on the left are the "before". Photos on the right are 4 months later. I'm less fat now that I was before, but still healthy in both pictures.
