4717ArticleDalek227Oh I love this so much!! I especially relate to the comments your friends dad made. People don’t think they sound as bad as they really do LOL I’m still adding parts to my article because it’s almost like therapy. What I find hard is when I’m writing, I’m thinking in the mindset of how I felt back then, but I don’t want people to think my childhood was all crap because it wasn’t. So I feel like I have to throw in a reminder here and there that it wasn’t total crap it just wasn’t the normal skinny kid childhood hahaBeing The Fat KidDec 15, 2018View

4714ArticleHoju KoolanderGreat read. I wrote an article from the male perspective of a fat kid during this same era a few years back, so it was interesting to read your experiences. Thanks for adding your voice to the site.Being An 80's and 90's Fat Kid Part 1 Dec 15, 2018View

4712ArticleBenjanimei had a couple of fairly plump friends in the past and they were pretty humble and fun to be around, sorry to hear that you had a rough experience about your weight. but i'm sure you have friends who value you no matter what now :)Being An 80's and 90's Fat Kid Part 1 Dec 14, 2018View
4711ArticleDalek227Thank you for the comment! I absolutely agree that it's made us more compassionate adults. At the time it sure did feel like a big deal but as an adult now, seeing the severe bullying that teenagers face today, it's nothing compared to that. However writing this is kind of like therapy. I don't dwell on the bullying, it was only a little blip in my life. However when I'm reminded of it I like to gab about it haha!Being An 80's and 90's Fat Kid Part 1 Dec 14, 2018View
4710ArticleVaporman87Thank you for letting us into your world circa the '80s and '90s and being open about some of the difficulties you experienced. I know there are a few here with similar experiences, and like you they still cherish their youths despite the troubles. I often wish I could change my own behavior towards larger kids in school. I wasn't kind, even though it was all muttered under my breath or to friends. I'd like to go back in time and smack myself in the head... for a lot of things really. But, to a certain degree, I can empathize. I was the shortest kid in my entire school for a long time. And my high school included everybody from 7th to Senior. That meant you had 7th graders constantly available to pick on if you were in the higher grades. I took my share of insults in stride. Still, it's not the same as what you and others had to endure. Hopefully these things help us to become better people in our adult lives. I know that has been the case for me. As a husband, father, and business owner... all those experiences helped to shape who I am now and how I interact with others, be it friends, family, or just customers. I'm guessing you feel the same.Being An 80's and 90's Fat Kid Part 1 Dec 13, 2018View
4709ArticleBenjanimei had to wait a year later to get it, my stepdad wasn't too happy with my response to the gift so i had to straighten up my behavior for a while and start doing new chores around the house to earn it. the only downside was that it was the "greatest hits" version, which removed the neat holographic game cover which i liked but looking back doesn't bother me anymore.The Christmas of '97Dec 13, 2018View
4708ArticleVaporman87Barbara and the Mandrell sisters were pretty big in the early to mid '80s. They had a variety type show on television that I can recall. That "Handwarmin'" ad just doesn't capture the spirit of Christmas like the "On The Pond" one. Still, it's a valiant effort.5 More 80s Christmas CommercialsDec 13, 2018View
