Profiling SSBBWs and their views, thoughts and issues
To help inspire those SSBBWs who haven't yet gotten that they are wonderful, caring, sexy, special people. Someone who is accepting of themselves, who is happy (either alone or with a loving mate), perhaps someone who works or does good things for the community. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do. There is so much negativity on the net towards SSBBWs that we want to show the good side. If you know someone who fits this bill or feel you do and want to get profiled, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

February 2008 - We profiled a special women who found love last year.
A 30-year old named Cecilia
SSBBW Magazine: What is your current weight?
SSBBW: 402 pounds
SSBBW Magazine: What body shape would you say you are?
SSBBW: soft and fluffy
SSBBW Magazine: Have you always been an SSBBW?
SSBBW:Throughout my adult life, yes. I had always been big starting about puberty, and progressively gained in size since then.
SSBBW Magazine: Why would you be an inspiration to other SSBBWs?
SSBBW: I don't think I would be. I am just like everyone else, but I will say that I dont let my size stop me from doing what I want and being who I am.
SSBBW Magazine: What are the joys of being an ssbbw?
SSBBW: I think one of the greatest joys of being an ssbbw is the knowledge we gain from being our size. For example: If someone is your friend, and accepts you as you are and doesn't try to change you, then you know the soul of that person, and you know that they are quality individuals.
SSBBW Magazine: What are the drawbacks?
SSBBW: Any SSBBW can tell you that. Its the constant ridicule and scorn we get from society as a whole. But my question to them is this...why would you want to be ordinary...look back in history...every historical figure you remember, you dont remember for being ordinary and just like everyone else. Each of them were special and unique in their own way.
SSBBW Magazine: What is it like being an SSBBW in today's society?
SSBBW: We are considered outcasts by some of society, but I do see that we are being accepted a little more these days. Its going to take some time, but eventually we will be accepted.
SSBBW Magazine: How would you like to change society's view of SSBBW?
SSBBW: Shouldn't we be listed as goddesses?? In my perfect view, we should all be worshipped for our abundant vitality and figures!!
SSBBW Magazine: What do people/companies serving the public need to do to accommodate ssbbws?
SSBBW: Larger booths at restaurants for larger people, larger bathroom stalls, chairs without arms...to list a few
SSBBW Magazine: Can you recommend such people/services who do?
SSBBW: Not really...it seems to be a widespread epidemic!!
SSBBW Magazine: Do you follow any exercise or healthy eating regimes? If so, what are they?
SSBBW: Not really. In a truck 24/7, its hard to get to the gym. But what I do, is make sure I take vitamins, and I eat as much vegetables and fruit as I can.
SSBBW Magazine: If you could wave a magic wand and be 130 lbs, would you?
SSBBW: Heck NO!! Why would I want to look like everyone else??
SSBBW Magazine: Do you have a favorite overweight actor/actress?
SSBBW: Actor: John Goodman (oh boy is he yummy!!) Actress: Monique or Queen Latifah
SSBBW Magazine: What would you like to say to all the SSBBWs reading this?
SSBBW: Stop worrying about what others think of you, and look at yourself as you should. Each of us (including you!) are exactly who and what you should be. You are a beatiful creation, treat yourself as such!!
SSBBW Magazine: What would you like to say to those just reading this out of curiosity about the SSBBW / FA community?
SSBBW: Please give us the respect we deserve. We are no better or worse than you. In the end, does it really matter what dress size you were??
SSBBW Magazine: Thank you Ceci.
