They understand me because they are the many facets of me.It is the best reality show I have ever seen, and coming from me that's saying a lot! As one of the girls said, it doesn't matter what other people think of you, it matters what YOU think of YOU.
My mama always told me to never let anyone, especially a man, disrespect me, but if you aren't strong minded (or even if you're just lonely), it's so easy to fall into the trap of accepting anything and losing everything just to have someone who you love always around.I just find A lot of the Lifetime produced content, especially, is over-sexual and stereotypical, especially when you consider it's trademarked statement "Network for Women". I was bored out of my wits and just happened to pass it up, but I'm so glad I did.I'll admit, during the first episode I had my apprehensions, I was almost ready to write it off but I kept coming back every Wednesday and it delivered more than my expectations.A few years ago the TV channel NUVO had a show called 'Curvy Girls' and while it was sort of entertaining, it was about plus size models which was unrealistic, for me at least. I might not be on TV but most of the ladies are who I am.They have the same problems that I do such as confidence, fitting in restaurant booths, trying to dress cute/sexy with limited clothing options, going out to clubs, and all in all loving who you are.Of course, I know there are big girls everywhere, they're out dating and having fun but it was so good and reassuring to see it on TV.And unlike Black people, all big girls don't know each other.big/fat/curvy girl issues, the main one being dating.There are not many shows at all about what it's like to be a real-life curvy girl.Also, the general consensus is that fatness equates laziness, but it takes a SHITLOAD of work to be a bigger person, with everything we have to go the extra mile or think two steps ahead of the average person.BWBL showed that everyday struggle that bigger girls face, it made me feel less weird to see these women on TV expressing what it's like.
