Some search terms that made me roll my eyes:

  1. mesh on tongue
  2. tongue mesh (this isn’t over yet?)

Some search terms that made me smile:

  1. living 400lbs  (people are googling me specifically!)
  2. bbw yoga photo
  3. blogs on fat acceptance
  4. lingerie for women who weigh 400 pounds
  5. exercise for fat chicks

I als0 see search terms like “day in the life of morbidly obese”, which is both a good and a bad.  I mean, yes, I have the “Day in the Life” series about my day, so obviously I think it’s valuable.  But someone can be morbidly obese and weigh half of what I do.  Why is that something people are googling over?

  1. I think they’re searching that phrase for the same reason people watch garbage like The Biggest Loser etc — they aren’t hoping to be inspired or to learn anything, they’re hoping to reinforce their stereotyped assumptions about fat people while at the same time getting a good laugh at the fatty thinking it’s a person.
