Summary
Americans do not take kindly to fat people. The media feeds us images of emaciated models, actors and actresses. Yet in The Size of It, four young women of considerable weight proudly proclaim that they can feel attractive and find love despite the disapproval of society (and their mothers!). Dana, expresses her joie de vivre in belly dancing. Lisa describes how she came to terms with her weight by making a conscious decision to accept her size. She has to explain to her mystified mother that she loves herself in all her girth. She courageously invites her e-mail boyfriend to meet her. We see him catch his first approving glimpse of her at the airport. It seems to be love at first sight and they eventually settle in together. While Janine is comfortable with her weight, she does have health concerns and considers surgery to reduce her size. As a single mother she worries that her weight might effect her longevity. Teresa believes no one will love her if she doesn't love herself. With her over-the-top sense of humor she has created a successful stand-up comedy act spoofing her corpulence. In this refreshing film, all four women express positive attitudes about their over-sized bodies in a delightfully forthright manner. Excerpts featured on the Oprah Winfrey show
