    I love it. It all looks so good but you know you wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

    Good for losing 21lb.

    Don't worry, there are innumerable amounts of fat/unabled bodied people in UK. Infact when I'm out labouring during the day, out of shape people walking past tend to out number young, fit and in-shape people by alot.

    People so fat that they need mobility scooters even though they look about 30 are the worst I see. These are rare but they actually exist which pains my heart.

    You probably will be treated differently. Whilst there are alot of fat people in the U.K., I haven't come across many fat students, so those that are stick out like a sore thumb. Keep loosing the weight, you are good looking.

    Don't worry, there are plenty of overweight people here. And most people have better things to do than run around shouting 'FATTY!' anyway :p:.

    I think people tend to alienate you more for being obese regardless of the country (Well, Japan aside). I doubt people will go out of their way to be mean unless you spark something off with them.

    But when people hear your accent they'll probably add that to the fact that you're fat as a part of some insult. To be honest i'd be surprised if you went through the whole of university without somebody making some 'fat American' comment.

    You shouldn't lose weight to fit in anyways, you should do it for yourself.

    You might get some fat American jokes but no one at uni is going to bully you for it!

    There are a lot of overweight people here too and most people have better things to do than insult people because of their weight but you get people like that in every country.
