Isi artikelIn the context of the contemporary rhetoric of the “obesity epidemic”, the fat body is easily labelled as lazy, self-indulgent and lacking in discipline. Those who become fat often find themselves needing to account for their size in order to refute the suggestion of moral failure that attaches itself easily to the fat body. Drawing on a series of interviews with 35 weight loss surgery patients in England and Scotland, this paper explores the discursive resources and strategies available to those who are, or who have been, very overweight in accounting for their size. The paper argues that the participants drew on three core discourses in order to resist the construction of their fatness as an individual moral failure: (1) the fat-prone body; (2) childhood weight gain; and (3) life events disrupting weight management efforts.
