Somewhat surprisingly, I received an immediate response from Target. It was signed by a specific person and seems to be a unique letter, so maybe I can actually help make a tiny change in the right direction for other plumpies, like me. Come on, Target! <waves pompoms>
As an aside, my Dad told me yesterday that I needed to lose my "flab" for health reasons. None of my medical conditions are weight related, but he is still right. However, the fact that what he said was true didn't make it hurt any less. Why does being told that I am fat carry such tremendous emotional weight?
Target's letter follows.
