Though Maggie and Olivia have been best friends since their -fattie+ grade school years, Olivia+s since gone the gastric-bypass surgery route, in hopes of obtaining the elusive size two, the holy grail for fat girls everywhere. So now Olivia+s thin, blonde, and betrothed, and Maggie+s the fat bridesmaid. Ain+t life grand?
