Fat Dream (Meaning and Symbolism)

If you have a fat dream or dream of being or growing bigger, it is a symbol of growth, expansion, and abundance in different areas of your life. However, you must consider other elements in your dream to get a clear picture. Read on to learn everything you need to know about your fat dream.


Is a fat dream bad?

No, having a fat dream is not bad. There are many reasons why you could be dreaming of fat.

Sometimes if you are trying to manifest weight loss or have internal worries about your weight, the dream could simply be a manifestation of your current worries.

But if you are not currently thinking about your weight and you have a fat dream, the meaning is usually a positive sign that you are in a position of growth, expansion, and abundance in other areas of your life.


Seeing yourself fat in a dream

If you have a dream of seeing yourself fat (and you are not currently experiencing weight anxiety in your regular waking life), it means that you are feeling good about growth in other areas of your life.

This could be in your career, finances, or personal relationships.

You are confident and things are going well for you. The dream could also be a metaphor for “being in the comfort zone.”

You are comfortable with where you are in life and don’t feel the need to make any big changes.

This is a great dream to have!


Dream of being fat-shamed

If you dream of being fat-shamed, your subconscious mind is telling you that you are uncomfortable with growth or expansion on some level.

Perhaps you want to excel in life, but the fear of what others may think of you could be holding you back from success.

For example, let’s say you’re having financial difficulty and you want to find a way to manifest more money into your life.

Well, if on a subconscious level you are afraid that people in your life will treat you differently if you start to earn more money than them, this can prevent you from success.

So, if you have a dream of being fat-shamed, it’s important to ask yourself what area of your life you are afraid of expanding in.


Dream about a fat baby

To dream of a baby is usually about your need for care, nurturing, and support.

So, to dream of a fat baby symbolizes your need for these things in your life.

It could be that you feel like you’re not being supported in your current situation or that you’re not being nurtured the way you need to be.

This dream could also be a metaphor for “needing more attention.”

You may feel like you’re not getting enough attention from the people in your life and you crave more love and affection.

If the fat baby is happy, it means that you realize your need for this and you are on your way to having your needs met over time.

If the fat baby is unhappy, it means that you are not getting your needs met and you may need to take some action to get the attention or care that you crave.

To dream about a fat baby girl means that you need to nurture your typically feminine qualities and boost that energy in your life. 

Likewise, to dream about a fat baby boy means that you need to nurture your typically masculine qualities and boost that energy. 

Remember, every person whether biologically male or female has both masculine and feminine personality traits.


Dream about a fat animal

Animals in dreams usually symbolize some aspect of your personality.

For example, a lion could represent your courageousness or a snake could represent your devious side.

So, to dream of a fat animal usually symbolizes an aspect of your personality that is excessive in some way.

For example, if you dream of a fat dog, it could mean that you are feeling loyal to someone or something to a fault.

Or, if you dream of a fat cat, it could mean that you are feeling a bit too independent and need to learn how to rely on others more.

Identifying the animal in your dream and your relationship to it can give you clues as to what area of your personality needs to be balanced out.


What does it mean to dream of growing fat?

If you dream of growing fat, it means that something in your life is expanding or increasing.

This could be good news, such as a promotion at work or a new addition to your family.

Or, it could be something that you perceive as negative, such as drama in your life.

The thing here is to pay attention to other signs and symbols in your dream that will give you clues.


Being called fat dream meaning

If you’re being called fat in your dream, it means that you are putting lots of value on what others think of you.

You could be allowing the opinions of others to dictate how you feel about yourself.

This is not a healthy way to live and can lead to a lot of self-doubt and insecurity.

Your subconscious mind wants to protect you from this by showing you this dream.

The best thing to do is to learn to love and accept yourself for who you are, regardless of what others think.


Dreaming of eating fat

To dream of eating fat usually signifies that you are craving and desiring abundance in your life.

You may be feeling like you’re not getting enough of what you want or that you’re not reaching your full potential.

This is a sign that you need to make some changes in your life to manifest more of what you want.

It could be that you need to take some risks or make some bold moves.

Or, it could be that you need to spend more time focusing on your goals and what you want to achieve.

Whatever it is, this dream is nudging you in the right direction.
