So glad I'm not alone with this!
Just had a check on facebook and the comments on a picture which set me off have now been removed.
I have a so called 'friend' (her word, not mine) who constantly tells me to eat more because I'm too thin and don't eat apparently. When I told her that I'm just thin naturally, my mum is the same, I go to the gym and eat healthily and she has never seen me eat given that I only see her in lectures she told me that's nonsense and I can't admit to being too thin?! She suggested a good weight for me would be 12 stone.. somehow at 5 foot 2 I don't agree!
I do get annoyed with people saying it's healthy when they're overweight. It seems that all of the health conditions aggravated by being overweight are ignored because if you lose weight you will end up anorexic and die.... (or have I been reading the daily mail too much again :P)
Yeah I have a morbidly obese aunt who says things like that, but I couldn't give a crap and I don't see why anyone else would? Being slim is what society deems beautiful....
"Real women have curves!" they scream while shoving copious amounts of fat down their throats. "You should eat more otherwise you'll never have a proper figure like me! Being stick thin is ridiculous and no man would ever want you since you don't have this. *gestures her arm down her body to show off her lovely curve* Did you know diets never work? I read an important study saying that 95% of diets fail so why are you always starving yourself?! I eat healthy and we're the same size!"
They then waddle away knowing that they've defeated the skinny little brat that they're always encountering. Real women eat proper food after all. Not rabbit food! Who needs lettuce and vegetables when you can have ice cream?
The daily story of a pompous sphere.
I'd never date any woman over size 10 xox
I get fed up with this as well! I'm only 5ft and very petite, usually a size 6 but sometimes an 8. I weigh just over 7 stone and am on the low end of a healthy weight. I've struggled with my weight all my life-I was always underweight (6st9lb) until I went to uni and finally put some weight on! Being as small as I was did have some affects on my health, but having gained a few pounds has stopped them, fortunately. Just because I'm small doesn't mean I'm any less of a woman. I love the size I am and wouldn't change it at all. I still get a lot of attention from guys, which is always a plus :P
It's always the women who failed at losing fat who bang on about this, too thick/weak willed to sort their own eating habits out so they just take a stab at someone else to make themselves feel better.
Nobody else cares.
