I maybe the exception here but I take it as a compliment when people call me anorexic or too thin. I am short and thin and I like being that way. I used to be fat and remember how awful that was - everyone always went on about me being fat all the time. I remember hiding from people and always avoided going shopping. The only clothes I had were second-hand one's that nobody else wanted as I thought I didn’t deserve new clothes.
Now after years of dieting and trying really hard to become thin I want people to acknowledge that I'm thin. It's so much hard work being thin that I would never take it as an insult if someone told me I need to gain some weight.
It really annoys me when people complain about being too thin and how they eat so much yet can't gain weight. It just sounds like showing off to me but then maybe I don’t understand that it can be a bad thing. I just think you girls don't know how lucky you are.
Most people say I look good the size I am but yes I too have had certain comments which weren't very nice. When I first lost weight I remember my obese friend (she's maybe a size 18-20) told me I look disgusting and she felt sick looking at my bones sticking out. It didn’t bother me at all. If on the other hand someone said I was too fat and that they didn’t want to look at my rolls of fat I think I would have been so devastated and probably would have hid away for months.
Well, I must say I tend to use more creative offensive comments than those anyway, so shut it, cheddarclunge.
i used to have this problem! .. my rather large friend said i looked anorexic but im just naturally petite.
i have put on quite a lot of weight because of the security issues from comments made an d i wish i looked the way i did before. im not fat now but i think i looked beter before. If you are happy with yourself stay the way you are!
It's so rude to make personal comments on somebody's weight. My mum used to have a phase where she'd pull at the waist band on my trousers and say "You're not eating enough, you're too skinny, chunder chunder."
It's obviously because they're jealous.
The worst thing is when people say stuff like 'I'm twice your size!' etc. Or if they sort of look at you and then say something like 'I'm so fat' (when they have a perfectly healthy, lovely figure). I just don't know what you're meant to say to that. :/
Name calling is generally hurtful whether it's in regard to someone's appearance, weight, age, intellect or personality, etc, it's not pleasant to be insulted.
They are insulting you as they are jealous for you being naturally petite.
Stay as you are as you appear to be healthy and will look damn fine.
