Has anyone else noticed their old classmates from school gain weight? Watch

    I left school nearly a decade ago but I can't help notice that many of them have gone on to put on a lot of weight. Is this a common thing? I appreciate people have children etc. but this includes the boys as well.

    Btw, this isn't to disrespect people. I abhor bullying and have been the victim of bullying over my weight (e.g. being called anorexic when my BMI is 20?). I also think society is moving towards negatively targeting slimmer people e.g. meghan trainer's lyric 'tell them skinny *****es that' and plus size catalogues, when if I sung 'tell them fat *****es that' it would be abusive and if I had a sizes 4-8 catalogue it would be encouraging anorexia.

    I wouldn't say they're obese but they've gone up a dress size or few.

    lol everyone's too lazy to change so people will bring others down with them however in fact they don't actually realise that those people themselves are the problem and not others

    Yes, but only some of the guys. A lot of the girls have actually lost weight . The guys who were popular and athletic are now overweight and balding.

    I think a lot of people's bodies change as they age. One of the guys from my year at school is now practically bald, he's 27.

    People are a lot more than there weight and to be honest, if you put that much emphasis on what size a person is you should reevaluate.

    FYI - it was Nicki Minage who said "f*ck those skinny *****es" Megan's lyrics actually say "you can go and tell your skinny *****es that. No I'm just playing I know ya'll think your fat."

    Big big difference, don't misquote people to make skinny shamming a thing. It makes your arguments look weak. There are real examples of skinny shaming just look for them.

    Wow did I write this? I left school 9 years ago and it's exactly the same. I'm still rocking my size 6 body and they are all a bunch of fatties. It's the perfect karma
