    Well I don't know where else to put this but anyway summertime is coming and I just can't be arsed to get my "summer body." I'm not gonna cry myself to sleep though because I've discovered a coping mechanism lol.

    Even before memes were officially a thing, I have memed myself to death with self deprecation for...well, not being the thinnest creature ever.
    Spoiler:

    I was a chubby kid, who suffered cheek and tummy pinching by adults, and name calling from the boys.

    So when I was 7 I got down on the floor and pressed up till I couldn't feel my arms, and by the time I was a teenager (like 15) I had more visible muscles and core strength than the boys. :cool:

    And then I lost my gains my first year at University and got fat again lol

    So now as a 20-something year old woman I struggle with the ups and downs of my weight amount and I struggle with the ups and downs controlling it.
    Meantime I playfully bully myself with "you know it's time to lose weight when..."
    so I'm just gonna post the ones I remember finding funny here (you can add if you want):
    • you know it's time to lose weight when the shop assistant comes up to you not after 2 minutes and asks, "so...what size are ya lookin' for, anyway? " #NoSizeProfiling? (this recently started happening to me this year when I know my weight has climbed a bit. It's a shop I always go to and there's two shop bitc--assistants --there who keep asking me that?!)
    Here's some more

    • when your mother starts with the random "I'm just worried about you and want you to be happy" talk, while gently trying to tug your dinner plate away
    • when you're on a date and he comments about your "chubby cheeks"
    • when the guy you're seeing asks you, "what food have you got in your bag today, huh? :smug:"
    • when you have to take a rest in the middle of putting your shoes on
    • when you have to brainstorm a technique on how to get in your clothes
    • when you're suddenly faced with life's oldest dilemma: "do I use my train fare for the train, or for chips?" And then convince yourself that buying the chips will be fine because "I'll just work off the calories when I walk home! :ahee:...at 11 at night...in the middle of winter...in a bad area..."
