I found it so hurtful when a couple of summers ago, I was having a really hard time and had very little appetite thanks to how crappy I felt and one of my friend's mothers said to me, "Are you SURE you don't want a sandwich? You really look like you could use it." That was coupled with a disgusted look and a once over. I was already depressed and that surely wasn't helpful. You're absolutely right, Stephanie, people don't realize that "skinny" remarks are hurtful.
I know how that feels, i'm only 5ft 2, i weigh about 8 stone now, but i lose wight so, so easily, especially when i'm stressed, which is most of the time
I hate it when people think i dont eat, when i actully eat like a horse
Though i'm happy with my weight right now, it's even harder trying to keep it on!!
