I disagree with people not making comments about a fat persons weight, they do, all the time.
i weigh 130lb now (nine stone four) and not a day goes by without someone in my family calling me fat.
i was a bit big once and i have the kind of family who will say 'as long as your healthy' in one sentance and 'gee, fliss has put on some weight' in the next, then if i lose weight my nan will say 'are you eating? you look pale'
before i got married i was very thin, i had been looking after myself, not dieting but just eating good healthy food, then i got married and started to eat KFC every day and i got lazy...and eventually i put on weight, the funny thing is, i didn't even notice really, i knew i wasn't skinny anymore but i thought i looked okay.
that Christmas i was at the table eating a cashew when my grandad said 'you eat a lot, no wonder your so fat!'
i just told him that he wasn't exactly lean himself but the comment hurt, a lot.
when my husband and i got home i came across a recent photo of myself and realised how much i had let myself go, i decided to use the tai bo videos i'd had laying around the house for ages and cut down on my food heaps.
i ended up losing so much weight and very quickly because i'm not generally a big girl, in two weeks i was thinner than the day i got married and i felt very healthy and stronger too, now i do tai bo for an hour every day because i can't bare the thought of going to see the family (eight hours away) with extra weight on....i'd never hear the end of it and it makes me feel so bad.
my friends are the same, constantly striving to stay super thin and if i visit them with a few extra kilo's i always leave feeling aweful.
my mum has to be the worst, she constantly asks how my weight is going when she calls and it gets so annoying, once my husband and i stayed at her place and i had eaten a few cracker biscuits, a few hours later and mum had cooked pizza, everyone got a plate except me so i asked her where mine was and she says 'oh, you already ate'...:censor::censor::censor:?
my husband snuck me a peice of pizza thank goodness. we were going out to drink that night and you can't drink on an empty stomache, i did try to explain that to mum but she didn't even understand.
sorry for the long post and vent....have needed to get that off my chest for a while
