and then have the satisfaction of completely ignorning them for a change.
i had a horrid time at highschool because of my weight and even though i'm over it now it can still hurt when i think about it.
A while ago i made friends with two girls, one who was slightly overweight but looked really pretty and another who was very overweight, iv'e been there myself so i understood how they felt when they talked about negative comments regarding there weight, fir a while they were fine but then they would start to look through magazines and call every thin blonde girl 'dumb' a bimbo or something else nasty and i was thinking 'i'm thin and blonde! does that mean they think i'm dumb too?' it really hurt because i liked these girls a lot but i never felt i fit in with them because they had weight issues and would talk about it together completely leaving me out even though they both knew i'd been there too.
they would also roll their eye's when we'd get ready to go out dancing and i'd put on a fitting dress or make snide comments when i talked about bikini's.
i can totally understand how they felt but all i wanted to do is be there friend yet it seemed that because i was thin i could never truly be one of them, that hurt a lot.
|I am like that,
According to the healthy book, i am just at the border.
But i am now down to 57 thank god! and i plan to get down to atleast 50 - 55 kilograms!
i want to get to 50 kg's too
i think i have about 7 to 10 to lose, i don't weigh myself though so i wouldn't know, whenever i do weigh myself and i'm a bit over i exercise too much
