  • No belly fat hanging over jeans that are 4 sizes too small.  Not me personally, I wear clothes that actually fit, lol. But it would be nice to not have to see that.

  • I enjoy the fact people inherently like to carry tiny/skinny people... Like all through high school guys were always carrying me places, and now my SO does the same. Not so much now that I'm getting more pregnant, but I enjoy being lazy and carried around an amusement park, or when hiking through the mountains. And if I weren't so petite and light that wouldn't happen.

  • theycallmemomie- I totally agree. I've been in that position before too where people were jealous, called me anorexic or whatever. rude! You don't say to a fat person- "are you overeating? or not exercising" whatever. People are rude no matter what no matter who you are or what shape. You are probably right about your friend though. I have been on the other side of the coin too where i was fat and jealous of my skinny friends, and didn't want to be around them even b/c I felt so bad about myself. But now I take anyone where they are and I have self esteem fat or skinny. I am 5'3" and weigh 152 pounds. Technically overweight, but I love my body. Gonna just be happy no matter what.
    What I love about being skinny tho, my fav thing, is buying clothes.

  • Before I got sick 2 years ago, I was size 3 and could wear the latest fashions. My DH would tell how pretty I was and stuff. Now, I'm size 12 and very self conscious about how I look and clothes for my size are dreadful. When I went shopping for formals for several functions I was attending, I was so disappointed at how the dresses for my size looks. Besides, at 4' 11", being skinny and petite made everyone seems protective around me, now I'm ignored...lol
