I totally appreciate all the feed back from this post. When I made it I honestly had no idea it was going to be featured and gain so much attention. It was originally meant for just this group to see. I am happy about all the thank you's and positive feedback. I personally feel that this post helped a lot of women feel like they are not alone.
There was some drama going on but, honestly, that was to be expected.
Thanks again to all who read and replied.
Now this isn't meant to start a debate or cause a problem.
But the post "Do I look like a healthy mom?' really bothered me. No offense to the writer of the post but us skinny people get looked down on, and mistreated too.
Sometimes because we are thinner we are made out to be conceited, shallow people. A lot of the time, we skinny girls, are insecure and horribly uncomfortable with the way we look.
For me I have a hard time liking the way I look and I have to hide that I am proud of what I have accomplished with my body. If I mention anything size or weight related I get eye rolls, snotty remarks and looks of disgust. I once had someone ask me what size shorts I was wearing, after telling her and seeing the look on her face I felt terrible. I shouldn't be ashamed of myself because I'm thin.
I struggle with weight, I struggle a lot. I eat a certain way and exercise almost daily to continue to look this way. I could lose a few more pounds, shed some inches of my thighs but if I dare mention it to anymore I get put down. "YOU don't need to lose weight!" "I would kill to look like you" "Why are you even exercising" "What, are you trying to be anorexic?"
I am not just naturally thin, I come from a family who is 90% overweight and obese. They give me a hard time about my size as well. It hurts. For once I'd like it if someone could just be happy and proud of me. But no, mostly I just get picked on and you know who is doing it? The overweight people.
So yes, it would be nice if the "fatties", as you say, could be left alone. But it would also be nice if the skinny chicks could be treated fairly as well.
