Went out walking and was informed that I am a..........

It amazes me how rude people can be.  I went out walking in my neighborhood today, which I want to start doing regularly for exercise.  I really enjoyed the walk, was feeling great, then I get back home and as I am walking back into my yard some people from down the street drive by and yell "fat a**" out the car window at me.  I know I am not skinny by any means, but good grief, I don't need random people from down the block to tell me.   Sometimes I just cannot believe how rude people can be, you would think that adults would have a bit more maturity and respect.

They've got far more wrong with them than you do.  Don't let someone like that tear you down.  Hold your head up high and keep walking.  You don't need their approval or acceptance.

I would go egg their car. Ok, not really but I would want to egg it.

That's awful!  Honestly, I don't think most people who would see you out walking would be so mean, in fact, they probably silently applaud your efforts.  It's just that jerks are louder, unfortunately.

Thanks for all the kind comments!  I plan to continue walking, I am not going to let them stop me from it.  I really enjoyed it but it was just such a bad way to end my first time out.  Now I know what those neighbors are really like though, lol.
