My confession: I wish I was bigger.

I am naturally petite, but I have long arms, legs and a long torso making me look even more skinny.

People say stuff to me everyday about my weight, such as:

You need to eat more!
Can you get any skinnier?
You are bone thin!!


Do people not realize this hurts too? Would they go up to an obese person and say:

You need to eat less.
Can you get any fatter?
You are such a lard!




This is also something I can't talk about with many people. It always turns into someone thinking I'm "fishing for compliments" or people saying "well I WISH I looked like you..." its so hard to look in the mirror and see hip bones, thin wrists and small thighs.

My husband likes bigger girls. At least curvy ones. I have curves, like wide hips, but its all bone. I feel insecure when he's laying in bed with me and feeling on me.. I can't help but think he's thinking how boney I am/feel.




So theres my first real confession.

I wish people would realize their words, even though they may not think they should, do hurt. My best friend is very skinny and I've told people to shut it more than once about her weight because it got so bad that she was near tears.

Eat cream cheese filled jalpeno poppers everynight with marina sauce...It workled for me, gained 20 pounds of unwanted chunck  pretty quickly. Oh and beer will do the same! Good luck, gaining weight can be just as frustrating as losing weight...

((hugs)) I've been there, I *am* there. It does hurt. You either have people shoving food down your throat or accusing you of an eating disorder!

If you're seen eating a salad, you're assuming to be starving yourself.

I hate it!

Yes god forbid I order a wrap or salad. Thats the worst, people critiquing your food all the time..
. The only way I can gain is pregnancy and it doesn't stick around long

I think you're beautiful. We are our worst critics huh? I can understand not feeling comfortable with your body, I've felt that way. After I had my dd I can no longer eat anything I want. And lets not discuss the csection pooch that seems to appear and not want to go away lmao.
