No. I'm neither way too big nor way too small. The only negativity I get is from myself.

What do you mean by discrimination? Have people been jerks about it? Yes. I have had a lower weight all of my life and there's always someone who wants to be unpleasant.

All. The. Time. I get called anorexic, a druggie, etc. etc. it's really maddening how often I experience weight discrimination. Just because I'm 5'6" and about 105-110lbs people always assume thee worst. But I've always been small-framed like this. Talk to my doctor, he knows this as well.

Often...


I got told at a Lane Bryant that these clothes were for "real" women, while she looked me up and down .

Yes, I have. Many times.
I'm heavy, but I'm not Too heavy. I buy my shirts and bras from regular stores. My bottom half is bigger and I have to buy size 14-16 pants. Yet, I'm treated like I'm a regular on My 600-Lbs Life. I'd like to add that I'm 5'8" with a large frame.

For the longest time, even through my mid 20s. Ridiculous what people would say. :-/
