Three things that bug me: mentioning my weight (“You really need to lose weight”), telling me how I should exercise more (I already work out more than most people), telling me that I should eat less fast food (I *never* eat fast food. I got fat eating the healthiest food out there, NOT fast food. Fast food is for garbage cans, not humans). Yes, I have anger problems when it comes to my weight and body image. It’s hard enough being fat in today’s world without hating yourself. It’s very hard to lose weight–it’s a slow process, it takes time. So when someone (like a person’s mom) keeps bringing it up, it ticks me off. Especially when said someone is so proud of how she’s lost weight because of all the illnesses she’s had. Let’s talk about an UNhealthy attitude. Having lost 50 lbs. because you couldn’t eat is NOT healthy. We call that starvation, and I shudder to think of the nutrient deficiencies she has.

Grrr. Yes, I am “overweight.” Yes, I am not happy about it. Yes, I’m *trying* to lose weight. No, your comments are NOT helping.

I’m so tired of it all sometimes. I can see how a few more years of this makes people turn to stomach stapling surgeries. I know someone who went from a size 24 to a size 6 in about 8 months from that surgery. Is it tempting? Hell yes. Is it healthy? Hell no. She has so many nutrient deficiencies it’s not funny.

I just want to be healthy. Is that too much to ask? Right now, my doctor says I’m a healthy fat person. I refuse to become an unhealthy thin person for the sake of “losing weight.”

Some days I just want to cry myself to sleep.

    Hey be proud to be heavier than others, because I’m so skinny I hate it, I eat a lot and I don’t exercise, but I still don’t gain. So, be happy with yourself.
