    I Understand This.

    All my life, I've heard, "If you just lost a little weight you'd be so beautiful!" I know I have some beautiful features, but the extra fat has caused me to get overlooked all my life.  Especially in the past year or so, I've gotten to an all time high of weight...

    And Then..

    If you lose the weight the same people that told you that'd you'd be "pretty enough" when you lost weight get mad and jealous at you for losing it. I've been on both sides, thinner and fat and you never win.  Makes you wonder why people take so much time to give...
