    I hate being skinny so much.

    I absolutely despise it. My ribs slightly show, my elbows stick out, my collarbones are so very visible and I have the "three inch" thigh gap. But, no, not because of a eating disorder, I eat like crazy. Like three big meals and then small snacks all throughout the day. My...

    I Hate When Someone Talks About My Weight.

    You Can Talk About Anything Else About Me And I Won't Care. But When My Weight Is Brought Up, It Really Hurts. I Don't Want To Be This Way.. As Anyone Can Obviously See If They Pay Attention To How Much I Eat. No Guy Wants To Be With A Girl Like This.
