    Even Though I Wasn't

    When I was a size 5 I was called fat told I was too big. Same thing when I was a size 7 even though I had 26" waist. This had a negative effect on my mind emotions and self image. All of these people were males.

    Eh.

    Too fat, too skinny, just right. I've heard all three while I was the same weight. Most recently, I overheard a guy asking his friend, "How hot is she? Is she fat? Is she as fat as kleisse?" I dunno. Sometimes it doesn't bother me, sometimes it does...

    That's An Obvious Statement.

    I've probably been called fat over a thousand times in my life, but I never really gave a damn, even when I was a kid. I'm fine with my current size, even if I am bigger than some people. However, I don't see why other people get so upset by being called fat. It seems like these...
