I Was Told I Was Fat

    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...

    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.

    He Was Wrong

    I fit nicely into a size 3 jeans at the time. I measured 42-22-35.5 and worked out 2 hours a day, 6 days a week, I was 14 at the time. Then this boy at school said I was fat and floppy so I started being bulimic when I did eat, but I only ate once every couple days and then I...

    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...

    I love being called names!

    I love being called fatty, chubby, porker, anything that symbolizes my weight. Some people see it as an insult, but I see it as honesty and playfulness.

    It Hurts.

    Being called fat hurts, it really does, especially when you realise that the person who has called you fat has also decided that you're lazy, ugly, and worthless. My Grandma has called me fat since I can remember, actually, until the last time I saw her, at which time she asked...
