    Yes, I was told that,

    but I'm not. I am muscular, and I have an athletic build. I am no model (although I'd probably qualify as a "plus-sized" one), but that's just fine by me. I wish people weren't so judgmental. It just makes everyone sad.

    I was told I'm fat and it is the truth, I will not hide from it cause they're right.  Anyway, it don't matter.  I got this way for a reason and when the right time comes along, I'll shed it off.

    So Was I

    My ex husband called me fat. My current husband calls me hot. In fact (and this was delicious), after a year with me, even my ex-husband called me hot. But he was tooo late - this fat girl had a man who saw her for what she was. It was like, the best revenge. Charlotte

    By one certain person. But...they are a mentally unstable superficial boring excuse of a human being. Should I feel hurt when an insult comes from someone like that? Um, be hurt by an ugly man's comments or soak in a gorgeous mans comments? Hmmm..what to do.

    I have never been a thin girl, but after I began puberty, my weight became something that could be policed. Whenever I gained a few pounds (I never gained more than five, and I've never gone over a certain weight), my mother would say, "You're gaining weight, maybe you should...

    One of my friends thought it'd be a funny joke

    to write "ur fat" on several of my notes in school. What she doesn't know is that I've been struggling with my self esteem and weight loss for the past 6 years.
