People Make Big Sound Bad

I am 5"4' and I weigh 150, Thats it!! I'm not BIG per say. But in my family all the girls weigh 115, MAX. So all my other family members look at me like im some sort of Zoo animal with broad shoulders, wide thighs and round butt. Every family reunion they spoke to me about being too big, if I diet, if I exersice, why am I so big and different from all the other thin girls. it drove me MAD!! I am not BIG, I am damn well perfect and beautiful the way I am! Sure I dont look like todays modern day stick figure models but I know I look like the old views of beauty that you see in art. Thats how I see me and thats how I should always see me...no matter what my pig headed family sais of me!!

Thanks everyone, My family is pretty insensitive most times. And the thing is, being big doesnt make you ugly. Sure, if your unhappy then lose weight... but dont let other peoples perseption of beauty cause you to be unhappy. I rather look like I do now, than most other girls that are thin and look Bulimic.

All I have to say is I wish I were 15o! Actually it's my goal weight and I am 5'4 and 218. So by far you are right about that you are not overweight as you see it. Your family is being way overdramatic about the whole thing. You are happy and healthy and like who you are and what you look like, you rock! And they should appreciate you for you!
