“You don’t need to lose any weight, you’re already skinny!”
That’s something I hear a lot. And I’d like to talk about this for a minute or so.
Just because someone looks a certain way DOES NOT MEAN people have to comment on it! I have 20kg (44lbs) to lose and I always get to hear that I’m already thin or skinny, and fit, and look great etc. People take one look and they think they know better. People think they have a right to comment and tell me it’s all in my head!
I’m gonna show you something. This is me with a t-shirt, and me with a jumper (I’ve flipped the picture for the text):
I get it. I get why people think I’m skinny/thin/fit. It DOES NOT MEAN that they get to ignore what say. I DO HAVE weight to lose, and being told I’m stupid and imagine being overweight IS NOT HELPING ME!
This is me:
Not skinny. Not thin. Not fit.
I know how to dress for the body I have (and I have big boobs that make things look smaller while wearing a shirt). I know what to do to look smaller than I am. And when I’m anywhere but home, I hold in that tummy so bad that I’m surprised I don’t have badass abs right now!! I’m seriously nautious after a while from holding it in!
Now, you may think that “well don’t hold it in” or “if you do that then you can’t be irritated with people”. Yes I can! Becuase if I say that “this is how it is” then that is how it is and IT IS NOT OK to say anything else to me! I know my body better than anyone else. That’s just the way it is!
Oh, and here are the last 2 shirts (the 3d I have on in the above picture):
