Hey rubber ducks,
I have some friends who would like to lose some weight, I don't think they really need to. But, they are doing it for themselves to make themselves feel better and to get more out of life. I salute them! In a way, I wish I was in their situation. "Oh, I think I might lose a few pounds to fit into that dress better." That's great if you can lose it, then you're plain sailing. However, spare a thought for the petite girls who see that same dress and think "Oh, I think I might put on a few pounds...Oh...wait...I can't!" -_- People who are in the opposite situation don't understand that it is harder for us to put on weight then it is for some people to lose it. And why? Say hello to my friend: fast metabolism. It means that any food we do eat just disappears into nothingness, I just don't put on weight!? I have theorised that the food that I eat must be teleported into someone else's stomach mid-digestion. It just..I don't know! :P I think it might have something to do with my second friend: lack of appetite. I can't eat more than 1 plate of food. 3 course meals are a nightmare, as I'm half full after the starter! Of course this has it purks, I can keep a reasonably slim figure with relative ease, but it also opens itself up into a few other problems that you wouldn't necessarily consider:
1. I can't fit into clothes. Sometimes going shopping is a disappointment, as my friends can fit into things and I just can't. It's not as bad as it used to be though. At age 13, I weighed 5 stone or something ridiculous and could still wear 9-10yrs clothes. Charity shops are always sad too (Oh, woe is me! :P) as the clothes are less conventional sizes and really small sizes are rare. Like today, I found that 2 really cute pleated skirts, in size 14. In vain, I tried them on just to see them glide over the hips and hit the floor. *Cry* Hehehe.
2. You get called cute all the time! Some people might think this isn't a problem, but for me it is. At prom, the day when you are supposed to look gorgeous, spell-binding, amazing, stunnin', fit, hawt (I love adjectives!) and I walked out in my maxi dress, and everyone says. "Awwww, you look adorable!" -_-. I spent all that money to be called 'adorable.' Never again. Hahaha.
3. The "Oh, look! She's anorexic" people. AKA: Ignorant people. These are the people who don't bother to get to know you, and judge you on your appearance. Ages ago at dancing my friend was waiting outside with some of her friends from her school, and as I walked past they muttered "She looks anorexic." It really hit home how repulsive I can look. I can't even stand to wear bikinis out of fear of people being able to play the bones on my spine like a glockenspiel, although that would be pretty cool.
Thanks for reading! x Sorry this was a bit 'text heavy' today lads.
