I seriously think its stupid.
Its no fkn secret that i have fat legs and arms and face and a belly. Ok yes i am fat. I dont walk around crying about it but i state the obvious. I ask the bf how can i slim down my fat thighs and he rolls his eyes. I rub oil on my apparently non existent stretch marks and im "delusional". I already have my mom calling me fkn stupid for watching my diet/exercise.

It makes me mad how no one takes me seriously. Im not delusional i just saw pictures of me and its disgusting. Thought i could wear shorts and a tank but obviously not.
Whenever i exercise it has to be alone or others make "sarcastic" comments about my weight which frustrates me so much and i "overreact".
I.hate.this.body.

Too thin is very bad for your health, neither your body or your mind is getting the proper nourishment it needs to be healthy. You hair and skin dries out, you get too forgettfull and confused to function. You are tired all the time and exhausted easily because the body and mind just doesn't have the fuel it needs to work well. It makes you susceptable to many internal illness's too. I'm anemic and B12 deficient so for me too thin and having a bought of anorexia means getting really ill, really fast.
I choose to want to be healthy even if that means extra pounds. Being beautiful and healthy inside is more important to me. I want to be around for a long enough time to enjoy my children and grandchildren if my boys ever become fathers. I want to be around to enjoy life with my family. Skinny is just not an option I would ever consider again. It an idea advertisers came up with and convinced people of being what is supposed to be and I don't like to be manipulated.

I'm not thin. I dont want to be malnourished.
What I'm saying is that i am fat and im trying very hard not to be.

I just don't get why no one else can see it the way I do?

Hey hunny. I can completely relate to what your saying. According to the figures, my BMI is within a healthy range, and my weight is apparently fine too. But I feel fat. My thighs wobble, my stomach is just awful, my arms, my face and chin....
Anyway.
I too decided to do stuff about it. I am surrounded by friends and family who say I look fine. They too roll their eyes when I say i want to loose weight. Its tough. Really tough. Even now when my family know that I am on a strict diet and am exercising a lot, they offer me chocolate and sweets and biscuits. Makes me feel all sorts of things. But I am staying strong.
What kind of stuff are you doing?
PM me if you need support.
Stay strong. x
