Men can be clueless sometimes.
See, I'm a big woman. I'm not talking about "I need to lose 5 pounds" big. I'm in the "morbidly obese" category.
Recently I've lost about 15 pounds and 2 pant sizes. I'm feeling all proud of myself cause I'm rocking a pair of size 18 jeans.
Meanwhile, hubby is watching The New Girl and he keeps commenting how fat Zooey Deschanel looks.
|Zooey on the left. Me on the right. Clearly she is huge. |
(and that was sarcasm)
I'm trying NOT to be mad and NOT get my feelings hurt because he doesn't mean anything by it, but at the same time...
I'm sick of him and pretty much all of society calling tiny little women fat. Like, if you can't see the outline of all of their bones then they are fat.
WT actual F people. Do you not realize what kind of message you are sending?
So, I'm trying to get down to 120. I've got 100 pounds to lose. And 120 would put me close to her weight. But she's fat? So I'm supposed to get down to what... 90. Maybe I'll be thin then.
Its not surprising that so many women these days suffer from anorexia and other eating disorders.
Because you can literally NEVER be thin enough to make people happy. Even people, like my husband, who like big girls (I was already huge when he married me, this isn't like a new development or anything) You would think they'd not go around calling tiny women fat, but they do.
And that hurts in ways that he can never imagine, even if he doesn't want it to.
Oh well, on to...
