I knew one guy that used to tell me I was fat all the time. I used to tell I was perfectly comfortable with who I am and it's not my fault he prefered anorexic women. (He started calling fat when I weighed 135lbs and had a 30 inch waist.)
However, the worst person I know for putting me down for my weight is myself. I know that I am obese, and need to loose weight. Telling myself that I ok with it is so wrong, because that is when I get lazy and stopped trying to get fit. But there are times I am too hard on myself, and I need to stop and remind myself that beauty is more than the size of my waist - it's the heart that matters.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-control. II Timothy 1:7
I think I have an original view about life or myself... but when people degrade me (or try to) I usually come back with something really smart-mouthed and sassy. Like, one guy was in line behind me and whispered to his friend something about how fat I am and I turned around and said "I am big, yes.. but I am working on my health.. you are ugly on the inside and I'm sure its much more difficult to fix that problem." His friend (really good looking guy) laughed and was like "True man, she's gorgeous.. you should apologize. She's funny too AND she wouldnt take your crap. I like her!" HAHAHA
You can't let other people's words break you... let them DRIVE you and push you to be and DO more. Usually if someone has something negative to say, they actually feel bad about themselves and just want to try to knock you down. Don't let them. Love yourself most and their words will only push you harder :))
