My daughter, who is almost 5, keeps asking me why I have a big butt. It's rather laughable actually, but I wonder if she would still perceive it as big if I were smaller?

The one that always sticks out for me was from when I was in middle school, already very large at that age. The school bully, of whom I have many horror stories, was bouncing a basketball in the school gym after school one afternoon with his "crowd" of friends, when he loudly said "let's see what bounces better?" and bounced the ball once on the gym floor and then once off of me. It was humiliating. Hopefully leaving it here will be a permanent letting go of the memory. Thanks, and good luck everyone!

I have a couple:

I work in construction, so being thick-skinned is a requirement, but every now and then one comment will get to you. Sometimes, I get complimented on my ample bosoms. If you haven't noticed, I'm a dude.

That being said, I enjoy most self-effacing humor. The best joke I've heard so far came from my 2yr old. He once told me that my belly button was hiding in a cave.

you dont have to accept someone to avoid being rude, just shut your mouth(not you them). if you dont have something nice to say dont say anything at all. also a child doesnt see themselves thru their own eyes..thats why our comments make life altering changes occur inside of them.
i see a fat, unhappy woman in the mirror-but other than my bff and husband I wouldnt expect someone to make a comment about it. make sense?


that being said-very insightful post

JUST A THOUGHT?

If I look in the mirror, and I can not accept what I see?

Then how can I really ask or expect anyone else to either.

The only thing that helps me to accept myself, is because I know me and I can see past the image in the mirror.

But......Can others?

Just a thought.

I am going to share more of an incident that is one of the many nails in the coffin of why my mom and I aren't close.

I was 9 years old and we had to buy new clothes for the school year. My mom went into a "mommy dearest" tailspin because I was too fat for the cheap clothes and she would have to buy bigger sizes and hem the legs. I will never forget how that felt. She has consistently poked in a passive agressive manner about my weight since childhood and can't seem to let go of the disappointment of having a fat daughter.

Hello, everyone. Sometimes people can be so insensitive when they're around an overweight person. It bugs me because the attitude behind it is that "It's our fault." However, if I can say anything to anyone here. Although, I'm sorry for your hurt, I'm glad that it happened. It is in that painful moment, that God gave you mercy & grace to press forward. Now you are here, making a change. For the person/people who have hurt you, forgive them. It is not only healthy for you, but it's one more stepping stone in your beautiful journey!! emoticon

One of man's greatest fears when forgiving others, is when he has to forgive himself..

1 John 3: 19-20

Remember, God desire for you is not to have a religion but a relationship with Him. It's easy to tie the two together, but they are completely different! One of man's greatest fears when forgiving others, is when he has to forgive himself..

Recently my aunt passed away. We were at the funeral home when my step-father who was his sister, said" Did you know she weighed 350pds, I can't believe she weighed that much. At the time I weighed 350 pds myself. They were having a tuff time finding enough strong young folks to carry her casket. I never said a word, jus wandered what he thought of me.

When I was pregnant with my youngest daughter, I was engaged to my ex but shortly after I moved out of state he became abusive. I decided to take off and move with my sister but nobody but her and a few others knew I was pregnant.

While I was living with her I decided to come back to Colorado for a visit and an old (supposed) friend got in touch with me. I told him I was coming out for a visit, and so there were no surprises or hurt feelings I told all my friends I was 7 months pregnant.
When I told him he told me nobody would want me since I had 2 children by two different men (I have been married before my oldest daughter is from my ex husband).
That hit me hard and it took me 4 years to understand that it wasn't my fault my ex hit me and he put my children's lives in danger. I will take a shameful look any day over living with an abusive partner.

My children are safe and so am I and that's all that matters, and I no longer talk to the person who said that to me. Another wise choice

I am new here and would like to leave a couple comments so I can put them behind me. Here is goes :)

My niece, who at the time was about 4, had to go to the bathroom when we were taking a road trip. I went into the bathroom with her and I had to go to...she looks at me and says..."wow auntie, you have a big butt"

My other niece, who at the time was about 3, gave me a hug when my husband and I were leaving their place and said wraps her arms around my stomach and says..."auntie, why is your stomach so big"....in front of his whole family. I was quick to reply and said..."because everyone is made differently and no one is the same size". Then she just said..."oh ok" LOL

whew...goodbye!

My mom's 3 year old foster son came up to me at Christmas time, smacked me on my butt, and said, "you've got a big one of these, but that's okay 'cause you're big all over, right?"

He's a sweet little kid, and of course he didn't mean anything by it - but it kind of stuck with me. Oh well, I guess he just gave me a little more motivation!

This thread is a fantastic idea, thank you!

Two for One sale! I'm going to leave this one here for you, it kinda makes me laugh now, but at the time no so much. It was while I was doing one of my big walks. I love big walks, between 5 and 10 miles each one way. First I pass a bus stop where this one guy points to the empty police car near by and said I should just borrow it. (Yeah, sure that'll work) Then further down the road a car full of college-ish aged boys is stopped at a light, one of the little *%^&$#%^ leans out and asks if I want a cheeseburger. At the time I kept walking. Blushing furiously, but walking because I didn't trust myself to say anything back. emoticon

Only later did I realize that if they keep driving everywhere they want to go they're just going to end up just like me. Is it wrong to hope I'm around when someone offers them a cheeseburger? emoticon

So I have a couple of things to leave here on this page and hopefully move on. First, the day before my b-day my mother informs me "we knows its your bday but we arent getting you anything but we can take you out to eat I guess if you really want to." The other is my mother says she is "dieting" also but I have yet to hear anyone on this website eat a whole regular size bag of cheetos and gain 8 lbs since the first of the year and actually follow the suggestions on here. Thank you for letting me vent

I feel sorry for her, some day she will mature and realize what a mistake, a crude mistake, she made and she will have to live with that knowledge.

Your life is probably better without her.

The biggest slap in the face I've received in a long time came 2 years ago. A very close longtime friend explained that she didn't want me in in her wedding party after all because I "wouldn't be comfortable in dress (she) had selected." Her slightly plump 16-year-old niece, with whom she was extremely close, was jilted too.

Instead, she included a distant cousin and a coworker she had known less than 6 mths. She got the thin, blonde wedding party she wanted, but we are no longer close (several reasons--not just this). Still, nice to know the clothes were more important than the people in them, huh?

When I was about sixteen (and rather overweight even then) I was visiting my great-grandmother for Christmas, who was 95 or so at the time.

"Now, which one are you?" she asks.

"I'm Kay's daughter." I replied.

"Wow! You sure have gone downhill!" She said.

I'll never forget it! Of course, she was a nasty woman, but it still stung!

Holly you are pretty. Have you ever expressed those thoughts to your dad? I think you may need to nicely put it to him, I'm sure that wasnt his intentions but he needs to be the one to explain himself I think. emoticon

Last night I helped with a med pass and told one of the clients jokingly that he couldnt hide from me and I said right kate? to the next client in line and she said well, YOU cant hide from anyone...so much for my joking around...I was referring to tracking them down for meds.

Some of these comments make me laugh and some make me want to cry! My dad, from as early as I can remember, has said either that I had a pretty face, or that I'd be pretty if I'd just lose weight. I always have wondered, "Why can't he just say that I'm pretty?" and told myself my whole life it was because I wasn't. I think because of these things I never even tried to take care of myself because I didn't think I was worth it. But now I know that I am, and I am going to prove it to my dad. Okay, I'm just crying now, but it feels good to get it out!

Grandparents can be the worst. about 5 years ago i was visiting my family who i hadn't seen for 5 years and i promised my son who was 2 years old that i would go on the trampoline with him. My grandmothers first response was "oh please don't we don't want it to break." and then she laughed like she thought it was funny. the worst part of it was that it was at my sister-in-laws birthday party in front of the ENTIRE family.

Ahh...old people...I work in a nursing home so I get lots of good ones. Today I had three.

1. A woman calls me a fat pig because I confiscated her potato chips (she has trouble swallowing). Then she says, "well, you're not fat. You just have a huge ass."

2. A man who hangs out in the hallway on a stretcher tells me I'm too fat and that I have a "fat ass" every time I walk by.

3. Probably my favorite--a man in the dining room says, "Hey baby, I've been looking for a husky girl. Are you married?"

Last spring, a woman that was a casual friend saw me at a dog show. She had lost a lot of weight over the winter & insisted on telling me that she joined Weight Watchers & that it worked for her. Well, that's just great...it didn't work for me.

She proceeded to inform me (in front of a crowd of people mulling around) that she saw an infomercial and that the girl in the "BEFORE" photo looked JUST like me.

Thanks for pointing that out...like I (and everyone around us) didn't know that I'm fat?

I was in the grocery store. Buying donuts - for my mom - I swear! lol

And a nice little old man waiting in line behind me said...

"Excuse me, miss? You're going to get fatter than you already are if you eat those donuts!"

It's been years and it still makes me crack up!

I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Oh, where to start?!?!?!

My 1st good burn came when I was 11 yrs old at about 120 lbs.
I was at a restraunt my Gramma worked at & I was sharing a quesadilla with my older sister, when my Gramma said to the "Cute Waiter"(as my sister & I referred to him) that I was a pretty girl , but that I just needed to lose some of the "chub".
emoticon "Yeah, well, You're OLD!!!!!"
NO! I didn't say that. I will never forget it though. I wanted to die!!!

Much more recently, one of my nieces or nephews(can't even remember because kids are just honest & forward so it's "forgive & forget" with them)AnyWhOOO.... One of them asked me if I had 4 boobs. "No, that lower set is just my belly."
emoticon That one was more funny than anything, I just wish I wasn't so out of shape that they would think that.

And I saved the worst & most recent for last.
I was out last year on one of my walks, I'm glad this one happened when I was already a good 30 lbs or so into my weight loss journey or it might have killed me.
As I was passing 2 teenaged boys(they sure have a way with girls , don't they!) I smiled a big, and honestly sincere smile, at them. Just as we passed, one of them shouted "Oh My God! EARTHQUAKE!!!" They both jumped in the air as if the ground were shaking & ran!!!
"That was real Nice!" I DID say that.(sarcastic as hell) I was on the phone with my Mom when this happened, and I did laugh as I told her , because it was "a good one", but after few moments I cried too, then I got pissed. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I am waiting for the day to come, when I am out for my walk & I'm at or at least closer to my goal weight & I walk past those little pukes. It might be interesting to see what they have to say then.

I do feel better now,Hugs, Carrie


I am getting over being self conscious & becoming self aware.

This goes WAY back...when I was a kid (probably 10 or 11) I went to see my grandparents and my grandpa said, "Well you're a nice size". What does THAT mean? I remember my grandma's gasp and then said, "She's not a turkey for crying out loud!" The entire exchange had me mortified. But I have to admit, now it's pretty funny!

actually, I had forgotten that years ago i came out of a convenience store to see teenage boys laughing in the next car over, I didnt think anything of it until I saw COW written in the dust across my rear window. I went in the store and grabbed their little friend and asked which one did it and told him that kid better be in front of me in 10 seconds or I was calling the police...he ran out and dragged a friend in and made him apologize. They were all mortified and to be honest, it hurt but overall I felt empowered.

Sometimes our children say the cutest things. I cant remember what was happening but I will always remember my son saying,"yeah and we're not fat huh mommy." That makes a mom feel good knowing that her child feels that way about her especially at my size (243). Just pulls at your heart strings. (he's almost 5)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Not too long ago I was walking the track around our neighborhood park and my song had ended on my mp3 player just in time for me to hear the teenager on the playground equipment say that I was a whale. Nice. Totally sunk my spirits.

Yup! ;) Back in 1998 a kid asked if I was pregnant, which hurt my feelings, but not too bad as kids don't know better. Adults KNOW better!! Well, they should!

I work in real estate, and about a year ago one of my clients came in after being away for a couple of months. The first words out of her mouth, after giving me a quick "up-and-down" were "Oh, are you pregnant?" I said "No" with a forced smile on my face. Her reply was "Oh, just the way your belly comes out in that top, I thought you were." Nice!!!! Oh, and thank you for NOT apologizing!!

I'll start.

Towards the end of the summer while picking up my daughter from preschool a 3 yr old with a speech problem looked at me and CLEARLY stated "wow, your really fat". Great time for improvement kid. emoticon

I challenge each of you to drop off any rude, hurtful, or even laughable comments here on this thread. We have all had that moment where someone says something, intentionally or not, that stabs us right in the heart. Post it here and leave it behind as you move forward towards a healthier you!! emoticon
