Big, tall girl NO MORE
Thursday, April 09, 2015
I have been the 'big, tall girl' for as long as I can remember. Now that the 'big' is gone (and I'm not a girl anymore, by the way!), I'm getting lots of comments and remarks about my weight loss. Some are nice compliments, but some people keep on telling me that I've slimmed down too much, that losing weight will show with wrinkles on my face, or they say things like 'Don't you become an anorexic!' or 'You should stop dieting now!'. Most of these people some months ago were probably thinking that my hips were huge and I should have stopped eating chips and chocolate. I don't think I'm so skinny, I weigh about 137 pounds (I'm 5'9'' tall) and of course, having lost about 25 pounds since September it's a big change. But to be honest, I feel that people don't recognize me anymore. I'm no longer the 'big, tall girl'! Or are they just plain envious?
