so i was rushing to get out of social studies class (small desks and it SOOO hot in that room!) so i climb up my chair and jump over my desk. before i get to the door my teacher said 'better not do that again! im suprised you didnt break through the floor!' and the whole class laughed SOOO hard i thought i was gonna die!! :( sooo embarassing, i was really upset and i am usually not one to be affected by that stuff.... however i lost 30lbs this summer so hopefully i wont get any more comments like that....
Reason: This thread is not really motivating perse, so I am moving it to Lounge for continuing the discussion, thanks!
mine would be my cousin, who was seven, and definitely not trying to insult me- but she was hugging me and she goes "you've gotten fatter. you used to be skinny." this was at 150lbs, my high, and I'm 5'9" tall, so I wasn't huge, but it was a wake up call for me. I realized that I couldn't deny that the weight was there, and I had indeed gotten fatter. I was hurt, but it kicked my butt and got me to do something about it!
"I dont date fat chicks"
...yay for college...or not....
First of all.. .I'm a teacher and I find that HORRENDOUS!!!! I can't imagine any situation where I would make a decision to hurt a student like that... seems to me like that person is a jackass and CLEARLY in the wrong profession.
We're there to make your lives successful.. .not to damage you... that's AWFUL...
but the worst fat comments I've ever heard are the ones I make to myself... those are the most painful...
Ugh...some many other little ones... some from children who don't know any better...but still. That one cuts the most I think. That and some jock dick in Grade 8 calling me a twinkie.
Ok, I know it doesn't sound bad, but it still hurt.
Hi, My worst comment was while we were walking from the parking lot to the Target, I think, there was a homeless guy sitting on the sidewalk with his cart full of useless junk and a dog looking like it needed to eat a meal, he looks up as I am walking into the store and says, "My god, there ought to be a law against fat people like you." Now, I don't think anyone has ever said anything like that to me, knowing me or otherwise. I wanted to say back that at least I had a home and job, not sitting in front of a store pan handling all day with a dog that needed a meal. But, I held my head high and walked right passed him and all I said was, "I feel sorry for you!" Then I walked into the store and went to the bathroom and cried for 5 minutes. I had my heart ripped out of my chest that day. I know he was a homeless guy who was probably just feeling sorry for himself, but he really hurt my feelings. I started my diet plan about a week later after I had the money to buy the right food. Now I am 150 lbs. lighter, but I still need to lose another 150 lbs. before I can call it quits. Well, good luck everyone. Hope to see you all around the site!
Allyxx:: HOW RUDE!!! Especially for a teacher to say something like that! They're suppose to be there to teach you, guide you and show you a path to follow.... not make fun of you for class entertainment. UGGG that makes me MAD
im2big:: I don't know what I would've done, but who did he think he was saying that to you!! THAT jerk!! everything happens for a reason I suppose... maybe he did you a favor because NOW you're on track and having success.
I'll tell ya...the ONE good thing that comes with being overweight is empathy. I know this may sound weird, but being having this extra weight all my life has definitely made me a good person (personality wise).
"If you lost weight you'd be really pretty." (A friend, also 1997.)
The last one was intended as a compliment, probably, but my god, what a backhanded one.
I am 5ft 5in, was 178lbs, now down to 168lbs, and my goal is 147lbs.
Oh yes, I have been called "lard arse" :-( I am dress size 14 by the way!
Thats going to change this year.
I have worked really hard to lose weight. i'm 5'11 and 150lbs, but I still have a belly. I get asked all the time, what age is my baby, or how far along am I? i have had people get up on trains and offer me their seat. When I was on holidays last year, our holiday co-ordinator very kindly explained to me that i would still be able to do the water activites even though i'm pregnant.
It hurts, because i have worked so hard. It feels like i'm never going to get there.
p.s i'm not pregnant, nor have i ever been!
"I can't believe Jess thinks that she has a chance with Joe. He told me at skate-town [skating rink, the once-popular teenage hangout] that he didn't know why I hang out with such a fat ugly bitch."
"Haha! I've been asked that before too. I just tell people that she makes me look hot in comparison, so more guys will talk to me."
I un-muted my phone and said, "I may be fat, but at least the guys that are interested in me like me for who I am and not because I'll make out with them five minutes after meeting them."
In retrospect, the immaturity of the entire situation is staggering. I cringe thinking about all the shallow teenage stuff I went through, but at least I've learned from it. Anyway, that was the only time I remember actually being hurt by a comment about my weight. Most of the time I was called fat in anger by people with whom I was fighting, so I didn't pay any attention because I knew we were just hurling random insults at each other in attempt to see who could hurt whose feelings the worst.
My name is Heather and I grew up fat in a farming community. I was often called "Heffer".
Not really about my weight but I felt I needed to say it. I've been holding that one in for a long time!
