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!
However a great retort to anyone making a fat comment about you, just tell them that you were at least born with a brain, which they obviously seem to lack, not to mention you can loose the weight they can't grow intelligence, manners or a brain!!!
School was quite bad for me :( but even in adult life I had suffered quite some abuse.
Guy walking past me saying: You are so f***ing ugly!
Guy on a bicycle calling me: Fatso!!! And of course he rode off and I couldn't respond
However today when I do have the chance to respond I relish in giving them a piece of mind, be proud of the fact that thankfully you are intelligent and on your way to a slimmer and healthier you.
I really wonder what makes people think that they have the right to insult big people. It's actually a very pathetic thing to do.
It was horrific. I pretended I didn't hear them so I wouldn't be obliged to talk about it or something.
He made mean comments to me all the time; we used to fight a lot. This one was different because he said it matter of factly and not while we were in a fight. I said mean shit back to him, but it still hurt hearing that one, especially since I never had a date all through high school.
I had a drive by insult "Why dont you lose some weight you fat B*tch." I wanted to ask him why he was still having sex with his (insert family member name here) but I didnt want to offend such a classy guy so I let it slide.
This makes me so sad. It's horrible how cruel people can be to eachother. Especially a teacher! that person should be fired. I've never been overweight in my life, slim for most of it, but I've always had a protruding stomach. I had a very mean 'best friend' in grades 6-8. One day our class was going on a field trip and i was wearing a skirt. She looked at my stomach and said "are you wearing a fanny pack under your skirt?" - that hurt. Another time a boy said that I would be skinny if I didn't have a big stomach. I could go on and on. I've always been sensitive about it. Even last night, a coworker grabbed my stomach and said "you really need to do some sit-ups" - the worst part was that I do work out almost every day. I'm 126lbs at my heavy weight, at 5'7. What is the world coming to? These comments don't even compare to the way my own brother told me I was fat on a routine basis growing up. When I was 15 I was hospitalized with anorexia. I hate to say that I would ever wish anything bad on these people, but if they treat their own children with the cold and un-compassionate manner that they treat others concering weight, I'm sure they'll experience what it's like to have a child in the hospital, or at least with very low self confidence and related issues, one day.
If being hurt by others has any positive outcome it's that it's probably made us all much kinder and compassionate people.
I know I'm fixing this up but it just makes me more impatient for the day when I can walk into a store, get a medium size shirt and NOT get made fun of by people. Ugh. Not the worst insult ever, but it's been a LONG time since I've been made fun of and heard it with my own ears.
all I can say JEALOUS! You were Juliet and the "friends" behind your back, were NOT and hey maybe not even in the play?
It's called talent.
Now those really hurt especially because I was really conscious about my weight ESPECIALLY in a bathing suit
It really just makes me angry now because it's not like they are that much skinnier than me.. why pick on me?
I went through puberty really early, so when I was twelve I had gained quite a bit of weight and had very large breasts for my age, I'm talking at least a D cup. I was pretty self-conscious about it. (Now that I've lost weight, all my boobage is gone, but oh well :) Anyway, in eighth grade I was just messing around with my friend and somehow I ended up sitting down hard on the edge of one of those long cafeteria tables. The table buckled and crashed to the floor. Everyone stared. This guy who was always making fun of me exclaimed in a very loud voice, "Big titty overload, bringin' the table down!" Everyone could hear. As if I wasn't embarrassed enough.
Definitely junior high school and the first few years of high school were bad for me (I lost a lot of weight in the summer between grade 10 and 11). I wasn't even that big then, but kids are cruel little bastards.
I wish adults would intervene more in these things. Then again, there seems to be at least one teacher (first post) that's equally a jackass.
Then around 2 hrs later he came in running through the house lookin for me because it turns out either I hit something and didnt notice, which I'm sure I would have freakin heard..., or someone else hit it or something happend to cause the bodykit's fiberglass bumper to split in 2... which I'd think if I hit something I would have noticed... and I dont see how I could have even drivin it like that so I have NO CLUE what caused it.
So anyway he assumed I did it, and I cant say with 100% assurance that I didnt... I have no clue wtf happend..., so he ran to my door beat on it as hard as he could I answered the door like ??? he started shouting "WTF DID YOU DO TO MY CAR" I thought he was joking so I just started laughin and said "wtf are you talkin about?", its also good to point out that I'm a smart ass by nature so he probably thought I was being a smart ass like usual. Well me laughing pissed him off even more so he went into a rage and startin raving and insulting me with stuff like "YOU ****ING FAT*** blah blah blah" then came at me tryin to fight so we were throwing eachother around the room for around 5 mins before my dad broke it up.
Still dunno what happend to do that, honestly I think someone backed into it after I parked it. But yea that kinda upset me for a bit because he never said anythin like that to me before and I know it was probably just because he was mad but the fact that he said it meant that it he obviously thought that.
Oh well, at that time I was about 280lb and he was under 200, now he's 260lb and I'm 209lb.
I felt like the teacher was using me as a punishment tool.
"Your Sister's really fat"-not even to me! but said to my brother!
"Oh, you mean BIG Sara?" in third grade
ratinhat88: I developed really early as well.. but i think I got more rudde comments about my weight/breast from adults than my friends..
don't let these things from the past affect your growth now..
