I think that self-consiously(sp?), I want to stay skinny and underweight even though I feel bad when people make fun of me. But yeah, I've got issues so don't question it..

that annoys me soo much
when people are like. "i can't do that"
but then they except others to do stuff. ya know?


Yeah, exactly. Then, if I mess up (I mess up when I speak sometimes) or say the wrong thing, or trip over, she will not shup up about it. She laughs, and its not a real laugh, its a fake laugh, and so I always say "Hey thats not nice, you hate when we laugh at you, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't laugh at me, thanks".

It frustrates me a fair bit, actually.

Thank you! Even though I know it's bad and everything, (I mean not eating to stay underweight), I still feel like I should do it.

you should try and stay the RIGHT weight for you, and not follow these unltra skinny fashion dolls that staunter up and down the cat walks, going to far under weight can cause stop of periods, and sometimes even death, why would anyone want to be ultra skinny and unfit,

It's ironic, because when you think you're looking bad, no one else notices nor cares.

I like losing weight, but I don't go out of my way to do it anymore. I used to have eating disorders though.

On the other hand, I'd like to get a nose job. One day in seventh grade a kid told me I had a big nose and I've hated it ever since.

I think that's what makes people have bad images of themselves, other people. When you're a little kid you feel beautiful. It isn't until someone points out their idea of a flaw that you think you aren't good enough.

When you're little, insults are part of a daily thing. Its okay to be obnoxious and shit when yuo're little because you're little. But as you get older, you start taking insults a bit more personally, because when you're a kid, sometimes you don't really mean things. But as an adult they do mean more.


I think people should stop being so defensive and should just love themself for who they are. They don't need to be gorgeous, or handsome. I'd rather date a guy who's much more happy about himself than he is hot.

Celebrities are not new. They've always been around, they've always been idols. But I think just now, their opinions are different which is why the rates are so high. And they've been put on the spot for a reason, and because so many people look up to Celebrities, they feel they need to compare themselves to them. Which is just damn stupid.

Basically, all I'm saying, is people should be happy with themselves.

It's pathetic the way people look at themselves today. I weigh about 120lbs and there have been times where I have wanted to stop eating. I know people who LITERALLY weigh 98lbs and aren't happy with how they look. Nobody is happy with themselves 100%. Everybody is flawed. But today more than ever the media focuses on those flaws.

There is research to show that happiness rating on a scale of 1 to 10 1 being not happy at all, 10 being really happy and 5 averagely happy that on this rating size 16 os 10/10 and size 6 is 6/10 so it is better to be plump than to have barely and meat on your bones. All I have to say is get your finger out of your throat and eat a donut a bit harsh of me yes but I can't help it what is it about apperance that people are so obsesed about I'm happy about my apperance as long as I can fit in my new jeans I'm happy.

Wow.

How very intolerant.

Oh my gosh.

Wow. Ok, well, for one, people aren't going to stop because you think they should.

Prehaps you should be a little less opinionated and a bit more understanding?

For one, people who don't eat, because they think they're fat are anorexic. I'll try and explain a bit about this. They don't just not eat. They exercise a hell of a lot, and they do eat a little tiny bit each day. Just count every single calorie. I've known some to keep their daily intake to under 600 calories, some to keep it under 200. It depends. Some do the 2468 diet, where they eat 200 one day, 400 the next, 600 the next and 800 the next, then nothing, then 200 again, and so on. Because anorexic people aren't stupid, although it is a bit foolish to do this. They know that if you just stop eating then you seriously fuck upyour metabolism.

Ok. Now onto bullimia. People who force them selves to throw up are bullimic. They don't not eat, they binge eat and purge it later. So bulimic people might eat that doughnut. So that was very ignorant and stupid.

I'm sorry for this long rant, I was just surprised about their lack of knowledge.

I don't particullary like the way I look. Actually, I don't like it one bit. When I sit down, I make sure my legs are up high, so they don't look fat. This all came from people telling me to die, telling me I was stupid, worthless, and much worse things. Then, I got a boyfriend, and just, the way he acted, it made me feel like I had to be perfect. So I'm pretty insecure, because he would try and push me into doing things that I just didn't want to. And I felt like I had to look perfect to do these things.

Its the same story, you know? They cant stop, because they feel less that perfect. So you saying "Eat a doughnut" is just silly, because its not going to work, and its a very closed minded way of looking at things.
