GroovyGwen Posted July 28, 2005 Share Posted July 28, 2005 So, I could rant all day really. I lost 35 lbs 3-4 years ago and have been steadily putting it back on since then. Over the past few months it has gotten to the point where I am officially fat again. Here are my main gripes... THE WORST THINGS ABOUT BEING FAT: - The crap that accumulates in the bottomless pit you call a belly button. What the hell is it? Soap scum? Body nast? Intestinal ooze? Whatever it is, it is gross. Then when you try to get it out and it's all smelly.... God that is beyond gross. - Lying on your side and looking down at your belly as a whole seperate entity. I swear I feel like I could just cut it off with a huge pair of scissors and be OK. Probably goes out a good foot past my hips. OK - maybe 8 inches, but still. - The pimples you get between your legs when it is really hot and the friction between your thighs gets too much. Ewwwww - Looking at pictures in magazines of "overweight" people and realizing THEY AREN'T THAT OVERWEIGHT!!! I was reading Self in the hair salon yesterday and they had a picture of a headless woman in a bathing suit (because really, she should be ashamed) above an article about being 300lbs. There was NO WAY that this woman was over 250. I weigh 195 and she MIGHT have been a bit bigger than me. - Being on the meds that make you want to eat all the time and being all paranoid anyway and always thinking people are watching you eat. And feeling like you have to give them excuses like, "God, I am so hungry, I had a peanut for lunch and a piece of toast for breakfast, so I can justify eating a burrito the size of a small child for dinner..." - OR, NOT eating that much and STILL being fat, or big or meaty or whatever. So that you think people are looking at you and saying to themselves "That's all she's eating? She must go home and eat pints and pints of Ben and Jerry's by herself." - Wishing you could go on coke or speed or something, because even you might kill yourself or spin off into some nightmare Mania-land, AT LEAST YOU WON'T BE FAT. In other words, not caring about your mental health as long as you look good on the outside! Feel free to add your own. ((((bloat)))) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
