I was 8 years old and I looked at myself in the swimsuit, the only thing I saw was fat, a fat belly.
The years past by and people told my I was skinny, I remember when I had an internship at a kindergarten and a kindergarten teacher said that I needed to eat because I was so skinny. I started to feel bad about my skinny legs and skinny arms. I am 22 years old and I still hate the fact that even though my weight is higher (because of my birth control) and I’m not “too skinny” compared to internet, I hate that my legs and arms still look skinny.
In a world like this it feels like you’re only allowed to complain when you’re overweight not when your underweight. Why is that so? And why do people comment when they think someone is too skinny when that is as bad as when you comment on someone who is overweight?
Think before you comment on someones body.
Right now I can complain on my belly for being to fat because I drink a lot of beer and my previous birth control made me weight more. What nobody knows is that I’m happy for finally have a “normal” weight since I was skinny since I lost the baby fat.
To say one positive thing about myself is that except that I’m too skinny I look pretty good 👌🏽
