Well, if you can't say something nice, come sit by me!

So Mama Kat has the weekly writers workshop, one that I actually could pick and write about with no problem.

I was always fat. I always had a problem with it. Immature little boys would remind me of my fatness daily which was so annoying. I didn't have a boyfriend until I was 17 and it didn't last but a week mainly because he went to college and never had time for me. My husband was the one guy that had been true to me.

Words that (used) to hurt me:
1) PORK! (that was yelled down the hall in school)
2) fatty, fatty 2x4
3) Wow, I can't believe you can get through the door!

Those were only a few. I wasn't huge but I was chunky and it was a constant reminder throughout my school age years. I will prove them all wrong. My goal is to have my picture in Maxim(the front where guys send in pics of their girlfriends). I am working on it with Wii and alli.

I will not be fat forever, I promise myself and my children that. I also have learned to ignore the immature little boys because they are the ones who are insecure, not me!

Kids can be so hurtful.
How wonderful that you are taking a stand and getting healthier for your self.
Good luck with everything. Maxim will be calling!

Good for you! I'm trying for that awesome after look myself. I was 246 at my heaviest. I've already lost 40 pounds. Just keep up the good work!

The sad thing is that so often kids learn this from what they hear at home. I'm sorry you had to go through that but I'm happy that you're making steps towards being healthier now!

kids can definitely be very cruel!

Keep up the good work with the Wii! :)

Kids suck. Okay, not all the time, but as a teacher I have the privilege of seeing some of the best kids say some of the stupidest, most hurtful, idiotic things ever.

Fortunately, we don't stay middle schoolers for ever.

Ouch. I hurt for you. I just hate that kind of mean. My daughter is in middle school, struggling with her weight right now. Also as an adult, I have as well. Continue to be strong and love yourself. You will get where you need to be, both body and mind.

Peace & Joy

As others have said, kids can be cruel, but if you watch the late shows, the comics often make fun of overwight people in their monologues and therefore , everyone thinks it's OK to do that ---and being overweight myself, it doesn't please me at all.

At one point in my life, I decided that I was going to try not to gain any more weight, but I stopped dieting and decided to be happy as I was. I can't control what others think or do ---but I can control how I react.
