Bell & Bug, I keep trying to quote you but it won't let me for some reason.
I completely understand how you feel regarding the situation while swimming. There is a big difference between someone sayin "wow, you don't look like you have had kids, you look great" in a positive happy voice. But when someone says something similar with a few words changed and a bit of nastiness in their tone it completely changes.
Again for some reason that baffles me, it's socially acceptable to point out peoples weight if they are skinny but not if they are bigger. I am getting to the point where I feel like saying, is there any other physical attribute of mine you would like to make a comment about today?
Don't feel as though you have to cover up. Even though I am skinny, I hate showing my body, it's not nice to look at. If I could feel confident enough to wear a bikini, I would. Make the most of it
