The worst thing I find Benji is that people generally don't care if you lose or gain weight healthily or not - they want to you starve yourself or binge on maccas (depending on whether they want you to gain or lose)... all they want is for you to fit into their version of "acceptable."
I am GLAD that I am acceptable now because it causes me less personal pain at times... I just loathe that people figure I'm worth a lot more respect now than I was less than a year ago. It's rather depressing.
I imagine it's much how a "too skinny," woman might feel once she gains to an "acceptable level." I know the woman next door is talked down to by other school mothers because they assume she must be a junkie to be so thin. She is just naturally thin... but if she gained a little, she'd probably be treated decently, and I think that's really sad.
