it annoys me my df equates healthy with skinny and katelyn is 3 months old, I'm still heavier than I would like to be but I'm happy with my health and fitness (not with what I see in the mirror but I'm absolutely as fit as ever) and my df cannot understand that. and he thought me losing 6kg in 2.5 weeks when I had morning sickness was a good thing, he didn't understand why it would upset me to be losing weight. he recognized it wasn't pleasant but he couldn't understand how weight loss could be distressing . because it's so deeply ingrained in him skinny = healthy .

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
Im a whale now and think "meh" and eat some nachos.
Im 178cm tall, and under 70kg I look ill. My sister is the same height, and sits at about 55kg (45-50 when shes modelling) but has a far smaller frame (except for her ribcage, as shes a size 10 bra,and flat chested but a 6 in everything else)
MY healthiest was about 80kg, I trained 6 days a week (and went for a 'relaxing 5km run' on my break day) but I was 17% body fat (my periods stopped at that stage)
I wont be a size 10 again, but my goal is a 14.
And while Ill still be me, I think that I will be less confident when im thinner, as I was before.

So everyone is different and carries weight differently. I just know my body and don't bother with scales too much.

[QUOTE=Benji;6605789]No, it probably has more to do with the fact you look like a model!
Ahh thanks Benji, you're sweet. I don't see myself that way that all though. Tbh i think it is mostly my socially awkwardness and shyness that puts people off...

My brother used to make fun of me for being fat all the time. He was a weedy little thing. "Just stop eating junk Stace," was his line as he mocked me. Of course, then he hit about 21/22 and his body decided to just completely change (as it does with all males in our family), and he ended up fat. He's now fatter than I am. Previously, everyone assumed he was Mr healthy... even though they were well aware of the fact he could drink a whole bottle of bourbon in a night and smokes like a chimney. But you know, he's thin... must be healthy. lol.

I'm thin and have health issues. I don't feel people are nice to me because I'm thin, they are patronising to me because I am SO thin, they feel sorry for me because they don't fit. Or I ask if they have something in a 6 and they snigger and tell me they don't stock that size, ok cool but can we leave the snigger out, I'm trying to buy something in your store.
I truly don't think you can win, I think people get treated differently being overweight and people get treated differently for being underweight. It stinks no matter what part of the spectrum you're on IMO.
