Whew. I have sat on my thoughts about this for a couple of days now, hoping I would feel differently, but alas, I don't.

I consider you my friend and honestly, after reading this, it truly feels like you despise actual fat people. You, on the other hand, are not even close to 'fat'. But that's just my not so humble opinion. I'm an inch taller than you and when I was 165, I still thought I was fat too. Until I actually GOT fatter and looked back at photos and fucking bawled. I wasn't fat, I was actually quite thin. But I've been told my entire life how overweight I am, so of course, I couldn't see the progress I made. I started out at 260 at my heaviest. Lost a whole damn person and was 155 at my lightest. And because I couldn't see REALITY, I ate my damn feelings and am back at a solid 200.

So yes, reading this hurt. Especially from someone I've admired.

We can agree to disagree and I'll still support you how I can, but this one definitely hit hard in a bad way.

I think, therefore, I write. ccuthbertauthor@gmail.com /Posts may contain affiliate links.
