    Before high school, I finally got the nerve to ask a girl for a date, for the first time. Her response was, “Oh I would but you’re too short and kinda fat. Thanks though”.... that *kitten* has stuck with me to this day. I still believe her words to be true.

    Similar experience - a guy I had a crush on for years told my girlfriend he " wouldn't touch my fat *kitten* with a 10 foot pole." Well, that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Lost 50 lbs in 6 months, spiraled into an eating disorder and nearly lost my life.

    Silver lining - ran into said guy a few years later at bar and he couldn't put a name to my face - I looked like a completely different person. Long story short - bought him a drink and he apologized for the hurt he had caused without me even saying a word about it. Proceeded to tell me what a "beautiful girl" I was...yadda yadda.

    *Huggies*

    ETA - much like you I still see an overweight person when I look in the mirror

    I’m sorry 😞

    Some of the posts here are tugging my heart today. Hugs to all for the hurts that have hurt you. No matter how hard individual challenges have been, they've worked together to create the person you are today. You(many of you here!) should be proud of how strong, kind, courageous, and compassionate you are. <3<3

    I love Trader Joes ultra chocolate ice cream. Truth is I've always been crazy about chocolate in almost any form (chocolate bars, chocolate cake, etc..). But I was eating a cup/day until a month or so ago, when I cut back to reduce my weight. I only had a tsp/day of it for the last 5 weeks, and with my other food reductions, and exercise regimen I'm closing in on my target weight of 175 lbs. for my 5' ll' foot frame.

    I was told regularly by someone I was not worthy of love or kindness and I struggle to let go of that narrative.

    Give me a name... 👇🏽
    I will punch them out for you! 💞

    Sadly I have way too many things I can't let go of...some good, some not good. One is cards. I have kept every single card I've ever been given my entire life. My dad will send a birthday card and a Christmas card each year. I don't see him often; last time I saw him was a year and a half ago. Anyway he writes cards that make me cry every time I read them. However, they almost always say the same thing...I love you with all of my heart and I am so proud of you.... Regardless no card from anyone has ever made it into the trash. Never...

    A long time ago a guy I liked rejected me and told me I had a ‘butter face’. It’s amazing how frequently that still comes to mind. I can’t seem to let it go.

    Fwiw you’re totally not a butter face - you were prolly just funnier than him - some dudes don’t like that - 🤷‍♂️

    You flatter me

    Which means I won’t remember your comments at all in a week’s time. Insult me though, those I keep forever 😜

    Back in 2015... my friend and I were making our way into Marshall’s, and coming out was this lady who randomly asked us
    “are you two sisters” we just said no and continued walking.

    Till this day we regret not asking WHY?
