Even though we find out on this forum we are not alone in our thoughts and feelings, it certainly doesn't seem farther from the truth when someone is teased, picked on, bullied, laughed at, nit-picked about and all the other ways people are made to feel bad about their physical traits and/or appearances. I thought it might be interesting or helpful to share any of those experiences we have had with each other to see how wrong we are.
Growing up being and continuing into adulthood being fat, I have certainly experienced more than my fair share of humiliating moments because of it. In 6th grade I remember, during the fat kid's least favorite class, in gym class being divided into groups...and be mindful I am old enough that my class is co-ed...to practice gymnastic moves. And I of course suck at gymnastics. I was put in a group with other boys and I remember them calling me a "f******, fat pig" over and over because I couldn't do a cartwheel.
Anyone else up for sharing some of theirs?!
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
