Well, you have to remember that when people say things like this it is in no way aimed at you. Everyone has their insecurities, and people who are skinny are just as likely to feel insecure about their weight as people who are not.

I can understand how it’s frustrating, but it’s not directed at you in any way, and it’s really just her being uncomfortable with something about her body.

I’m right there with you with wanting to slug girls, who in my opinion, are nowhere near fat. But I don’t do it because it is my opinion, and there opinion is theirs. Fat is subjective. What you might consider chubby, others may think “ideal weight for me.” I know that if I let something affect me, there is more to it than annoyance. Often it is because what they are saying/doing is something that I don’t like about what I am saying/doing.

I’m probably one of those girls that annoys you. I’m a size 00-2 (although I’m only 5 feet) and still complain when I feel like I’m having a “fat” day. Like Cardigan said, though, my comments are in no way directed at people who are larger than me; just because I feel I am chubby doesn’t mean I think those larger than me need to lose weight!

Take it with a grain of salt, most women are insecure in their bodies.

I am probably one of those girls…except I usually only say it to my best friend who is smaller then me (because I don’t want to get a hard time since I’m small and also don’t want to offend anyone). I am 5’6 and a size 0/2 but I still have fat days! I still feel self concious after eating pizza or donuts and then putting on a tiny bikni, etc

I don’t think *most* people who say that mean it personally at all. It is annoying if people say it everyday/constantly but sometimes everyone has a fat/not pretty/blah day

Oh God. Yes, I hate that! I’ve always been overweight. Always. I’ve done so many diets in my 27 years, it’s not even funny. I’m currently losing weight in an non-diet way (yay!) and I feel good about it, but let’s just say that years of yo yo dieting through adolescence (metabolife at age 12, atkins at 14, south beach at 19, etc.) has completely f-ed up my metabolism. That being said, I once lost 60 pounds (not in a good way!) during college. At my smallest I was a size 14. My roommate at the time wore a size 4. She saw me lose weight and became horribly jealous. She started doing the same diet I was on, and complained when nothing happened. She’d ask me what I did to make my stomach look so flat. I told her, “nothing, I just have giant boobs.” She’d make a huge show of having only salads, peanutbutter smoothies, or frozen peas for meals. She was crazy. Honestly, I was still struggling to get to a healthy weight and to hear her complain about how fat she was all the time made me think I’d never get to a healty weight. I’d like to think it wasn’t about ‘me’ but in truth I definitely think that she would say things about her own weight to me to remind me that I was still heavier than her. I’m pretty sure it made her feel better that even though I was losing weight, I was still fatter than her. We’re not really friends anymore, to say the least.
