Obese is 20% or more overweight.  “Fat” is an opinion, but obese is a clearly defined thing.  Maybe she should take a basic middle school health class so that when she is being bitchy and judgmental, she can be at least as informed as a normal 13 year old.

An old friend of mine was visiting from my hometown this week and she’s always been very thin and stands at 5’9.  I’ve gained about 30 lbs in the last 7 years and she wouldn’t make references to me directly, but would always brought up large people.  Complete strangers walking down the street and she would make a comment about their weight.  I have no idea if it was because she noticed how much weight I gained and was unsure of how to react, or if she really has a problem with bigger people.  In any case, I think some people just have no filter when it comes to things like this, especially when they’ve never been more than a size 5/6.  

Ignore her.  You said she was a girl you went to high school with, so it sounds like she isn’t or wasn’t ever a good friend.  She obviously doesn’t know where to draw the line, and doesn’t care about hurting people’s feelings.

Wow, she clearly doesn’t understand body types! I’m a 2-4, and there are women who are a size 10 and thinner than I am just because of our respective body types.

Size 8-10 is my healthy size too. I’m 5’7 and usually hover around 140lbs.

Screw her.

I do not agree with your friend. She is narrow minded and has this idea of what the perfect body is, and she would be disgusted with more than half the people, men as well as women, in America. There is an ideal weight for every height and body type, and you do not have to be a super model to look and feel beautiful. What a load of garbage.

Well, she obviously isn’t a doctor so don’t worry about her! She’s probably just self conscious.

Its silly.  Lets face it, if you are really short and a size 10 you might be grossly overweight.  If you are really tall, and a size 10 you might be super skinny.  Healthy is a whole other story, and can’t really be determined by the tag in your pants.  She just doesn’t have a clue!  Everyone is just so different and its impossible to make that statement true based on pants size.

Glad to hear somebody gave her a dose of Truth!  Sounds like SHE is the unhealthy one, with some terribly wrong ideas about healthy female bodies.  Yikes.  It’s almost kind of sad.  So sorry that you had to deal with her, though, I hope you didn’t let it bother you too much.

some people suck. honestly. i was once told that i should hire a personal trainer because i’m 5-10 pounds over the limit of ‘normal’ and ‘overweight’. according to who? the trainer at the gym asked me why i was even there because i was fine.

there is nothing wrong with a size ten. yeesh.

Size 10 would be my IDEAL size. I was TINY at a 12. Some people just don’t get it. That’s why there are other ways – besides sizes and weights – to judge if you’re obese. Height, muscules, and bones make a difference. When I was a 12 I could SEE and FEEL my hip bones at all times. They WERE THAT WIDE! I held up my friend’s 6’s to me and they were smaller side to side than I am hip-to-hip! People are insane. Don’t let it get to you.

Sounds like someone with an eating disorder of some sort. Or possibly she’s just really stupid.
