First of all, don’t think I’m talking about any one on this site. This is just a vent from all over the internet that I’ve run into today.
Why oh why do women who are CLEARLY not overweight bitch about feeling fat to everyone and then post of photo of themselves and they are fucking hot?! AND THEN everyone rushes to her side and praises her for being hot when all I want to is be like STFU you attention whore! Go somewhere else and cry about being fat while you easily slide into your size 00 jeans.
I hate it. That’s all. Thank you for listening.

I sympathize, and at the same time I also understand, to an extent, girls who do that. Low self-esteem doesn’t have size boundaries. I’m not heavy by any stretch, but I’m still uncomfortable with my body and sometimes getting reassurance from others that there is nothing wrong with you can go a long way.
Then again some girls really are just attention whores. 😛

Umm because they want the attention!! It makes me sick!! But, I was super skinny in high school, and I will say that anytime I ever made a negative comment about myself, I always got, “yeah right, you look great, you’re crazy blah blah blah”. I never did say I was fat, but there were things i didn’t like, but people always thought that because I was skinny I couldn’t have body issues.

although – maybe they really DO feel fat??? (ok, I’m trying WAY too hard to give them the benefit of the doubt). BUT – my point is – when I weighed 230, I didn’t feel as fat as I was. Now, I’m 150 and I feel HUGE (to the point of feeling like I weigh 230) – but I know that I don’t look it.

@Miss Tattoo: Thank you for this! 🙂

Damn lol. I will admit that I’ve done something like that, but I gained 20lbs. After I posted the pics I realized that I didn’t look any different, but I knew I felt different! Sometimes I think it’s just that a person can feel bigger but not look like it. I knew I felt a lot bigger and my jeans weren’t fitting anymore, but the only things that looked bigger were my butt and boobs.
I will admit that some women do it just for the attention or for the self-esteem boost, which is downright stupid. So I see both sides of your issue!

I hear you!
But even if you are still technically thin…gaining ten pounds (which I did last year) still makes you FEEL bigger. I don’t complain about it to anyone but Fiance though, because I’m pretty sure I would get those STFU looks lol.

Three words: Body Dysmorphic Disorder
I experienced it when I was younger. I was between 110 and 115 (5’7″) and was completely convinced that I wasn’t thin. I’m not sure I would have posted about my weight on a wedding website, but a few might really believe they are overweight.

One of my biggest pet peeves!!

I know some people have body issues, but they need to go get help then. I hate the ones who are on FB posting every kind of bathroom posed photo, photos of them outside in a bikini on their day off, photos of them at the club with skimpy outfits and 10 inch shoes and then one day post of photo of them in some crazy sexy outfit with a caption “Ugh, this looks terrible on me! I feel and look so fat!!! :-(” Then of course, everyone on her facebook notices her tits and ass hanging out so they come to see the hot photo and post things like “OMG Jess! Are you serious!? You are hot!” or “Fat!? Where!? I don’t see any fat!” and “Who called you fat? I bet some fat bitch called you fat because they should all be jealous when you are around! You are HAWT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

@Miss Tattoo: Ugh agreed. Fishing for compliments so annoying. Blah blah you are fabulous, blah blah now go back to eating your popcorn cakes.
I feel fat everyday, yes everyday….and I don’t post it all over the cyberspace.

I see both sides as well. It’s ANNOYING as [email protected]*# when people complain about something non-existant just to get praise. (I’m not skinny enough, my ring’s not shiny enough, etc…ooOMG Oh noez, you’re so hot with such a gorgeous ring and you’re smart and blahblah, etc etc). O.o STFU
But, as a slimmer/smaller person myself, I can totally notice the difference in my weight now as opposed to 5-10 lbs ago. So even if my friends are honestly telling me that they think I look fine/great/whatever, I personally know that 10lbs back I was in much better strength and shape and that’s where I’d like to be again. They met me at this weight, but it’s not the weight that I’m comfortable with, even if it’s totally in the healthy BMI range. I’m not the type to post emo-I-wish-I-was-thinner-pics, though, so I’d hope that I’m not the type that’d annoy ya 🙂
