@Cjarv: Anyone who calls a size 6 or 8 woman fat needs her head examined. Actually, anyone who calls another female relative fat is a jerk.

Repeat after me: She’s mentally troubled, there is nothing wrong with you.

Sizes 8 and 6 are not fat at all.  My goal is to be a size 10 or maybe 8 for the wedding.  Never wanna be skinnier than size 8 personally (I am a 12 now after losing abt 25lbs since I got engaged last september).  Can I ask how tall you are?  Not that it would make a big difference because a size 6 is a size 6 and it’s pretty perfect (unless you are one of those that are a size 2 and still complain abt being fat in front of the size 12 or 16 girls lol)


Pls don’t feel insecure!!! My aunts are not even attending my shower or have ever called me since I got engaged to at least congratulate me (I am the 1st one from my cousins from my moms side getting married and one of the youngest ones).

Don’t let anyone put you down or ruin your mood!  You are trying so hard to get in even better shape and you deserve to feel beautiful and happy.  Let them hate!!!!!!

@Cjarv:  Exercise and eating healthy are totally awesome things and I wholeheartedly approve of people trying to build muscle and eat well for themselves.  Not that they should do it for my approval or anything.  😛

But none of this will ever please the people out there who are determined to be the body police.  People like your aunt have the negativity so entrenched in them that if you do somehow squeeze your body into a tinier frame she’ll probably find something new to criticize you about.

Point me at them!!! **Air Punches**

Some people just SUCK! Insecure/Unhappy people need to bring others down to make themselves feel better about themselves. Sadly.

You know you look great and most importantly FEEL great, so screw her!

@thewheelsonthebus: haha oh my gosh I just snorted when I read this. I totally agree with you!!

Girl a size 6 or 8 is amazing!! i would be so happy to be that size! You should be proud of the work you’ve done and tell your aunt to shove it!

My aunt is a huge drama queen and says stuff like that all the time.  She has told me on several occasions “you would be sooo pretty if you just lost weight”.  You just need to ignore people like that and move on.

oh everyone got one of those in the family! and i say, don’t worry about it! as much as it bothers me whenever i hear comments like that, i am reminded by numerous other people in my life that i am awesome as i am! 


p.s. that person in my family is my mother, which makes it hard to ignore the comments sometimes.  her latest one was….when we went shopping, “oh you STILL fit a size large?”

Oh for fuck’s sake. Your aunt is A) an asshole and B) 100% wrong.

You have been taking good care of yourself; you will be glowing, healthy, and gorgeous on your wedding day, do not fear!!
