I am almost five foot nine and have never weighed over 128 pounds since I was in high school. I am almost 65 and so tired of people telling me I’m skinny. I’ve never told anyone that they are fat. That would be offensive.

Somehow, that door doesn’t seem to swing both ways. 🤔

  1. I was called skinny for a number of years but I ate a lot. All this has now changed but I miss being slender as I like to think. As long as you eat properly enjoy being slender.

  2. Skinny..fat…obese…tall…short…in between…who cares! Are you healthy? Are you content with the way you feel? That is all that matters. Love who you are and live your life accordingly. You are the only one living it…nobody else. Being content with who you are is the most freeing feeling in the world…so don’t allow anyone else on earth steal your peace of mind, heart and soul. You are perfect just as you are. Period. 🙏🤗🦋❤️😊🙏

  3. Boy do I remember those days!! No one thought a thing about telling me how skinny I am!…. but you don’t dare tell someone they’re fat! But I’m a late bloomer because after 45 I put on some weight….and FINALLY GOT BOOBS!! LOL!!😄 But now I’m finding it a bit tough to get some of this weight off! Lol!!

  4. As a child my aunt called me skinny. It had such an impact that I wore a sweater in the hot summer to keep my peers from seeing my arms. In reality I was normal size but I believed what I was told. People can be cruel without even knowing it.

  5. I understand. At 5’6″ and 105 pounds until my mid forties, a fair redhead with an odd name (for the time) lol…I was slender and athletic, a horsewoman, and I was the butt of many jokes. I was called the Ethiopian daughter 🙄 Looking back now at 55 and 35 more pounds, I can see it’s a societal issue and folks should put less emphasis on being weight conscious and more to being health conscious. Make up a humourous comeback and move on, that’s what I did…you’ll never change some people but you can control how you react.

  6. I honestly don’t understand why this would leave you feeling heartbroken? Live your life, be you, be thankful for your high metabolism! I’m the same, I just take it at face value because that’s all it is. I’ve never cared about what other people say, nor should you.
