FML - The follow-up

Today, I told my dad that for Halloween I'm going to be an '80s workout Barbie. He just looks at me and says, "Yeah as the 'before' picture". FML

Ok. I am the OP. I used to 116 lbs and i gained a little weight in college and now I weigh 134lbs. I don't think that is fat and I dont appreciate being called that. But I know by sharing my funny story I run the risk of getting these nasty comments. The nasty comments definitely made my excitement from gettign posted vanished but I will get over it. When my dad said this comment to me I laughed very VERY hard. My dads a funny guy and I didnt take it personally because I love my body and I am comfortable which is all that matters. I posted this story to make other ppl laugh because I think laughter is the best thing in the whole world. I chose this costume because it cost me $10 and i wasnt going to spend $60 smething on something skanky like every other college girl (sorry for those who arent i dont want to generalize). And for the record there is not and never was and spandex involved in the making of this costume. Im wearing an oversized sweater and shorts, tights, legwarmers (etc). Halloween on a budget ppl. So to those who made nice comments, thank you I just wanted everyone to laugh. And to those nasty mean ppl who have nothing better to do than bring ppl down, sorry you think 134lbs is fat and I'm sorry there arent other things that make you laugh besides hurting ppls feelings.

How come everyone assumes, that when someone is called fat, that the OP in question is 300+ lbs. or something? I'm 145 lbs. myself. Some people see me as a fatass that needs to get liposuction, while others wonder if I even eat. It's a matter of peoples' narrow opinions sometimes.

He's just telling you that you'd be better off putting on some brown plastic garbage bags and going as a potato. You can still wear the poufy hair-do and stupid headband, as long as the bag hides them.

Nope, no one wonders anything. The world's health community has deemed you as a fatass. Also a lazy-ass and an over-eater. I go to the gym 5 times a week, you can too, lazy-ass.

Then you're going to be wrong. It was a slight exaggeration with the 6'5" thing, but a woman can be 5'11" and 145 and be a healthy weight. You would have to be very tall to be 145 and have people think you are anorexic. Consider the fact that most supermodels are around 5'11" and 115 - 120.

consider most supermodels have eating disorders, work out for ten hours a day, and are on drugs. 115 isn't a healthy weight for people who are 5'11" or so. read a fucking book, idiot.

Agreed with #9! I guess everyone has a different idea of "fat." If the OP had rolls all over the place, I doubt she'd dress up in spandex... unless she's super-confident about herself. In that case, good for her. Anyway, this doesn't seem so bad. My parents joke with me like that all of the time, and I'm certainly not fat. He was probably just trying to be funny. If he actually hurt your feelings, I'm sure he'd apologize if you told him.
