I'm fat. I'm not obese, but i'm 20 kilos heavier than I'd like to be. Why? Because I eat too much. My bones aren't too big. I don't have some disease. My legs aren't broken, i could exersize if I wanted too.
Why don't I lose the weight? I try, of course. I don't want to be fat. Perhaps I lack determination.
But let me get to my point.
I don't ask for sympathy for being fat. I just ask not to have it yelled at me across the street from strangers.
I mean I don't get on the scales, look at the number and expect a hug, but just because I'm fat does that mean I should be insulted on how I look by people I don't even know?
The OP was merely saying she was upset that her neice hurt her feelings.
The FML doesn't read; "Today, I ate a cake. I'm fat. FML." so stop acting like she clubs baby seals with orphans.
