... and here's my remedy to the situation.... Usually, I think in the back of my mind, I could buy and sell you ..stare all you want to as I laugh my azz off. Remember, that folks that have to put others down by their comments or even their "looks" is really insecure with themselves.
Chin up, kiddo .. not everyone in the world is so insecure! Look at all of us!!!!!
Kwtrucker, sweetie... you are what you are... be happy and just be yourself! You are a very good looking man and if a woman doesn't like your size, well, she wasn't the one for you anyway. I see absolutely nothing wrong with you or your looks. Have a wonderful day!
I wish I were as confident as some of you and just ignored the looks and the comments, but I'm like trucker... it just hurts and I get so sick of it. Why can't people just be kind to each other... why do they always have to have some sarcastic remark to make at people that they don't even know.
And yes, some of us do it to each other... how can we expect less from people who don't even understand the battle???
I swear aphrodite, anyone who gives you "the look" that a lot of us full and well know .... they have got to be CRAZY ... I wish I was as "big" as you .... they must all be coming fresh from the anorexia farm !! lol
But yes that "look" the one you can get no matter where you go .... its annoying as all hell, so I just poke my tongue out mostly when I get it, and I even got it from a drunkard dero who was happily tucking into his Beer at 8am one morning while I was on my way to work ... who incidently copped a few choice words from me, Its unfortunately something that we cant get away from... and there has been some good advice in these posts, but the bottom line is, these people dont matter to you in your life, its their problem not yours.... just grin and poke your tongue out next time it happens trucker
Oh I agree that "the look" exists, as does people laughing at you in the street. I've experienced it loads of times. But I also know that a lot of it is imagined because most people rightly don't give a dawn about how fat we are.
But because we're used to the idea of people being disgusted we have a tendency to see it where it's not present.
