Default I want to put on weight

Possible trigger:


just wondering if anyone else is in this situation- where they've been given a comment with the intent of making them feel better about themselves, but it makes them feel worse

Iím sorry you feel this way. I donít have those feelings about my weight, But I do about my hair go figure. I have a lot of it and itís wild and crazy and silver. Perfect strangers will come up to me and comment. You need to cut your hair, you need to let it get longer....blah blah ....WTF?

Off hand I would say they probably meant it s a compliment. I have never understood why people think itís ok to comment on others people weight, hair, manner of dress, etc. To me it seems intrusive and rude. Again Iím sorry that comment distressed you. you are the ultimate decider of how your body is and how much you can accept yourself as you are.

I have that issue with hair too, actually.

I hate my hair at the moment, it's too long and it gets in my eyes on windy days.

the simple thing would be to just cut it and let it be how I want it.

but I can't

because then it's not the same and it's shorter

guess I shouldn't be the one complaining if doing something about it makes it worse, huh

body issues grrrr!

Too many people out there like to criticize or put others down to feel good about themselves, so compliments are quite rare these days it seems.


I just feel if someone has complimented you then they must have though "wow" you look good. It might not be how you feel on the inside which can effect our thoughts of the outside, but the persons compliment could also be a referee between our thoughts and reality.

In the past people have commented that im almost too thin. In my mind I was doing well trying to eat healthy and exercise and didnít have eating disorder, just eating healthy majority of the time. My BMI was at low end of healthy, but still healthy, 18.5, but healthy. Prefer to be at 19 to 20 BMI. Actually wanted to gain in upper body since arms are thin. Whoís is perfect any way, certainly not Barbies, who are unrealistically proportioned.
