Went to a concert last night with one of my good friends. She had also invited another friend of hers to join us.
While my friend was buying a tshirt, we were hanging back laughing at some of the things people wore to the concert(hey, it’s halloween weekend, right? haha) and talking about how the heavier girls really shouldn’t do the whole miniskirt and leggings trend because it just makes them look much squatter than they are.
We were discussing the kinds of clothing that people could wear with their body types, kind of like a “what not to wear” type of deal.
Of course then I mention that I need to gain another 15 pounds to be happy with my own weight. And she’s just like, “No wayyy, you look great! If you’re eating, healthy and whatnot, regular meals then maybe being thin is just your natural body figure. Perhaps you’re just meant to be skinny. You shouldn’t force yourself into a negative body image just because people tell you you’re skinny.”
She went on to say that she thought I was really pretty, and y’know… it was just nice to hear someone for once who wasn’t all “my god you’re skinny. go gain some weight.” Genuinely telling me that hey- if you’re healthy and happy – fuck it.
I’m at about 115 now, which is good. I think I’d still like to try and get to a healthy weight of like 130. But it’s nice to think that maybe my body does just suit better at a thinner size. Dunno, but either way- a little compliment from someone really does a lot to up a dull mood. :o)
