hey juddy, yeah i guess it does help some people, but for me it really did more harm than good. i got a "talk" from my mum to tell me i was too fat pretty much - after this though i decided to rebel any thoughts of healthy food/exercise and probably put on more weight lol. i knew in my mind i needed to do something (stress!) but i didn't need anyone pressuring me to do anything. i hate being pressured (unless it's for an assignment, best results are the day (or night) before
hehe) so it really didn't help me though lol. although i hate it now how my family try and buy me junk food
i said no to red rooster tonight, and only had 1 donut the other day
(not all 6 in the pack) haha
Yeah I hated being bullied. I was beaten up a couple of times in the change rooms by someone who had a big problem with my weight when I was much younger (funny how he has issues with MY weight
One of my uncles used to always give me a hard time about my weight. My grandpa made a comment once, but only once and he realised how unhelpful it was. Friends would also pay me out - so much that I refuse to take my shirt off in front of them... meaning I haven't gone to the beach with them before, even now that I'm much thinner!
Bullying causing psychological damage, that's for sure. But what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger
Oh and OMG! Your family does that too?! My dad told me the other day "I'm concerned that you're not eating enough" - this really made me angry. Everytime we are to sit down and have dinner "together as a family" this makes me scream inside "NOOOOO!" because they'll serve way too much food and get all defensive if I don't eat all that's on my plate.
I don't understand why people often have massive plates of food for dinner... same with Christmas. I like to eat bits and pieces over a few hours than a massive piled-up plate of food. Smaller meals over a longer period of time is much better than one large meal.
