    GoML (Gripe of My Life): "You're so skinny!" "You should eat that ice cream." "Trying to be all healthy with that salad, huh?" "You need to eat more."

    This is a tough topic because CW makes it okay to pity fat people, but berate skinny people. Both are unhealthy to some degree, and both are manageable and OK to some degree. FUCKING LAY OFF OF PEOPLE AND THEIR BODIES. Body equality, not policing, please.

    I've been under a healthy weight range for most of my life, up until recently, and now even at a healthy weight, I look fairly slim (esp. in clothes). People have never stopped judging me for what I eat, whether it's too much or too little or just enough. Too much says "Good, you need to gain some weight!" and too little or enough is "You need to eat more!". Way to give me body image issues, society. I really appreciate it. I choose to eat healthier now, and that means as little sugar as possible, no grains, and plenty of healthy proteins and fats. Your burnt bread smells bad to me, just leave me alone and I'll do the same for you.

    Okay and GotD: severe lower abdominal cramps. Maybe from the bread yesterday, as I should not be near getting my period (but I think I'm ovulating?). Want to curl up and die, but I'm across the country for training so that would not be wise.

    I got invited to a wings joint for a reunion tonight. Sweet talked the server into a chicken sandwich without the marinade, even though they supposedly come pre-marinaded. (Skipped the bread and potato chips, obviously)

    quelsen: heheh.

    namelesswonder: As the overweight wife of a super-skinny dude, we hear it all. Totally agreed. People love having socially acceptable excuses to be nosy busybodies, and this is one of those arenas where how it really affects the other person never even enters into the speaker's mind.

    Just found out that my father passed away. My aunt made sure to inform me of the level of decomposition when he was found, and my mom used it as an opportunity to guilt-trip me. Well-played, guys.

    Nameless, I agree.... One acquaintance walked up to me and said I should put some meat on my bones. Funny but weird that he felt free to give advice on my body.

    Oh, sorry to hear that. My mom was like your aunt in describing things. I don't get it or maybe we don't want to.

    Internet and phones were down until 3PM at work, and the main software package I use requires an always-on connection to the company server, so I got exactly 1 thing done the whole morning, and exactly nothing done after lunch. Lame. I prefer, you know, being able to actually DO my job at work.
