No apology needed- I thought you might feel better to know, you are not as alone as you think. Listen in an office, when diets or clothes are discussed - like magic, everyone shuts up who does not claim to be an 8 or smaller. And the people losing weight say they are size 6, and want to be a 2!
The way I see it: Either I am happy with how I am, or I want to change, but MYOB unless your advice is solicited.
When in school I did some part time work doing fancy stitching and beading for a bridal wear company, custom makes and some alterations. Critical, fashion obsessed people everywhere. A 30 something co-worker with a big appetite got so tired of comments anytime she pulled out her lunchbox, milkshakes or David's cookies dozen size bags, she took to whistling "Ain't nobody's business if I do" when she entered the breakroom. A joke only 1 other woman and I got, since it is an old, old blues song.
I felt so bad for a friend a couple of years back. She went into a maternity store, coming into her 5th month carrying twins. She knew her waist was already 12 inches bigger, but when a clerk asked her, oh, are you pregnant or just buying for someone? - she was in tears, and still upset 3 days later. You think I'm always
bigger than the side of a barn? kind of feeling.
It is too easy to get down on yourself.
