“Go eat all the pastelitos! I wish I could eat like you.”
“Hurry, Thinsprite. Go get some cake! You don’t gain anything anyway!”
My pet peeve. Seriously.
When I hear these statements at work, it’s
usually in a negative way. It could be considered teasing, and perhaps I am just defensive, but it annoys me!
Her statements aren’t meant to be hurtful, but they’re said in a fashion that makes ME understand that this lady thinks that I am just “thin” no matter what I eat and that she mocks me for it. Little does she know how much work I do to maintain my weight!
I am watching what I eat now so that I can get more fit, lose weight/fat and be healthy. Before, I ate what I wanted and worked out, and so I maintained — but it wasn’t healthy.
These types of ignorant comments irk me to hell because…. helloooo!! If you worked out, then you could eat more or lose weight. My metabolism isn’t a magical black hole that sucks in an infinite amount of calories without consequence (although I wish it was).
