I am not really mad or anything, but what my guy friend told me today really bothers me and makes me sad... I was really busy this quarter with school (and I've been flying to Atlanta almost every week) that I haven't seen this friend lately. He just saw me last weekend since the beginning of the spring quarter. And today we had chat on the phone. He made a comment that goes like this: "If you are so busy and tired this quarter, how come you are not getting any thinner? You still look pretty chubby to me when I saw you last weekend" (or at least that's what I heard/remember now) Btw, he only saw my face while I was in the car, driving. I have a lot of people who said that I look thinner this quarter, as I was tired (under a lot of pressure in school and with my new business and everything) and I had a problem with my kidney. I mean I don't think I'm overweight. I wear usually a size 26 jeans, sz 2 top and pants, size 0 jacket and skirt. So I'm regular size, at least for Asian I'm regular (but I feel more to the fat side). I have to admit I don't have a stellar body image, as I was overweight as a child and I have been dieting since I was in elementary school. But since high school, I've been having a 'normal' weight, and I have been losing a few pounds in college. What he said really brings me down. I have this round Asian face which I hate. So no matter how thin I am, my face is going to be round and I'm still going to be 'chubby'. I don't know. I hate the fact that sometimes people can be so insensitive. I mean he's a great friend, who say what he thinks. I wish he's more like my boyfriend, who compliment one of our close girl friend even though she doesn't look like she's losing weight or keep his mouth shut if she's putting a few more pounds. I mean my boyfriend is really being sensitive about this and he knows it. Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut then really say what you meant. I hate the fact that his simple comment really bothers me... Why is it that what a guy say to me really affects me? Oh I hate this.. I hate the issue of fat/thin.... Sometimes I wish females are not under this much of pressure from the public. I mean please don't judge us from the outside. I hate when people judge us from our looks, but they do and I'm fully aware about this.
