On Drynuary Halfpoint Check-In

I think people said it on the original thread? But, that guy is a douche. One article pointing out that maybe some people should drink less year-round is not specifically attacking you, dude.

On Women's Magazine Quizzes: A Digression

@TheGenYgirl I own/ed both these things! I use clear mascara to keep my eyebrows in check whenever I wear makeup. The clear liner was useless, however. They are both available from the Body Shop.

On My History of Being Fat

@adorable-eggplant which is why I keep saying *some* people. I was just responding to the comment above which said it's not a choice ("I just think calling fatness a "health risk" is implying that it's a choice,"). For some people, it is.

@Maryaed my point was that for me, and for some other people, it is a choice. A choice between eating cake, or not.

My weight isn't "easily controllable", I have to work very hard to lose it and even then I don't lose a lot. I wasn't bragging, I was just talking about my body. and I think that's the issue in this thread- people are reading into things that are just not there. I'll make sure never to mention my weight again, in case someone gets offended that they weigh more than me.

@Diaphanous Gown further. There's someone I work with who always complains she's fat, and she's 60 pounds lighter than me. She thinks she is fat, but she's also always telling me off for thinking I'm fat. Just because she thinks that about her body, it doesn't mean she's judging anyone else.

@WaityKatie yeah that's why I said I'm coming at it from a different angle. The article made some people feel bad, it made some feel good. Heavier readers don't get a monopoly on feelings and I don't see why the writer should be made out to be bad because she told her own story. Everyone has a limit of what they think fat is, she is allowed to say she thinks she is fat over a certain weight.

So just to go in a completely different direction from everyone else. While I thought the article was a bit pointless ("I used to be fat and it didn't upset me and now I'm not" er, good for you?), it was nice to see someone who is around my height and weight describing themselves at 'not fat'. It makes me feel good.

@shantasybaby for a lot of people, it IS a choice. I know that if I eat everything I want to eat then I will get fat. I know that if I don't go to the gym I will get fat. But sometimes I have weeks where I eat whatever I want and don't go to the gym...so I put on weight. But sometimes I don't eat much, or sometimes I eat what I want and go to the gym, and sometimes I don't eat much AND I go to the gym and then I lose weight. It's totally a choice.
