    People can be very cruel
    I've noticed since i became so big
    You see all my life ive been a skinny size eight
    No fat i resembled a twig

    For five years ive endured comments
    Constant criticism about my size
    They claim my life style was the cause
    And not doing enough excerise

    In a magazine my sister read an article
    Symptoms were the same as my own
    I convinced the doctor to test me
    But the condition was rare, virtually unknown

    A positive test result was sent to my doctor
    No more diets, i was not over weight
    But people can't tell if your obese or very ill
    Remarks still given made me extremely irrate

    A tumour was the cause of my weight gain
    My confidence began to leave me fast
    Surgery was essential, for all hope of a cure
    Then back to the old me at last!

    Unfortunatly things arn't always straight forward
    The weights going slowly i can now see my feet
    People have stopped the hurtful remarks
    Im determined this condition i shall beat!

    I never noticed when i was skinny
    How nasty and cruel people can be
    Some people can't help there appearance
    But support and friendship helps, its a good remedy.

      Thank you for posting this! I had worked hard after my fourth pregnancy to lose the weight and I was a mere 20 pounds off my entire pre-pregnancy weight then I started gaining. I increased my excersizing, even started going to the gym 3-5 days a week to add strenght and resistance training to my regieme.  I had a handle on portions and now I started counting calories for the first time in my life.  Nothing I did worked, the weight kept coming on.
      Finally the doctors told me that I had a problem with my thyroids and would have to be medicated the rest of my life. I didn't like that idea and scoured the internet for natural ways to help it.  None if it worked. Now I have no medical so I can't get the meds.  I still work out and eat right and I've managed to stop myself from gaining any more wieght but I can't lose a pound.  It's very aggrevating and people do treat me different now that I'm not 'skinny' anymore.  I used to roll my eyes when people said 'I have a thyroid problem' and think it was an excuse.  Karma came and kicked my behind for that line of thinking and gave me a thyroid problem! I have learned my lesson but I wish others wouldn't be so harsh either.

      as long as you're healthy, don't bother with other comments, it is good that you lose weight already, keep your chin up!

    I wrote this after having Cushings syndrome, I was fed up with the way people judge others before finding out who they really are.
    Glad you like it!!

    seems to be a girl zone to post even though... who cares about others remarks they will whatever... no one can be perfect people will criticize you no matter how much you do for them or whatever you do so forget about it live your life way you want.

      Unfair judgment  without trail, the cause of lack of confidence.
      Yeah I agree people look at the externals and Judge, but you know your worth. Don't let words kill that flame of passion in you!
      Good work BettyBoop!
