i have just been on the school run and bumped into someone i have known for years she was with a girl who up until 4 months ago had been my closest friend we saw each other every day and had been best friends for over 27 years! the first girl said wow shell your shrinking! youve lost loads of weight to which i responded with a huge grin! as i was walking away my ex friend said to the other one "she will always be a fat b****h i only used to be friends with her because she made me look good when we used to go out i used to make her go in the pub first so i didnt look bad" !!27 years of friendship and this is what i get! i dropped the kids off with my head held high then got in the car and cried all the way home! i cant believe a girl i loved with all my heart would say things especially as she knew how i felt about my weight in the first place!
