    I am so disappointed and also very frustrated. When I went to the mall to look for some new clothes (which was by itself already very disappointing for me) I heard some people talking, laughing and pointing at me. That was so horrible. I just couldn´t help myself and so I went to my car and just after having closed the door I started to cry. It hurt me so much.
    How do you deal with these kind of situations?

    You hold your head up high, and feel sorry for them. They obviously have something seriously wrong in their lives, if they get "high" on laughing at other people. You are doing something about your weight hun, and no-one and nothing can take that away from you. Sending you hugs, cos I know from experience, how upsetting this can be xxxx

    Aww, Sam (((hugs)))


    What a horrible bunch of people! I can understand how you may be feeling. The best advice I can give you is, try not to take their negativtiy onto you. What they think/feel about you is nothing to you, they don't know you/love you/care for you and are insignificant in your life - their opinions are their burden, you are the more sympathetic kinder of all of them because you can UNDERSTAND how other people feel.

    Please - don't let this set you back on your weightloss, don't give those people the satisfaction. Instead, keep on going onwards and downwards and take pleasure that they won't recognise you. And when you're doing all of your newspaper and magazine interviews about your amazing weightloss, you can shame them all! (keeps me going anyway!).

    sam,i am so sorry,ive suffered with my weight all my life and its only now that ive realised NO IM NOT GONNA LET YOU ALL TAKE THE PEE AND BULLY ME.
    There the people with the problem and im a great believer what goes around comes around.
    I had an awful childhood with my stepdad he always told me "you will never amount to anything,and your crap blah blah blah"
    I beleived him for many years and punished myself and now i think up yours ,i moved to australia 7 weeks ago with me being the tradesperson,ive just finished a degree im married and got 2 children ,so when you look at where youve come from and where you are YOUR THR WINNER EVERY TIME.
    When your feeling low or unhappy stick your fingers up top them and wonder what they have in there lives that are making them nasty and unhappy.

    My mum divorced him and now hes on hes own even his kids dont really speak to him,and hes very verp poorly.But hey i look at him now and feel sorry for him CAUSE THEIR THE ONES WITH THE PROBLEM.:hug99::hug99::hug99::hug99::hug99::hug99::hug99:

    hi Sam , but are you sure that they was laughing at you , see sometimes people laugh in groups say when out shopping and you happen to look at them and they are looking at you but sometimes we take it that its at us . If it was at you best way to deal with that is hold your head up high and say knickers to them . Sorry you was so upset ! x

    Unfortunately they were definitely laughing about me. I even heard some of the things they were saying and these things weren't nice at all. Thank you so much for trying to encourage me. You are right-I am doing something against my weight. Probably I have to live with this kind of experiences, but hopefully it will change when I will have reached my perfect weight.

    My favourite response to people like that is this:

    I may be fat.
    But you - you are ugly.
    And I can diet.

    <big smile and walk away>

    Usually leaves them a wee bit silent. :D


    Don't take them to heart. They are ignorant. Best to feel sorry for them for being such shallow insensitive unhappy people rathar then to feel sorry for ourselves, as we are at least trying to improve ourselves.

    They aren;t doing anything to change their stupidity and shallowness.

    Hang in there!!! :)

    Well you may be over weight, but you can work on that! They're ugly inside and always will be! Don't mind them, hold your head up high and know that you have the power to change how you look and although they may 'look' better right now, looks aren't everything ;)
