Some guy at work made a fat comment about me in our meeting this morning. It was offensive enough to put me in tears, but not so blatant that I can call him on it. I am so tired of being the brunt of fat jokes. I am so tired of being fat. I thought I had the fat thing licked a year or so ago, but I've regained just about everything I've lost and I've given up on hoping I'll ever lose it again. If I had made a comment about his nationality (he's Vietnamese) everyone would have jumped on me, but it's perfectly acceptable to poke fun at fat people. After all, we bring it on ourselves. We weren't born fat, right? If we don't want to be laughed at and made fun of we should just lose the weight. Or, we can just accept that we're pathetic losers, which is the route I'm taking.
