“I didn’t think you were upset because you didn’t lose weight”Posted: November 2, 2011
Not every woman “does a Demi” (not the bump this time) and half starves from sadness.
Some women turn to food for comfort.
That’s what I did.
And because of that my friend’s words stung.
Women can be cruel – and none more so than with a comment like that.
Are we only supposed to prove our grief by shrinking?
Is it some kind of warped competition?
Unsurprisingly, I didn’t speak to my galpal for a while after that, and it changed our friendship in the long term.
I found it insulting that my emotional devastation was being measured in pounds and kilos.
I’ve since lost the post break-up weight, and look better than I have in years.
Still not skinny though.
I like taking up space in this world.
