When will imperfection become fashionable?
My brother has started to shame me if I’m eating more than he thinks I should.
My father married a thin woman who got fat and makes no secret of the fact that he found her more attractive when thin.
My mum has had a gastric band put in to get thinner.
My BMI is 26 point something, and I haven’t had any real romantic attention since it was 24 point something.
My sister’s BMI is closer to underweight than anything else. My mother vocalises her worry about my sister becoming underweight.
I’m having a “I want to wear a paper bag over my face” day.
These tend to be worse when you come from a family which is aesthetically attractive and you’re playing catch up on a good day.
