Gee I'm a 'Skinny Witch' and I am Skinny Shamed by all of my family and friends by zero means am I Anoxeric or Bulimic both of which are horrible diseases I'm tall and slender but you would think I was making those around me eat that whole bag of chips go to a local fast food place and order a big Value Meal with a Large Diet Coke don't forget each that whole pint of Ben & Jerrys. No I don't and my point is I workout I eat relatively healthy and I don't keep eating because I'm bored but you know what I keep my SB mouth shut because I would never want anyone else to feel the way I do when that kind of venom is spat at me No one should ever say anything about another persons weight big, small or whatever it's between you and your Doctor

I don't think you should, unless they bring it up first
