Story 679

As someone who is “too thin” I’m sick of hearing about it. Yesterday at work we had the weight chair out to monitor residents (care home for people with dementia) and the staff were weighing themselves too so I hopped on to join in and my colleague read my weight and joked “aaah we can’t be friends now!” And she’s a lovely woman and I like her a lot but it stung ! (especially after last week when I was taking my jumper off and my top lifted a bit and she shouted ‘do you want to get any skinnier?!?’ across the floor) I would never pass a comment on anyone else’s body - we were all joining in with weighing ourselves to make the residents feel more comfortable with it and it seemed fun until I was singled out - wish we could just chill with the commentary and projection.
