I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so I figured the Veggie Patch would do. THIS is how you deal with internet trolling, I admire her courage and willingness to explain simple concepts to idiots, hehe.

So many people have self esteem and body issues and get crap from people online just for existing, I thought this was inspiring smiley.gif

This girl is awesome! As a fat girl who's suffered a lot of self-esteem issues for a long time, this was a big pick-me-up to watch.sunny.gif

yes.gif That was my favourite line, I feel like you could ask that question of many people on the internet.

Very inspiring video :)

 

I am working on accepting my size since I have struggled with an eating disorder and became fat because of it, and dieting triggers my ED issues. Seeing someone who's come this far in accepting herself inspires me, and what she says is true. Fat is just a fact, the other things people attach to it like being lazy or dumb is what makes it an offense in their eyes. But that is just their opinion.. Good that she reminded me of that :)

Great post! As I grow up I find I care what people say about me less and less, most people don't know what they're talking about so why should I stress out because they have some stupid opinion about how I should look or act? wink3.gif Some people (especially on Youtube) are just trolls anyway and deliberately trying to hurt you, not letting them do that takes away their power.

That's really cool. I hope that 'haters' will think twice before they 'hate' on anyone else. Idiots. 

Also, kudos to her for the weight loss :)

I can relate to this! I have had an eating disorder for about 5 years now and just now finally learning to eat enough, which obviously makes me gain weight. Accepting that has been hard, but I know I will come out of it successfully! As long as I'm happy for who I am, my size doesn't matter.

It's great that you've both been able to pull through it.

I'm not sure I'd be able to. I've always struggled with my body image, but not really struggled with weight (until now, yikes)

It's tough, but you just have to realize that there is more to life than weight/food/body issues! When I finally realized all the things I had been missing out on by focusing solely on myself, I slowly began to loosen the rigid control over what went into my body or how I looked at myself. It's not easy and I still struggle from time to time, but it's getting better! 

 

Just keep going strong! hug.gif

I loved that video. 

I have lost over 140lbs and I have farther to go, not a ton but in my mind I'd like to be like 120lbs even though I know it's not healthy.  Weight is such a struggle for some people.  I just try to keep thinking about how healthy i am.  I would love to have that girl's self confidence.

She's awesome. I liked her response. :)

 

The internet is quite bizarre. I found this article interesting. I think it's related to the insults she received.
