I am one quarter Lithuanian. Lithuanians are genetically tall and thin. I'm 5' 8". Last November Of 2009 I was at my "heaviest" at about 140 lbs. In 2010 I decided to try to be more fit, so I started roller blading (I only exercise if it's fun) and lost about thirteen pounds.I felt good about myself. I felt healthier and I was proud of the work I'd done. But I learned a lesson: being thin has it's price.
I cannot borrow my mom's, sisters's, or friends clothes anymore - they are simply not flattering. Random men want to know my name or tell me how pretty I am - which quite frankly scares me. And I am constantly compared to a model. That part was fun, at first, but anymore. I realized that while overweight people are judged, thin girls are, too. A lady I know tells me that my small apitite is the reason I'm thin. Other people act like all I care about is clothes, or that I have no bigger goals in life than getting a job based solely on how I look. And why? Because I'm thin.
People judge me bases solely on how I look - just as much as they judge overweight people for not being thin. Like I said, being thin has a price.
