I just really needed to get this off of my chest.
Hi, I'm a junior in high school who's still trying to drop about 20 more pounds. Last year, I was at my highest weight (230 pounds at 5'6...ugh) and since then I've slimmed down to around 160. Most of my friends and family have been positive about the changes I've made, and for that, I'm grateful.
In fact, I feel so happy and free now that my body is cooperating with me. I've been trying to remain peaceful and happy, and I've attempted to treat others better. However, one of my "best friends" (who I've decided to ditch from now on) almost ruined my progress.
Everyday when I would come up to her locker, she would stand there, give me a look up and down, smirk, and whisper something to the girl beside her. At this point, I already felt like crying. She proceeds to tell me (with the biggest "I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU!" grin) that...
1. I have toothpaste/stain on my shirt
2. I "smell like onions" (which I believe she made up, because everyone else claims that I smell like candy :P)
3. My pants are baggy or ugly
4. My hair is frizzy/messed up
5. My makeup is smeared
6. My necklace is crooked and too sparkly
7. My ponytail is "weird and ******ed" (Seriously?)
This girl used to be such a great friend. Honestly, I know she is just jealous. You see, this "friend" used to be the skinny, popular and pretty one of our group. But she's actually gained a good deal of weight in the past year. As I lost weight and got healthier/happier, she gained weight and lost her own self-esteem, apparently. It's sad that I have to lose a once good friend over this, but I'm not here to be her punching bag.
