I have no doubt anyone who makes eye contact with me randomly probably immediately feels self conscious or criticized. My dad had that effect, and as a boss, everyone who looks into the office when I am reading something or just idly browsing the internet immediately assumes I am in a bad mood and leaves.

Don't get me wrong, overweight people do have it rough. I have an employee that used to be 400lb a year ago, and is now 300. He said the public reaction was incredible, and he isn't even close to "thin" yet. So it gets propotionally worse.

I mean the stomach slaping thing. Is she really making fun of her? I frequently slap my own stomach when just idle. I also stretch, and do other really random things.

I do feel she is assuming a lot there, but I agree that this sort of thing *does* happen.

I think this blog is silly and instead of making aware that there is a form of bullying going on with adults and strangers when you are overweight, it makes me want to roll my eyes at the lady because she makes herself out to be such a victim (which I don't think she is in a lot of these pictures).

And this is from someone struggling with her weight. I have PCOS and if I eat wrong, I pay for it. And I have just recently found out that not "just counting calories" works. A high protein, low carb diet is the way to go for me and I am still learning. Before this, I starved myself trying to lose weight and would fail because I ate the wrong things (whole grains, for example).

I can say though that people do look at you differently. I lost 65lbs and am between a size 10 and 12 and so many people are so much nicer. Strangers, coworkers, you name it.
