Message from TSB

I just posted this on FB after watching a clip on tv about how a former Miss Alabama got called anorexic because she lost some weight and thought I'd share here so those of you not on FB could see and comment too.

Let me say one thing. Anorexic is not just a word. To someone who has health problems that affect their weight, it's a very huge slap in the face, a knife in the gut. Please do not assume that because someone is skinny or you see them suddenly thinner that they're anorexic. There are many, MANY conditions that affect weight and not just on the heavy side. Some people have conditions that keep them from gaining weight. Some have conditions that can make them drop or gain 20lb very quickly, making them suddenly appear skinny. And while we're at it, please don't envy skinny people. you may wish all you want that you were as thin, but you don't know how hard it is for a skinny person to get better after getting sick. Dropping 5lb for you is a whole lot different than someone already underweight dropping it. 


Someone who's never weight over 105lb

it does suck that people get behind a computer screen and feel that they can shame and comment and bully those that they know nothing about....

Yep, that is very serious stuff.
