okay so all my life ive been called skinny bone jones and other mean skinny names....Ive had two kids one 5 and the other 22 months...I weighed 199 pounds being prego....I now am back to my 125lbs i was before but people still make nasty comments like ugh don't you eat and I feel bad that I guess my body was just ment to be 120-130....but i feel bad and not happy with my body...but i am when everyone is off my back...so ladies how do i deal and is 125 a bad weight at 5'5??
I think that your weight is right on for your height. I have a relative thats 5'4/5'5 and only weighs like 110. Everyone is built differently. She just tells people, when they ask her why shes so skinny "Why are you so fat?". People dont realize that being called skinny minnie is also an insult. Im not saying that you have to be straight out rude, but maybe humble them a little. Im only 5 feet tall so at least you dont need a phone book for everything!
i'm 5'8 and i weigh 125... i have the same problem. however i have a 21 month old and a 6 month old. people are constantly looking at me and making the same remarks. what i do is i be mean right back but not in a rude way, i know it doesnt make sense but this is what i do. when some one says "your so thin" i say "i know (with a big smile on my face)" and i proceed to say, "well at least its better to be thin and eat whatever i want then to be big and be depressed that i cant have that last piece of cake(then i take the piece of cake, or whatever food is in my face and i eat it all right infront of them and then offer them a bit) tey almost always walk away, upset but at least they wont say anything to you for the rest of the day... I spoke to my breastfeeding peer counselor and she told me to tell poeple who make remarks like that "you talking about me and how skinny i am is no different from how you would treat an overweight person" "would you tell an overweight person their unhealthy and have smart rude remarks about them?" again almost always makes them walk away... you have to be proud that your healthy and you eat right, its not your fault that your body doesnt want to gain weight or show that it has fat. as long as you have confidence you will almost always put people in their place... good luck
you should be happy just the way you are. You have two children and your body will never be the same. I gained around the same weight you did when I was prego, but am no where near 125lbs (LOL)!!! If others are hating, maybe they're just jealous.
I think people are wayyyyyyyy toooooooo vocal these days! Remember, this is your body and as long as you are healthy...do what you want! Most people who are this vocal are just jealous they couldn't lose the weight and do what you are doing and look great like you do! Go for it, Girl!!
People are just jealous and ignorant to the fact that it makes you feel bad. I know I would be super jealous! Gosh, from 199 preggo to 125 again within 2 years is amazing! But I would hope I wouldn't say anything unless I was a friend. And even then I would try to be respectful. As an overweight individual, I did not know that people took offence to being called thin and will try to keep that in mind in the future. I have always felt bigger than average, though most balk when I tell them my weight, not elieving it because my weight distributes evenly and I am 5'10 with very large breasts. I know I would be offended to someone calling attention the my chest even though many women covet large breasts. I think if you explain this to friends, they should understand as well.
I don't come on here that often, but this caught my eye. Glad some people could make you feel better Angelsrose. I'm 5'6 and have had 2 children also. Before the children I was 125 also. I gained about 40 lbs with both, but never went back to that wieght. I'm at a comfortable and healthy 145 lbs. Sometimes I think about dieting to get back there, but I'm not worried about it. I also think it's ideal for your height. Don't listen to what other people say....just ignore them. You're beautiful no matter what.
