Must. Not. Freak. Out.

weather: drizzling

userinfoSkippy and I must be kindred spirits. We have the same weight problem; the opposite problem as everyone else in our respective species. We both have trouble keeping our weight UP.

The biggest worry is that birds are really good at concealing any illness or problem they may have. In the wild, if they look sick, they're as good as food. Predators will get them. So, if you see a bird that actually looks sick, it'll be almost too late.

*sigh* She can't keep losing weight forever. She has to have hit the bottom now. Hmm... that's what my Financial Advisor keeps telling me about the market too. =P It's the long weekend, if we're here, she will eat. We should see some gain over this weekend.

Skinny people (and birds) unite!

I'm also a member of the Skippy club -- I eat and eat to no avail. I'm in great shape, I'm very healthy, but I'm consistently underweight. I've stopped worrying about it, but it is weird, and sometimes lonely, to have a problem no one else has (or sympathizes with).

Oh wow! =D As long as my BMI is about 19-20, I'm not going to sweat it.

What I hate most is that no one thinks it's a valid problem and that it's okay to be rude to me about my weight. People wouldn't DARE make equivalent comments about the overweight.

Amen, Sister!

Man, I went into the Student Health Center here, and I left the appointment without actually getting my main health problem dealt with, because the Nurse Practitioner could not accept the fact that no, I am NOT anorexic. Really. Just skinny.

I don't mean to seem unsympathetic to the challenges of life as an overweight person, but I think it is true that people have a bit more empathy/sensitivity in those situations and tend not to feel that it's their right to make comments about one's weight when they're speaking to overweight people.
