I totally get where you are coming from. I’m constantly wondering if the weird looks and being ignored by shop keepers are because I’m fat. I’ve had so many “well meaning”comments about my health that are thinly veiled comments about my weight. I’ve got several chronic conditions that leave me in pain and fatigued but i exercise as much as possible and don’t gorge on unhealthy food. I even tried boot camp for a term and ended up with injuries including a bulging disc! no one can look at anyone else and truly understand their life. I like to believe that being this way helps me to be less judgemental towards others.
