I ask because it came up on another thread All my life I have been over weight, in my teens I was normally a size 16-18 down to a 12 for a while (another’s size 6 or 8) and then in my mid 20’s I became heavier. Vanity prevents me from saying:smilewinkgrin: My family jokes the most, I tell them I do not like them and there response is that they are only picking and I need to grow thicker skin (PUN ???) I tell them as a defense mechanism and I laugh when other people tell them, but not when my family does because they should know better Is it a contradiction to find them inappropriate but yet you still laugh? What are your opinions?
