Rebel girl, Rebel girl, you are the queen of my world!!
Last year, Rebel Wilson embarked on her Year of Health. She was determined to take control of her life, and she did. Wilson lost an incredible 60lbs in less than a year, and she is the epitome of inner and outer strength.
Rebel Wilson embarked on this journey to become healthier, and she did. While she looks good at any size, she has noticed people are now treating her differently.
"What’s been interesting is how people treat you. Sometimes being bigger, people didn’t necessarily look twice at you. Now that I’m in good shape, people offer to carry my groceries to the car and hold doors open for [me]."
She reached out to her fans and asked them if they experienced something similar, and many shared their experiences. I happened to be one of those who responded.
At my heaviest, I was 250/260ish pounds. I started gaining weight at 8 years old, and I reached the mid-200s when I was 16. Food was my everything, so I ate when I was happy, I ate when I was mad, and I ate when I was depressed. I would polish off 2 pounds of pasta, finish a box of Funny Bones for dessert, and down a 2 liter bottle of coke every night. I didn't workout, and I hated all veggies except corn. No one did nice things for me, such as hold the door open for me. When I got smaller, that's when I started getting attention. When I reached 138lbs, I got the most attention.
The funniest fucking thing about my journey, the asshat guys that made fun of me in HS, suddenly wanted to chat me up.
Even if I thought some of these dudes aged well through the years, I don't have any room in my life for fake ass people. I have people in my life who have treated me the same for 38 years. They've seen all of my good times, all of my bad times, and have never treated me differently. THOSE are the people I accept in my life.
Just because someone has slimmed down to a smaller honey, it doesn't make them more appealing than how they looked before. They may look different on the outside, but they are the same bad ass bitch on the inside. Be a decent and gentle human being to people, regardless of what size they are. Enough of the double standards!
