the ‘big’ deal



Now I don't know if you look at my Tumblr blog at all, but over the past 24 hours or so I have had what feels like a flood of messages on there regarding my weight, the first being:

"you're a bit fat :/ some of the clothes you post don't suit you and make you look fatter. sorreh"

Now, normally I would have just deleted this and carried on with my life. The thing is, it really worried me - and still does - that there is a type of person that actually spends their time writing these kinds of horrible, degrading messages to people that they most likely don't even know. After I posted my response I then received an influx of really nice messages from people, and of course a few bad ones. Somebody tried to tell me that I was trying to impress people (?!) by saying that I was a size 10 at 5'5" (both wrong anyway, idiot) and that most people my height are the same size or smaller. Not only is this completely untrue and hurtful to those bigger than myself - but I have never tried to impress a single soul with anything to do with my size/weight.

The area has always been a difficult one for me to touch upon - at one point in my life food was my worst enemy and would more often than not end up in the toilet bowl. It got to a point where I blacked out in the middle of town and felt faint nearly all of the time, and it just wasn't worth it. Even though I've put on the best part of 2st (maybe 20lbs) since I've been with my boyfriend (2 1/2 years) I feel I am healthier - and happier - with a little extra meat. I just think it's a shame that others feel as though I shouldn't be comfortable or happy in my own skin. I cannot grasp the flow of thoughts inside the head of a person like that - how you could even say a size 8/10 is 'fat' baffles me! They also tried to tell me that my 'middle is alright but my arms and legs are awful'. I don't exactly love my arms or legs - quite the contrary - but seriously, it's not like they have to live with my limbs! They are mine to deal with! Mind-blowing.

This post really isn't about getting people to feel sorry for me, I couldn't care less about what 'anonymous' thinks. After all, if they can't give you a real name, they don't count as a real person. I just dread the thought of somebody larger - or even the same size as me - getting the same kind of messages as me, and really taking them to heart. Who cares what size you are? Everyone is different. Really, the only thing that should make you want to change your body, is your health. Not a boy, not your friends.. and most certainly not a bunch of spiteful comments telling you how 'disgusting' you are.

I'm really sorry this post is so long, there was so much more I could have said but I didn't want it to get a bit tl;dr! It was nice to get so many comments telling me not to listen to the hate - which I don't anyway - but to be honest I'm just glad it came to me and not someone who believes everything they read on the internet.

  1. Glad you can tell the comments are rubbish, you're definitely no where near 'fat'! Being happy in your own skin is sadly something some people just can't grasp. xo.

  2. It's horrible and disappointing that people feel the need to lash out for literally no reason at someone they don't know. I find it very weird tbh. I also find it massively weird that they pick on someone who CLEARLY isn't even approaching overweight. As someone bigger than you I can say it doesn't make me feel bad about myself, but that may be because I'm that bit older and wiser (yah right).
    I've had similar eating issues to you in the past, and I think it's great that you can open up about it now that you are better.
    I think you look great Emma, as does pretty much everyone who reads your blog. I'd kill for your figure! You're exactly right about the anon status- you don't exist without a name!

    Hugs.

  3. As long as you're happy and comfortable in your own skin, that's all that matters. Confidence is your best accessory, so wear it well! Everybody has different shapes and sizes, it's just who we are. I'm about 5'10'' and I'm proud to be curvy. I'm not fat, but at the same time, I know I'll never be a size 6 or 8 (unless we're talking US sizes) but that's fine because I have hips and a bum, and that's the way I am. Everyone has insecurities. Be proud of what you are and don't let them make you feel bad.

    Side note: I think your blog is great!

  4. I wrote a little bit about weight yesterday but I do not understand why people feel safe saying such horrible things on the internet when they wouldn't say it in real life! I think you should be proud of who you are, as you clearly are, and ignore these ignorant people. You always look stunning (I especially love your hair!) and it is clear that Anonymous is unhappy with something about themselves to critique someone else so harshly! Sorry this has got a bit rambly but I think you are gorgeous and clearly a nice person which is clear from your concern for others :)

  5. Wow. Can't quite believe someone would say that. Have they really not nothing better to do with their lives?

  6. I can't believe how rude some people are! A person's weight has no bearing on them as a blogger, so it's not even a topic up for discussion when posting a comment.

    Emma, you look fab as you are. You're outfits are always an inspiration, so keep going as you are!

  7. I think you are absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and I'm glad you're strong enough not to listen to people like that. And if they sit at a computer all day writing mean comments about people, imagine what they must look like! People are only mean about other people and make hurtful comments because they hate their own lives and themselves. They are just jealous of what you have!

    I also just want to say that I love reading your blog and your twitter updates, you have so many interesting things to say and I have found so many great websites for shopping etc. because of you, so thank you! and by the way, your dog is so cute! :)
    I am anonymous on here because I don't have a blogger, but my twitter is @9SBA if you're interested :)
    Keep doing what you're doing, girl, it's great.

  9. Jealousy is the ugliest trait a person can have, and unfortunately so many females have it by the bucketload.

    Ignore the tripe, hun :)

  10. I'm actually the same size as you are and when i go shopping here sometimes even the size S is too big for me so i don't know how much skinnier a person could be! I think you're beautiful and that's something cooler than being size 0 (everyone can stop eating but not everyone can be pretty) and i'm sure that those people that said those nasty are awful (at least on the inside).
    I really liked your post because i think that every girl has weight issues (i have HUGE ones) and it's nice reading everyones point of view.

    ReplyDelete
  11. ugh ppl like this seriously piss me off - i got called disgusting the other day on my blog - if your think im that awful why waste your time watching, reading, checking up on my blog! some ppl are just WEIRDOS! oh and LOSERS xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't understand why this person felt the need to comment on another person's weight when there quite obviously isn't an issue. As someone who has struggled with their weight and been a range of sizes I find it disgusting that people out there say such dangerous things. The fact they've put 'sorreh' on the end of it just makes me want to sit and consecutively eat five Big Macs whilst looking up at them on their high horse. I've been horrendously underweight and I know how damaging such comments can be and I'm sure you may have suffered doubts because of this idiot. I'd just like to point out you're absolutely beautiful and my opinion goes beyond whatever you weigh. Comments like that idiots are damaging. It can often make people put their own lives into such idiots hands. I hope they're reading this and realise what a small minded twat they really are. If not, they can come over to my blog and discuss my weight with me. Hope you're okay sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I was in shock when i read that someone had said that to you! You are not in any way fat! I hate people who write comments like that. It's almost 100% anonymous and so pointless. Its nice that you wanted to make sure others didnt get offended from it :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Fair play for answering that nasty remark.
    Sadly there will always be someone who thinks it's okay to pass comments on your appearance, it's not nice and uncalled for.
    You aren't fat in the slightest and I'd be more than happy with your figure.
    We are all different, it's what makes the world go round.

  15. gonna punch anons heads in ain't i - they probably had to lift their chins from their keyboards to write those negative comments towards you emma! literally cannot understand how anyone can see you as fat, AT ALL. ridiculous xxx

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really don't understand why someone would bother to write something like that. I just dont get it.

    I havent had any horrible comments on my blog yet but its only been going for a couple of weeks and I have turned off anon commenting. Like you I dont care what people think but it will still be there at the back of your mind even if you dont take it to heart.

    I think you look great and dress well which is why I follow your blog. God knows what your anon would make of me at a size 12, god forbid! But I am happier now than when I had to exercise for 4 hours a day to stay as a 8/10.

    People really need to get a life!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've met you IRL and I can verify that you are a total stunner! If I could have a figure like yours I'd be a very happy girl.
    I honestly think you should disable anon comments. I have and I've never received a heartless comment like that. It makes it too easy for anyone (usually someone you know in real life being a dick) to get to you. Not worth it.

  18. Don't take any notice these people leaving these comments are clearly jealous of you and we all know jealousy is such an ugly trait!!x Love the pic of u with the ben and jerrys! I mean if ur fat then how r the rest of us meant to feel x u have a great figure, lovely clothes and seem like a genuine girl so stuff these negative comments if people don't hav anything nice to say then don't say anything at all!!!x

    ps love ur blog

  19. Forget the haters, cause haters gon hate! The only thing that matters is how YOU feel about yourself, so don't let their opinions turn into YOUR opinion. I think the way you addressed it was good. Thank you for this post =)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh gosh, anonymous commenters are the worst! You're not "fat" at all, and I still hate the fact that there has to be acceptable weights etc. In my eyes, if you're happy and healthy, there's no issue. Weight is always a horrible issue for people to bring up, especially if it has been a sensitive topic before. I personally think ya look great Emma ;) - Gotta love how a simple winky face makes everything inappropriate haha! xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. It is ridiculous that people feel the need to let their horrible opinions known! Who the hell cares if you are a size 8 or a size 28, as long as your happy and healthy it shouldn't matter one bit, please don't take these horrid comments to heart because you should be proud and happy to be you!
    not everyone is fortunate to be a size skinny naturally but i know a lot of people that would always prefer to be a healthy size rather than a skinny size that constantly consumes all their thoughts and life!
    just be happy, and don't let these nasty people with nothing better to do get the better of you :)

  22. I have absolutely no idea whatsoever what possesses these 'anons' to say such horrible things. You're no where near fat, as you know, and to suggest that you are is absolutely ridiculous.

    I can never understand why people feel the need to comment on other peoples' weight. It is absolutely none of their business and has nothing whatsoever to do with them, so why do it? What annoys me most is that things like that said to the wrong person can result in horrifying consequences. I have had serious issues with my weight in the past, being severely underweight and I felt absolutely terrible - but then I was criticised for being too thin! You cannot win with these people so I just suggest we take absolutely no notice of them whatsoever, I don't think it matters what size/shape/height/weight you are as long as you are healthy and happy with yourself. I hope whoever wrote that narrow-minded, obviously spiteful and completely untrue comment feels pretty stupid and ashamed of themself right now. xx

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't believe people would have the nerve to say something like that to someone they don't even know. I really hope you don't take it to heart. I know its easy enough to say that you'll brush it to one side, but after being bullied about my looks for years it is really hard to forget what people say. All you need to do is keep your head high and remember that your absolutely stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm an anon because I don't have a blooger account, but anyway... you're stunning, not a tincy bit fat. Hell, I'm 5'5 and a size 12 and don't even consider myself fat.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Pftttt some people should be ashamed with themselves, your clearly not fat at all. As long as someones ok with their weight then it's nothing to do with anyone else. Great post, well written xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Some people just like being mean, to be honest I'm always baffled when you say you don't like your arms or something because to me you are in no way larger than average size 8-10 is small! Some people are ridiculous, anyway your blog is about your clothes - not your body!

    I'm really glad you don't let this affect you, you are a really beautiful girl :)

  29. Some people are just outright idiots & are jealous of good things & it pretty much sums it all up when they post as 'anonymous'. More like 'chicken'! Well done for making a well articulated stand!

  30. I think people are so used to seeing people that weigh 80lbs in the media that when they see a normal sized person they feel the need to call them fat. It's a shame. I love your style and I'm glad to see someone my size look fabulous in the clothes they wear. I'd rather see clothes how they'd look on my short frame than some tall, skinny model.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Amazing post hun- really like the photos to go with it :)
    I recnetly did a post regarding weight, and got so much amazing feedback.
    Firstly, what size you are or aren't doesn't matter! You look bloody amazing in your clothes, and I am in ore (sp?) of you with every picture you post! But for the record, I do not think you look fat at all, you're lovely.
    The past 2 years I've put on SO MUCH weight, and I am struggly to stop, I just can't stop eating! But I know after the new year, Im going to get on it. I wanna be back to 'me' again
    I think if you are happy, then thats all that matters! +size ladies look amazing, and as long as they are happy that is all that matters. If you were a stick some one would have said something too, so just lift you head high & smile

  34. I really pity the people who directed those comments to you, my mum always taught me to hold my tongue unless I had something nice to say. What a shame they weren't taught the same!

    Really enjoy reading your blog, and I, for one, think you are a beaut xxx

  35. It's amazing the amount of haters out there. So big and clever making snide remarks behind the safety of their computer screens..
    I'll tell you something now, none of them would dare say a word if it was face to face. And how they have to remain 'anon' how very brave of them. Pffft.

  38. I don't usually comment on your blog, but I felt it was necessary this time. I think those comments were really vile. Different people have different ideas of "fat" and "skinny," but that doesn't really excuse the type of comments. Like you, I won't jump to the conclusion that they are "jealous," but it really reflects the attitudes of our society, doesn't it? People who lose weight are praised whereas those who gain are looked down on. I might say this person is offended because they have an issue with how comfortable you are with yourself, for daring to be so-called "fat" and still fashion blogging. That's the impression I got. And that's really their own problem and not yours because you're obviously normal. And yeah, maybe you mention how you don't like your arms in some post or another, but every single person has their body hangups. Anyways, this was a good post that covered a sensitive issue and I quite enjoyed reading it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You look amazing, and Ben & Jerry's is too good to even consider not eating! x

    ReplyDelete
  40. those people really really worry me. It kind of mkaes me sad. Mostly angry but also very sad.

    What is so wrong in their lives that they spend their time putting down girls they dont even know. And what is so confusing is that 99.999% of the time they are saying total rubbish. Like calling you fat even though your a 8/10, the smallest size (in normal shops, not kate moss's range ;)), saying morven (at cats and rocking chairs) is ugly when clearly she is stunning etc etc. It makes no sense at all.

    The world would truely be a better place if those people directed their anger at people who actually deserve it.

    Just total insanity!!

    Formspring is the worst. It is just girls (I imagine) going round insulting randomers just to make their miserable lives seem better.

  41. like alyse, i don't normally comment, because i'm typically a silent reader, but i had to now.

    you are lovely as you are and seriously, just ignore those idiots. i mean, really, it's tumblr and tumblr has gone to the dogs lately. a lot of idiots lurk on there, and yes, they are there to hurt you and make unnecessary mean comments because they are insecure themselves and/or can't deal with people that look different from them.
    formspring is really terrible, honestly. it gives people a chance to be just plain nasty and gives them a false courage.
    in the end, you can't let them have the satisfaction of knowing that you took their comments to heart, because in the end its who you are as a person that matters than what you look like :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. SO glad you're not taking these ridiculous comments to heart. You have a gorgeous figure! And people calling your legs & arms 'fat' just makes me laugh (they aren't even!), i'd rather have 'chubbier' arms & legs than none at all!
    It's actually sad to think what girls think they're bodies should look like or what size they should be, with all these itty bitty women all over the media & such. Wish they would realize they're beautiful no matter the size of their jeans! I agree, losing weight & such should be for you & your health - not for anyone else!
    Really lovely post Emma, Chocolate Fudge Brownie B&J's is my fave :) <3 xo

  43. What sort of people are so full of spite (and have the time!) to write things like that?? I'm glad you haven't taken it to heart, what a bunch of chumps.x

  44. YOU ARE NOT FAT, people are vile and spiteful. If you are a size 8-10 and they think you are fat, fuck me at a size 12 they must think I'm a house!I know what you mean, about if someone got it and they weren't as strong as you. I got the most horrendous email last week, really vile, but I just deleted it, I'm quite a strong person who doesn't give a shit, but if someone who wasn't so strong had got it, it would of really effected them. The pressure on young girls nowadays is so vast anyway, God knows why these fucking twats have to make it worse. Xxxxxx

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd like to see those people who said those things post photos of themselves and be judged. You are beautiful! Calling you fat is absolutely ridiculous and laughable.

    So glad you did this post. :) you and your blog are amazing! xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  46. Christ. Who's business is it to tell anyone they're fat?

    I seriously want to say to people sometimes 'DID YOUR PARENTS NEVER SAY TO YOU "IF YOU'VE NOT GOT ANYTHING NICE TO SAY THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL"'. And all these people that comeback with the 'I'm just being honest', well did they never get taught about the art of being tactful. I think not.

    It's bloody disgusting that people judge others like this. You blatantly put your pictures up to show people what you're wearing, not to ask people if you look fat! I'm so glad you don't care about what they say, Emma. Especially as you've had problems with food in the past! I think you look beautiful and perfectly in proportion.

    And what's with the (spazz spelt) sorry at the end? Are they sorry? Sorry for what? Sorry that this comment might have made you go and chuck up your dinner? Sorry that this comment may stick in your mind for the rest of your life? I just think people who say things like that are really thick, to put it bluntly. They have no idea how easily influenced young girls are these days and the pressure there is for some of them to look 'thin' cos in their eyes that's what looks good and that's what 'ok' and people who make comments like this are only adding to the fuel.

    I could rant on about this all week long so I'll stop now cos I'm sure I've just said what everyone else has already said, but kudos to you and much respect for doing this post cos it definitely needed said and you are the ultimate role model.

    P.S that is my FAAAAAVE ben and Jerry's! I could happily sit and eat a whole tub in one sitting.

  47. Wow, that's sick. Besides the fact that it's not true at all... why would anyone say that? Especially to a person they don't know? I wonder how many people take the things they're being told on the internet to heart and end up having eating disorders. Just because of some idiots being rude. :(

    ReplyDelete
  48. oh darling, i concur with every one of the above comments. I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said, but hell to the NO...you are not fat and it makes me so sad that people can shamelessly go around and casting this type of nastiness around. you are a beaut, end of xx

  49. Honestly, I read so many messages on my dashboard over at Tumblr that abuse certain people about their physical features. It's horrible but I always take into the account that anonymous people that send hateful messages must be at such a low themselves they have to judge and bring others down to feel a sense of happiness, even if that means the person recieveing the hate feels shit about themselves. The only possible reason I can think of as to why someone would comment on your weight anonymously is because they're so insecure about themselves. If they weren't sending you a message as an anon then they know they'd get ripped to shreds about their own appearance.
    Who really cares what weight you are in the real world, it's the personality that wins over people. As long as a person's not obese or stick thin, which can lead to serious health problems, then it doesn't matter one bit. You're neither of them. We can all tell you're so confident with yourself and I love that about you as you're never bringing yourself down. You're happy in your own skin, whereas the anon is clearly now as they would not have took the time out to send you such a rude message. Don't let horrible people get to you.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Really glad you don't take these horrible comments seriously!!!
    People always find something they don't like if they look hard enough. When I was younger I had a lot of problems with classmates telling me why I don't fit into their idea of how I was supposed to be and what I was doing wrong. i.e. liking school, playing the clarinet and not smoking.

    I think it's worse on the internet as everyone can just go to your site and leave horrible comments they wouldn't have the courage to say IRL.

    So...all I wanted to say: You're gorgeous!
    And I'm a size 12 ...probably I should go to the camping shop and buy me a tent to wear in their opinion :-)))))))

  51. That's terrible that people say such cruel things. You are absolutely beautiful. It's hard not to, but don't take it to heart. If you're happy, then good for you. You don't need to meet anybody else's standards.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It's absolutely ridiculous somebody said that to you, but it's worse that people feel the need to say that to anyone in general. I'm glad you haven't let it affect you, because you look tiny on your photos and it completely confuses me how anyone could even consider you to be slightly 'big'. As you said, a size 8/10 is slim!
    It's no wonder there are so many girls today suffering from eating disorders, something which has affected a few of my close friends.

    It's very sad, but I'm glad you wrote this post as it carries the right message. :)

  54. It has always baffled me how people can be SO unbelievably low, to take the time out, to leave such degrading comments. It's a psychologists field day. I know i'd certainly love to get inside the heads of the "anonymous" internet cowards, just to understand what the hell is going on in there. You're right, it's mind blowing...and a serious shame.
    You have a gorgeous figure, and to be honest, comments like that are clearly just jealousy.
    It would be interesting to know what size anonymous was, or even if they'd like to upload photo of the days for others to judge?

    Don't for one second let spiteful comments like that get to you, you are beautiful :)

  57. People who post comments like that make me angry. There is no need to say that to someone as they are only out to hurt peoples feelings to try and make themselves feel better.

    They are obviously jealous of you and they are too much of a pussy to show their name.

    Don't listen to them as they are obviously people who have very warped views of a healthy lifestyle.

  58. I'm not sure I've ever actually commented on your blog but I've been a reader for a few months! *hi!*

    I definitely feel the need to comment here and say that you are in no way fat. Not even close! I know you know that and I know about 60 other people have already told you that, but I just felt the need to chime in too! I've found that people just like to hurt other people on the internet for some strange reason, and I know I've read that you dislike your arms so I think someone just latched on to that thinking that it would bug you. Jealous, jealous people who wish they had your pretty skin and your gorgeous style!

  59. I think its just so horrible that some people actually spend time out of their lives to write nasty, hurtful comments and try and put someone down. Obviously haven't got a life of their own.

    "After all, if they can't give you a real name, they don't count as a real person." My favourite bit!! Too right! xx

  61. People on the internet can be so rude! It's such a shame because they seem to be hating on a lot of good bloggers recently and half of the things they say don't make any sense at all. You are in NO way big. It's ridiculous, you're right to have the attitude that you have because they are either incredibly stupid or bitter or both.

  64. How anyone could come out and say such things to you is beyond me, you're absolutely stunning just the way you are!

    I'm just so glad you choose to ignore them and look down on the people that attempt to make fabulous bloggers like yourself feel like crap..

    Much love x

  65. "Really, the only thing that should make you want to change your body, is your health. Not a boy, not your friends.. and most certainly not a bunch of spiteful comments telling you how 'disgusting' you are. "

    AGREED !

    Btw, i think you're beautiful.
    Congrats for your blog from a curvy (and happy+healthy) girl ;)

  66. Don´t worry about that at all. I had some eating issues in the past as well and after, when people pointed out that I got "chubby" or that I´ve put some weight on, I used to take it really personally and a couple of times I was pretty close to starting all that horrible eating disorder circle again. However, I realised at one point, that they can say whatever they like and that I know better myself that being a bit what they call "chubby" but what would I probably call "curvy" for me means being healthy and happy, because I just don´t have that 180cm and 50kgs body. I´m tiny (a good couple of cms shorter than you) and I´m now size 8. For me, it´s nowhere near skinny but for others, as I often hear, it is pretty thin and to be honest, I have no idea where I´d get my clothes if I got thinner - maybe kids section?:))
    Anyway, my point was don´t worry at all about people like that. As long as you´re happy in your body and you can point out parts you love about yourself, just stay the way you are. Those haters are just people that feel that constant need to hurt the others and weight, obviously, is the easiest yet the most painful place to dig into when it comes to girls.

  68. Clearly they are bat shit crazy!

    Try and shrug this off. It's difficult but it is all based on their insecurities & arrogance. They are probably the type of person who starts each sentence with "I'm not being horrible but....".

    Just be thankful you're happy & well thought of and they are a sad, lonely anon.
