When skinny people say things like "it is so hard to gain weight, I've tried everything". Don't think for one minute that they have the same battle as overweight people who say "it is so hard to lose weight, I've tried everything". AND, if you are a skinny person, here is a piece of advice. Don't try to comfort a heavier person by exclaiming "I WISH I could have some of your weight". It does NOT make it easier to relate to you. It just makes us want to punch you.
It is soooo much easier to be socially accepted while trying to reach your goals than have the constant burden and ridicule of a society.
