My family and some strangers have been calling me fat ever since I was young because of my broad shoulders (I am 150cm tall and around 48kg). It hurts a lot because when I’ve lost 4-5kg they still didn’t notice my weight loss. In fact, they thought I’m very lazy and didn’t work out at all. In actuality, I started working out earlier than the people around me and I took karate lesson because I want to be stronger. Being in an Asian country is really hard for me:( The strangers I mentioned happened to be my neighbour and my parents’ colleague. My neighbour labelled me as “the fat one”. My parents’ colleague asked my sister and me how many meals do we take. Both of us answered 3 meals and he proceeded to compare the both of us, asking me why am I fatter than my sister when the both of us eat the same amount. At that point, he just laughed and I don’t know what to do. They thought it was supposed to be funny but I don’t find it funny at all.

Ps: Sorry for my terrible grammar, English is not my first language
