I was always the fat kid in class. Guys was so mean to me, they would walk by and make funny noises at me or call me names. I know that being made fun of hurts so many kids. It is so wrong!! They may have a disease which causes them to be larger than most. I lived everyday of my 9th & 10th grade years in hell. I went from a size 26 to a 14 the summer between sophomore and junior year, I felt great. The funniest thing happened when I started school my junior year, these guys that was making fun of me was asking me out!! They all thought that I was a new kid, but I very rudely told them they could kiss my a**. When they found out that I was the fat kid from last year they couldn't believe their eyes. I think that everyone needs to be aware of the epidemic of childhood obesity that is going on and help to support their kids from becoming a member of these group.

There were a lot of little skinny boys who ran their mouths in high school. The funny thing is, now they are all fat, drunk and stupid. Wow, ain't karma a bummer.

I saw this post and had to respond. I was also one of the kids being bullied and made fun of because I was chunkier. It was funny because there were other students larger than me, but for some reason, I got picked on the most I guess because they knew it bothered me. I had suicidal thoughts. I had horrible thoughts about the people who caused me grief. I even went to the point of starving myself just to loose weight and feel like I fit in, but alas, still harassed. So the weight thing really didnt matter to me anymore. I concentrated more on standing my ground , but by then, I had also shut myself out and away from everyone so much, I can count on 1 hand the people I still talk to and are friends with from High School. LCHS was a good school, but the kids that were in the cool click made it so hard just to be a normal kid. I wouldn't go out and do the things kids did, even quit all the extra-cirriculars I was into also.
I have sworn to myself that I would never ever let anyone treat me the way I was treated in school by my so called "class mates" again. I will say, this mentality has followed me through my years of growing up and really sad to say, it has a play on my life now. I very rarely let anyone too close. I am a social butterfly now love meeting people...but I will rarely become anything more than an aquaintance with anyone. The thing that hurts the most about that is I have met some wonderful people that I would love to become best friends with, like invite over for dinner and go out type best friends...but I wont even let that happen.
Bullying can really mess someone up socially and mentally...and it gets even worse in some cases. But I will also say this...some of the people that made my life miserable...I hear about them every now and again. And I have a feeling Karma is working on them now for what they did to me and others then! The ones that made fun of us for being overweight then, cant even tie their own shoes now it looks like. The girl that always stole the boyfriend seems to get divorced every 6 months. And now, me, the one who hated herself in highschool and never felt pretty enough or thin enough, has a great career, wonderful boyfriend, and more happiness than money can by (then only downfall is the not letting people close thing) but I can live with that. I was able to overcome all that crap back then and I worked hard for my happiness. The happiness that others seemed to have back then but I could never achieve...It is so strange. But that was just me giving my 2 cents.

To the above comment...I feel for all your grief. I know someone that too has a hard time letting people get close because in this high school wasn't so much bullied but never made a lot of friends. Yes too this person very smart and intelligent. The intelligence was the key. Others hates a sponge. And I mean sponge by someone that wants all the knowledge they can get. This person has other reasons for not letting people get close but not having close friends in hs makes a big difference. And too the people they went to school with are either drugged out or not even attending a secondary school. Working a dead end job, two or so kids and not a clue what to do with their life. But you know what, after all is said and done....God and prayer is the answer. I'm a firm believer. Prayers are out to you to overcome that issue with friends and such. May God bless you and congrats for doing well in life.

I know there are alot of people out there too that probably could. And I would be there for them every step of the way. An you know Lewann, that is true. Since there is soooo much obesity now, its not really all about picking on the fat kid anymore...honestly, there are a lot more of them! It is sad to see yes, but now the bullying has gone to other extremes. yes, the chubby kid still gets picked on, but it is all in the sense that some still find the need to do so, which is so utterly sad that alot of the parents dont make it a point to tell their children not to be a bully, because in the past, they were probably one themselves and still have yet to learn!
