Me on my wedding day:
you still like me right
the story of a man and his unlikely friend
Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”
The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.
They hit the nail on the head every single time.
This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy!
It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.
Thankful for this.
If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.
