I was deliberately invited to be the fat best friend, but now that I'm way more hotter and beautiful, my friend hates me and kicked me out of her bridal party. But am I overreacting??? She says I am. But she also calls me a fatty fat fat.

  1. And I like how the list is organized in escalating order of evilness, so she starts her list with some debatably thoughtless memes instead of, you know, that time her best friend ditched her sleepover to hang out with someone else and then came back to sleep. Somehow I don't see a real person listing that ninth in the list of things this person did to make it an unhealthy relationship.

  2. What gets to me is that she put such empathies on their heights. In what country is 5’7 and 5 feet both extremes for a woman? Either OP is remarkably tall in her country or her old friend is small compared to the average height. Both can not be true with that little difference in height. Had OP been taller or it had just been about the weight I would believe it but this doesn’t make sense to me?

  3. my favorite thing about these posts is how both the characterisation and the tone of the post clearly show what OP’s stance on the issue is AKA they KNOW they’re not the asshole, and the antagonists are clearly antagonists down to the villainish rants and monologues, and AITA somehow still manages to think these posts are 100% bona fide moral dilemmas… they would all fail any beginner literature analysis course

  4. I can sort of believe this. I am a former college athlete who ballooned up to 410 lbs. Even at 6'3", I was extremely obese. I lost 185 lbs and have kept it off since 2016. I've actually lost another 15 lbs since then just by maintaining the lifestyle changes I implemented when I started the process. Most people cheered for me but there were a few who were weirdly hostile towards me about my success. For some reason, there are people who get angry at you if you move outside the box they have placed you in.

  5. It's because when you improve yourself, people can no longer compare themselves favourably to you. In addition, your success demonstrates that self-improvement is possible. You become a reminder of their failures, of their own inability to improve themselves. And rather than use that as motivation to do something, they tear you down. Crabs in a bucket.

  6. I would have been open to believe part of the story if OP hadn’t described herself as some sort of giant at 5’7 and that she somehow looks bigger because of her height? Meanwhile her friend is apparently small and thin at 5 feet. If 5 feet means you’re small enough for it to be a thing you’re not in a place where a woman is considered remarkably tall at 5’7.

  7. My family is genetically pretty overweight, and I was obese before I decided to loose weight. When I did loose weight everyone treated me like I was body shaming them, even though they used to make fun of my weight. So yeah, the plot of this story is believable but the execution is a bit off. I suggest this 13 year old take creative writing as their elective.

  8. Eh, I've seen some really toxic dynamics at work, so this could be 50/50 in the reality stakes. There are genuinely people out there who need to have somebody uglier/poorer/socially less advanced in some way in their lives to feel better about themselves. And they don't take kindly when their pity friend gets their shit together.

  9. I believe that, but I also think rarely do those people articulate their insecurities like cartoon villains spewing out their motivations like this, lol.
