Well prejudgment against us "fatties" is based on stereotypes for fat people, like laziness and getting sicker more often. Some people do fit that stereotype, but it just makes me angry that those employers can't over come that. Worst part, even if I choose not to work for them, for that reason, it isn't like it changes anything. Too bad we can't declare being "fat" a minority. ;)
I am so happy that my blog post cheered you up! I was really distraught about the trip (which was my idea in the first place!!!!) but I realize that as long as I stay true to myself, and be up front with my parents...this can work out just fine. I hope that you stay strong on your own trip and just take things one day at a time. For me...I'll be taking it one MEAL at a time..hehe. I told my mother that we can cook dinner together, but the other meals are mine to plan and take care of! :)
Anyway..I'm rambling! Stay strong and be positive. As long as you take care of you first..everything will work out. We need to start having faith in ourselves (that we'll do what's best for us in any situation).
