" In life, it doesn't matter if you get knocked down, it's if you get back up that matters."
Where am I going with this? Well today when I came out of the pool facility I walked past one of the hotel rooms where the door was open and 2 teens were in there and I heard them laughing and one said "that's the one I told you about in the pool".
I kept on walking but inside I kept telling myself walk back and give them a piece of your mind and telling them that the reason I'm in the pool is to get healthy and on my journey to also lose weight. I really wish I had a crystal ball so I could show them in their future they would have a weight problem too, well if my magic wand would work it would happen to them.
But I didn't, actually their words hurt so bad, but I kept telling myself not to let them upset me, so I kept pushing back the tears and went about my day. I know what I look like in my bathing suit, but I strive every day to look in the mirror and tell myself that I love the person who is looking back at me.
I had an appt. to get my hair cut and dyed and today I did something that I never do. I told the hairdresser not to cut much off, but to put my hair up in curls on top of my head, I wanted to look nice, cause I was going out to a baby shower later.
In my profile picture my hair is up somewhat as my sil that came south with us did it up for me before we went out for supper, she was experimenting and I thought it made me look younger, but I didn't dare to have it done once I got back. But today I got brave and had it done. I thought it looked nice and when I walked into the shower everyone kept commenting how nice it looked, how much younger I looked. Was I beeming, you bet I was.
I refused to let those 2 teens ruin my day with their nasty comments and I let my friends who really know me tell me the truth. They look beyond my fat and rolls and see the real me. I'm so thankful for my true friends.
