Oh My! I feel so bad.
I try to always be so very courteous to others, as I know from personal experience how badly others inconsiderate words can hurt.
Well, I did it.
I was at an appointment for the second time and the receptionist is very nice. But I am having a very hard time knowing if this person is a SHE or a HE.
I don't mean any disrespect! Not at all!
I tried figuring this out on my own, but just couldn't.
So I asked my therapist what the receptionist's name was, thinking that would do it. WELL...
Turns out I don't hear as well as I thought I did.
I thought she said something along the way of 'Lorena' as she was opening the door. And is the case when you don't hear so well, what do you do?
"I am sorry WHAT IS HER NAME??? LORENA???"
Of course she probably thought I was deaf, so spoke even louder and only being two feet away from the desk and waiting room (full of course).
She shouted "NOT A GIRL!! A MAN!! AND HIS NAME IS LAWRENCE!!!!"
Of course, I couldn't just RUN out of there. I had to pay my bill. What luck....not.
Well, what could I do?
I pulled my shoulder's back, went and did my business (flaming red face and all). Then I walked out of there as though NOTHING HAPPENED.
I have to go back in a few weeks. I hope it is forgotten then. Or I hope he was deaf... or whatever.
Yep, both feet are in my mouth. Tight fit and all.
But I did learn something, well maybe a few things.
1) A little more finesse when not sure what to say or do in a similair situation for sure.
2) I think I will try a peppermint foot lotion, at least the taste of de'feet' will be better.

CHANGES...they be a happening!
When I started spark my BMI (Body Mass Index) was 41.9 down from 49.3 at my heaviest.
Today I am happy to report my BMI is down to 36.
I still have a ways to go, but down is great!
Now, I was trying to figure out what my ideal weight would be and boy is it hard. I thought I wanted a goal to aim for and found that what I had in mind is unrealistic.
I picked what I was at age 17. Why? Because I was happy then, with myself. Don't get me wrong, I am happy today too, but I loved my body back then more.
You know, young, attractive and lots of wolf whistles. Haven't had that in a very long time. Don't know if I will ever, but for some reason I liked that weight.
Now I know I am wrong to pick it and have to figure out something else.
I think we should pick our goal weight based on BMI scale. It is probably much more realistic and safe than what we perceive otherwise.
I will study it further and go from there.
My goal at present is to get under the 200 lb. mark.

Well, thank you.
I was taught to take a compliment, it is hard to do sometimes though. How can you take a compliment when I swear the person saying it is blind!
I have had a few of those lately. They look at me and look again, then say "I like your hair."
What are you supposed to say besides THANK YOU?
Especially when you know, I mean KNOW that you are no where near your best in the hair department.
I was in desparate need of a color and cut, even having a case of the lates that morning, so was dealing with the dreaded BED HEAD!
Maybe that is it. It was a blind side. I took the compliment head on rathere than looking from the side. Maybe they really meant the opposite of what was said??!
Hhhmmm... Nope they are blind.
But I think I will leave them floundering. Why should I point out their fault? Only to throw my success in their face? I will leave them in their narrow world. Until the obvious hits them between the eyes.
Then when they finallly look and say "WOW! HAVE YOU LOST WEIGHT!"
I will look at them and say, " YES, BUT I JUST HAD MY HAIR DONE."
