I do rescue training with a volunteer group. Tonight we were checking out some new blankets we had. Someone said "they don't look very strong" so we tried lifting ME in one! I was thinking, as I usually do, "if it holds me, it'll hold anyone else".
They lifted. It held. They were surprised.
One of the newest team members, who's only known me a couple of weeks, said "But she's so light". I was like "OMG, are you kidding?!"
But an older team member pointed out to me that I am. I'm lighter than her. I'm lighter than many of the women on our team, and probably all of the men.
I'm not done thinking of myself as "the fat one" yet, and apparently I'm "so light". :) Heheheheh.
