Meantion my weight loss one more time....

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

This last weekend I went to a family friend’s 60th surprise birthday party. It was held at the small church I attended as a kid. I have not been down there… well since I was pregnant with my twins nor seen a lot of the people in many years. So a majority have not seen my weight loss only heard about it from my family.

The response was WAY too much for me to handle!!!! Everyone said I looked great, but it was the after comments that stung… “You have never been this tiny” or “I can get my arms around you.” By the end of the evening I actually felt more like a beat down dog rather than a cutie in a new party outfit… It was rather painful :(

By the end of the weekend – and after seeing many more people I had not seen in years, I wanted to crawl in a hole and hide. Then as I am leaving, my mom says “Okay honey, tell me the truth. How did you really loose the weight?” Oh I was soooo mad! She has been a witness to me busting my batooty at the gym and checking labels for nearly a year (until we moved in October) and she had the gull to ask me that!?!?!

I just don’t know how to perceive all this, and am still digesting this last weekend. I think I will keep my distance of 3 hours from home for a while…

    That is great that you got so much positive feedback from friends and family...It is also really sucky that some of the comments were quite hurtful. You are doing great, so don't let a few bad remarks get you down!

    I'm sorry it was such a negative experience---I also do not like to have attention drawn to me, so I can understand.
