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…
