So- I'm staying at my sister's house, and her neighbor (who is in her 50's, mows her grass in her bikini, and tans ALL day) brought over a magazine. Before I could turn it over to see the cover, I said - "Thanks - I'll be sure to give this to my sister." She says, "Well - maybe you should read it to." Duh - of course it turns out it is "Fitness" magaine.
OK - I'm fat. I get it. But I know that I go to the Y every single day, am consuming less than 1200 calories a day, and am managing to at least START my journey towards a healthier body image, etc. Could you not be so darn snarky? Really??
My brother in law, who witnessed the exchange, knows this woman better than I do...and said she probably didn't mean anything. But - as a woman, I know when I'm getting dumped on and when there is TRULY 'innocence" in a comment. I have my doubts about this one!
The point, however, is a month ago - this comment would have sent me to the fridge in my typical' "F=em, and keep eating" state of mind. Now - I'm actually tempted (shocker) to read the magazine and take away whatever information I can apply to myself where I am now.
I suppose this is growth... Thoughts??
