So today was our second day of school. Ive seen many students that i taught last year. The support has been unreal. Students see me and their mouths drop open. Some run up and hug me, some make hilarious hs comments like "u arent fat anymore!", some say they are proud and give me high fives, some said u look better now, some say you are skinny!, some say way to go, and others that i taught two yrs ago actually didnt know who i was. One kid who was also on the wrestling team that i helped coach last yr was so excited to see me he ran up, hugged me, then picked me up! It was the most terrifying experience ever! I screamed and told him to put me down lol. He is my height and probably 10 lbs lighter than me. I dont like having my feet off the ground and not being in control with no warning, plus it was embarrassing.... but it was also nice that he was able to pick me up haha. A bigger kid did that to me last year during wrestling season when i was 215 and although he played it off im sure in his head he said woah that b!tch is heavy hahaha. My kids r very honest. Last yr they wld look at my pics from when i was thin and ask if i had had a child. They would ask what happened. Some said they needed to get me to a gym (in a rude hs loving way lol). It never bothered me that much cuz it was facts. They wld say i was hot before and i shld lose weight. Strange compliments but thats kids. I have lost between 50-55 lbs since feb, but i guess those 3 months away were dramatic. It is nice to get brutal honesty thats positive for once. Its nice when kids proudly tell their friends to stop by ur room to see how good u look. I in no way measure the happiness ;f my life by high school opinions, but it was nice getting so much support from them and feeling like they were rooting for me.
