The final straw?

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

In my family we refer to the extra weight around the middle as a fupa (some say jelly/fat roll/muffin top) whatever you want to call it. It's a funny thing around us, a silly name for something we hate. Today, while playing with my sister's kids, she tells them to "touch her fupa and she'll freak out!" She is very athletic, fit build. I've always been sensitive about my weight, I have never been skinny, am incredibly modest, and HATE being touched by anyone! It really hurt my feelings the way she said it. I'm probably being overly sensitive, but it bothered me. Of course the kids were climbing all over me and touching me. Laughing and yelling "touch aunt ryan's fupa!" Is it silly that I'm 30 and got upset, like a 3rd grader being picked on at school? This really made me sad and embarrassed about who I've become/what I look like. Lord, please give me the strength and determination to finally make the change I've talked about for years.

    As a sister she should build you up and tell you "you can do it."

    Nope, not silly. She is your sister and unfortunately that means she knows all your hot-button issues. She may not have realized just how cruel she was really being, however. So you will have to forgive her eventually and let her know that it did bother you. Also, in the same spirit of sisterly cruelty, you should go out and get some extremely obnoxious gifts for her kids this holiday--you know, finger paint, drums, those horrible electronic toys that make noise constantly, and some seriously high sugar candy! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You might try and talk to your sister about your insecurity and let her in on your weightloss goals.... it helps to have support! Most of all she needs to understand that it is unacceptable to pick on someone else especially using her kids to do so!
