I'm Not Fat!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Well, that's what Jason said when his mom brought him home from school early on Friday. I was working out on the Wii in his playroom and did the body test, which called me overweight. He said, "You're not overweight!" And I said, "At least it doesn't call me obese anymore", to which he replied, "It said you were OBESE?" Well, technically, I was. Probably more than technically, going by the almighty BMI. And I regularly lie about the weight of my clothes. And I'm not gonna stop, either.

But it's nice to know I don't look fat to a 9-year-old. I often wonder what kids think of their grandparents when they're not exactly svelte--or anywhere near it! I think I'll keep him around....

    I can tell you what I thought of my grandmother when she was overweight: that I loved her.

    Dear -Linda_S,
Isn't the love of children usually unconditional? How awesome that your grandson loves you just the way you are, no matter what!! I hope you keep up the workout with the WII and good luck on your weight loss journey!

"Ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care"!!
