I started to post this blog entry a few months ago but was having problems with SP and was unable to do it. I saved it in my documents and forgot about it. Today one of our team leaders made a post that made me think of it again.
What is Normal?
I read a friends blog a few weeks ago and the word normal was used several times. She longed for normal sized clothes, to be a normal size, etc. It made me wonder, am I abnormal? I have never thought of myself in those terms. I am over weight and wear plus sized clothes. I just have never thought of myself as abnormal. Thinking of myself that way seems negative.
Another word that I have seen a lot in posts is cheating. Someone cheated on their diet or allowed themselves a cheat day. That word seems negative to me too. I prefer to think that I allow myself a free day or treats from time to time. That may be a meal or a dessert. Sometimes I get off track too but I hope that I am able to continue getting back on track. Every day is a clean slate. To me thinking of cheating brings to mind feeling guilty. I think if I felt guilty every time I got off track I would soon give up.
Just some things I have thought about as I have read posts and blogs here. I'm not saying anyone's views are wrong. That is just how those words make me feel.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
