Day 642- You're So Skinny!

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

My mind is weird sometimes.

I often wonder what people think when they look at me. I know that it is very easy when I first see someone to classify them as skinny, normal, or overweight. I know this because I always used to compare myself to people and wish that I was their size. I know that people probably don't think skinny when they see me, but as 180 pound size 12, I'm wondering if I've made it into the normal bracket yet.

What they think doesn't really matter to me, it is just one of many random thoughts that I had.

This weekend was the first football game I ever watched with JD next to me instead of on the field. It was at Louisville, and we got slaughtered. We left after the 3rd quarter, after two of JD's closest friends on the team got injured. We are waiting to hear their results, but they could be season-ending injuries which is so sad since they are both in their final years.

Anyways, when JD and I met up with one of his friends for tailgating, his friend looked shocked when he saw me and said, "You're so skinny!"

It made me feel great and laugh because again, I view myself as normal size. But in comparison to who I used to be, I'm definitely skinny now.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend!

    My grandmother called me "skinny Minnie" today and while I don't consider myself skinny yet the complement felt good. Take the complement and run with it. emoticon

    You are skinnier, but I would agree with previous comment of you look healthy and fit - the best look there is! Keep up the good work!

    You look great! I had a similar reaction the other day when I saw my mom for the first time in 6 months or so... jaw-drop, "You're... ...gone! Where did you go!!"

Hee :)

I wonder what it is that makes it so hard for us to put our own bodies in perspective?

    Skinny is different for everyone. So is Normal. Keep doing what you are doing! You do look great & so happy! I think everyone has their own definition of skinny. I think models who wear a size 0 are skinny, but I am skinner than what I used to be. As long as you are confident in yourself, that is all that matters!

    I'd definitely say you're "normal" size! I get though. People will tell me I'm "skinny" and I know I"m far from it, but yes, I am skinny compared to what I was. I look at people all the time too and still compare myself, wondering if I look "normal."

    That was certainly a less than stellar game. Really thought we would bring something to the table after last years Penn St win. That's ok, just have to win out the rest of the season! :) Hope the guys are ok and that these aren't season ending injuries. We need them!!!

Oh, and you look fab and I would put you in a healthy and fit category. I think skinny has a derogatory meaning these days (at least in my head it does! haha!)

    That's awesome and such a great feeling. Enjoy it. I also wonder do people lump me into the normal category yet or am I still viewed as overweight. I guess it all depends on who is looking at you. Like you said it totally doesn't matter. You have come so far and done such an amazing job keep up the great work!
