Medifast Day 92 -- Hmm

Thursday, October 10, 2013

emoticon I don't know what to do with myself. I haven't been under 150 lbs since 2009. A strange phenomenon has begun. People treat me differently. Everywhere. I'm getting better service when I go shopping and more people acknowledge my existence than usual. The other day my mom brought me to see her coworkers. I haven't seen these people in 4 years. I don't even know who they are lol. When I led in a potential candidate to take the test at work, he checked me out. Of course I'm used to attention being negative so my first thought is always "WHAT. STOP LOOKING AT ME." Sigh.

I got invited to the Hunger Games Catching Fire premiere with 5 other coworkers. It's on the night of November 21st. We're catching the double feature which plays the first movie then shows the 2nd. 288 long minutes of movie time with all that buttery popcorn smell. I don't even like popcorn but it's the movies. Like, I don't even see the point of going to see a movie unless you get popcorn. You pay for the experience. Back in high school I used to get a large soda, a pickle, cheese nachos, and candy. In recent years I just got the popcorn. Then I stopped going to movies about a year or two ago because I was afraid of seeing someone who knew me. Then I stopped going outside in general.

I don't know. It's just weird right now. It's a whole new life with just 27 little pounds of fat gone. Blows my mind.

75 days left.

    I know what you mean about losing weight making a difference in how you're treated. I've experienced it. I hope you enjoy the movies and if you decide to have the popcorn just make allowances for it for the rest of the day. emoticon emoticon

    I so know the feeling. I have been hiding for years because I am afraid someone I know will see how fat I got. Even though I have seen others get fat, I am just so embarrassed,

When I inherited some money I bought an outfit mail order from a store in LA I used to be a star customer at. The owner took the time out to ADD me on facebook. I bought the outfit because it was awesome and I bought it 72 pounds ago, so it was a motivation piece. I need to go get that out today and see............. Needless, I won't be going in his physical store until I feel comfortable. Funny thing was at one time he was pretty chunky. UGH, I hate how weight dictates my life.

Sorry to go off on a tangent.

Get a diet soda at the movie. I don't think a pickle will matter too much on medifast as long as it doesn't have sugar. I have started eating them a bit.

    I think it's unfortunate that often people have to be thin to be treated well in a lot of social situations. Sales people can be rude sometimes, ignoring me and others because how could I possibly want to shop at their store? I think I am the opposite of everything they want their customers to be. I think it would be weird to be treated very differently because I lost weight, so I hear where you're coming from. When you're not used to getting attention, it can feel overwhelming.

About the movies...maybe you could sneak something in your bag for you to enjoy while you're watching the films, so you don't feel bad about missing out on the popcorn. I don't know what kind of snacks are allowed on Medifast, but maybe bring a mini bag of your own popcorn or some other snack to munch on. I always try to go to the movies after a meal or a snack so I'm not tempted to buy junk at the counter.
