20 pounds gone!!!!

Monday, February 24, 2014

Yay! Feeling good! It was only a .2 pound loss this week but it's officially 20 pounds! I'm looking forward to a party for my brother in law this weekend coming up! Score! I have a cute skirt just waiting to be worn ;-)...I had a disturbing conversation last weekend that I'd like to share. We were at a friends house last weekend and the wife and another friend there are both skinny girls. For the first time I was in a conversation where they were making fun of someone in a wedding dress and she had "back fat". I was taken so off guard. I think now that I am looking like one of them they are letting me into these conversations that I was never allowed in. Well I did not and do not want to be part of such conversations. I was always wondering if these conversations really happened with skinny girls and they proved me right....unfortunately. So disappointing. :-( So I will not be that girl. Mostly because in my head I will always struggle with food. But most importantly because that talk is toxic. It's awful...

    You poor dear.

    I know when I was skinny, I never made fun of people who were over weight. I'm so glad you see the big picture. Just be careful that you don't get sucked into that toxic hole.

    You're truly a lovely person.

    emoticon on the weight loss and being one step healthier. Double emoticon on not getting caught up in "being one of the girls" now.

    I find it interesting how the dynamics of friendship sometimes changes when one becomes healthier. You obviously are looking healthier on the outside and I'm glad to see that you are still "healthy on the inside" and didn't add to the conversation.

    I've always been told, and I have experienced it, if someone is talking about others to you...then that someone is talking about you to others.

    Keep it up! You are beautiful inside and out.
