Stay Puff Marshmallow Man vs. The Pillsbury Doughboy

Monday, March 22, 2010

This past weekend I attended photography school in Fort Lauderdale. It was so much fun and inspiring! There was something I did not think about until today- I was totally confident being surrounded by a large of group of people. A lot of times I would let my size get in the way of doing things or going places. I was extremely embarrassed about how I looked and I felt people would always stare. For the first time in a few years, I feel normal. Let me define normal- I felt a normal size. I did not stand out at all, compared to everyone else. I hate being the largest person every where I go. Granted I am 260 something pounds right now, to me, I no longer look super obese. When we go to dinner now, I fit in every chair and every booth. It is an amazing feeling to not worry if I am going to fit into a seat or have everyone staring because I was so large.

It took losing 75 lbs to finally see and feel a difference. Let me tell you, it feels great!!!!!!

I no longer resemble the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man, these days I more resemble the Pillsbury Dough Boy and I am OK with that!

I can only begin to imagine what the next 75 lbs lost will bring!

    I love this! The Pilsbury Doughboy is so much cuter and seems so much happier with himself than the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man. Yay you!
