Sometimes I'm ashamed of how I think
Sunday, January 08, 2012
I have a friend from work who should be a model. She just turned 50 and looks like she should be in her mid 20's. At our breaks she talks about her husband and his military time. He still holds a contract job with the military so he's always out on base.
A few days ago she added me to her facebook. Today she posted up a picture of her husband and grandaughter.
I don't know why but it blew me out of the water that he was a very large guy.
It was kind of a mix of how she looks and the military background.
Normally when I think of a good looking woman, I think of a good looking man as her husband.
And when I think of military, I think extremely fit.
So me being overweight, shouldn't I fully understand that weight has nothing to do with a marriage and that even fit people can lose control of their weight?
And the really sad part is earlier today I was watching the biggest loser final weigh in from last season and saw Antone's wife. I caught myself thinking "He was an NFL player and that's his wife?"
I really need to rewire my brain. As much as I hate stereotypical thinking, here I was stuck in it.
