Have you been sick?

As I have made efforts to lose weight and become healthy, I have received many compliments.

But then, there are some comments that have me scratching my head.

Some look at me and ask "What happened? Were you sick?

But then, I have found out, talking with others, that this comment is quite common. Somebody told me somebody put a hand and her shoulder and said "I'm so sorry. But it happens to a lot of people."



It appears that this is a common happening. According to our modern twisted kind of thinking,

Obesity has become what is normal.

Even the next step in evolution.

People coming through my line often are bigger than I was, and have things that are familiar to my past.

even among children now,

and those of us who are trying to improve our health and lose weight are looked on as freaks.

It used to bother me, but I have figured, if this is normal, I want none of it.

I follow the road less traveled now.

And I'm happy.

If it makes them happy, so be it. I just smile at them,

Though inwardly, I'm crying when I see people coming through that are now too big to walk.

It reminds me of my own past misery.

So the compassion is there, if they want it.

Along with a big hug. There's a free one for all of you as well.

So no, I haven't been sick. It's just the opposite. My obesity was making me sick

And now I'm getting well.
