Alittle Update on things... and Venting!

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Okay so the 28th was our 8 year wedding Anniversary and all was well and good. I was and am Thrilled about that! And the Fact that I am about 50lbs smaller now that when we got married!! And the fact that I am no longer 391 lbs! All Things to be Thrilled about I know. But shortly lived when yesterday we were out celebrating our 8 year Anniversary. Took our girls to watch a movie, shopping and out to eat. While shopping I thought O look there's a store that sales Bra's and I am in need of some new ones since having lost weight ect. and its a store that a lady who's about my size maybe alittle smaller recommended so Hey let's got check it out! Sure all is well and good and I m in a good mood even tho my oldest just had a HUGE melt down right after leaving the movies.. I know she was tired and all but that did kinda drop my happy mood alittle. Anyways we open the door and start to walk in and look when the 2 ladies working there pretty much treated me like Julia Roberts in pretty women! Okay so if you've ever seen the movie then you know what I mean. They looked at me like I was Crazy and totally out of place in there store! So yep there goes the rest of my Happy mood. After this and the melt down I m feeling totally like a huge pile of crap for lack of a better word. I did my best to not let it get to me... I walked and walked some more and took my mind off of it alittle.. went clothes shopping for my girls then we went out to eat at a place I normally like. I ordered what I normally do, just to get it and not even eat half of it, just felt sick.. didn't want to eat. Which is Great instead of binging I guess. I am happy about that. But I still feel sick today & I m also finding myself.. Lagging and not feeling well. Its funny how something that seems so little can make such a big impact on the way we feel. And NO I m not gonna let this get me down and out. Just makes me want to push more!! I want to get to my healthy weight and look Sexy and NEVER get looked at that way again! And You know what PISS on them and that store.. there was NOTHING SEXY about what I seen! Sorry Y'all I just needed to get it our and vent alittle. So now its out there and I m going to move on!

Best wishes to you all on a GREAT Day! And a Wonderful upcoming weekend!

    So sorry that these women were SO RUDE!!! You should write corporate offices and let them know about the rudeness.

    WINNIE1978 really said it all best. And I'm glad you're not going to let it get you down! Screw them!

    I agree with WINNIE1978 about the letter. I think it could be beneficial.

    I would totally write a letter to their corporate office and tell them exactly what you experienced in their store. It may or may not change anything, but at least you will have had the chance to really vent to the people that could prevent that from happening to another person.

    I'm really sorry that they made you feel bad, but I'm so happy that you didn't use it as an excuse to binge. That's AMAZING progress! You've come a long way. I know it's easier said than done, but try to focus on that instead of the negativity.


    My mom, who has always been smaller than me, once went with me into Lane Bryant and she was browsing the clothes with me when a saleswoman approached her and said, "We don't sell anything in this store that would fit you!" If she'd said that to me I probably would have been thrilled, because at the time I did fit into their clothes, but my mom was offended... not because she didn't fit into the clothes, but because the woman had the nerve to say something like that to her. Who knows, maybe my mom was shopping for me or another plus sized friend. Some people just shouldn't work retail... or open their mouths around others.

    I bet those women have no idea what is like to lose 10lb, never mind 100+! They probably couldn't achieve what you have yet they look down their noses at you. it's hard to just brush it off but you will and you'll be stronger for these experiences, hope you have a good weekend emoticon ces too

    Ugly people will always be ugly. That is their curse. Good for you for using this as a springboard to stay motivated and reach your goals. Hang in there! You've come so far!

    I'm so happy to see your attitude at the end of your story. You keep your fighting spirit for YOU! Remember, you are making this change to be a healthier you! On the way to healthier you, you will be a more energetic mommy and wife!

    Don't ever let anyone's ignorance get you down. Don't allow anyone to judge who you are. They do not know anything!

    Remember what Julia Roberts did later in the movie. One day, you walk in that store and show them what BIG mistake!

    Best wishes to you and NEVER give up on YOU!
