Don't Look At Me Like That...
Sunday, July 21, 2019
I'm at a garden party hosted by one of my swim people. It's a hodge podge of people and a delightfully beautiful afternoon.
One of the guests sitting across from me on the porch says "so how do you know Deb?"
"I'm her aerobics instructor." I answer smiling.
I watch as she looks me up and down and says "oh
.." I hate that look... I hate when people look me up and down when I say I'm an aerobics instructor. I know they are silently judging me thinking 'how can someone her size be an aerobics instructor?'
I was grateful right then my mom tooted my horn a bit and informed the perfectly manicured nail, size 2 lady that I also run races as well and that she (my mom) is very proud of me.
I sat there a bit embarrassed. My mom (even though shes 80% blind) saw her look me up and down. I hate that people think aerobics instructors and runners cannot be plus size...
Do not look at me like that... :(
