I have a pair of jeans from high school and my goal is to fit into them again. Really I want to be less than that, but I will take that too. If anyone out there reading this is wanting to lose weight, is losing, or has lost, please share your story. Hearing how others have done it or are doing it will help those that want to, but are afraid! I have been overweight for so many years; even after losing the weight I still often see myself as FAT! Not that I am skinny, but I have come a very long way. I feel that overweight people are often judged without being heard. I understand that first, visual impressions, are what most people base everything on about a person. Though really first impressions should not be about looks, but about how a person is, acts, treats you and others etc. It saddens me that just because a person is heavier than what others think is acceptable they immediately turn the other way without getting to know them, like I said before, do you really think they WANT to be that way. I honestly can not remember a day when I woke-up and thought, oh great I did not lose an ounce, thank God I am still fat! Often there could be medical issues etc., that without getting to know them you would never know about. Sorry to be on my soap box, but with the recent news about a blogger stating that fat people make her uncomfortable, or something to that nature; it really made me angry. With new shows like Mike and Molly on the air or even the wonderful shows like Ruby and Too Fat for 15; at least these shows are showing the struggle to lose weight. The world have more people in that look like them, than "perfect" people. Again I know this is more a rant than a true blog post, but hey it is my blog post even if no one reads it, I feel much better getting it off my chest!
I would like to wish everyone a super safe Halloween. Until my next post, stay healthy and happy!
