So I have some good news and some not so good news.
I will start with the good news. The good news has to do with my weight. I weighed myself this morning and I am 203 lbs. Which means that I have let go of 130 lbs and I am only 20 away from my goal and close to being in the 100's! I am so excited to see the scale beginning to go down again. I really want to push through and get the last few pounds off so that I can have that feeling of accomplishment when I reach my goal. I know that with some hard work and dedication, I will be at my goal before I know it.
OK, now for the not so good news...
Someone asked me a question today. This someone is a person that I have met before but I don't really know her. I was talking to someone else and she piped up and asked me a question. Now this is a question that I have been asked before...when I weighed over 300 lbs. It is the dreaded question that every woman does not want to be asked...unless she can answer yes. It is a question that I never expected to be asked again...unless I could answer yes to it. Have you guessed the question? If you guessed "Are you pregnant?" you are absolutely right. YES, I WAS ASKED IF I WAS PREGNANT!!!!! I was stunned when she asked me this, I didn't know what to say, so I just said "NO". She took the wind out of my sails. She might as well have put a knife through my heart and twisted and turned it until I stopped breathing. I'll tell you, she is lucky she still has teeth because it was all I could do to hold mysefl back from hitting her...just kidding. I would never really act out with violence.
Now, I know that I still have some weight to let go of and I know that I carry most of my extra weight around my abdomen, BUT I DON'T THINK I LOOK PREGNANT!! Or maybe I have a distorted vision of what I actually look like and I really do look pregnant. Now, I do get the comment that I am "glowing" and a lot of women glow when they are pregnant so hopefully she saw that I was glowing and she made the comment because of that and not the look of my abdomen.
You know, it really just sucks that someone thinks that I look pregnant enough to ask. Usually, people don't ask a lady if they are pregnant unless they really do look pregnant.
On my way home tonight, I wanted to stop and get some chips but I knew that I wanted them because of the way that I was feeling. I am really trying to kick the "emotional eating habit" that I have developed over the years and I am one step closer to kicking that habit because I did not stop for chips. Today, I took a step forward and I am going to keep stepping forward until I reach my goal!
