A new normal=skinny *****~

After posting yesterday, I told my husband that I was ***** when I was fat, so what's the difference?  Not really...I have ***** potential but I tend to keep it under wraps.

I am a year and a handful of days out and now have a before and after pic you wouldn't believe.  I think I will shrink it to pocket size for whipping out when the occasion is right.  The weird thing is that even those closest to me have forgotten how heavy I really was and need to be reminded.

I have gone from a size 22/24 to a 2/4.  I have lost pounds and pounds but also the comfort zone in which to discuss the process of losing them.  I don't talk about it anymore after a light bulb experience at a family gathering sitting around a table of short, round women, all of whom are dicussing the best crash diets to use to lose weight for a wedding.  I put in my two cents and get the LOOK.  I was out.  Done.  Finished.  I knew where I stood.  Even though I have a lot to offer in terms of experience, they don't want to hear it from the skinny *****

You want to talk about dieting?  I'm likely to change the subject even though I can calculate the caloric value of your lunch in my head.  What a ride!

BTW, this comes from a girl who bought her Calvin Klein jeans in a size 10 in middle school.  I have NEVER been skinny, so adjusting to folks' impression of me as a skinny ***** is a stretch.

I was a MEGA ***** when I was fat becuase I was so miserable and hated myself so much.  Now that I'm thin I'm a much happier, nicer, friendlier person.

 I had to bump this, the other day a coworker said to me...I am hating on you cause u lost all that weight.  I was shocked. I used to look like her I am still struggling with my weight. I am almost sorry I told her.  

I never thought about it being hrd to be smaller because i consider myself still but what i consider myself and what people see are differnt and its crazy

I am 7 years out, but I will never forget the feeling of harsh reality when I realized that not everyone is as happy about my weight loss as I am.

Also you know there are the haters that are just hoping you regain. Very weird, but true.
