I'll bet she'd show up if I had pizza

My friend was trying to rope me into helping him with some boring mundane (volunteer) project today. Having done my fair share of volunteer work, I declined; asking where his committee was?

He told me nowhere to be found and he proceeded to trash "the big fat thing" on his committee and commented on how she was probably stuffing her face at some buffet and how she would "definitely" show up and help if he told her pizza was being served.


But it got me thinking about who may have been talking about me 32 lbs ago; and what they were possibly saying. It got me thinking about the prejudice that is still out there. It got me thinking about how mean people can be.

But then it got me thinking about how glad I am to have taken control of my weight before it was 100 lbs. It also got me thinking about how much food was a part of my life years ago; and how it is not as important any longer.

Of course it got me thinking about pizza too!

But I am curious...................what are your thoughts on this post?

I could be the person he's talking about, and it hurts, especially when you see it in black and white since most people won't say it to your face.

Unfortunately, I waited until it was almost 100 pounds. I just started my weight loss journey, and haven't yet gotten to the point where food is not important. I'm looking forward to that day! I'm also looking forward to not having to listen to comments like those anymore once I lose my weight.

I wonder, is it really about the food? Because to me, food IS important. I love food. I love cooking, I love eating and I love talking about food. But that is not really why I have 20 pounds to lose.

I have some post-pregnancy weight to lose. I'm confident I can do it because I did it with my other child. But most of the challenge was about stuff besides food - about eating when stressed or nervous or bored and about making time for exercise.

People can be really mean though.
