Yes, the one phrase I hated the most as a kid. "You have such a pretty face." Always followed by, "You should lose weight so people can see it!" What does that even mean to a kid, eh? My mental translation was you'd be pretty if you weren't so fat and I'd wonder how they could tell it was pretty if I was so fat that they couldn't see my pretty face ... meh, kid logic.
Have I got a pretty face? Dunno, really. I've never really seen it. Yep, always been fat. Fat baby, fat teenager, fat old lady. Thinking it's time to find out.
Ooooh, a bit emo today, me. Time to get that back under the hat!
Little triumphs: 20 pounds down today, and I have to dig out my smaller (heh) cycling shorts 'cause the ones I've been using are creeping up into places they ought not! Also, was able to move around a bit more on the bike today ... even let go of the handlebars and sit up to pedal for a bit! 20 minutes felt easy - will add another 5 on the next round.
Sorry I've been so quiet all weekend ... haven't slept worth a damn the last several nights and had to go in to the office yesterday and today. I'm still here, still plugging away, still peeling off an ounce at a time.
