So, I've been a little MIA and apologize that! Eep! I haven't been feeling to "bloggy" last week and was swamped with work and blah blah blah. But, a new post! I also got new glasses from Coastal! These are the Derek Cardigan 7008 in Ice. It was a love/hate relationship for the first few days. My eyes look a LOT smaller and I wasn't used to the clear, but today... I love them!
I ran into a friend on Gmail chat one night and haven't talked to them in a while. We started catching up and they asked me "How is your weight loss going?"... so I told them I quit Weight Watchers well over a month ago and started a journey down the body positive and fat acceptance road. They then immediately said "So, you gave up huh?". Before even reading this message I was fuming, I new what it said and didn't need to even read the whole thing to know what they meant. The answer is NO, I didn't give up. I choose to accept myself as is and try a new route on staying happy and positive. Also, WW was never about weight loss to me entirely, it was mainly to help me with portions and to just eat healthy. Fat people can eat healthy just as well as thin people. Fat people can watch their portions just as easily as thin people to. After they said that I said I had to go. I don't need to explain myself to them, I knew for a fact no matter what I said they would still think I "gave up".
This was the other night... like say Tuesday I think. So that kind of set my week, I was feeling very blah all week after this conversation. I'm still not feeling 100% positive, but I think this will all change this week! I need to refocus and get back on track with a happier me. I have been beyond enthusiastic with my body and myself lately, so I need to root back on to that mood and carry on. We all have struggles and we all have moments were we feel not so pleased. This was one and it hit me hard.
I have been reading the Nearsighted Owl this week and I LOVE her latest posts on the blog! She has been taking diet and weight loss ad's and turning them into fat loving, fat accepting and body positive ads! These new ads make me smile so much that my cheeks ache! I needed this pick me up! This one hits home to me because I was on Weight Watchers for years (say... 4?). It was a yo yo for me and I always had food on the brain and the thought "must get skinny". The original ad is here.
