OMG did you just call me fat???
As most of you know, my husband and I are foster parents.
We've recently been blessed with a new "little chickadee", as I refer to our foster babies.
She's the cutest, sweetest little thing - and entirely too much like me!
No filter - she thinks it, she speaks it.
She is also a Virgo, so she shares those little compulsions I have. I thought it was incredibly funny when I set her up for her bath & got her the "wrong panties". She was wearing her monkey pajamas & I did NOT get her the monkey panties - I got her the color coordinated pink ones...
How dare I??
In any case - as I said - this little girl is just the sweetest little thing. She and I spend a fair amount of time together and she is very well adjusted to our home. Maybe a little too well adjusted...
What did she just say to me?? Oh, Yes she did - she called me FAT!
Now mind you, I'm not exactly the 120 lb chippie I was 10 years ago, but I've had a rough few years. Between being sick & pumped up with steroids, I have packed on a few lbs. HOWEVER, being I just lost 20 of those lbs, I THOUGHT I was starting to look a lot better... There I go thinking again...
Clearly, I must be way fatter than I think, because this little girl is relentless with no regrets....
So now I've been on the Elliptical at least once a day, every day for at least 10 minutes. I am eating my yogurt and my fruit. And YES it hurts my joints and YES I'm doubly tired!
Hopefully, I will be able to shed the rest of what she sees.
In my defense, she is butt level - so of course it looks HUGE.
A word of advice with my friends who's filters do work... the words are, "Wow, Jenn - you look fabulous. Have you been working out??" And I'll say, "Why yes, thank you for noticing..."
Hopefully our little miss will be far enough away to not correct you.
Talk about a kick to the ego!
120 lbs - here I come (Ha!)
Thank you for reading my blog!
