She called me FAT!

Thursday, June 30, 2011

You don't realize how much you dread it or how much it's truly you're worse nightmare till it happens (again); So I'm bicycling yesterday with my best girlfriend and we are in my neighborhood peddling away, having a blast when some lady who drove by and disapproved of how we were not riding single file on the street called me a fat ass when I motioned for her to go around us. Look I've been working out over 18 months now and I've lost a significant amount of weight. I have a long way to go but I was feeling pretty good about myself (FINALLY) so I had a little jumper on and today I am completely covering myself up and it keeps hurting my feelings that this random idiot stranger said something so awful. I came to spark because people here are always so supportive and I'm so embarrassed to talk to anyone else about it. Soooo mortified emoticon

    I probably would have flipped her off, told her to go to hell and called her a gobsh*te.... then she probably would have been the one to do more than just threaten me...

    I'm sorry this happenned to you.

    The response I always keep in my mind for these sorts of situations is "Yes, but at least I am doing something about it".

    "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

    What a wise person Dr. Seuss could be! His words are very true. This person does not matter What do they know about your journey? You know what you have done and you know it is something to be be proud of! Focus on that and that great friend that you have that is riding with you. Those are things that matter :)

    This was a very hurtful thing for someone to do! I wonder what kind of a day/life they must be having to think it is okay to treat another person that way?!? I had someone oink at me when I was jogging one time. It was embarrassing, but I really worked to shrug it off. I keep thinking...what do they know?? Besides, I knew in the end I was going to be healthy and looking good. That is what really matters. Wash that jumper and put it back on. Wear it proudly!! You matter!!!
