We went to San Diego for a few days and at the pool a woman struck up a conversation with me. Conversation turned to bathing suits, she was wearing a small two piece and she was a larger lady, she said something about me wearing a tankini… I told her I had lost a large amount of weight and conversation went on from there, she asked the question
“Do you even enjoy food anymore?”
huh? (scratching my head )
I am sorry to be obnoxious, but I eat some kick ass good food!!! I have been thinking about this comment the last few days though and have been reflecting when I would stop and buy 3 chocolate iced, chocolate cake donuts and a large coffee, with all the cream and sugar and that was a “snack” I would eat on my way to work… did I enjoy those donuts? I was always looking around like the food police were going to catch me eating and report me to my family…. yeah right Karla!!!
or when I would buy those large packs of peanuts and dump them in my pockets so no one could keep track of how many I was actually eating, did I enjoy my food then? NO!!!
I don’t have to hide my eating any more so now I enjoy my food more
I understand her comment was from ignorance in that she assumed I have deprived myself to lose weight….
Look at my entries…. I ate friggin frozen yogurt almost every day for a year!!! no depriving going on here!!
again, I understand….. because I spent so so so so many years obese, sure that “you thin people” had some magic secret to the universe…
I eat delicious food every day, and I enjoy the heck out of it!! as should you!
whew, do I feel better!~
see ya tomorrow blogger buddies
