Its funny how in this society, "Have you lost weight?" is the best compliment we can give.
Even when I first got back from CFC, people said, "Wow. You look really good. You must have lost weight." I didn't have the heart to tell them, "Well, actually, I have gained quite a bit of weight, but I really needed to..."
The good news from where I'm sitting is that when a co-worker said it yesterday, I didn't take it as a compliment or as a put-down. When I answered her question with a very honest, "I don't think so, but I really don't know," she continued with, "You are just so little!"
My answer, "Yes. I am."
I am very small. I don't see that as a good thing... or as a bad thing... I just am.
She thought it was a good thing. She then went on about how she was gaining weight, blah, blah, blah.
Why do we as a society give more worth to small people than to large people? I have a body that is smaller... I don't see that as a blessing. I don't think I am soooo lucky.
I'm just me.
I love me! And if in the future, my body changes and I'm not so little. I will love me then too.
