I ran into an old friend today. A guy who use to flirt with me when I was hot and skinny, we even made out once... but the look on his face said it all. He was shocked and didn't even recognize me. That's how much weight I've gained, the guy didn't even recognize me.
I said, "I know I'm sorry, I gained a lot of weight."
He said, "I thought you were in program. Why aren't you going to meetings."
I use to go to Overeaters Anonymous and he knew about it.
I just smiled and said, "I don't know. I just don't."
He replied, "Well, you need to go back."
He looked disgusted with me... horrified. It was so embarrassing. It kinda pissed me off too... I mean who the hell is he to treat me that way? It's not like he's some Greek God or anything... he's actually not very attractive at all... but he's not fat.
Seems like you can be anything in life... a drug addict, an alcoholic, a gambler, a compulsive shopper... you can drive like a jerk, flip people off on the road, be a bad tipper... whatever... and people will love you... as long as you're not fat.
It motivates me to stick to my eating program even more.
