I originally heard the term “Fat is not a feeling” from Roni’s Weigh. I love the saying and whenever I hear someone say, “I feel fat.” I always reply – “Fat is not a feeling. Happy, mad, sad – those are feelings, but fat is a whole other thing.”
Well, today I felt fat.
I went to go try on some running clothes. I was looking for a few pieces of running shorts and shirts to get me through the rest of my training.
When I tried the clothes on in the dressing room I caught a glance of parts of my body that I would rather not acknowledge exist (damn those face to face mirrors). Anyways, for the rest of the day I felt fat. I don’t know if I would have still felt fat if not for the dressing room experience. But, I do know a few minutes in a room full of mirrors shouldn’t ruin your whole day like it did mine.
After thinking about it for
too long a while I realized that I am on the right track to reach my goals and really am not going to let a bad day derail my efforts. I realize even the skinniest girls sometimes feel fat (and if I may, please don’t call yourself fat if you’re actually skinny around me as it makes me feel like a giant, obese monster).
The moral of the story is I may have felt stressed, happy, tired, mad or confused today but fat just isn’t a feeling.
Lunch – I made the mistake again today of waiting way too long to eat. Then, I couldn’t find a can opener (I wanted beans with lunch) and I quickly threw some cheese in a tortilla and chomped on it while I made this salad.
Dinner was a frozen LC meal on top of a bed of broccoli and carrots. I really overdid it on carrots today and am going to get sick of them at this rate. I put hot sauce on this after the photo shoot. I am addicted to condiments and hope I don’t turn into one of those people who carries around a bottle of hot sauce in her purse.
It’s an inside joke in my family that my mom and I have the largest hands and feet of any women in the world. I really need to call up the Guinness Book of World Records about this.
