No. 1 – “You don’t have that much weight left to lose”
Why should this be terrifying? It should be cause for celebration! Right? Ummm. But what happens when I reach the weight I’m supposed to? What happens when my mind goes into “non-losing weight” mode? I’ll need to make sure I don’t slip back into old habits and I continue to plan my meals and work out as much as I do now.
I guess it also scares me because my weight has been an issue in some way my whole life. What happens when it’s not? Don’t worry, I’m not that intimidated, in fact it’s kind of exciting! But the comment still scared me – it’s like I can almost see the actual goal posts now.
No. 2 – “You’re actually quite attractive”
Some things don’t change cause as much as my self esteem etc may have improved, I don’t believe this one. But that doesn’t matter. This terrified me because I thought “If my friend thinks that, what happens if a bloke thinks that?!?!?!?”.
Funny that, considering I ran into an ex the other day at a community event and he actively sought me out and came to talk to me (that’s another story).
Let’s see what the rest of the week brings!
PS – Don’t overthink any of the above, it’s not as bad as it sounds. I see these as comments as mildly amusing and providing me with even more challenges and new experiences. Not a new experience with a bloke. BLURGH! Not that!!!
