I stole this from eggface. I added a comment or two of my own when necessary. Sometimes it's good to remind ourselves where we've been.
Worst things about being fat:
I always thought one of the worst things about being fat was that other people knew my "issue" I mean most people have "issues" but they don't surface till you get to know a person... mine were right there on my backside, on my stomach... 100+ pounds of issues. They knew I was out of control and every other good thing in my life was negated because of that.
Other things that sucked about being fat:
-Having to drive around for "diva parking" because walking across the parking lot was tiring.
-Going shopping with friends and only being able to buy purses.
-When people you were with asked for a booth and you weren't sure you could fit.
-Going to concerts and not being able to fit into the t-shirts.
-Being hot all the time.
-Narrow aisles in stores (especially antique stores many times my butt almost took out a breakable or two)
-Weighing at the Dr. office and seeing them move that little metal weight over one more notch.
-Being limited to three clothing stores.
-Not getting much play anymore ;)
-People analyzing what you order at restaurants. Forget going into an ice cream shop.
-Airplane bathrooms. Enough said.
-Tray tables on planes and sitting in the middle seat.
-People always saying, "You have such a pretty face."
-Walking by a group of teenagers and hoping they didn't make comments.
-Having pictures taken.
-Ordering things like special shirts for an event or bridesmaid dresses.
-Those desks with attached chairs at University.
-Not fitting on roller coasters and amusement rides.
-Getting into contortions to paint my toes (or just to put on socks).
-Worrying when I heard a creak in a chair.
-Backseat seat belts.
-Old-fashioned movie theater seats and stadium seating.
-Packing a small getaway bag is impossible. 2 garments took up the whole bag.
-Summer clothing (sleeveless, short, revealing, definitely not fat-friendly)
-Never getting a piggy back ride or being swept off my feet.
I'm sure there are many more and it's been therapeutic making this list so as I think of more I'll add to it.
I never want to forget.
