I know that anyone can read my blog, and I hesitate to post about work because of that. However, I have to share with you guys...so here I go.
I work for Julie (not her real name). And there are a lot of perks that come with working for her. Our time if flexible, we laugh a lot, etc. However, sometimes she makes the most ignorant statements regarding weight. One time we were talking about me becoming a certified First Aid and CPR instructor and she asked me if I thought I would physically be able to do it, since it involved getting up and down off the floor. UH....I am not in a wheelchair. That was just ridiculous. The other day when I was talking about going to Curves since I get a discount through my lapband, she snapped and said that it wasnt fair that "I took the easy way out" and got a discount....although she has always pretended to support WLS. Then today she was talking about her "bootcamp" exercise program she goes to M-W-F. Today she was telling the story of how there was a new girl who was "really big...I mean huge...a very large girl". She was surprised how well this "huge girl" did....how she could do most of the exercises. Then she said "I mean, she must have weighed anywhere between 225-240!"
EXCUSE ME! She says that to me knowing I weigh more than that. It was just amazing.
Before you ask, no...she is not skinny herself. She has always struggled with eating, and does workout 7 days a week...but she is solid and box shaped and short...
Does she think that if we are bigger we cant move or on our death bed. Whatever. I just wanted to share as I silently scream inside.
On a lighter note, it's always fun when I find (or they find me) a new blog from a fellow WLS girl...so check out hotdogs and hamburgers...for those of you who watch biggest loser, you might like her latest post!
