Negative Comments Be Gone!
Tuesday, March 30, 2010
I have always let negative comments about my weight bother me. When I was first married, on came the "happy fat". My husband said to me one day "once you hit 150 pounds I'm history". That cut pretty deep. I was 145 pounds when I married and in my senior year of high school I was 135 pounds. I gained 50 pounds with both pregnancies. Needless to say 150 pounds came, then 160 and so on. I divorced (for a number of reasons). Eleven years later I occasionally think about what he said that day, but I have learned to love and accept myself. I want a man who loves me for who I am, and doesn't judge me if I have a few extra pounds...it's the real me, and I'm a pretty fine piece of arm candy (just a bigger piece, lol).
Have you ever experienced this? Tell me about it. Would love to hear from you all!
Have a wonderful week!
