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!

    I've never had that experience except in grade school - kids are so cruel. What came to mind when you mentioned what your ex-husband said was that you could have lost weight fast if you dumped him, which you did. LOL.
    I am the type of person that would have told the insulter off and then gone home and cried about it.

    I am very fortunate as my husband is very supportive of my healthy lifestyle, and of me generally. The support makes all the difference in the world.
