Going Good

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Things are going good...
We had a family get together yesterday, my brother who lives in Florida is here....
How nice to have all of together, we have not done that in 10 years since my Mom passed away....
Things went well...My brother did not seem to notice my weight loss, he comment was I had gotten shorter, he said I never realized you were so short and small, looks like your feet never grew....I said I did not get shorter but lost 200 pounds..he looked shocked he said I never relized you were that over weight...a bit chubby but you were always on the move....(did he need glasses or what) but any way it went well I stayed away from the food seems easier at times....the weather was beautiful

I be getting pictures in the next few days, hopefully....wish my sister would learn to e-mail them to me......

Oh well have a healthy day.....

    We don't see the imperfections of those we love; beauty is in the eye of the beholder. . .
    It's always nice to get together with family. Hope you enjoyed the whole visit!

    Hi Kitt. I love family get togethers! I think you brother said it all when he said, "he never realized you were so short and small." He noticed for sure, maybe not conscious about the large amount of weight loss but certainly weight loss anyway. Sounds like a good brother.

    You are my idol, Kitt! I love resding your blogs, may not always comment but each time I do, you give me motivation to keep going,

    Have a perfectly wonderful day!

    That's amazing about your brother. When I lost weight a few years ago someone said 'you have coloured your hair haven't you?'. I am not the type to say 'ohhh, men!' but this was a man who said that! grin. I guess it's true when they say they 'don't feel we look fat' when we ask them! :)
    Looking forward to pics.

    Kitt, I am so happy for you. I couldn't imagine being away from family for such a long time. I smiled at the bit with your brother. Love truly is blind. Awesome job on staying away from the food tables. That is the only way I can manage. emoticon

    Kitt--- do you think your brother just saw you as you ---not a overweight person but a human??

    glad you had a great time with family

    WoW, now that's unconditional love... he didn't see you as heavy and more than likely you are shorter emoticon I know I am emoticon

    I have a similar story... back in 1980 I went on a protein sparing fast (under doctors care) and lost 125 pounds in 9 months, I was 33 and hadn't seen my Great-Uncle since my teens. His comment was "Glad to see you have put on a few pounds!!!!" I thought it was so funny because he hadn't seen me at my heaviest and I chose not to bring him up to speed because it tickled me so much emoticon

    Glad your family reunion is going so well, I bet they love your new house emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear about your brother's blindness though.... emoticon

    So nice you could all get together.

    My daughter is like your brother, she never notice's if I am 180 or 120 she just says I am Mom.

    Isn't it strange what people notice? That sounds like something my brother would say! Did you show him side by side pictures? Perhaps your Sparkpage pictures? Enjoy your visit!

    Your brother is a hoot! Guys are like that, though -- some never seem to really notice physical things about people so they don't notice haircuts, different outsides, weight loss, etc. Perhaps he didn't know how to handle that you've lost weight, or perhaps he really didn't see you as you saw yourself. Each to his own, I guess. Regardless, glad you had the chance to get together with everyone. These gatherings become more precious as time goes on.

    Last year, my sister told me I looked shorter. The year before, I'd worn clogs. Kitt, sometimes, I think they simply don't know how to address our weight. This sister that made the comment about my height is morbidly obese. She knows I'd lost weight. I really do believe it's about taking care of themselves ... whatever the reason.

    When I'm with family and someone else takes the pictures, I get their memory card and download the pictures to my laptop BEFORE I leave! My family forgets to email or upload the pictures too.

    Hey ... are we related? LOL!!!
