I hear this all the time. Yes, it’s a compliment but I know my body better than everyone. I’ll admit, in jeans and a long sleeved shirt, yup, I look pretty good, especially after being pregnant five times.
But in a bathing suit, I don’t feel comfortable. I know I can easily stand to lose 10 pounds and still look healthy, not too skinny. But I’m not going to share my bathing suit pictures with everyone. You’ll have to trust me, or ask a friend who has seen me at the pool.
I want to share that I have two weeks to lose at much weight as possible. Why? Because my husband has a meeting in South Florida and asked me to go with him. Oh, why do I want to share? Because I share a lot. Probably too much. But that’s just how I am. I was that way even before social media.
But I know as soon as I share, people will tell me I don’t need to lose a pound, I look great the way I am, blah, blah, blah. I deserve to feel comfortable. I deserve to be happy.
I know I shouldn’t care what other people think and normally I don’t. But it just gets annoying. So be supportive of your friends. Whether they want to gain weight, lose weight, try a new hair style, whatever.
I also have 2 weeks to finish half a semester of a math class I don’t understand so I can finally get my AA…..
