Dear Assholes in the blue car who tried to ruin my Sunday....

I would like to extend to you a heartfelt thanks for driving by me this morning as I was taking out my green bin and being totally obnoxious. If it weren't for your warm greeting it might not have ever dawned on me that I am overweight. Up until that mom

I would like to extend to you a heartfelt thanks for driving by me this morning as I was taking out my green bin and being totally obnoxious. If it weren't for your warm greeting it might not have ever dawned on me that I am overweight. Up until that moment I had been peacefully living in my delusion that I could be the next Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Cover Girl. Now that you have announced to me, and to all my neighbors who were out enjoying the sunshine, including two small girls who are just starting to understand body image, how unattractive and fat I am I can take my rightful place on a pedestal of shame because my body does not meet your ideals of beauty. Thank you so much for showing me where my place in the world is.

I have given your sentiment much consideration and have come to the following conclusion. FUCK YOU. You know NOTHING about me. You see an over weight woman and you are right, I could lose some weight. But there is SO much more to me and you will never know how awesome I am. I am beautiful inside and out. Nothing you say to me will ever change that. I know this because I have a very very smart husband who tells me every day how much he loves my body and my mind. He worships my body and the things I can do with it. I am a good friend, my body size has no impact on the size of my heart, nor my sense of humor, nor my intellect. Someday I am going to be a great mother and my weight won't have any bearing on how much I love my children or vice versa.

So thank you for your insight, I appreciate it more then you will ever know.

God Bless,

Happy with my self..
