Now that I'm thinner -
- People actually look me in the eye, smile and say hello.
- Sales clerks offer to help, instead of not making eye contact
And people go out of their way hold a door open for you. Fat me definitely got treated waayyy differently than smaller me. It's really sad actually. I'm still the same person...just not requiring as much material for my clothes.
We went to a pig roast...at a very nice restaurant nearby hosting a July 4th fireworks fundraiser on Sat afternoon/evening...the food was inside with outdoor seating and games like bocci and horseshoes on the lawn and surrounding area. Inside when I was fixing my plate of collard greens and roasted pig sans BBQ sauce (which they were holding a contest with us voting on 4 sauces made by the chefs...Let hubby vote twice)..I glanced in the mirror behind the food table...and got a shock when I "saw" myself.... I looked 20 yrs younger...except I have gray hair now!
