Get your eagle on...

When I went to my orthopedic surgeon a week ago, he told me to get rid of my boot/cast thing and just start wearing a regular tennis shoe. That was pretty great news at the time, but I didn't realize it would still hurt so much just to wear a shoe. That boot was really misleading because it was amazingly painless, so it gave me a false sense of wellness. This size 10 Sketcher doesn't offer up the same confidence.




I guess it's because I have to walk really slow. A glacier-like pace, people. And I've always prided myself on the fact that even though I was a tub, I had a pretty normal walking pace. I could keep up with folks without being all outta breath or gripping my chest, you know? And now I walk all slow and waddly. It's bothersome. I feel like with the boot at least, people could look at me and plainly see that I had a foot injury. But now I just blend in as a fattie who can BARELY walk. I will admit, it's embarrassing and it makes me not wanna go out much. I get judged enough just being this size, I don't need the added mobility problems to make people shake their heads or stare.





One day I'll be able to live my life and not care what people think about me. Until then, I guess I just gotta remember...



Afterall, I'm not doing people any great disservice by merely existing as a fat person, so why do they insist on going out of their way to show their disapproval? They're jerks, that's why.

Anyway, I'm doing the giveaway drawing tonite, so there's still time to enter if you haven't already! I'll post the winners at some point this weekend (possibly Monday morning?). Good luck!

Have a great Friday, guys.

SO very true about the people that are just a**holes to be one. At least we'll never be like them. Truth is though we know who they are too and call them as such when we see them lol.

People are people. The ones that are jerks will be jerks whether you are thin or fat. It's just the way it is. You wouldn't want to bother messing with them even if you had the body of a Shape magazine model. So don't let them bother you now because it's just not worth it. There are far more important people to worry about. Like yourself or the people who care about you here in bloggerville. Those are the ones that matter. Not @ssholes.

Hope your foot is better soon. If not, maybe you can get that boot back and shove it up a jerk's rear or something. At least you'd feel a little better. :)

Oh man, that picture's so funny. Made my day. I'm sorry you still have limited mobility, but it will get better. Just think, the more weight you lose, the less it's gonna be putting pressure on your foot.
