I've been rollin' this around in my head for awhile now. I haven't quite figured out the right thing to do. You'll know...you always do.
So help me BlogWorld.
There are these ladies at the gym that are big ladies. One walks with a cane, she'll be CaneLady. And one wears tshirts with blizzards and frostys or tees from DairyQueen, she'll be The DairyQueen. Both are super sweet and are workin' very hard to reach whatever goal they have set for themselves.
So here's the problem.
I would like to say, "Atta girl" or "Good Job" or "Keep it up!" without comin' off like a lesbian. Or have one of them burst into tears "You think I'm fat!!!" sorta thing.
You see I have lost 20 pounds. I have trimmed down a great deal. But very few people have said anything to me about my progress.
My sister at Christmas said something about it. She has to say something. She's my sister!
One of the BeeHiveLadies commented on my legs ....."lookin' firmed up".
And then there's Roy. He was watchin' me get dressed and said "You need to buy smaller panties."
Isn't that just the sweetest thing!! But he wants laid.
If someone odd off the street would say something or those people that haven't seen me for 6 months I would feel like all the torture that I've endured was worth all of it!!
So here we are back to these women...I want to encourage them.
The CaneLady reached a goal and had her photo on the wall. So when we were in the locker room together...and her ModestyLevel is where mine is....she didn't think a thing about undressin' and dressin' with me. So I thought if she as bold as me I'll just go for it. I told her I saw her photo on the wall and that she was doing a good job.
She just lite up!
She and I chattered away while we dressed. I have a feelin' she thought I was one of those SkinnyBitches that didn't want to lower myself to chat with her.
That's what I think about those SkinnyBitches!!
Those that look at me over the top the Vogue magazine.
Look at me like that again I'll squash your SkinnyBitch-Ass!
And you'll say "ThankYou for allowin' me to read YOUR Vogue!"
That's right, I brought that to gym!
The CaneLady now talks to me everytime we are in the gym together.
Anyway, TheDairyQueen, she is awesome!
She gets on that elliptical thingy and gives it her best. I can't do that. I'm outta breath after 2 minutes.
She's making progress towards her goals....You can see it.
But her photo isn't on the wall to show her progress.
Do I just suck it up and go in like Nadine normally does and just say "Atta Girl"??
And if I walk away with a date....so be it.
It won't be the first time.
