The Things You Miss Now That You Are Fat!

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Friday, June 27, 2014 Links to this post

There are so many things I miss about being skinny. Who knew the simple things in life I really was taking for granted?

I miss:
  • Being comfortable in chairs
  • Shopping anyplace
  • Never having to worry if I will fit in a seat or in  seat next to someone
  • Feeling sexy
  • Not worrying if I am crowding someone else
  • Always finding my size
  • People looking me in the eyes like I am human
  • Flying
  • Loving myself
  • Strangers caring about my feelings
  • Pretty clothes
  • Feeling confident
  • Scuba diving
  • Riding roller coasters
  • Crossing my legs
  • Not sweating much in the heat
  • Being happy
  • Wearing cute shoes and not looking like a buffoon
  • Swimming
  • Taking a bath with my husband (TMI! I know)
  • Feeling pretty
  • Feeling comfortable naked
  • Not worrying about what other people think
  • Walking down an aisle with ease
  • Going to the beach
  • Not worrying if the seatbelt with fit
  • Feeling rested
  • Not being out of breath
  • Wearing dresses
  • Not being passed up for jobs because of my weight
  • People not staring at you when you eat

It’s no secret I still need to lose 125 pounds but that doesn’t change the fact that I am still human that I still have a heart and feelings and I still want to live life like everyone else. I also want to be treated just as good as any other human. I am human no matter what is wrong with me in the eyes of others. I hurt and bleed…

I just want these little things back that are so BIG to me!

When a Vacation Is NOT a Vacation!

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Links to this post

Our vacation was one nightmare after another. It should have been relaxing but instead there was always something going on so although it should have been fun I actually couldn’t wait to get home again. Yes, it was that bad!

The good news is that I split most of my meals with my husband and I did a lot of walking so when I weighed in on Monday I actually only gained one pound exactly. I don’t know about you, but I think that is awesome!!! Between the delicious food, fried food, and desserts I should have come home with a lot of extra pounds but I didn’t! Score one for me!

The last time I went to New Orleans on vacation I gained 10 pounds, that wasn’t going to happened this time, no way! So long story short I am so happy to be home back in my comfort zone and enjoying this week. Sometimes a vacation just isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.

My Bodies Reaction to Sugar... Herpes Whitlow

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Saturday, June 14, 2014 Links to this post

When I was in college I somehow picked up herpes whitlow in my finger. There was a major outbreak according to the school physician and I was an unlucky victim. I assume I got it either off of a desk or in the bathroom. It’s something that I have in my middle finger. I only have breakouts when life is either stressful, I have been sick, or I have a major sugar intake.

Sugar blast and stress are my triggers and this week it’s been sugar. I have been doing great not eating sugar then suddenly I let my cares disappear for a few days and now I am paying with an outbreak.  I was really sick last week so that probably didn’t help either. Sadly, there is nothing I can do to prevent it, but I would love to thank the nasty person who containment me in college.

When I have an outbreak I have to cover my finger with a bandage for weeks. It hurts like hell. I end up with a streak up my hand and I just want to cry because nothing makes it feel better. Even with medication it can still take weeks to go away. I have an outbreak two to three times a year. Normally not at this time but I guess it’s going to happen anyway.

Now let’s make it worse. I leave for vacation on Monday! Wahoo now add an infection on my finger that is terribly painful. Once again I just want to cry.

I am trying to look forward to my vacation but suddenly that happiness just came to an end. I know people will say oh what’s the big deal move? Move on, and have fun! I wish it was that easy but it’s not! The discomfort is brutal! Sigh! Some days it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed!

The picture above is just the beginning. It's how you know things are about to go wild and NOT in a good way!
