Reason Wednesday

"Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom," Hannah Arendt

It has been a bit of a hard week. I credit this blog for helping me stay positive and in focus.

I know I can be honest because while we know each other, we don't know each other...know what I mean? It's easy to just write it out into cyberland. Cyberland doesn't talk back. Ha!

So, as the week progresses and tomorrow is Canada Day - I am in a great mood! I have an extra long weekend because I took Friday off.

Dear I want to lose weight because of:


I will be meeting my b/f's very large family at a family reunion this weekend. This will be the first time I will be meeting most of these people (outside of his immediate family members who I have already met) and this brings me to the topic of wanting to look good for when I meet and see people.

This includes people I've known forever, people I just meet, people I bump into that I don't like, old high school peeps - the world in general.

I want to leave an impression of holy hotness batman!

And yes, I am aware there is more to a person that looks - but truly can you see personality from across a room? And even though I'm not looking to find the man of my dreams (because I have found him) I am still wanting people to look at me and think good things. Then when I cross the room I can blind them with my flashing personality!

Watch out reunion - this greek girl is ready for ya!! Hope you're ready for her!



  1. I've been thinking about this a lot lately and trying to analyze what I think of heavy people when I see them across the room. Sometimes I think "safe to talk with" and sometimes I think "fatter than me, omg that person REALLY has a problem" but more and more I think "I bet we have some stuff in common" and try to be friendly, since they may be assuming that everyone is judging them - the way I assume people are judgin me, and I have caught myself judging others.

    So, I'm curious, do you judge a fat book by it's tight cover?

  2. I always think about this!! The funny thing is I don't always consider myself fat. I mean, I know I'm overweight, but when I look in the mirror I like what I see for the most part.

    I honestly think of myself as a good person. Like really good. I have bad thoughts obviously lol but I honestly try not to judge anyone by what they look like. What I do need to do though is stand up for myself and other overweight people when I hear snide remarks from friends or acquaintances.

    One of my favourite quotes ever is "be nice to everyone for you never know what sort of battle they are fighting". That goes for fat and skinny people.


Speaking without thinking is like shooting without taking aim...I'd love to hear from you - just be nice to each other - and me :)
