This week was so so busy. My weight has not changed and I have not started my exercise yet. I REALLY want the videos by "Zumba" but I just don't have the money. They are more expensive then I thought they would be when I planned on buying them a few months ago. Oh well. As of a couple days ago I have officially been eating healthy and trying to "find my skinny" for four months. That's pretty darn good.
I have to share this with you. I think you all will get a kick out of it...and after I picked my self-esteem up off the floor I was able to laugh about it as well.
As you know I work in a day care. I'm around kids all day long. They range from infants to school agers. Today, and on a particularly beautiful pre-fall day, I was holding the door open for a long line of four year olds. They all looked so cute with their short legs and poofy hair and big eyeballs. They were all very excited to be going outside to play for the first time today.
So as I said, I was holding the door open for the kiddos and I felt some little hands pulling on my shirt. I looked down to see a cute little brown haired girl calling my name and trying to get my attention. I quickly gave her my attention and asked her what she wanted. She looked looked at me while still pulling on my shirt and said:
"I have a fat mommy to!"
My face immediately went red. I looked around and saw that there were a few teachers standing there listening. Nobody said a word. I tried to laugh it off by saying... (TO A FOUR YEAR OLD MIND YOU)"I've lost fifty five pounds OK?" Certainly not my shining moment for sure. After all, it was a four year old and she was probably proud of her fat mommy and that's why she was comparing me to her. I was still embarrassed.
Anyone want to donate some Zumba work out videos to a fat momma?
