Thinner is funner
Thursday, October 02, 2008
Some folks went out for a drink after work, like they do a couple times a month. I've never gone even though I like all the people and thought it was a nice thing to do. I just didn't feel comfortable in the crowd. When I saw the note today, I made a rash decision to join them. I was wearing a cute outfit and was feeling pretty good. I knew I wouldn't stand out as the fattest person in the restaurant anymore. I almost changed my mind as I entered the parking lot, but someone saw me as they were walking in so I told myself it would be good to have just one glass of wine and then I could go home. To cut to the chase, I had a really nice time. We told silly stories and laughed and gossiped--it was fun. It was another wake up call to the number of fun things I've missed because I was too fat to participate. No body other than myself prevented me from participating. I knew I was missing out, but somehow couldn't get myself together to do anything about it, I'll never know why. I hope when I feel like over eating that I remember thinner is funner.
