Someday I'll Be Skinny

But today is not that day. My husband and my daughter love to send me funny stuff they find on the internet. My husband sent me this someecard the other day and it cracked me up. I realize that at first it has a negative tone to it, but once I thought about it, I realized that it was really kind of positive. I guess it's all in how you choose to read it. I felt like it was saying, "I may not be skinny today but I will be one day, dammit! I will be skinny!" I know that when you're trying to lose weight, especially when you have a siginificant amount of weight to lose like I do, you feel like it's never going to happen. You feel like you'll be fat forever. You feel like you're never going to be hot again so why even bother. But I am choosing to read this as a glass-half-full/light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel mantra. And one day, it really will be that day.
