I may need a new grocery store
her: So how's the diet going?
me: (puzzled cause I thought we were still in the hi, how are you kind of conversation) uh... good.
her: well you always buy healthy food and you have these Weight Watchers ice cream bars so I figured you were on a diet.
me: oh, good pick up, yes I am on a diet. I've lost 160 pounds (feeling pretty proud of myself even though I gained this week)
her: wow, well I don't want this to come out wrong but you must have been a big lady.
me: ............. uh... yeah I was.
But it gets worse... after I leave the store I call Mom to tell her my little story. She answers the phone and I ask if they are having dinner. She says yes but she wants to hear how the meeting went. So I tell her and then replay the above story and then this:
me: so really? How does something like this even happen? Oh F*** me.
me: Ok well I'll let you go have dinner.
Mom: Oh, but you should say hello to everyone
me: Really? You can give a girl a little notice that she's on speaker phone. Hello everyone. Sorry about the F bomb in there.
The conversation continues for a bit but mostly I just want to end it (not "all of it" just the most recent completely embarrassing conversation EVER!)
So does this happen to everyone? What's been a recent embarrassing situation.
Oh and on the weight loss front ... I've finished week one of the 5K training plan. I'm feeling pretty good about it even though I don't really follow the training plan to the letter. The plan says that you're supposed to do the prescribed workout which is about 30 minutes. On the days when I'm "training" I also spend 20-30 minutes on the recumbent bike. On the days when I'm not "training" I've been doing my usual 4 mile loop with the dog.
I put training in quotes cause it seems so strange to think of what I do as training. Does anyone else feel like that?
