Within my close circle of BBW (Big Beautiful Women) friends I am the one that has taken steps to address my weight issues and have weight loss surgery.
I confided in 2 of them prior to my operation as I did not want to be judged!
It must of been the shock!
The response was a real mixed bag ranging from
‘oh, you can die from that.
‘ you don’t need it doing.’
‘ your not big’
‘ your cheating’
‘ its not for me that!!’.
To list just a few.
I am now 13 months post op and its lovely to get the compliments as my friends see the ‘Heffa’ transforming.
But each time we meet I dread the conversations because I don’t really want to talk about my journey with them.
I know its not for them and I don’t really want to force the issue. They don’t really understand because they are ‘apparently’ happy with their size and don’t want to make any lifestyle changes.
So Saturday, the booze is flowing,
BTW I have a new love for Vodka! 🙂
Anyway, we’re gassing and one of the girls is like
‘ I can’t believe you have lost all that weight and you don’t have any wrinkles on your face?’
Wanna see wrinkles – I showed her my tits!! Stopped short of showing her my inner thighs and bingo wings thou – public place en all.
Then there’s the awkward moment when someone says
‘ the problem with people that have WLS is.. I don’t mean you Mitz..
It’s not the same anymore….
The conversation then gets a bit tense … And I start to feel increasingly conscious of the fact that no longer am I the biggest in the pack anymore but indeed the smallest…
Cheesy Grin :-D!!
Then I feel guilty!!
