I’m not unhealthy

That’s what I hear when someone says they have to get some sort of cholesterol treatment. Um, no one said you were. Sometimes its genetic! I hate hearing that kind of stuff though. Oh, because someone has to rely on insulin because of diabetes, they’re unhealthy? Yes, there are some that are, but not everyone.

Its like saying anyone who has to wear some sort of brace on a joint is fat, which is why the joint is weak. I sometimes have to wear a knee brace. I have since I was a teen. I was 5’3″ in HS, and a whopping 90lb, on my “fat days”. So, I was too fat for my joints? No, I just have weaker joints because of genetics.

So, before you judge someone, or even yourself, remember some things are pre-determined, in the womb, while your cells are dividing. You don’t have control over everything!

No, No, No

Fine!! First, I gotta say that I never want to see another set of scales again, but I will admit my weight: I weigh 135 right now. I’ve gained about 8 pounds since I stopped working out at the beginning of the year. *gag* That’s so freaking pathetic. Well, as I said, that I’m no longer making excuses, it still sucks to have to admit how much I’ve gained. The worst part? I haven’t changed my eating habits. I barely eat as it is. Ugh! It sucks so freaking hard!!

Bleh

Eh, I’ve pissed off people today. I’m excited that healthcare reform passed, and I’m quite vocal about it.

I’m also quite vocal on my dislike of the fact that in a few years, I’m going to have pay taxes on my benefits to pay for those required to get healthcare. So, yeah, I don’t like that, and I don’t like the requirement. I’m on it because I feel safer, plus, I do have medical issues (such as the IUD), and it’s better for me to have insurance, so instead of paying $2100 out of pocket, I paid $900, including my deductible. STILL!! $600 for a little plastic tube that goes up in me? Well, at least it lasts for 5 years. Cheaper than the pill at $40 a pop, every month.

Anyways, sorry if I pissed you off because I’m excited that children are required to be covered, no matter their health issues, immediately. Excuse me if I’m excited that in 3 or so years, I can see someone for my bipolar, or whatever it is that I actually have, without the worry of being kicked off my husband’s insurance. Excuse me if I’m excited that people like my mom, who has seizures due to brain bleeds (or something like that) and scar tissue, will never have to worry about being denied healthcare coverage or run the risk of being “too expensive” because of her required meds.

What gets me are the people who are bitching that are currently on federal funded programs, such as medicaid and medicare, and screaming “No ‘gubment’ healthcare”. Excuse me? You’re on it currently. Yes, it sucks, but you can blame the insurance companies themselves. That, and that Oh So Wonderful Man who ran the country into the ground for 8 years.

That’s another thing! I’m tired of hearing people say that Obama’s the one ruining the country. Um, excuse me? He’s on track to getting us out of Iraq. You know, that war that Bush put us in. He’s working harder to keep each and every one of the promises he’s made.

Fat Rolls

Okay, I don’t have huge fat rolls or anything. I’m still on the hunt for a good kymaro body shaper, though. Something so that I can look super hot in a dress for Josh. Then again, I bought these really cute shirts from Target. One brown, one pink, and one tank version in purple. His mouth about fell off his face when I wore the purple. It’s fitted, but loose in all the right places!! Yeah, money well spent.

Oh, and did I mention that I bought them in a small because Target’s clothes fit a woman’s curves a hell of a lot better. And, they seem to understand that women have shoulders, and those that don’t look god-awful in shirts 😉 (no offense to anyone who doesn’t have shoulders :beauty: ).
