So I have successfully completed two weeks of the Scarsdale Diet and have lost 14 more pounds. Yay!! Getting closer and closer to my goal. I have given myself smaller goals to achieve like getting to 20 pounds. It is funny though, even though I have lost over 50 pounds, people who see me all the time I don’t think are even noticing….What I think it is is that they see me as fat anyway and since I am still fat I must still just look like the same ol’ Kandy who is fat. On the flip side though, I have run into a few people who I have not seen in several months and they have definitely noticed. It sure feels good when they tell you how great you look. A little validation certainly goes a long way in this business of dieting.
Recently I came across an article called “Does Being Thin Mean Being Happy?” http://www.iol.co.za/lifestyle/does-being-thin-mean-being-happy-1.684609 The assumption is that being slim is the path to happiness. According to Dr. Pam Spur, psychologist, a woman’s weight has more impact on her personal happiness than her love life. Her 24-year study of thousands of people found that obesity leads to more misery and suffering than being single, while being thin provides more satisfaction than in a relationship. I would like to know who she has been interviewing. She should have called me – I am a fat chick with a great love life that has been single, happy, and fat for many years enjoying every day of it!
Next month in November my book Making Light of Being Heavy will be on a virtual book tour and I will be posting updates with reviews and interviews. I am still working on the book trailer but hoping to have it complete for the book tour as well.
Until next time, keep laughing!
