The other day at work, someone asked me to check on something. In order to do that, I had to go to our business department which is upstairs in the main building of our central office. No biggie.

When I got back to my office, the following comment was made:

"Oh my gosh, I am so sorry I made you have to walk up those stairs!"

Soooo, I guess I am that girl. I am the pitiful fat girl who is unable to go up a simple flight of stairs without stroking out from it. I have opinions formed about me (yet again) because of my weight. (Well, obviously I am not always that knees were not even hurting that day, thank you!) [Read: the person who made the comment was in NO WAY being fact, they have seen me with hurting knees...]

Anyways, this takes me my other thought...just because I am overweight does not mean I meet all the preconceived notions of being "FAT". When folks think of a fat person, they sometimes tend to picture a huge, sloppy, stinky, lazy, immobile person. Maybe that is why some of my friends look at me and say "You are not fat." Well, yes, yes, I am, but I think I take fat to literally mean overweight...obese...big... and they take it to be sloppy, stinky, lazy, etc.

Well, either way, the stairs did not bother me that day and I really hated being "that girl".

LOL, don't even get me started on the time someone told me I was the "most mobile/active person of my size" they had ever seen. Hrrrummmphhh. I'm not really that active, but then again I am not laying in bed 24/7, so give the fat girl a prize.
