we went to Walmart the other day.

It was great as we were greeted by a new mom comforting her new child (about 4-5 mos old). I didn’t make judgments as I’ve been there – but DANG! Did she hafta be RIGHT in the way?

But whatever – I moved on, smiled and maneuvered around.

As she was standing by the deli counter I heard part of her conversation with, what I can assume is, her mother.

NM: Really? That’s. Ugh. That disgusts me. I hope that never happens to me.

Older Lady: Shhhhh

NM: No! She let herself go.

I walked away after that.

Forget the fact that I am in the midst of the evil magentas. Just to hear that as a woman; its a sledgehammer in the face.

Yes. I am what someone rude and uneducated would call fat.

But ya know what? Lemme educate you.

I have always been an emotional eater.

I have a thyroid problem.

I have been on antidepressants.

I have been on anti-psychotics.

I have been suicidal.

I understand you just gave birth 5 months or so ago and it makes you “a virtual pro on moms and weight and what they should look like”; but please ma’am – you’re not. Think before you talk your words carry a heavy and very real burden.
