I guess I just feel like venting. I am very obese at 270 lbs. I've been overweight all my life, so I am used to getting nasty comments, the most common one being "you're so pretty, it's too bad you're fat". Recently, I was on the phone with my Pastor, planning my Mom's funeral (she passed away on 10/24/08). Then out of no where, my Pastor decides to tell me that I'm too heavy and REALLY need to lose weight. I was SO shocked and horrified and taken by surprise that I didn't even know how to respond. I told my husband about it, and he was pissed. So he went and talked to the Pastor about it, and the Pastor denied that he had said it "that way" and made it sound like I exaggerated the whole thing or even made it up. I couldn't believe it! Why do people think that we overweight people are stupid and don't know we are big??????

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
