What? Who Me? Skinny? Uh, I don't think so....

On being called "skinny": Its a weird thing to be called after all these years. I definitely do not feel SKINNY. I feel better, thinner, happier, but SKINNY? That's just an extreme word that people use to describe thinner people I guess. I am 195 pounds. By no means is that SKINNY. But being called it, does make me think I at the very least, have lost a lot of weight! That's a pluse

I guess most of the people around me use it to boost me up. And for that I appreciate it. But I don't want to settle for "skinny in comparison to your old BIG self". That's great, but I fear settling for a weight higher than my goal weight. I have settled in the past and let important goals slip out of reach only for me to regret that I didn't acheive it.

The dictionary describes "skinny" like this:
skin·ny ( P ) Pronunciation Key (skn)
Very thin. Of, relating to, or resembling skin. having unattractive thinness;

Dang, that does NOT sound lovely to me! EW.

Okay, thats all for now.
