Ok, we have a lot of ground to cover today.
First off, I know I’m not at my ideal weight but I’d really like to know in what world a size 14 counts as “obese”. It’s ok, Kristin talked me off the ledge when I saw that, and pointed out that a computer can’t tell the difference between muscle and fat. According to that same algorithm most professional athletes would be obese.
Second, I have been taken to task for some of the things I’ve put in this comic about my mom. It hasn’t been a lot, but it hasn’t been flattering either. I feel it’s necessary to include it, because it’s a big part of all of my issues about food and self-worth. But I also feel it’s necessary to point out that anything she’s said to me, any damage she’s dealt me, she got at least twice as much of that from her mother. And her mother got even more from her parents. These unhealthy attitudes on eating and self-esteem that I’m trying to muddle through, they’re all part of a terrible vicious cycle, and my mom deserves credit for lessening the blow as much as she was able.
I don’t even know for sure if she reads this blog yet. My mom and I disagree about a lot of things, like any parent and child, but she did her best and raised me well and I love her. :)
What else… I will be in Portland for Stumptown comics festival this weekend! Table 128. Come out and say hello. Any PDXers reading this, can you help me figure out how to get the Koi Fusion truck to come out to Stumptown? I will be a very sad Sarah if I can’t get a taste of some Bulgogi tacos and Seoul Sliders before I leave town. :)
