The Nose Knows



“You have such a pretty face….if only you would lose weight.”


I’ve been overweight my entire life. From the time I was a baby until now. My other overweight friends would complain bitterly about being told they had a pretty face, if only they could lose weight. I noticed no one ever told me that.


I chalked it up to the fact that I have a rather unusual personality. People as a general rule do not make observations about my appearance. I have thought perhaps a life time of being overweight has made me a bit prickly and intimidating to my fellow humans.


I’ve lost 50 pounds since my surgery. 65 since the start of the year.


I have discovered the more weight I lose the bigger my nose gets. It is funny; I never noticed the giant Italian snozz that graced my face when I was 260lbs.


I have come to the saddened conclusion that people didn’t tell me I had “such a pretty face”….not because of my personality type…but because I really do not have a pretty face.


I am honestly not sure which is worse. To be a total “B” that people fear- or to just be not very attractive.


The good news is I have bought a pair of size 12 low rise jeans. They are made for someone much younger than me…but I have to admit my butt looks fabulous.


Whenever I catch a man looking at me these days…I have this almost overwhelming urge to yell out-

“Wait- don’t look at my face!! Look at my butt! Look at my butt!”

Is that your picture? If it is..........you are mistaken. You have a very pretty face, but something tells me you won't believe me and that is sad.

To cheer you up though I will tell you that I have the flattest butt you will ever see. I can't wait to be able to fit into those panties with cushion on them. Now THAT is sad! ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!

Be kind to yourself sweetie.

You're right... You don't have a beautiful face. You have a GORGEOUS face! Gorgeous is so much better than beautiful- like EVERYONE knows that. DUH! LoL. And congrats on the jeans love!

Now, I want you to know that not only do I think you are gorgeous- I'm a tad jealous of your butt too! When I started losing weight my bum was the first place it evacuated.

Wow. Well it is certainly kid of all of you to say….honestly didn’t make the post to fish for compliments. I just thought it was a rather humorous observation. It is just funny the things one notices as they lose weight. As for my booty…I look for it to deflate any moment now…I just thought I would enjoy it for the short time I have it.

For some reason it would not allow me to leave a comment on your dating entry. I just wanted to say that I've been telling anyone who will listen that I've had the surgery. Even complete strangers I meet. So far, people have taken it well.
