My weekend flew by, as usual, but I had a great time with my Mom. We worked out at the gym, did a little shopping and visited with friends on Sunday, and she saw Uncle Wesley though I didn’t. My throat has been scratchy since Friday, and I woke up feeling a little under the weather Saturday morning so I didn’t take a chance. He’s doing well enough that he went to church again yesterday. This week, I’m going to work on some fundraising which will start with making a flyer so wish me luck. Now it’s time for FMM!
If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!
Have you ever been the victim of stereotyping? If so, will you elaborate? What do you wish people thought of you as they notice you for the first time?
I know it won’t be a surprise to anyone that I’m often stereotyped due to my weight, but I think it’s still pretty common. When people see me walking down the street, I still assume I know what they’re thinking though they don’t say it out loud as often these days. All too often, I think people assume (based on personal experience) that I’m lazy and that I sit on the sofa eating giant bags of Cheetos every night or something. I wish people saw someone pretty and charming who is also intelligent and worth knowing. And lately, I’ve started to realize that some people do see that, and I’m thankful for them. (You know who you are.)
Now it’s your turn to answer the question. Feel free to expound more than I did, and don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments! Happy Monday!
