Out of the mouth of babes...

I had my second appointment with Karen, my diet coach yesterday. She was happy with my food log. (In fact, she even asked if she could copy it to show her other clients.) According to her scale, I lost about 5 pounds since my last visit. And my blood sugar was only 97 about 2 1/2 hours after eating. (According to my home scale I lost about 2.5 pounds since I started last Monday.)

So..about that title...I was at a home visit today with 2 and 3 year old brothers. There 4 year old brother joined us in the playroom. He has seen me many times over the years. (I worked with him when he was younger.)

Today he came up and asked me, "How come you are so fat?" He didn't say it with any malice--just curiosity. (His mom has had 4 kids in 4 years--the oldest is the same age as Munchie, my baby!) I deflected with, "That's just how I am. We are all different."

Oy, I remember taking Biggest to the grocery store and cringing when he would make innocent observations like "He's fat!" or "She's REALLY black!"
