My Bridget Jones Moment…

June 16, 2008

A few weeks ago I went out with Dee to a wedding and a graduation party. I had a good time, but from the moment I started getting ready until the moment I went home I had that gnawing idea in the back of my head, “Crystal, you look fat.”

Before I left for the night I had actually considered wearing a “waist cincher” under my clothes. (For those who don’t know the term, “waist cincher” is the polite term that Vicki’s is now using for what is basically a girdle.)

It was a tried and true Bridget Jones moment. I weighed the pros and cons. I honestly thought to myself, “I would really like it if a guy touched me tonight and a fella is more likely to touch me if I’m wearing this. Of course, if I wear this and a guy does touch me he’ll be able to tell that I’m wearing a girdle. That will suck.” So I went without – and subsequently felt fat all night.

The next Saturday I had the same moment. “Do I, or don’t I wear the girdle?” Honestly I wanted to be attractive to the opposite sex, but I was sure someone would be able to tell that I was wearing a girdle. Decisions are the worst…

This time I did it. Sarah helped me decide. For the most part it was a good choice. It made it a bit more complicated to visit the lady’s room, but at least I was shaped like a lady.

On the other hand, during one moment in the night a man I have a crush on came up behind me and put his hand on my back…I totally panicked! Could he feel the girdle?

Ahhhh! I just need to lose like 50 pounds! Isn’t that crazy. Fifty pounds. That’s a lot. How did it get this bad?
