I'm concerned that my post of this morning may have been badly written and therefore misunderstood. All I wanted to do was make light of the fact that I lost 15 pounds in a month just because I had that accident. Losing weight for little or no reason is very, very scary for me.
When I took the photo, I expected a stick figure to appear, hence the title I had in mind: A Shadow of My Former Self. When I saw the picture, I just cracked up and felt happy I could laugh at something that was of great concern to me. So I wanted to share it and thought others would laugh too.
I guess it's hard in this society that sets such a high value on being way too thin, to understand that I want to be strong, robust and healthy. And looking that way, as well. You see, I equate losing 15 pounds and weighing less than what's normal for my height, with being sickly and weak.
I'm sorry if I appeared inconsiderate of those who would love to lose that kind of weight that fast. My post had only to do with me laughing at myself and my fears.
