What I Did on My Christmas Vacation (Part Three)


Okay, I think I’m about to show how much of a nerd I am, but here goes…. Have any of you ever seen “The Mirror Has Two Faces” starring Barbara Streisand? I feel like any PSP on a weight loss journey should watch this movie at least once. Barbara plays this doubty woman who decides to change her look, lose weight etc. and once she gets all hot, the guy she’s been in love with FOREVER (played by Pierce Brosnan… ♥!) finally makes a move on her. While he has her on the couch, kissing her he says something like, “I think I was always in love with you, I just didn’t know it.” and then Barbara has this epiphany and basically realizes that if it took her losing weight, changing her hair and putting on makeup for this guy to fall for her… maybe he’s not the guy she wants.

Yeah. It’s amazing.

So there I was, curled up on the couch with Kevin having my own Mirror Has Two Faces moment. “This isn’t how I imagined it would be when we were in the eighth grade,” Kevin said in between kisses.

I felt my stomach tense up a little. “Is it better…? or wo–”

“No, no! This is way better,” he chimed in. “Back then I thought maybe we would hold hands or something.”

We laughed.

Growing up, I was taught by Jenny Jones, Ricky Lake and all those other talk shows that I was supposed to lose weight and then flaunt my new look to the guys from my past who weren’t interested in me before. Then those men would suddenly become attracted to me we’d live happily ever after, The End.

When I watched “The Mirror Has Two Faces” for the first time, I wondered if I could be like Barbara and walk away from the ultimate fantasy come true. But being on the couch having a high school style make out session with Kevin, I realized I didn’t have to, because… I hadn’t lost the weight! If anything I’ve gained weight since Junior High (as I’m sure most people have). Knowing that Kevin liked me as a chubby preteen and that he still liked me as a twentysomething PSP made the whole thing very sweet and comfortable.

It was close to 3am when I reluctantly untangled myself from Kevin and got up from the couch to head home. Kevin walked me to my car. “Do you want to play miniature golf sometime this week?” he said.

“Sure, that sounds fun.” I hugged him and got into my car. I was about halfway back to my parents house when Kevin sent me a text message:

Wow, I guess childhood dreams do come true….

He’s so cute!

    I love your blog! I laughed SO hard at the teeth post last night I'm surprised my son didn't come in my room to see what was up! I posted a comment there, but deleted it because I had second thoughts and didn't want to offend anyone. It was about him having not only bad teeth, but bad breath too. I guess I got carried away with your humor and wanted to make my own funny, too. LOL.

    I hope you don't mind me reading — you have quite a talent!

    OK…big fan of Kevin at the moment. That has to be one of the best. texts. ever.

    And i LOVE your blog. I thought I was the only plus-sized princess in NYC, but I'm glad to know you're here somewhere too.

    This entire snippet of the wonderful world which is your life… is beautiful. wow… sounds like a fantasy.

    I say this on every entry, but I swear I read your blog and it feels like you're living my life! LOL.. i've had something similar happen, and it is the BEST feeling to know that you didn't have to do a body overhaul in order to "win" the guy over… of course losing weight and getting healthy is something we can all benefit from…but it should not be the reason anyone decides whether or not to develop (or admit they've already developed) feelings for you. This is just beautiful.. can't wait to read what happens next!
