My morning started with a blocked email sent to me.
In my role as an administrator, I deal with a variety of things on a daily basis - including inappropriate use of internet. This morning, I got a blocked email from one student to another that was terribly inappropriate with a terrible use of language - and ended with: "And let's talk about Ms. Courtney. She's fat. She need to lose weight."
Even after running a half marathon this weekend, giving birth to two children, working my butt off on a daily basis to not only be good at my work and at being a mother and wife, and working incredibly hard at ending fat talk about myself and finding my beauty both inside and out, this has still put me in a state this morning that makes me not even want to function today.
I'm 70 pounds overweight. And let's just put it out there - everyone notices. I know they notice so many other things I do too, but you can't overlook the straight up truth about my body.
