When You're Still Called Fat...

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.


  1. Oh that is awful!!! I'm so sorry your day started like that. :( I think you are beautiful--inside and out!!! :) Hope you have a better day today.

  2. Hey--you finished the mini a minute and a half before me!!!! ARGH!!! And to think we could have met up afterwards. Maybe next time...maybe at an event that doesn't have 40,000+ people! :)

  3. Holy crap sister. You freaking look amazing and have done amazing things. Don't let a couple of insecure kids get you down!

    I'm so sorry that you're being belittled by them but let me just tell you, you're amazing just the way you are.
