It’s Just an Honor to be Nominated

I have a high metabolism…so high that people thought I was anorexic until I turned 40. Every doctor visit included the statement, “You could benefit from gaining some weight.”

After the big birthday, the doctor said, “You could benefit from losing some weight.”

I never was at the perfect weight; I was either underweight or overweight.

I have the same problem with this blog. When I was nominated for the Liebster Award I found I did not qualify. I’m too big.
