BFL. Big Fat Liar.
So this morning my husband and I met with our financial planner.
We had lots to discuss. One thing was seeing if he could get me a cheaper rate on life insurance than what I'm currently paying. So he had to ask me a few questions.
Gained or lost more than 10 pounds in the past year?
48 pounds. (Wow! I hadn't realized how close to 50 I was!!)
He went through several more pages of medical questions. Blah blah SNORE. Then, he asked, "Have you had any surgeries in the last year?"
My husband raised his eyebrow.
I glared back.
He didn't out me. (What a smart SMART man).
...........................................so? Why'd I lie?....................
I have no idea. I regretted it instantly. But then, what was I supposed to do?
Say, "Oh yeah, I just remembered I had weight loss surgery two months ago?"
I don't know why I did that!!!
I guess in that instant, I didn't want to be judged. I didn't want him to think it was ALL surgery because DAMMIT, I lost over 30 pounds before surgery!!! But the reality is that I could not be at the weight I'm at today without it. I know that. I'm ashamed of myself for lying. That's not me.
And now, when he calls to give me a rate, I'll just have to say, "No thanks" to whatever policy he comes up with because I'm a BIG FAT LIAR.
Intead of maybe saving myself some money on life insurance, I lied. Ugh!!! Can I have a time machine? I need a do-over.
