MissHaneefa created a wonderful challenge last week ...The 15In15 Challenge. You commit to lose 1 lb a week and by New Year's Eve we'll be 15 lbs down. Not sure if I want to lose 15 but if I could get 10 down I'll be a happy camper. Challenges are a fun way to encourage and support one another which is an important part in this journey. Thanks MissH!
With that said thank you for the encouraging comments many of you have left during my journey. They really meant alot to me and I try to return the favor as often as I can. They were the extra boost that I needed then and I don't think I would have come as far as I have. I'm pretty sure I would have given up a while ago.
Speaking of comments.
Over the weekend I ran into some people I haven't seen in over a year and oh the comments. Some were good while others were just stupid. One stupid one in particular was "Don't lose too much where you start to look sick". Are you serious? My sister said this same thing to me a month ago and my response then was "well people mostly look sick when they are sick so why would I?" This time I didn't waste my time with a rebuttal I just gave her a stare down. When I answered the question as to what I eat, she chimes in to state "oh THAT'S why you're losing weight because you don't eat meat!" My reply "WRONG Sherlock". I explained that I have tinkered with the idea of a vegetarian lifestyle for quite a while now and #1) after watching FoodNation by accident I was completely disgusted, #2) I have NEVER been regular...I'm talking once a month which is not right on so many levels. Since I stopped eating meat this has changed and I can finally join the "regular" crew.
I explained that I exercise almost everyday and once again she tried to get a few comments in..something about too much exercise. I was tuning her out by then but she actually made a comment that she exercised too much and that's why she didn't lose. What??? I definitely didn't entertain that.
What I don't understand is why people try to discourage or down what you are doing to try to better yourself. I am truly amazed. This is not a question for anyone reading more so just a comment.
*In the past week I was called "tiny"....... Joy. Now I know that I am not tiny and granted he was 6'4 and weighed 200+ lbs...but I was still cheesing hard inside.
Anywho enough rambling. Good nite all.
