You are trying real hard to lose your weight and be healthier but then you run into people who say to you, "I liked the old you. You use to go out to eat with me all the time." The problem with that is that we weren't happy with the old us. Being afraid of losing friends because we want to be healthy should not be something we need to deal with. I figure that I am doing this for me not for anyone else and if other people can not except that then that is too bad.
How many of us have had a co worker do this to them: One of my bosses know that I am working to lose weight but she seems to always try to sabotage me. Last week, she called me and asked me if I wanted anything from Wendy's as she was going out. I told her no thanks that I have my lunch with me. A couple of minutes later, she calls me again and asks me if I want to join her and another co worker for Chinese food. Again, I told her no thanks. This week, I walked into her office to talk to one of my other co workers and she had just come back from the supermarket. She pulls out a pint of ice cream, hot fudge and caramel topping, a large can of whipped cream, sprinkles and cherries and asks me if I wanted a sundae with them. I again told her no thanks. The real funny part is that she went and heated up a Lean Cuisine dinner then ate a hot fudge sundae and complains that she needs to lose weight. Kinda contradicting don't ya think. She is always saying that she needs to lose weight but sabotages herself with her food choices. When I stepped on the scale this past Monday for my weigh in, I had lost 5 pounds. Now if I gave into all the food she wanted me to "join" them in, that could of been a 5 pound gain instead. We can't let other people sabotage our efforts to lose weight. Stay strong and ask yourself if the temptations are worth the gains.
