I have friends that are mad at me!

Monday, June 13, 2011

I feel sad that my friends that have chosen to stay on the same path,wont talk to me.They wont email or take my calls.We talked one time and they say we have nothing in common anymore(I dont eat my weight in pizza,fried chicken and donuts)We used to go in the mornings and eat at buffets,McDonald's for lunch and Icecream from baskin robbins.I still email them and ask how they are doing.I am too afraid to mention my weight loss!They get majorly pissed and call me names but,I wont stoop to thier level.My mama raised me better.I said we could go for coffee or lunch but,They texted me HELL NO!My heart hurts for our lost friendship and NO I've never thrown it in thier faces or even mentioned my journey!My husband says they are jealous of me because I have changed and they stayed the same,and if I told them I gained the weight back they would come running...Sorry,who needs friends like them?What do ya'll think ?Should I stop trying?Are they a lost cause? emoticon emoticon SUSAN

    I agree with everything everyone said. You need to find different friends where food is not a "fun" activity for them. They probably have no other activities to do that are fun besides eating junk food. They sound very emotionally immature by calling you names. Reminds me of how some teenagers act at times!!!

    I agree with everything people stated above. I guess your friends only fun activity is eating. They actually call you names? How sad. It sounds like they have a lot of emotional maturing to do.

    True friends should be able to understand and support your decision to maintain your new healthy lifestyle.

Keep up the good work and find some new, better friends!

    To think that these people were your friends. They are just self centered and down right mean. I agree with what everyone has said. Your accomplishments have been awesome. Celebrate your victories with those who really love you. Be proud!

    I agree with all the others' posts. These people aren't your friends, let them go and don't look back.

    These types of people can only do one thing and that is drag YOU down. They are really not friends if they are treating you this way. You tried, now dump them!

    Ditto to everything that has been said before me except for deleting their numbers. Keep the numbers so you know who not to answer if they do call you.

I've had to let friends go in the past who were not healthy for me (physically and emotionally). It is not an easy thing to do but I have never regretted it.

    Don't waste more time chasing them, they're not worth it. You've worked hard to get your life aligned with your vision. Stay the course and keep your focus. Don't be surprised, though, if one day down the line, you hear from one of them. Even then, don't gloat, just LOVE YOUR LIFE!

My condolences on your recent losses, but you've got a VERY insightful husband.... FOR LIFE!

    Jealous? I think so.. As I've heard over and over in that past and even the present, Misery loves miserable company. Sounds like they aren't really the kind of people who are very happy with themselves or they wouldn't be trying to bring you down and make you miserable.
I have to agree with everyone else... It's time to lose their numbers and make new friends!!! My hugs and prayers are with you! emoticon

    Oh man...you're husband was right on point! You do not need to be friends with people like that. I wouldn't even necessarily have called them friends for even acting like that....shame on them. They aren't happy with themselves so they can't possibly be happy for you! I'm so sorry that has happened but you need and deserve better people in your life. *hugs* Keep it movin... :)

    They aren't true friends so there's nothing to hold on to and not much loss if you really look at it, hang in there.

    Time to cut your ties. REAL friends would never treat some one this way. Surround yourself with people that celebrate in your success!!

    First, it saddens me that anyone would be mean to you. That is not cool at all. You are too nice to be treated that way.

I find the angry displays and lashing out at you offensive and completely unacceptable behavior.

You deserve better. I would drop them like a hot potato. But that is a tough thing to do - so just follow your heart and trust your instincts. Look how far those amazing instincts have gotten you, gorgeous.

Hugs.

    Wow! It's too bad they don't want to follow along with you on this wonderful Spark journey of learning to live a healthy lifestyle. I guess there's nothing more that you can do. Hopefully they will come around eventually and want to join the fun! Good for you for sticken to your plan!!

    I agree with everyone! They were not really friends to begin with! A true friend would be happy that you were improving your health so that you could be around longer. Your husband is right, they are jealous. It is too bad that they are this way, but they are just sources of stress for you now, and that is not good for you.

I have to say, delete their numbers from your contact list!
They are no good for you! Keep your chin up and make some new friends!

    With friends like those, who needs enemies ?? Goodness, what kind of people were these friends ! A real friend would be supportive of you at all times. These folks sound just plain petty. Which is a dreadful shame.

Don't let them get to you. Whatever is going on, this is all about THEM, not you !! For some reason, they have chosen you as the target of their spite. Why ? who knows, but if they won't return any calls or emails, then perhaps it's time to cut them loose. This really is not a reflection on anything you have done. So, don't take their words personally. This is their loss, not yours.

As you've already corrected noted, you're above that kind of behavior.

Don't worry, you'll make new friends with people who will appreciate you !!!

    What kind of people are these? If the only thing you had in common was a pact to stay fat, I'd say you probably DON'T have anything in common any more. I'm sure they are hurting your feelings, so why would you want to go back for more? Do you really want to waste your life on people who will only be around you if you eat alot? I don't think so! These people are not what friends are about.

    I am so sorry to hear that you are having so much trouble with your friends. Its hard to see people change especially when it comes to weight loss. People can feel left behind but that is not your problem. Let them have their pity party. If they can't realize that you are the same person in the inside then they aren't worth your time. You have decided to make a positive change in your life and you should be surrounded by people who bring you positive energy. I know the lose of friends can be hard but if they truly care for you they will come back to you in time. Don't let them ruin your major accomplishments. You should be truly proud of what you have done. Keep up the amazing work!!!!!

I love mornings!

Saturday, June 11, 2011

My treadmill has been dusted off,new batteries have been put in my elliptical because soon the heat will have me cornered.I love the mornings!I'ts all new and fresh,the birds are singing,the weed eater and lawn mowers humming and the air is cool and amazingly enough,sounds like a whisper.It takes alot for me to abandon the outdoors exercise for indoors but i have to eventually.I still will take my walks in the evening hours.But,alot of people are still holding that allmighty cell phone in thier hands and not looking for me so I slap on a neon tee and reflective shorts,carry a flash light and off I go.We are getting new sidewalks here for the first time too.Well,Off I go!!! emoticon SUSAN

    There are so many times when I think, "Wow, how did that parent get to be so messed up?" I have friends who still struggle with things from childhood, I read stories about unbelievable abuse (actually, I try my best *not* to read them), I watch people who seem to have no clue how to step outside of themselves and care more about their children then their own needs or pressures or whatever. So it is so comforting to hear things like what you wrote. Good for your mom for creating a legacy in you, and good for you for recognizing it. It's a beautiful thing.

Thursday, June 09, 2011

YES,he does help fold laundry!Mr.Manly Man holds up my new smaller underwear and says...Who's are these?I answer,Mine,why?Well usually you wear those granny panties(laughing on his part)I still do,to exercise because they are cotton.I picked up a pair of his new unders and said whose are these? your brothers?(he's like the abonible snowman on Rudolph)His face turned to stone and he could only say TOUCHEE(TOOSHAY)for those of you that havent heard that term.He,looked like a little kid caught with thier hand in the cookie jar!!When i started laughing...He apologized,wrapped his arms around me and said woman!you are shrinking..... emoticon sparkers

    That's funny. He sees you daily so its probably harder for him to notice how much you have changed. And I agree with wearing the cotton grandma panties to workout but when you get home and shower from your workout, put on some cute little boyshorts and flaunt that tight ass in front of your man and I bet he will notice now! Mine sure does!
