Some people hate to see others succeed

Monday, September 30, 2013

Mom always told me to get rid of the people that are negative.They always seem to drag a person down!They cant stand to see others accomplish goals that they wont even try to reach for.I'm going to talk about my ex-friend Rachael.I said I would never speak about her but I am going to now.She was the one negative in my life I kept around until recently.The day started beautiful enough until I met this bitter,angry,overweight,negative human in the park to walk and have lunch afterward.I am a positive sunny person.I love people.I volunteer with senior citizens,animal shelters,food drives,cancer walks,coat and blanket collections,you name it I'm doing it!So I invited her to help us with coats for kids.Alot of kids go without warm coats.She snarled at me and rolled her eyes.I tried ignoring her rudeness and went to order my Subway sandwich.It just so happened to be an oven roasted chicken breast(6inch)She said it wasn't enough and slopped Chinese food buffet on top of my food!!!I was mad but held it in.I removed the top of my sandwich bread and started eating it.Are you for real?she shouted.Yes I laugh I am!Well before she finished with her rant and told me about myself I knew I couldn't have her around anymore.I've known her for 19+years and had just saw her worst behavior.I said I would never give up on her and tried to talk rationally to her.It wasn't happening!You're selfish and are not all that she yelled.I told her to have a nice life and moved to another table.My daughter works in the mall and drove me home after work.Mom she said,you can't keep being friends with Rachael she advised.She always upsets you!It was then that I knew that my so called friend was history.I feel a little sad but It also feels like a huge weight was lifted off my chest!I am all that in my book.Im a very loving and kind human being and I don't care who knows it.I am who I am and wont change my sunny attitude for anyone!!! emoticon emoticon SUSAN

  Susan--- Your daughter's advice is the right advice. When you have known someone so long, it is "sad" (as you say) to see this "association" end --because you know that it cannot become a happy friendship...ever. Never change your sunny attitude, Susan!
Hugs!

I believe in miracles

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Waiting for the phone to ring was agony.Everytime I picked it up and looked at the caller ID My heart fell.I was waiting for word about a lump I had in my neck after it was biopsied.Finally the call came and with a dry mouth and racing heart I answered.Susan?Yes I answered it's okay just tell me quickly.It's benign she yelled with as much relief as I felt.I couldn't speak because I had tears pouring down my face.I cried,I laughed,I danced!!Praise the Lord is all I can say!!I have to go next Friday and get it surgically removed but THAT I can handle!! emoticon SUSAN

I believed the weather man

Friday, September 20, 2013

I got up this morning and made a nice fat bowl of oatmeal.I flipped on the weather and was hearing the weather man saying our area shouldn't expect
any rain for at least another 2 hours.Great!I thought well that gives me time to eat and hit the walking trail and it will not rain until I'm safely in the door.
WRONG!I'm halfway through the trail when I hear thunder!I'm thinking It's in the distance so I should be ok.Next thing I know,I'm dripping wet and realize I left my rain parka on the table!! emoticon 30 minutes later soaked to the bone and muddy from the trail being sloppy wet.I made it home.Dropped onto the porch and it quit raining.I made up a few cuss words just in time for the double rainbow to pop out emoticon My DH said Stop believing the weather man honey! emoticon emoticon SUSAN

210 pounds???not anymore!!!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Having had a back injury I have actually been falling back into old habits.It was at a checkup that my new Doc asked me why was I having trouble.I had to face the truth and answer her.I was exercising and putting more calories in than was being burned.Snacking and eating at all hours.I was also afraid of reinjuring my back but,I guess deep inside it gave me an excuse to be LAZY!She said you can and will lose weight by the end of October or I'm going to put you on INSULIN!My mouth went dry and my heart jumped out of my chest.The tears were flowing and I was angry,scared and finally determined to do something about it.I relayed my woes to DH and he said Honey you are going to do this!He lubed my treadmill and elliptical(they were getting a little on the dusty side)and off I went.No pain so every day I increased my speed and time.The pounds were reluctant so I started back measuring and weighing food.Im happy to say I'm down to 188!!!!!...22 lbs since July 26th.Im feeling so much better and I get up,hit the exercise right away and pour myself a gallon of water from the fridge and put it out on the counter so I'll see it all day long.My clothes are bigger emoticon My muscles feel better and my attitude Is"Getter done"The Doc is flabbergasted and was so thrilled at my progress she gave me a $50 gift card to Wal Mart!She asked would I talk to some of her patients that are overweight.She took pics of me before and after wait till she sees the way after at end of October!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon SUSAN

Skinny pill?

Friday, September 13, 2013

Im was always hearing 3 of my ex friends mention a skinny pill.They will go for days without eating and just drink cokes or juice.Of course the weight comes right back on after they eat because its water weight.It's unhealthy and dangerous.All three,Terry is the worst want to be super skinny.Hayley is 5"5 and 100 lbs and Zoey is 5"6 and is about 105.I realized that they want to be around me because I make them look skinny-er.Personally they look like hunger victims on signs.I could make a stirfry meal for lunch and they would just pick at it.They always had something smart aleck to say to me putting me down and telling me about how I would be very pretty at 100 lbs!!We had an argument about my weight,Terry called me chubs and I said"with so called friends like you 3?I can live without the negatives!!Since then I've had rumors come back saying Im a bitch,im pregnant,Im having an affair and my dog bit the neighbors kid!!!They forgot to mention I'm an alien from Pluto!! emoticon Sticks and Stones.I feel so much better without all that negativity and learned their true colors at the same time.Sure they are skinny but Are they HAPPY???Are they HEALTHY? emoticon SUSAN

    Good riddens to those sucky frenemies. Obvously, they were not happy with their own bodies and tried to make themselves feel better by bringing you down. emoticon emoticon emoticon

  They aren't friends. You know that. Surround yourself with positive & supportive people. And shame on them....grrrrrr emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a good idea to have gotten rid of them. The things they were saying were not nice nor supportive! What kind of friends are they??? Not friends at all! I am sure it is hard for you to hear about the back stabbing that continues, but you are better off without them.
