I'm doing this for ME!
Monday, May 11, 2009
I hate when people tell me I don't need to lose weight. My body hides weight really well (which I am extremely thankful for), a lot of my friends think I weigh 130 lbs. right now (I'm 147 lbs.), but it causes a lot of people to question why I'm trying to lose weight. I'm not trying to get down to 110 lbs. or anything (I honestly don't even think I could get to that if I tried!), I'm just trying to slim down to MY healthy weight of 130 lbs. Even though I'm 5'9", which is pretty tall, I shouldn't weigh 150 lbs., it's too much for my frame. Even if I weighed 135 lbs. right now I'd still be trying to lose inches, because I have love handles, a front pouch (I don't mind having a small one, I think they're very feminine and sexy, but mine is too large, haha), and thighs that rub against each other when I walk.
Oh, and one thing that REALLY kills me: I was talking with some friends about our other friend's new girlfriend, and I was saying she had a great body. My boyfriend's best friend pointed out that so do I, and I thanked him, but mentioned how I had to lose some weight. He then said, "Stop trying to get compliments from people." That made me so mad! Just because I told him I needed to lose weight does not mean I wanted him to compliment me and tell me I look perfect. It's very frustrating, because I'm trying to look my best for ME, not so my boyfriend's best friend can think I look good. And my boyfriend thinks I look perfect as I am, so I'm not doing this for him, either.
Oh, and no one on SP has said anything to me about it, it's mostly friends who say that, I'm just venting a bit. Thanks for letting me get out my frustration!
