Let's try this again.....

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I've gotten lazy, not so much with exercise as with eating, and you know what comes next--the weight. It's not real bad right now, but enough so an acquaintance felt compelled to make a "nice-nasty" remark about how she didn't know whether a sale at a local store had my size, but don't feel bad, she's right behind me--she's in a 14! It just so happens I _am_ a 14. Now, whether she honestly thought she was still smaller than me or whether she was just being an adult version of Mean Girls isn't the point; the point is that I'm choosing to treat it as a wake up call and get serious again. Which means bringing healthy snacks to work so that I'm not wasting money on the vending machine, being assertive with my husband on not eating butter and fat laden dinners, being intentional on my fruit and veggie eating, and using my cookbooks full of healthy recipes. I don't have to regain the weight and I won't. Knowing this acquaintance, she most probably will find something else to make nasty remarks about--but at least I'll force her to look for something besides my weight.

    Its great that you have found your motivation, even if it was some rude coworker. Soon enough she'll regret having ever said anything!

    nah, I wouldn't call her a friend....just someone I work with. Her cubicle's close to mine, unfortunately. Mostly I wear my headphones and ignore her, and chalk up the catty comments about anybody and everybody to her own issues. But I'm choosing to use this particular comment for my own good. Not that she'll ever know that--I try not to reward her by reacting when the nastiness is directed at me....
