Day 6 Paleo w/ Juicing & Mean people

Friday, May 24, 2013

Day 6 and the scale is still stuck though I feel like I have lost weight. Grrr ahh this patience game. I know it will move.

Has a couple of very busy days with showing properties, and working on completing paintings for shows. I really do love painting so much that I forget to do other things... and then I end up mismanaging all my activities!
"Behind the Glass" watercolor painting - made it in the juried show and I am really excited as almost 200 paintings were submitted and only 55 made it in!

Yesterday I had an experience that really bothered me.
Sis and I were going down to the loading dock when we ran into a neighbor. She has been on medifast so sis told her that she looked really good. She went on and on about how difficult it was and how she needs to lose more weight - Then turns to sis and tells her: Look at you! you look amazing you have lost so much! Sis said thank you but what about Ven? Look at how much she has lost! to which she gave me a blank look. Then said: how much have you lost? I said since you don't remember what I looked like I guess it really doesn't make a difference how much I lost. She then turned to sis and said: Well you must have lost as much as I did if not more? And sis told her: I LOST ENOUGH FOR YOU TO NOTICE and we walked away.
Sis tried to tell me that people in the building don't see me as often as they do her but that is just a bunch of bull. Because a month before I started juicing I had spent a whole day with this neighbor at a farewell party of another neighbor. And I don't have an issue with people who don't tell me how great I look or how much I have changed , as I don't base my success on their opinion. But it does bother me when people who were the first ones to point out how fat I was or how much weight I had gained but now that I am taking control of things... they say nothing. I have issues with mean people.

I am going to try and avoid events this weekend just because I don't feel like thinking LOL. Have my juice ready for tomorrow and going to get my list ready for the morning for produce shopping. :D
Hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend!

    That's OK, the neighbor did it on purpose. No big deal. Just ignore it.

    Crafter = Artist :)
    I go to fairs all the time with my jewelry, last time I attempted to sell some of my paintings but they were originals... tough to do at a craft fair. I want to get print of some of them, just don't know how to start .

    CONGRATULATIONS!! on the new addition in your family! I can imagine - I haven't been blessed yet with a hubby or children but am hopeful that any day now the right one will come along :D

    You are right about the neighbor. Sis made me put in the give away pile the shirt I was wearing the other day. She blames it for the confusion -says it's too big LOL
    I know my body is resetting right now. I can be patient. A couple more weeks and then I am back to juicing full time again. Then i can stay where I am LOL.
    Are you already at your daughter's? What are you planning for the weekend?

    your neighbor's behavior is a reflection on her, NOT YOU!! at the end of the day you just gotta mark it up to ignorance.
    I'm proud of your painting getting selected, thats an amazing accomplishment. I'm a crafter, and I love to pretend I'm an artist... LMAO....
    when I'm playing with my paints i loose track of entire weeks... but it is so much fun!!
    My grandson came tonight - 9 lbs 2 oz - he's grandbaby #3, it's amazing how much the heart grows with the addition of each one! Life is Good!

    I had fun today trying on clothes that were in the "back of the closet" that I haven't worn in years, i was completely surprised by the number of things that are already too big!! No matter what a dumb neighbor says, finding clothes that are too big that i couldn't wear a year ago, I know that what i'm doing for me is working, and I know how I feel, and it's awesome!!

    everytime i weigh and the scale doesn't go up i consider a success, don't get me wrong, i much prefer it to go down but i think my body has to reset along the way... it's sad the small things that put a smile on my face!!

    have a great weekend,
