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!
