Current Frustration

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Ok. Let's "chat" for a moment shall we?

I am absolutely irritated with this chick who is in the office next to me. She has been noticing my progress and weight loss and has decided to go do something herself....

I like this girl. She's really nice. She's always been a pretty good friend and I USED to enjoy seeing her pass through the office.. USED TO.

She's been taking Adipex for the last month. She doesn't eat healthy. She doesn't work out (because she says she's too lazy and she just doesn't have the time). I'll agree with the too lazy part... but DOESN'T HAVE THE TIME?! She gets off 2 hours before I do in the afternoon and she has no children to go home to in the evening. She can FIND more time than I can.

I guess my frustration boils down to this --> Today she comes traipsing into the office and says "Holly, I'm at 180!" Which means she has lost 26 lbs since she started taking that little pill. And like I'M supposed to be impressed or something. Now, don't get me wrong...I know I sound like a jealous wench, but I'm not particularly jealous. I really want to ask her... How FIT are you? How fast can you run a mile? How much can you lift? Do you squat? What are your fitness goals? Can you do a side plank? Can you do a regular plank? I'm irritated because it's like she's rubbing it in my face that she's losing all this weight from taking this magic little pill when I bust my ever loving rump daily in the gym and eat my 6 small meals a day and count every single calorie, gram of protein , fat, and carb I ingest.

I am happy with what I have done so far. I can tell that I am stronger. I can tell my resistance is better. I have gone up in weights the last few weeks. I can run faster and squat deeper. I feel tighter, sexier, and better. I feel that if I have one cheat meal every now and then I will not ruin the work I have done.

My main issue is NO I AM NOT IMPRESSED THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN THE LAZY WAY OUT WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT LOSS. NO I AM NOT IMPRESSED BECAUSE AS SOON AS SOMEONE DOES WAVE A CHEESEBURGER UNDER YOUR NOSE YOU'RE GONNA FAIL. I AM NOT IMPRESSED!!! as a matter of fact I AM ANGRY, because you make a farce out of what hard working gym rats accomplish by blood, sweat, blisters, and tears every single day. It ticks me off, because you THINK you're doing something... but you aren't. What you're doing is temporary. It isn't going to benefit you in the long run. When the holidays are over and that 26 lbs are back and your magic pills run out... what then?

Ok. that is all.

    I totally get where you are coming from. Its frustrating when someone takes the easy way out and seems to be doing better. In the long run though you will be better off. People that take diet pills are playing with their health.

    Hey just remember in the long run you are ahead! Once she stops taking those pills, she will regain all the weight that she lost. If you stick to your lifestyle you won't put those extra pounds back on.

I know your are proud of yourself. And I keep seeing this all over pintrest and totally agree that everyone needs to stop doing it... "stop comparing your behind the scenes to everyone's highlight reel." and "Stop comparing yourself to others, you should be comparing yourself to what you were yesterday"

    Babe.....imma keep it real with you.....

Obviously she is jealous and threatened by you, and naturally as a human being that happens, because you look incredible, your mind, and body are focused and determined. She sees this glowing, healthy, sexy girl who has incredible self control, and by the way things are going, is developing a fitness model body she can only dream of, and is not ready to pay the price for.

So she lashes out, trying to pull you down, distract you, by sending out negative vibes.

Babe....pop your collar and ignore. Send out compassionate vibes because you see a bigger picture, more than she can see right now.

She sees you, and you, a loving Christian woman who embodies everything she wants to be, but isn't..... she is anxious, stressed, and challenged.

YOU gat this babe... Shut it down. (((Hugs)))

    It's hard to deal with people who chose other methods of weight loss, and honestly, sometimes, I just want to punch people in the throat... YOU are doing things that you need to do for yourself to be healthy and happy. in my opinion, it's the right way. I would love to hear her response to your questions. Hang in there, you're doing it right!

    OMG - I totally get where you are coming from. My sister in law sells advocare and takes it all the time and has lost like 50 pounds. She acts like she's so fit, she's not. She is really mushy. Honestly I just ignore it - if she can't do it naturally, it's going to bite her in the @ss :)

Working out and eating right is the only way to get fit. emoticon emoticon emoticon
