Medifast Day 90 -- My Motivation Posters

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

It's another beautiful Fall day here and I'm actually cold. I got to wear my cute little jacket though. Last night I made some motivational posters for my workout room (I know, it's way overdue). I realize that I only have 77 more days to lose 20 more lbs! The pressure is definitely on and there's no room for slacking. Gotta keep focused. Live, eat, and breathe my goal weight.

The countdown has begun...

Strategically placed in front of my treadmill in case I feel like not running.

And I'm working on a 4th one with healthy images on it like food and exercises.

Not much going on today except more work drama. Today we got our company shirts for next Monday's in-service day where the whole company gathers in a hotel conference room and gets training. We had to order the shirts a month ago and I ordered a medium. I'm now a size small so I had to exchange my shirt. Seeing this my boss loudly exclaims that the shirts must OBVIOUSLY run big and she needs a smaller size too. She doesn't. Cue her being mad and stewing silently at her desk for the next 2 hours. She also said it's only because she has "boobs" implying that I somehow do not. She joined a gym yesterday and I hope sincerely for my peace at work that she starts exercising regularly and stops eating red velvet cupcakes for breakfast.

I don't even update people with my weight loss at work or at home anymore. I feel like now I'm just pissing everyone off. Nothing I can say or do would make them less pissed off so I just stay silent and somehow still manage it. Most days I sit at my desk and read Sparkpeople blogs and drink my water in silence. emoticon My mom seems to be bitter that she is slowly gaining and when we go shopping now I'm needing smaller pants and she has to get larger ones. I stopped going shopping. It's getting quite lonely. When you change your habits and those around you don't, you look like the jerk. All I'm trying to do is better my life and overall happiness.

77 days.

    Well firstly emoticon on making some AWESOME posters!! Sorry though about everything else. Like honestly what the heck is wrong with your boss, she needs to get off your case. I hope her gym membership really does have an effect. Sorry about your mom though. It's sad when the ones closest to us aren't on our side. Luckily the only person I really need on my side is my husband and he supports me so I don't care what anyone else has to say. Don't let naysayers get you down. Your health is what matters not the negativity you're being faced with. emoticon emoticon

    The world is always going to be full of haters--surround yourself with the supporters :) Just remember, people project thier biggest insecurities, so when you feel like they are hating on you, they are really just hating on themselves.

Hang in there--you are not alone!

    Great job on those posters!

Going through weight loss can be lonely. It can be hard to find family/friends that support you, but that's why SparkPeople is here. I don't really discuss my dieting with anyone...maybe my sister sometimes, but mostly I save it for on here. I find SP are more supportive and understanding because they share the same struggles and similar goals.

    I understand that. Its hard not to be able to share your experience with someone. This is what SparkPeople is for me, a place to share my triumphs and struggles. I don't really talk about it with others. Sometimes with my husband but he really has no idea what I'm going through as he cannot GAIN weight no matter what he does/eats. And he comes from a family of naturally skinny people. They've never exercised a day in their lives. So I talk as much as I need on SP and talk about other stuff with the rest of the world.

    Since the weather is so nice right now, have you thought about asking your mom to go on a walk with you? You could spend time together, talking, but she's getting exercise at the same time. I know how mom's are so I know you can't really say "if you ate better, and exercised, you wouldn't be gaining weight" but somehow, Mom's feel totally justified in saying something that like that to us. Or maybe you could go about it a different way. If you have a healthy recipe that tastes really good, you could tell your mom "Look at this amazing recipe I tried the other day" .. maybe slip some healthy recipes into her diet?

    I also cannot mention my diet or how much weight I have lost to my sister and to a lesser extent my bf. He asked this morning if I had a goal in mind and I was vague and said we have months of dieting to go. He didn't think I needed to lose weight but I know it scares him on some level.

It seems these days you have to keep your victories to the pages of Sparkpeople.
