Just as I was getting confidence...

Thursday, January 23, 2014

I have been so good. I have been exercising, using the treadmill, some weight lifting, eating better, getting healthy. I have lost 34 pounds, several inches, and at least 2 pant sizes. Five times day, I take 2 minutes and run down steps at work and back up (I work on the 4th floor). I do 30 -60 on the treadmill. I have a health coach I talk to 3-4 times a year... mandatory for my husbands insurance. I spoke to her last night and she was SO PROUD of me for everything I have done. My husband and kids are SO PROUD of me. I am proud of me.. and all that came crashing down today.

I found out a friend of my parents came in to see one of the Doctors I work for yesterday. Told the girls at front desk that he has known me since I was three. He couldn't remember my last name...been married for 20 years, and only remembers my maiden name.. Anyway, told them he knew Laura.. you know, the one with the fat ass. Thanks.... just what I wanted to hear. Just as things were turning around for me. Just as I was feeling better about myself. Why continue to try when this is how I am going to be described. emoticon

    What a jerk, I was actually think of two other words that begin with Jack and end with a donkey reference but I think that might get me into trouble here. I guess that guys parents never taught him to be polite in society. Also, not only was he disrespectful to you, but didn't he think a comment like that would make your co-workers feel uncomfortable?

    You should be proud of yourself. People are mean and thoughtless, don't let them derail your confidence. You are doing fabulous!!

    Thank you everyone for the kind words, that helped a lot. And you're right, I stated this for me, I've lost weight, I feel better about myself, and the next time I see him, he will be shocked at how good I look. Thanks again!

    Don't let this inconsiderate boob get to you!! You are doing very well and he should be ashamed of himself describing anyone like that. That is just rude! Don't let rude comments derail you. Keep on doing what youre doing. You are doing this for you not anyone else. Just think how good it will feel when he sees you again and you are thinner and healthier. emoticon

    Sorry this happened to you, what other people say can be hurtful; but what is more important is what you believe about yourself. Remember all of the accomplishments and do your best to forget what other people do and say.

    Well some folks would describe him using one of those words combined with dumb, jerk, thoughtless or any number of combinations. You need to focus on the present and future. Several years ago an older gentleman who is a very nice and caring person came up to me at a church social and said that if I kept eating like I was I would need two chairs to sit on. He wasn't being mean just concerned. He is dead now and I can sit on one chair and have space for a child to share. He would be happy, I am. You continue to be happy with your progress.
