So i was at a wedding this weekend

Thursday, March 06, 2014

so this past weekend my best friend since high school got married. i was a bridesmaid and my two older kids were in the wedding, my son the ring barrier and my daughter a flower girl. so why am i blogging about it? who cares people say. well let me tell best friend went to culinary school, graduated and is now working in a hospital cafeteria. she says she has not time to exercise or eat right. which maybe i am a bad person but i see it as you always have time, its just a matter of making it. she told me she just didnt see how i lost 20 lbs since the last time she saw me, since i have more of a busy life, then she does. i explained to her what spark people was, that it isnt a diet, its a life change. she told me she needed to go a diet bad. i told her not to go on a diet, which some of her friends gave me a dirty look when i said this. i told her, its a life change, not a diet. diets you tend to fall back and gain weight again. i asked her, what do you think happens when your done with your diet and you go back to eating what you want again? she looked at me baffled and she said she didnt i answered her very seriously. you gain weight again, and sometimes you gain it back ten fold. my best friends sister is a physical therapist looked at her shaking her head agreeing with me, told her if she really wanted to loose weight she has to start small. we both told her that the weight just appear over night, it takes time when you do it right. all she did was roll her eyes.
well while she bough her dress 6 months ago, and put it on, on saturday. she could barely fit into it, her back fat rolled over her dress, and she have 2 different spanks on and a a corsette she still couldnt hardly fit into it. i felt bad for her, and i felt guilty that my dress was too big on me. i feel like a bad person for it, but i know its not my fault. i just wish she would listen to her sister and myself

    Never feel guilty for positive accomplishments. You did well, both for yourself and to try to convince your friend to change her lifestyle. Kudos for you!

  When she sees the wedding pictures it could be her "aha" moment. All you can do is support her in her endeavors.
