he weighs 130- same as me. He works out and runs/cycles etc, like me. That's why we get along well... both very active. He's 5'7, has muscle- just NO FAT

Wait a minute,,,, he only weighs 135??? Does he work out like you? My daughter thinks these j-rockers are cute that dress up like girls that are really thin but they have no muscle on them. I'm very impressed by your record and I feel your need to acheive. I worked with a guy once that was so thin and so was his girl friend he once said something.. Better finish this in an e-mail

I'm looking to be lighter again, for one, because I use to place in overall women's standing in decent sized races. I put on weight after losing a job and a running injury shortly after graduating college a couple yr ago. I want to perform like I did at 95-100, with more muscle. So I'd be happy with 105-112. My boyfriend weighs the same as me right now, and it's hard for him to understand the struggle I've had losing weight this time around. He thinks I'm overweight, but supports my efforts. I'd love to hear him refer to me as pretty or beautiful, not just "cute"

Question to you. Your LW was 89# did you ever eat? I'm going to guess that you are going to be a lot healthier and stronger at 105 then you were at 89 unless your supper short. I am so stuck at 120 but my but is getting smaller and tighter and I'm going to guess it is that F/M thing going on. My daughter has seen on some of the chat boards that she is on about girls being skinny fat. I'm thinking your solid and getting rock hard. Have you ever listened to Jillian Michaels? She is 5'2" and for the show goes down to 115. She did say she feels a lot better at 130 but doesn't like wearing size 10 at 135. This is one of the first real people that I can believe her when she talks numbers. On the tv you hear "I'm 150 and a size 2." BS and I can catch a football too if it's thrown from just out of camera shot. How stupid do they think they are? I could do those 2 miles on the elipical in heals too if I wanted to but I choose to think their not worth my time. So take that. Insert laser hammer to the head of stars trying to make big money selling diet products to us that workout with ourselfs as our coaches but we will keep the weight off unlike the yoyo people in holywood. As you can tell I have no use for them. Keep me posted if you can get a 6-pack because that is my goal and If you have a short cut please share. I am working up to 150 hanging rev. crunches and have them burn. I am at 75 and 2 miles on the elipical on level 7 out of 20 moving back into level 8.

Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I put this post up not only as a motivator for myself... but also to let anyone else know who has been treated this way, that they aren't alone. I suppose this is why we are all here. To get through challenges together. It's hard sometimes to remember that we need to be healthy above all- Making healthful food choices, exercising, and loving ourselves...which may be the most difficult thing.

So enough about your but. I saw that guy walking down the street and swing my car real close to him and hit the auto door open button and set him in his place. Your friend in crime lynn gadget. You know I have to test market this stuff and no more deserving then this guy. I also tested the slam dunk that is a super size mallet with laser sights on it so I tested that one too and bulls eye into the ground he went. dead center just like the wii target golf, then I tested the poof button which is close to the big stink bug that they have at one of the shows in florida at disney. I hit the button and out came a big fart for him to linger and enjoy. Back to the drawing board. Lynn

Please completely ignore that guy! Some people are just mean, honestly. They feel horrible about themselves and only feel better cutting somebody else down.

Keep up the good work! You're awesome!

LOL @ Lynn's translation

As for the nasty comment, kids have no respect, they are rude and they like to get a rise out of people, I'd dismiss it as some immature, probably upset miscreant who was late for his minimum wage job and wanted to tick you off to get you moving.

As for the boyfriend...sure it wasn't deer in the headlights syndrome? My husband doesn't respond to anything brought up about weight out of fear of saying the wrong thing, so positive stuff doesn't come out of his mouth either. He thinks I will second guess him I guess.

I know we all need that positive reinforcement, that's why we have girlfriends...the men in our lives are too chicken to say anything...unless they are anonymously driving by and yell slurs whether they mean them or not!

Just had a thought. Maybe you need to clean your ears and he said fine ass!! By looking at your picture. When I look at some of our young people and see what our food is doing to us maybe he has a mrs. robinson fedish and he likes his woman with some life in them and the ones that get out and do something other than sit. So you with the fine ass tell me how you find that much time to work out. Keep it up and don't get hit with the drowl from those yound boys. You little heart breaker you. You are raising the bar. Good job. Maybe you need some form fitting yoga pants. Go to the store and try on a good pair of yoga pants, turn around and check out you backside. I have to do this all the time. Is it comphy or fromp and dump. You look different when you put on girl clothes. I need to go on what not to wear. Some days I look in the mirror and think what are you wearing???? I am going to be in the fashion bug fashion show and it took me 3 hours to find something I found cute. It's not that the clothes worn't cut it was that I have been working out and lost some inches and I'm not use to the new look. Keep your chin up so you don't fall off your bike and keep up the good work. Lynn

I agree with what everyone here has said. He just probably yelled what he thought was the meanest thing he could say.
As they say "Don't let the Bast*rds get you down".

Don't let some strangers stupid remark reflect on who you are and what you are. People who do those things are generally pretty powerless in life and the only way they can feel like they have any power is to do that to a total stranger and make a fast getaway.

Keep your head up and focused. You are a way better person than he is.

Just ignore the idiot. Some people call names without even thinking what they mean. I have a friend who calls people morons, or dufus simply because he doesn't like them. Don't let a punk pull you down.

Ounch. I've been there about height(had drunken undergrads yell "Willloowww" - yes the 1980 movie and I guess they thought I resembled Willows wife). You deserve unconditional positive regard and acknowledgement of the steps you are taking; let him know it!:-) For now take some love from all of us and know that you are a powerful, beautiful, and amazing person not defined by numbers on a scale.

You said it was a "younger" male. It's typical immaturity. It doesn't have anything to do with you personally - no matter who was in your place, he would have come up with a nasty remark to yell. So sad that he doesn't have positive ways to interact with his environment.

This has happened to me as well. Kids seem to think it's hilarious to yell slurs out car windows (where they're safe) at people who are running or biking. The way I see it is that I'm out there getting fit (and looking damn good!) and they're not. Their day will come :)

I've also learned not to depend on other people to bring me up when I need a lift. If I waited around for others to give me what I needed, I'd still be fat. Don't lift your expectations so high from your boyfriend. He's not a mind reader ;) When I told my husband what happened, he was more upset about them getting away with it than he was about what was said.

Keep looking inside yourself and know you are making a wonderful change in yourself. Don't let other people deter you :)

Please don't let this random guy get you down - he has no idea what he's talking about! And he probably was feeling pretty crummy about himself that day and tried to make someone else feel bad.

As for your boyfriend - try not to take it personally because guys are sometimes clueless as to how to respond in these situations; they just think differently than women do.

So what I'm guessing is that you need a translation so here it is. Nice glutes babe and I wish my lazy ass was doing something other than sitting in this car but I am so self centered that all I care about is getting this stupid crap that I do every day done. I'm a jerk! no body loves me and I I don't know how to change the depressing life I am living. Oh and ya not to forget man I'd like to see that naked slipping between my sheets.
As far as your boyfriend goes Have you seen the commercial that says "that's what the box says". I will translate that too. Your looking hot and I want you to keep going because I want to be the guy with the hot chick on my arm and I hope you still want me. What else does the box say? emoticon 6 miles on your bike?? You go girl.

Why does some jerk always feel better doing that? He probably has his own issues if you know what I mean? Don't let him get you down!!!

Don't let one jerk get you down. It's hard to do and easy to say but just keep thinking positive and keep up your hard work. Show that "fat ass" that was driving the car you're a better person than he is.

Remember: You were biking, and his lumpy butt was parked in the seat of a car doing all the work for him. ;)

It's hard sometimes to not let cutting remarks dig into us. But take pride in who you are and how far you have come. I'd say from the description of your workout that you are anything but a "fat ass." You are beautiful and you are doing an amazing job of working toward your goals. Hold tight to that -- this journey is for you!

I work out more than anyone I know. Usually I pick 2 sometimes 3 days where I train. Yesterday I ran in the morning 6+ miles, worked out for and hour at the gym at lunch, then biked after work. On the last stretch of my bike ride I turned onto a one way street and was making my way to the edge of the road (but probably slowed down the car behind me slightly) when a younger male driver yelled "fat ass" out the window. I've never been called that before, at least not since middle school when another girl was looking for something new to pick on (who was heavier than me!). I went home and told my boyfriend (skinny man) about it and he didn't say anything. I thought he'd comfort me with something, tell me I was beautiful or even defend me in some way... but he didn't. I even said I don't think you disagree with that statement, and nothing. Needless to say, I feel down today after working very hard to try and achieve my goals through healthy diet and exercise...
