The Ugly Green Monster

Friday, March 27, 2009

That ugly green monster rears it's ugly head at the worst possible times, and it happens to all of us. Sometimes we see someone else who has lost more weight, fits into a smaller size, or just seems to be doing better than us at simple willpower, and we get jealous. Envy is an ugly thing.

So when you feel this way, remember that everyone loses weight at a different rate because everyone's body is different. So if you are feeling envious of someone else's success and you are doing everything you possibly can to get health, cut yourself some slack. And if you are NOT doing everything you can, then try stepping up your routine and challenge yourself to do better.

    We all just need to see the good in what we already have. And know that you are trying to do something about it. I know that we all can have a hard time in weight loss and in life, but if we all stick together and help one another out you can get through anything.

    I think we can all relate to that at some time or another. And not just for weight loss issues. Some have better jobs or bigger houses. We need to be happy with what we have.

    This post is so appropriate for me right now. My husband eats everything in sight and stays slim. I, on the other hand, can walk by a cake store and gain 5 pounds. I have to resist the urge to add butter to everything he eats. haha (God I hope he doesn't read this)

    And don't go the other extreme and thing it has to be "all or nothing".

    But you can definitely do it! Just keep working towards your goals!!
