Seriously: somebody sent this to me in spark mail.
" I guess I figure if a person wants it enough they figure out a way to lose the weight."
As if I Don't want it enough? I've fought and struggled with this my whole f-ing life.
I'm feeling offended right now. Saying something like this to some one who has a hundred lbs to lose is NOT helpful.

    They may have meant well, but I can see why it wouldn't seem that way. Forget 'em!

    You just keep doing your thing, working your plan, and be the best you can be.

    I too have had some really weird remarks made to me. One of the most offensive was asking me if I was "lying" about what I was eating. grrr. I just want you to know I understand the frustration of working your a** off for something with no results and then having someone imply you're not working hard. You are doing everything you can and I hope eventually that body of yours just lets that weight go--my body too. In the meantime, we are doing our best and even though the scales might not be showing us the love, our bodies are healthier and happier. Hang in there.

    LOL what a motivational speaker you have there! Jackass!
    That is a person who only makes themselves better by belittling someone else. They are not worth your time. Lol lose 150lbs by not giving them another thought!

    You will do well, have faith in yourself & to hell with any negativity! PERIOD!!!

    V~ It's almost a FULL MOON...consider the source!

    I think you are doing great, just take it one day at a time like the rest of us have to do. Sometimes it is a step forward and sometimes it is three backward. Just keep pluggin along...it will come if you keep on keeping on.

    Don't let the haters get you down. You know that you're doing the best you can. Just keep it up. emoticon
