The grass may look greener on the other side, but is it really?

There is a woman where I work who is always talking about looking like this woman who works a couple doors down from us. Tall and blonde and self assured. She is always saying if she had her figure and hair, she would be having a better life. She thinks doors will open up for her JUST because she looks like this woman. I told her you can do the same thing as the woman. She is a go getter. Well my coworker is convinced this woman down the hall has it all. WELL I got into a conversation with the woman and she is so nice, so self assured and so LAZY! She saw me coming from the stairwell and told me she wishes she had the nerve to climb stairs. I told her she looks pretty fit and she told me LOOKS being the key word in my sentence. She told me she has NO time for gyms, videos, or even walking up and down stairs at work. She says every 2 years she does LIPO when she sees she is looking out of shape. She told me she gets winded walking in from the parking lot to her office....and I seriously hope she was kidding. I told my co-worker and I said you think she has a perfect life? I see a heart attack on her horizon on day. AS FOR ME, I worry about myself and my family. I am happy with myself big or small and I will not crumble if i gain back all my weight. And I know I won't lose the love of my family especially my husband because when we fell in love I was very heavy and he loved all that about me. I can't waste time wanting to be like other people and trying to obtain everything they have. When you do that you waste time you could be spending on yourself and your family. I am happy being ME and that's the way it should be for everyone. Enjoy life!!
