Lucky You?!?!

I received a comment on my recent blog post "Size 3L Levi's Skinny Jeans!". The member wrote:

Great! Lucky you."

I removed her name and blog post response and responded to her via email. However I wanted to let EVERYONE who reads my blogs know that LUCK has nothing to do with it. Luck is meant for leprechauns and people who go to casinos. emoticon

I stayed on my DIY Medifast Plan for more than 19 weeks. Never cheated and always stayed diligent. It took sacrifice and hard work to get into the best shape of my life. So be more conscious of what half-hearted response / semi double sided compliments you post on peoples blogs.

    I had somebody tell me I was lucky to be an alcoholic (instead of an over eater) because I had AA. WOW! I just politely responded that there is OA & I don't participate in AA. I Worked very hard on overcoming so I can be who I am. I'm sorry somebody said something so rude to you. I consider you fortunate because you know who you wanted to be & WORK at becoming her!
    Stay Blessed!

    You have done a FANTASTIC job!! This is not an easy plan to follow, and with all the food floating around, it would be SO EASY to fall off program and go back to old habits. Pat yourself on the back and relish the wonderful feeling of knowing that YOU DID IT.

    Side Rant:

    It is very easy to be jealous of people who are losing weight when you are not. I know it, because I've been there - a few years back, a woman I knew lost a lot of weight and I was insanely jealous of her progress. I congratulated her, but inside I was crazy jealous and was like, "Why her and not me?!"

    (Me Now responding to Me Then: "Well, maybe if you bothered to monitor your food intake and exercise regularly, you WOULD have lost weight!!")

    Now that I've lost weight, I've met people who congratulate me, but I can tell inside they are jealous of my weight loss. I feel incredibly bad now for my previous feelings of jealousy.

    Fact is: I'm sure a lot of us would love to lose weight (those elusive last 10 pounds), but we need to learn to be happy for other people and not bring our negativity into THEIR success.

    (Sorry for rant...)
