Sometimes things that hurt us are the most motivating, like have your favorite nephew tell you that you won't fit on his swing set, then losing enough weight to do it. He is as excited as you are!

This is such a great quote, I thought I would bring it up again as that July Spark rally was over a month ago.

I saw an interesting quote recently that is good to keep in mind, especially when someone says something that hurts your feelings. emoticon

Everybody isn’t your friend.

Just because they hang around you and laugh with you doesn’t mean they’re there for you.

Just because they say they got your back, doesn’t mean they won’t stab you in it.

People pretend well.

Jealousy sometimes doesn’t live far.

So know your circle.

At the end of the day, real situations expose fake people, so pay attention.

Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart. — Unknown

I think their words help us to be more caring towards others. They hurt us but we can turn around and say something nice to someone else struggling to make it good! :o)
I'm not motivated by insults, I get depressed. I have finally decided to write those people off.
We deserve better! You are beautiful- you can do it! emoticon

I believe that people will get what is due to them. I just wish in some cases it would hurry up and bite them in the butt!!

I have a sister that has a smart reply for everything. When I started to lose weight I was 248 pounds. She said I would never lose the weight. I have lost 122 pounds. When I reached goal it was around Christmas time. I found out she made a bet with her hubby that I wouldn't keep it I would gain 25 pounds back by the following Christmas. I have maintained my weight loss for 2 years now. Shut her up. When I had a piece of pie for dessert this Christmas she said something, and when my sister in law brought out cookies and I had a couple she really started flapping her mouth. I just looked at her and said I can afford it but you better watch out. Getting a big tush there. emoticon

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie I live in CT ET

I went from 258 to 126 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

Words can hurt, and sometimes it's unintentional. But, some people try to make themselves feel better by putting others down. Don't take those words to heart. As you said, she doesn't know you, or your circumstances.

If she has talked to your real friends this way about you, they know what type of person she is, and although this doesn't hep you, she has probably talked about them the same way.

It's hard, but ignore what she says. How did you find out what she said about you? Did other "friends" come and tell you? That's not a kindness, either.

You will meet many people during your lifetime, you won't like all of them, and some of them won't like you. That's the way life goes. Stick with your true friends, and ignore the rest.

So just a couple of days ago. Someone I only have spoken to a couple times decided I was lazy and selfish. Unsure as to why that is the judgment I will move forward with...
You have had but two conversations with me but have deemed me lazy and selfish? I am confused. However, no explanation is needed from you I can see perfectly why you have made these assumptions. I can draw my own conclusions. ....
I have a choice now......
Discouragement and failure or emoticon
empowerment and inner peace. emoticon
I choose to use your negativity to fuel my positivity. Therefore turning the Lazy into the motivated and
selfish into the selfless and forgiving. Giving to myself will give to others and I will accomplish my goals with the fuel you provided. Thank you for extra motivation! Inner peace and positivity will keep me moving forward and not look behind. If you are behind me soon, then realize, those are the consiquenses of your negative choices and not me that put you there. I choose to be an equal with others not above or behind.. an equal. 
Remember we can make the choice to turn the negative into the positive motivation fuel we need to push a little harder in our goals. This is what I am choosing! emoticon
