Motivation

Rate this Entry
Sometimes people say mean and insensitive things to us not realizing that they're actually motivating us instead of putting us down.
I've been called many things in my life, but by far the worse thing I've been called is FAT. It's like playground bullying. The bully spies something in you that he think he can pick and he goes to town with it. This happened to me yesterday.
Here's the thing though, I don't think I'm fat. Admittedly I have some areas that could use improvement, but over all I don't think I'm fat. I had a fall out with a person that i considered to be close to me and when was all out of things to say to me she called me the F word. My first thought was "I think that she thinks that I think I'm fat!" or why else would she say it? Because I'm NOT fat. Even as compared to her, we are pretty close in size except that she's shorter.
She just happens to know that I love to work out (zumba, spin, step, running etc) and that I am very aware of my diet and what I eat. What she doesn't know is that I don't workout because I think I'm fat or because I hate the body I have. I LOVE the body I have and that's exactly why I work out. I do it to take care of my body and my health. It's such a common misconception that people who work out want to loose weight.
NO!! Some of us just want to be fit and healthy!

I didn't argue with her about it because she's obviously of a much smaller mind, but I do that I'll never speak to her again. I have no room in my life for people who try to be little my efforts or for people who take advantage of my generosity.
P.S. I've decided that i'M NOT! going to take a break. Instead I'm going to solider on thru the protocol while my parents come to visit. I can do this.

    Good for you, u can do this,. I had a 9year old little girl call me fat twice!! I was so angry inside but just laughed it off. I'm a hair dresser and I was doing my friends daughters hair, I teased her cause she said she looks like a boy with her hair short so I said your name isnt gwen now its glen and she replied with "adleast I'm not the fattest person here" which I'm not that fat, I carry my weight well I'm 173.7 now. Then she says it again your f** i was so mad. Her mom looked shocked and said gwen don't say that, your rude. I was thinking ok I'm gonna give your brat a bald spot lol. Oh well she's a kid. That word is mean, I'm into fitness too. I use to b in amazing shape, long distance runner and body building was my thing. I'm so ready to get my pre baby body back. Anyways thought is share that story with you have a great day

    Well I didn't find any full body pics of you under your profile but judging by your avatar I wouldn't call you fat either.

    I've actually been surprised at some of the women I've seen on here that are on the diet when it is my personal opinion that they shouldn't be. Although I never mention that to them as it is their own choice as to how they want to look.

    Lol I would have been tempted to give her a bald spot too. The F word is such an ugly word that even a person with the perfect confidence could be shaken by it.

    My first round helped me get to my pre baby weight and I love the way that I felt at that weight, which was 150 lbs. I gained some of those pounds back because I made a big mistake at my first attempt at a round two. I'm back to get down to 150 not only because I want to look thinner, but because I want to FEEL good and to get as close to a normal BMI range as possible. Working out and eating right just wasn't working and I KNOW hcg works.

    I think you look GREAT!! You're so right, you do carry your weight well.
    I have a friend who is extremely opposed to hcg and she always tries to tell me that I looked better when I was thicker and I had curves, but I tell her that to me it's not just as appearance. Even with curves I felt sluggish and fatigued all the time. I would trade my curves over and over if it means feeling alive and healthy. =)

    Do you have any pics of yourself that you could upload? You can create private albums and what not if you don't want everybody to be able to see them.
