LHAS Challenge Week 6 Check In

What a terrible week y'all. Just when I think my life is headed on a straight path, there is a detour. On 2 separate occasions, in less than one week, comments were made about my weight. Granted, they aren't coming from the best of people...but it still hurt nonetheless. You know what follows right? Instead of being mad and working my butt off to show these people, I emotional ate, and ate, and ate. I deserved the gain I received...and I'm mad at myself or letting these pathetic miserable people win...

156.6 +2.2lbs. I also was miserable enough I didn't workout one day. How about them apples?!!!

What have I learned from this experience? Well...what they say or think of me really doesn't matter. Yes, it hurts to hear someone say things about you. Especially when you've worked really hard to make changes. Alright even harder that you have poor self image and then this ADDS to it big time. But you know what...I realize these people are miserable and truthfully just want me to feel miserable too. It worked...for a little bit. But I'm over it. It has to be ME that is happy with myself and my body. And if I'm eating poorly, not working out, I know I will feel miserable...not only that but I will start to look that way too.

So, yeah, today is a new day...another new one. I have a good attitude and I'm giving it my full effort this week. I want to be pleasantly surprised how good it feels...because I know I will feel better if I'm actively TRYING.

You weigh 156lbs and someone has the nerve to comment on your weight!!!! I wish I was there when it happened - man people need to get a life and put their noses elsewhere. I sure hope they aren't friends of yours and if they are, it's time to move on.... :) OK, I'll get off my protective box now....

2.2lb gain isn't that bad considering!
Let it go and make this week a better one...

I had issues like that recently - just remember, they don't see your everyday struggles, and most people don't know how far you've come. They don't see what it takes to resist food, to make yourself workout. In short....they aren't YOU. YOU are doing an awesome job, simply by realizing what you need to change. Keep it up, you'll see the results!

((hugs)) I hope it's a better week! And you are so right! They are miserable, don't be sucked down with them. A good work out always cheers me up. You have done so much Mandie and you deserve to be happy, don't let anyone get in your way!!! ♥

HI Mandi!
Just found your blog. Wow, you've done so great losing weight.
You know... I've decided that MEAN PEOPLE SUCK! You're right, people who don't feel good about themselves look for ways to bring others down too (bad Karma).
I like your determination to get over hurtful comments and not let it get you down or change your self-image. You sound like a strong person!
My hubby and I are also on a weight loss quest, and I tell ya, it's not for wimps!
I will check back often. Have a fabulous day!!

Seriously? Why do people have to suck sometimes...

There is a special place in hell...I'm hoping that they are making room.
