total vent session....
Thursday, May 07, 2009
So, I'm doing pretty good on this journey, considering my thyroid
issue is stalling my metabolism. I have lost 2.8 pounds in 3 weeks, which is better than gaining it or nothing at all.
However, I am still getting frustrated. My sister in law has lost weight, and I'm happy for her. But, it seems that she is throwing it in my face. First off, I work my dang butt off to lose weight. I watch every bite that enters my mouth. I work out every single day. I drink a whole gallon of water a day and I cook very healthy. She, on the other hand, never exercises, drinks nothing but regular Pepsi-about 10 cans a day-and eats very unhealthy. I don't understand it. I know that may sound awful of me, but I have to vent it out somehow or I'm going to explode. The real thing that pissed me off the other day was that her daughter, who is 26, has gained a lot of weight and give me and her mom (my sister in law) some of her old summer clothes that she can't wear anymore. So, my sister in law sent me two pair of capris out of everything....they were size 16's. Her comment was, "I figured these would fit you b/c they fall off of me." Now, first of all, it wouldn't have bothered me if that were my size, but I'm down to a size 12....and she very well knows that. I just felt like that was some type of insult. I wadded them up and threw them in the bottom of the closet. Shew, it makes me furious. Why does she act like that? I don't act like that. When I lose weight, I
don't say anything about it to her. Maybe I'm overreacting, but it just makes me so mad I can't stand it.
To top that off, she now expects me to babysit her daughter's 20 month old all summer while I'm off on summer break.....5-6 days a week w/out getting paid for it so her daughter won't have to pay childcare. I don't know if I can deal with all
of this or not....and they live right next to us.
Okay, so I've vented enough....sorry for those of you reading if it seems like a total gripe session but I don't really have anyone else to say it to.
