Positive energy vampires
Thursday, April 28, 2011
So, this happened a few days ago but it has been playing more and more in my mind so I feel a need to vent.
I have been feeling good about my weight loss this past week. My body feels stronger. I feel lighter, even thought I haven't made it to my size 10 goals yet. This past week in particular I have really noticed changes in how I eat when I go out, I choose healthier meals just because I hate feeling heavy and bloated from greasy foods. I enjoy working out and leaving the gym with sweat dripping down my face and those crazy endorphins making you feel alive. It has become a new addiction:)
So I was telling my best friend this and she started talking about this co-worker who is on weight watchers and has lost "tons of weight". She also just started about 2 months ago. She has so much willpower and on and on and on and on. So, this made me feel like I am not working hard enough or fast enough. I know my weight loss is slow. I average a pound a week. I cannot cut out a single food group because I will fail. I cannot cut out a cheat day because I will fail.
All my positive feel good energy was sucked out of me. Every time I talk with her now this co-worker and her lightning fast weight loss is mentioned. This and my not meeting my 5 lbs weight loss goal this month have me feeling pretty low today. How hard is it to lose 5 measly pounds???
