"One of these things is not like the other, one of these things does not belong..."

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Do you remember this song? I think it was from Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers? Well , this is what I'm dealing with at work. ALL the people I work with are literally 10-20 years younger than me and a 100+ pounds smaller than me. I stick out like a sore thumb. The only other two women who were similar in age and size to me were let go within the last few months....definitely felt like there was a target on my back too! No, that's not why they were let go; but, with them gone my comfort level has disintegrated. They eat out nearly everyday. I want to be a part of the group while at work, but know that I can't eat like they do and am very self-conscious when out with them.

I guess this is a part of the learning process....learning to eat healthy while eating out...learning to accept myself where I'm at...learning not to compare myself..and learning not to get discouraged. I know I can't give up on myself, that I have to keep moving forward!
