After having done fabulously for a months, I hit a huge road block a couple of months ago when life circumstances caused me to lose the one person who encouraged me the most and got me excited about getting healthier. While I haven't gone up in weight, I hadn't lost a meaningful amount of weight since then, either.
Now, I think I might be refinding that motivation. I've been getting a lot of comments about with my fitness...ones that really aren't so nice. Like, having a guy tell me that he just wants to be friends while telling me he wants to date someone else because she's into fitness (despite him knowing that I regularly bike 15 miles round trip to work and that I regularly hike). Like, having my boss telling me I'm stronger than I look after I loaded a bunch of doors into a customer's truck. Even though they may not be outright mean comments, I'm just getting that people only see the fat...and don't want to believe that, despite the fat, I'm an active and fit person.
I'm tired of the unsaid things being implied in these comments...It's helping me get back on track. I am going to use this as ongoing motivation - I'm tired of others using my weight against me.
