No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I have a friend -she is a mom of on of my daughter's friends. This woman is amazing - so sweet, great mom, very giving....all around awesome. And as you know here comes the but....my big butt! Well let me step back and just say, it's so sad that when you have a food addiction issue it isn't as easily hidden as say a tendency to drink yourself to sleep each night or to pop a few of your kids' ADD pills to get through the day. So I digress this woman has seen me about 40 lbs thinner and now at my current (heavy) size. She does not have a weight problem and is disciplined and yes I admire that. The issue is - she likes to tell me what she is doing to accomplish her small figure, and worse she likes to tell me how "bad" she feels when she misses a daily walk or eats one too many cookies. I think it's not just that she shares this with me, I think it's the timing. She will tell me these things out of the blue like out of no where and I just feel like - well you can see my big butt and that I'm obviously struggling, please don't tell me about how sad you are that your pants are a "little" tight or that you're going to cut out desert and see if that gets rid of your thigh jiggle. Am I crazy? I think sometimes she is trying to start a conversation about weight so maybe I can have someone to talk to - I don't really know because like I said she is a super nice person. I do know that once I lose this weight (and I will) I hope I can be sensitive to those who are struggling and share only if I'm asked about my weight loss. I know she does not have ill intentions. I do see food as an addiction for me and I would never go up to an alcoholic and say "I had two sips of a margarita last night and it was just enough you know...it was refreshing but I am totally able to put it down and leave it alone, in fact it was the only alcoholic drink I've had this year". Not cool!! Anyway, just a thought and do you have any friends like this??
