I absolutely loathe it when runners preach about running like it’s the only way to lose weight. As if anyone who doesn’t run or doesn’t prefer running gets less of a workout. Jump in a pool and try swimming for an hour and then see if you have the nerve to say I’m lazy.
I had to buy some clothes for some upcoming things and I’m currently too big in the middle for most regular sizes but I’m way too small for the plus sizes at all of the stores I went to today. One woman working at a store said, “yeah going from a size six to a size four was a big change. I know what you mean.”
Weight Loss Post
Basically, I’ve been at the same stupid plateau for a few months now. I am starting to get over it and heading back in the right direction. I am not giving up because I am so sick of this stupid disease trying to get in the way. I know it’s going to give me trouble, that’s what it’s been doing lately, but I deserve to be as healthy as I can be.
My parents own this $2,000 exercise bike
and I’m the only one who uses it. I’m only around a few times a year but I never seen anyone else on the bike. It used to be in demand by everyone the first year or so that they had it. Now it just sits, barely used and sad. I just managed to cover it in sweat and make it feel loved. If I could take it home with me and had a place to keep it, I would do so in a heartbeat.
I am feeling so fat and bloated. My weight has just been up and down and up and down with no explanation as to why. I’m on target with everything and I’ve been taking my meds. I tried changing things up and that made it worse. I tried sticking to a more normal routine and that didn’t change anything. My doctor basically told me I just have to wait. I’ve been in this position since March. Fuck waiting. I’m so pissed and I feel so physically ill and incapable of functioning.
I am starting to hate that other people in the family are losing weight.
Not because it’s not healthy, but because they really don’t get my struggle. I’ve hit a major plateau and my medication is messed up right now. I’m on the straight and narrow, eating right and keeping up with my exercise, even on painful days. Two days ago we went out to dinner with hubby’s family and everyone was talking about losing weight and how much weight everyone else had lost but me. Then my grandmother-in-law goes, “are you still trying to lose weight too or have you given up”. Why would you say something like that to anyone? Why?! It’s just been bothering me a lot. All everyone else has had to do is just watch what they eat and only a couple have added exercise. Meanwhile I am dealing with a barely there metabolism, have been very cold recently because of it and can’t even regulate my body temperature let alone lose weight. I’m not giving up, but this is taking more time than I would like it to. And yes, I’m impatient! I’ve been overweight for far too long now and was doing so well. I want to reach my goals like anyone else, I have to work harder than most people to reach them and I greatly resent the fact that people think I’ve given up just because I’m still at about the same weight that I was in March. You don’t want me to get started on their eating habits either. They talk about sweet potatoes like they are some new food and still eat Snicker’s salad like it’s an actual salad.
