I work in an Engineering firm. I am a female surrounded by males. :)
We are a close knit office and people genuinely care for one another. I do feel fortunate to work in an environment that is so inclusive.
This, can also be a double edged sword.
Everyone knows about my life changing journey trying to get this post-hysterectomy weight off. This gives people the feeling that they need to be “in my purchase” about what I am eating and how much of it I am eating and when I am eating. On one hand, this holds me very accountable to stick to what I am doing (which I have been doing a great job so far). On the other hand, it’s like…..
“BACK THE FUCK OFF”.
I do love them and appreciate their support but give me some credit. I am aware of what I am doing. I am on a legitimate program. I am an intelligent person. I can work this stuff out. Don’t compare myself to your six-pack self, we are on different paths.
On a much happier note, I tried on my engagement ring yesterday. I have not been able to wear it since my weight gain and IT FIT! Exciting moment!!!
I have weigh ins on Sunday’s….I’m finding it hard not to weigh myself daily. Do other people have this problem?
This inspirational quote comes from Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels. Let this be a lesson to us all…just keep going. It will be worth it.
