but words will never....uh, yeah sometimes they hurt

Monday, July 17, 2017

I am feeling pretty good today. Despite that yesterday someone, who i considered a friend, made a stupid comment that really made me feel bad about myself.
I dont know if it was just a spur of the minute, inconsiderate, without thought comment. Or, if she really said it because it was on her mind.
Either way it made me feel bad.
I am happy for everyone who is successful in this journey.
I have seen people lose great amounts of weight and keep it off. I have seen others gain it all or most of it back.
I have seen others lose and get stuck.
Which is my own story.
I have not had much weight loss success in about 4 years.
I have kept off the weight I lost in 2012/13
But right now, I do struggle, every single day.
But even though I might think someone shouldnt eat that, or should exercise more, or should would will wont....whatever my feelings about someone elses journey, or fight. It isnt my place to voice it in such a way to bring about pain.
I am not going to let her words bring me down tho.
I got up this morniing and went to the track and walked and I feel good about that and I feel good about my choices.
I am afterall, the only one who knows how I FEEL.
We all need a kick in the pants sometimes, a reminder someone rooting for us, or encouraging us and yes at times, even pushing us harder.
But we dont need judgement.
No one deserves that.
I move on.
Have a nice week. It is going to be extremely hot in eastern Ky, so I am going to get my workouts done early and try to find air conditioning the rest of the day.

    You are so right about encouragement vs judgement! I've been working on telling others when my feelings are hurt by them. It's been helping me tremendously in my relationship with my husband. I tend to dwell on hurtful happenings until I confront which helps me to keep moving forward!
