I hit 30 lbs lost this weekend. WOO HOO! Go me. I has been a very slow process and I hardly lost weight in July because I could not seem to stay on plan. I am halfway to my personal goal weight and so looking forward to the little black dress I'm gonna buy and party I am going to throw when I get there.
(The above is my pat on the back)
This is my vent. Why, when I either choose to share my success or when people ask about it, they pay me a back handed complement. I constantly hear, I wish I had your will power, I just can't lose weight, what is your secret, blah, blah, blah. I want to look at them and say, there is NO magic pill, it is really, really HARD WORK and it has taken me a LONG time to number one find my own determination to work on ME and continue to do it.
Can you tell I am PMSing? Why can't they just say "Great Job, I am so proud of you?"
I would not be where I am without this forum. The support and advice I find and receive here has helped me so much that I cannot express it in words.
Thank you all for being here and letting me vent.
