There's Always One...

I am in a little bit of a bitter mood right now and I feel the need to vent.

No matter how hard you try to avoid them, there is always one person in your "inner circle" who will try to bring you down. They may not know they are doing it (then again...they just might) but their words can wipe a smile off your face and replace it with an "I can't believe you just said that out loud" glare.

I have to say that going through the weight loss process can be just as exciting for your friends and family as it is to you but there are people in our lives who cannot seem to see past their own nose and be happy for you. For example, if I share my excitement for losing nearly 60 pounds in four months do not tell me that when I lose the next 50 I will be much happier. I know I have more weight to lose but I am enjoying my progress and I celebrate every pound lost.

Everyone has this one person in his or her circle but the people in our lives (either in or out of the circle) who think that weight loss surgery is the easy way out are the worst. They have no idea how much work is involved in having a successful outcome. Sure, I could sit back and let my sleeved stomach do all the work but I have chosen to discipline myself and follow a strict plan for lifelong success (thus the reason for my previous post about finding balance).

Stop telling me when I will be happy because I am happy now.
