So, everything was going great– I’m eating right, hitting the gym consistently, and the scale is moving in the right direction. It’s bloaty-PMS week, so I feel horrible but I know I’m taking the right steps, etc etc etc.
And then tonight, as I was leaving the gym, some random street person flipped me off and called me fat.
Really? I thought I left all this bullying BS behind in high school. Apparently not. Came home, bawled my eyes out, and now I’m trying not to eat everything in the house (oh, stress eating, how I’ve missed you).
Bees…how in hades do you stay motivated when it feels like the world just wants to take a crap on you?
I really, really want a cheeseburger. 🙁

@Sugar_and_Spice: Do you have a once a week cheat meal? Mine was fridays and it was the only thing that got me through it.
Seriously EF that person.
PMS sucks, I always gain like 3 lbs. The good news is that your burning an extra 500 calories a day! Usally when PMS is over I loose 5 lbs or so…So get your self some skinny cow chocolate bars and run the anger off.
I really REALLY like kickboxing when I’m pissed 🙂

What a DOUCHE. First of all, good for you for eating right and hitting the gym! I am doing the same and my motivation comes from like @harperlynn: said, one cheat meal a week, which I envision over and over again in my head. Two is watching wedding videos, seeing girls in their dresses and thinking of me in that dress gives me an extra push, and third, thinking about how amazing I feel as opposed to pre working out and eating right regardless of what the scale says. Also, going to Fiance for some motivating “you always look sexy to me no matter what” talk helps too ;). I TOTALLY understand how you feel, cheeseburgers are unfortunately the BEST for stress.. But you are doing awesome, keep it up, you will thank yourself in the end! Good for you for taking initiative, and honestly I feel worse for that person for having to live with their awful, rude self for the rest of their life.

@Sugar_and_Spice: I bet the person who said that to u was fat and miserable themselves. People like that always are so the try bring others down. Sounds like your doing amazing and every time u do any exercise or say no to that piece of food is a step ahead of others!!! Good on ya. I chew gum to stop snacking and brush my teeth after tea so I don’t crave sweets etc. Works!! And drink lots of water cos people often mistake thirst for hunger. 🙂

@Sugar_and_Spice: First, ignore that douche. They can’t help it when dumb things come spewing out of their mouths. It’s a disease, I swear.
Next, you are doing WONDERFUL!! Getting up, going to the gym and eating right is NOT very common; hence, all of the diet-related diseases that are prevalent in today’s world. I know the bee has some pretty fit women; but overall, not the case! YOU know what you are doing is for your health…YOU know that you feel good about yourself….YOU know the scale is going down…so screw that person who OBVIOUSLY saw you coming from the gym and said the most hurtful comment that came to mind. PMS is no joke, either. Don’t indulge too far into your sorrows. You don’t want all that hard work to disappear….do feel free to have a little though (I’m horrible) 😉
Keep your head up and keep going!

@Sugar_and_Spice: Get your cheesburger. It so hard to live depriving yourself. I have always been called fat from my sibilings. I know it was not nice, but I didn’t let that bother me. I will admit it, I am not skinny and I am even a little overweight. I am not all that happy by being overweight but I keep myself motivated to go out and continue to excercise.
