This shouldn’t bother me.. but it does. What do I DO?
Long story short – 6 months leading up to the wedding I worked out like a PSYCHO – 6 days a week, ate as healthy as ever and went from weighing 119lbs down to 106 for the wedding. The more I worked out, the healthier and more I ate. I felt good, looked good and was pretty darn proud of myself.
About two weeks after the wedding I was hanging out with one of my BMs and was just telling her how for the last two weeks all i want to do is eat JUNK! because I ate like a healthy freak for what seemed like forever.
Her response “Well you should eat because you starved yourself for the wedding”. I politiely tried to tell her that no I did not starve myself, she saw me eating a lot, she saw me working out a lot so I wasn’t sure where she came up with this…
She then said “it’s just impossible to lose so much weight in such a short time, so don’t fool yourself because I know you starved yourself”.
That was that.. she left my house shortly after. I’m annoyed as SHIT about this. I haven’t really talked to her much since because I don’t even know what to say? First of all a whopping 10+ lbs isnt even “THAT MUCH WEIGHT” and 6 months isnt a “SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME” – she’s skinner than I am.. doesn’t work out.. eats crap and well just has a fast metabolism – so it’s not jealousy I dont think? but for some reason I’m seriously still upset about this – this is supposed to be on my best friends – so whats up her butt?

…some people just CANNOT stand to see other people succeed, so they diminish and downplay their victories because their self esteem and self image won’t allow anything else…it’s the earmark of a small and unhappy person..If she won’t congratulate you, I will!
You ROCK! That was amazing….you eat whatever you want because you earned it!

@Nona99: Thank you – after my 3 weeks of junk food I decided to go back to working out and eating healthy (I gained 4lbs lol) – except I’m not psychotic about it anymore 🙂 I’m sticking to 3-4 days a week and giving myself a cheat meal once a week. I deprived myself of the cheat meal for a while.

Try to ignore her. People with her body type and metabolism will never understand how hard some of us have to work. And even though she’s thin, chances are your body looks far better than hers as a result of eating clean and working out. Even if she’s not jealous of your body (and I think she is), she’s probably jealous of your dedication and willpower to get to where you did.

Just brush it off. I’m guilty of doing that to my skinny friends (bitches. I kid!). I don’t mean it – that’s me hating myself for not having the motivation to work out like a crazy psycho. Good for you, and don’t worry about what anyone else has to say about it.

You should be proud of yourself! You worked your 106lb butt off!
I’ll be happy if I can weigh 190lbs for my wedding, LOL!
Congrats for you! You worked hard and you have the pounds lost to prove it.
I hope you still feel good about yourself, you ate healthy, you worked out regularly, you had the determination, will and dedication it took to lose the weight you wanted for your wedding day. Kudos for you!
Don’t let her get to you, I know what she said sucks, but keep being proud of yourself! Sometimes the best revenge is ignoring what people say and being completely happy instead.

@Nona99: +1. Some people are just super negative. And whatever people say to you, reflects 100% of them (for better or worse). It’s her, not you. Let it go and eat whatever you want :o)

Thank you guys! and no she’s not single… she has a Boyfriend or Best Friend.. but that just make me think that she starves herself to be skinny. I would never be able to do that – I LOVE FOOD more than anything (except the Hubby and puppy come first) then comes the love for FOOD.
