What A Mess

This weekend was a disaster.  I ate so bad!  I just weighed myself and it's like 4lbs higher than it was 3 weeks ago.  FAIL.  I know those 4lbs are not from this weekend but still!  This is terrible! I went out to dinner both Saturday and Sunday night and ate terribly. And I know why!

There is always that one person.  That one person you hang out with that makes you make PLDs (poor life decisions).  You always try to be strong and tell yourself that you will say no...but you always end up saying yes.  I get so mad at myself!  It's like all my goals and motivation go out the window and I just eat bad.

The problem is that this particular friend is also a big girl.  Almost exactly the same size as me in fact.  I feel like there is competition between us.  She wants to be smaller than me and I obviously want to be smaller than her. So when we are together we like sabotage each other  Hahaha we are so dumb.  And we know it...what kind of friends do that?! SO dumb.




I know I can't be the only one that has this problem.  Help meeeee!  The only solution I can think of is to stay away from this friend!  What else can I do?  This weekend I will be going out for her birthday and things will get messy.  After this last hoorah...i'm stepping away. I have to! I need to get back on track!

This week I am going to stay on plan and hit the gym and eat right!  I can do this!!!! Sooooo why don't I just do it?! So frustrating!

  1. Hmm... this is an age old problem actually. You are not alone. I think women by nature of competitive beings. We all want to be the prettiest/skinniest one of our social circle. I don't really know why that is. You really only have a couple options. One is to step away as you say because apparently you cave to the temptation or else the other thing is to try with all your might to be the one who says NO and shows her that you are in control by making the better decision.

    You clearly want this, you clearly exercise and try and are committed and yet with this person apparently she is your kryptonite. It might be smart to only spend time with her in "controlled" environments. Don't plan food related activities with her.

    Is she trying at all to lose weight? or is she comfortable with where she's at? sometimes we have to truly put ourselves first. It's not always easy but I have on occasion turned down social events because I knew I would not be strong enough to make the right choices...

    Hugs to you, you are still trying and that is the important part. Get back up. Get back on track and move forward.

    1. Thank you so much Emily! You have some great advice! I think what I'm going to try doing is stepping away. For right now that will probably be the easiest way.

      You're awesome!!! <3

  3. I'd say stepping away from your friendship with this girl could become a problem. Obviously it depends on how close you are with her...but at the same time this is the prefect opportunity to start forcing yourself not to give into temptation.

    If it isn't your friendship with this girl it could be a different friend, or a future boyfriend, family...even yourself. Rather than turning away from temptation teach yourself to say "no" at whatever temptation. Otherwise you might just be teaching yourself to run from temptation opposed to facing it and conquering it.

    Plus this is a great situation to let your inner bitch run free (we all have her in there somewhere) if she wants to try and sabatage you and you don't fall for it...BAM beyotch! Haha. Its like taking a pshycological warfare approach to this competition. Haha. Show her that she isn't going to make you screw up... hell, you might end up motivating her to lose weight (if she really wants that) by not giving into temptation.

    Hugs!!!!!

    1. Awesome advice lady! I should totally just turn on the bitch mode and stand up for my goals. If I just run away from the problem, it will never go away. I am going to try this! THANK YOU! xoxoxox
