I’m so tired of people telling me they are concerned about me.  Yes, I’ve dropped a few sizes or am “disappearing” as you like to say.  That’s what typically happens when you lose weight.

No, I do not have an eating disorder or emotional issues I need to discuss that are leading to my weight loss.  I am eating extremely healthy.  I am working my ass off at the gym but still give my body time to rest when it needs to.

I don’t care if you don’t understand.  I am not just akin and bones… Not even close.  So stop pulling me aside at work and telling me I’m unhealthy and I have to stop this.

I understand you thought I looked “perfect” before and didn’t have to lose weight.  That’s great for you, but for the first time in a very long time I feel great about myself and I went about achieving that feeling in a healthy way.  Yes my decision to compete helped me expedite the process… So what?!

I’m happy with my body image.  I’m healthy.  I do not have an eating disorder and I’m not sick.  So back off.

Rant over… I feel better 🙂

  1. You can look at this in 2 ways. The people you work with take notice of you and care about you. That’s why they said something to you. That’s a good thing. But if they are continuously on your case about your changing physique then they just don’t understand what you are trying to achieve.

    I am of the mindset that as long as you can state what you did in your last paragraph, “I’m happy with my body image. I’m healthy.” then you shouldn’t worry what others think or say.

    Head up! Chest up! Be proud of what you have accomplished!


  2. I like what Big Mike’s World said… as long as you can say your are healthy and happy don’t worry about what others think. I have had this happen A TON in the past year or so and it just makes me laugh because they just don’t get it. Be proud of what you have accomplished and always strive to remain healthy! 🙂
