I have been looking for this thread for almost the whole day. I saw this thread just after I have joined the forum and I knew I related but was not sure how successful the journey will be. Ohhh Im so happy I found it now that I know I am loosing and counting
I haven't lost nearly half as much as I want to loose eventually. My ultimate goal weight is 70kg and Im still at 96.6ish kg but I do relate a lot to the revenge weight loss. Don't get me wrong this weight loss journey I have decided to take is basically for me but not only me, its to also see the people that has been mean to me about my weight eat their words. Being overweight has stolen my self esteem from me, stolen my social life from me and it has overshaded my beauty more of the outer beauty than inner (lol). I have decided to claim that back and on top of that I want to be healthy and I want to be fit as a result Ill be happy and comfortable in me. Im already at ease Im no longer feeling under pressure to loose weight I am now enjoying the journey as I go.
One of my best friend who is also overweight and I personally think that she looks much bigger than me. The only difference is she has a pear-shaped figure and Im more like an apple. She once made fun of me at the party that we both been to. Im not sure why she did that. It could be because she was drawing attention away from her or just to make herself feel better because she really believed I was bigger than her. Even if that was true I did not expect such humiliation from her at all.
Anyway what she did was, while we were all sitting, drinking and nibbling on some steak in a sort of a cycle position with a whole lot of people,some I did not even know, she just started commenting (loudly) about my tummy. She said things like its so big it looks like I have an anaconda tied around my waist. Now everyone turned all their attention to me. All I said was "what about yours" I asked her to look at her tummy and than rethink what she has just said. That was the most embarassing moment for me. The whole conversation went on to an extent that she shouted that people must please come and judge whose tummy is bigger????
Anyway I tried loosing weight after that whole scene (for revenge) and I did loose some few KGs and the fell off the wagon I then gained more than before. I hope it does not happen this time around
Anyway this morning the very same friend came to see me at work. By the way the last time she saw me I weighed 105.8ish and today I weigh 96.8 if not less cos the last time I weighed was Monday. I was wearing my small cut sz 40 pants with a nice shirt and a coat; I was feeling really good; I must say I also have had few compliments for the day about my look and how Im doing great with my weight loss and she decided to come today
. The look on her face when I moved to her car was just PRICELESS... Im not surprised that she did not say 1 comment about the way I look for I have leant what kind of a person she is... She was looking as fat as ever by the way.
She is not the only one Id like to get back at with my smoking hot bod theres quite a few. All those that made comments like "do you think its possible" everytime I mention that I want to loose weight... and all those that has said It looks like I have always been big and will never loose weight will be eating their words pretty soon!!!
Pheeewwww!!! Thanks I feel great after I have told my story... I feel like I wont fail this time around. Whenever I seem to be slippering I will sure just come and visit this thread just to take me back on track!!!
Good luck to all, lets do this!
