I am having trouble dealing with idiots at work. I have approx 30kgs to lose. Contrary to what they may think, I do know this. I am trying. I don't however, feel the need to talk to them about it. I don't want them knowing I am dieting, because if I do fall off the wagon and have a biscuit, I don't want to deal with their filthy looks.
In my office we do a thing called '10,000 steps'. It's an online thing where it encourages people to try and do at least 10,000 steps a day. I can do that easily in my day as I am up and walking around a lot for my job. You think this would be enough for them? NO.
They are all older ladies who I work with, and 2 in particular are really into this steps thing. Both lead active lives, and like to brag how they get up at 5am to go for a walk before work. They come into the office, telling anyone who will listen about how they've already done 15,000 steps and its not even 10am. Good for you.
They then login to this site where they can see the amount of steps I have done. We are doing some sort of challenge thing, so everyone else can see everyone else's stats. I forgot to put mine in some days, some days I don't wear a pedometer and some days, like maybe a lazy sunday, I really dont do many steps. The amount of steps I have done then becomes office discussion, as to why I am not up to the same amount as them. They focus this on another overweight woman in my office too.
I defend myself, but they don't seem to get that it's embarrassing and painful for me when they do this. I am at least a foot taller then most of them as well, so my steps are twice and long as theirs, therefore I wouldn't take as much. Point is, I shouldn't have to justify myself to them and this little competetion thing that is happening with it. ARGHHHHHHHHH.
Another thing is, they watch what everyone else eats like hawks. It's a competition to see who's got the healthiest or least amount of food for lunch. And ifg they don't see what you have, they question you..."oh so you had the pasta from the cafe did you..they sure do put a lot of cheese on it don't they?'
Anyone got any advice as to how I can deal with these people? Anyone else in a similar situation? I am banging my head on a wall here!!
