So Insulting

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Hind sight, an amazing thing. When I was 303 lbs I stopped weighing didn't want to know. I broke my foot n had to use crouches NOT EASY BEING BIG. So I decided to lose some weight. My hubby was talking about I didn't need to lose N that he like the way I looked etc etc. Then he was like if it will make u happy do it. I lost the weight gained half back.

It's a couple years later, I m tired of hearing the Dr's tell me I wont be in so much pain if I lost some weight then I got pneumonia, start having to use a nebulizer. Dr's tell me more wont need it so much if I lose some weight .

I decide it's time to do this, hubby was really against it, but I started any way. Now he is my biggest support (he is enjoying the results). Well Sat @ my dil baby shower i was truly shocked. When of the young ladies from the church. Who I've watched grow up. Asked me if I was leaving my hubby, shocked I asked WHY. She told CAUSE GIRL YOUR LOOKING REALLY GOOD YOU CAN REALLY SEE THE WEIGHT YOU LOST. I informed her NO just trying to get healthier 2 b able to have a better life with my hubby. She apologized but I was upset. Then later on another person jokingly says HE BETTER BE TREATING HER RIGHT CAUSE IF HE DON'T WATCH IT SOMEONE GONNA COME ALONG N SNATCH HER AWAY. I'm still upset

Hubby & I discussed it & he also is upset then he informed me that it was a concern of his.
We looked at only other 3 people that we know that ever lost weight, although not related to their weight lost or so I believe I began to c y ppl r asking if my marriage is okay. 3 ppl lost weight 1st cheated 2nd cheated n left hers 3rd separated WOW
Opened my eyes, glad hubby n I discussed it hey if I didn't leave him during the legal problems n all those hardships I ain't going no place now. I know that he realized this before the discussion cause he now reminds me to do my workouts. He even walks with me to help motivate me.

I was feeling so good about ppl seeing my progress n realizing how serious I m about this. But a few 'jokingly' said comments were just sooo insulting. It will not deter me I WILL FINISH WHAT I STARTED. I will get healthier & loss this weight.

    Wow!!! People never cease to amaze me - the nerve of them asking of you were leaving your hubby. I know that sometimes those in our life sabotage us bc they are subconsciously afraid we might leave them once we become happier, healthier people. I think it is awesome and I applaud you and your husband for having the maturity and courage to talk about these things with each other. Kudos to him for supporting you in your journey to become a healthier you and kudos to you for being so open about your journey. Thanks for the blog - I'm sure there are many out there who will benefit from your example. Communication is SO important.

    I feel that anybody that truly knows you would not think you would leave your husband, That is ridiculous isn't it!

    By the way Maga, You look great in those pics. Way to go! Proud of you!
    I am glad people noticed your nice loss though!

    I have no means to relate to that. WEIRD is all I can say. I dont get bent anymore about other people's presumptions. Most of the time I have no clue what they mean, then when someobody explains it or I question...and I understand, I just count it up to their ignorance, stupidity, ass-uming...LOL
    If you and your hubby both love each other, and take the journey to become more healthy and fit together or with support to one another, then screw everybody else or what they think. They are NOTICING a difference so that is progress, take the good for what its worth, and let go of the rest. dont let others upset you, dont give away your power, you are the only one who decides whats best for you, what you think, what you say, and how you feel!!! swmawk
