I have been feeling good about myself lately, in terms of my weight management. I am able to control my food intake, do my regular cardio exercises, and most of all I can now wear clothes comfortably without having to worry much of the bulging tummy. I even had the guts to tuck my shirt and I haven’t done that in ages. Even hubby notices the change.
And just when everything seems to feel good, you hear an unsolicited comment comment from someone in the family telling me that I get fatter each time she sees me. What the …. ???? I have been working my ass out and that’s what I get. I did not even resort to pills, no matter how safe diet pills are.
I told hubby about it and he just laughed. Good thing I have quite a strong personality that I can handle these kinds of negativity but how about other people who easily get affected by these blunt comments?
People can sometimes be so inconsiderate. Blurting out words without regard for the rights or feelings of others. I guess the reason why Hubby laughed is that he is just as tactless as anyone can be. I often remind him not to start a “small talk” with anyone by saying something negative especially if its a female. My tips are not to talk about age, weight, and waistline when dealing with girls. It’s such a touchy subject.
In short, if you don’t have anything to say, just keep your mouth shut! Am I right?
Breathe in and breathe out …. I still feel good about myself and no one can take that away.
Oh well! This is me venting out… I am just human, ya know????
