I'm not sure whether I should be flattered or insulted! Yesterday I had to go to another department in the building that I work in. And while I was hanging out in a room waiting for what I needed, I overheard 2 people talking about my weight loss.
They should have known that I could hear them - I mean they saw me go in the room that was right there. But you know - some people are clueless.
At any rate it started out very complimentary. They were talking about how great I look and what a transformation I had made - etc. But then one of them made a comment about me being "lucky" because it was really easy for me.
Easy? In what universe?
The one continued on about how I go out and run at lunch and that I'm not even that sweaty when I get back, and it must be nice.
Um...hello? Do you think every day I wake up like Snow White and have Bluebirds fly around and place a sash on my body and sprinkle motivation dust?? I mean, come on! There is NOTHING easy about this journey.
There is an AWESOME pizza place about 1 block from where I work. Genuine greasy NY pizza. It's TO DIE for. Every single time I run I pass it. TWICE. You know the last time I had a piece of that mouth watering good pizza? 2010. That's right! Over 3 years ago.
I WISH that I could tell you that this journey is easy. I wish I could say that every single day I throw on my workout clothes and dash out the door in joy. And that when I get back and start eating my healthy lunch that I'm THRILLED and don't even think about that pizza place.
But that would be a lie. Most times I would love to spend my lunch hour with some friends and some greasy ass pizza. But I CHOOSE to live a different life today. Because overall I'm happier now. And I'm certainly healthier. That outweighs (no pun intended) the taste of really great pizza.
But easy for me? No way!
