Hi everyone!! Sorry for the lack of blogs lately! (I was sick with a stomach bug and happened to lose FIVE POUNDS... Hoping to at least maintain when I weigh in on Friday (if not lose) but trying not to get too obsessed with it.)
So, I am back to points and I have been eating some things that I would NOT be able to on Simply Filling. Earlier today, I posted my lunch which consisted of a chicken salad wrap and some baked Cheetos. (total of 9 points). A few hours later, I was notified by a follower that the IG account Prisondiet felt the need to mock my picture and talk about how unhealthy this meal was. Seeing this really pissed me off for several reasons:
a) I do NOT post my food for anyone's benefit but my own. (However, if people get ideas from my posts YAYYY but I do NOT post for anyone's approval)
b) IG has been a way for me to get support during this journey. It is NOT for people to tear me down.
c) People need to get a hobby if they dedicate their time to making fun of other people.
This whole ordeal really upset me because it was rude and disrespectful. However, the more and more I think about it, the better I feel about myself. If these people need to bring other people down, they have more issues than I do! I actually feel sorry that they need to make fun of other people instead of doing something constructive with their time.
The moral of this story for me: Do not let other people (especially ignorant and disrespectful people) bring me down. I use IG for motivation and support... Not for criticism and negativity. I REFUSE to let other people get in my way!
If the same thing happens to you, do what I am doing.. Brush it off, let it go and realize you are in this for you... NOT THEM!
