don't ask

I worked out this week 4 days despite these wretched allergies. I have a bum knee that can't take too much jogging and that makes it harder to get a good workout. I have to be a little creative. Beth and I are trying out a few P90X workouts that we borrowed from a friend this weekend. We'll see how that goes.

It was weigh in day again. I lost .4 lbs. Its a little bit in the right direction. I wish it was more, but it is what it is. I'm not sure what the WW lady was smoking when she told me I was 1 lb away from my 10% goal because I wasn't. I just took her word and didn't do the math until today. It felt pretty defeating when I realized I really had another 1.5 lbs to go to that goal.

But do you know what was even more defeating? When I got asked if I was pregnant today for the second time in one week. I'm not kidding. I did what anyone would do and cried in my car and called my best friends.

People, in case you did not get the memo: Do not ever ask a woman if they are pregnant. Not unless she is wearing a shirt that says "Yes, I'm pregnant" or she is in a hospital bed screaming with a person coming out of her. Especially if said woman may have recently lost 12 pounds and has been ingesting a large amount of salad and vegetables and fiber bars.

You do not want to be there if another person asks me this question. I am losing my patience and I will most likely say what I really think to them. Which may or may not be "No, I'm not. Are you carrying two watermelons in the back of your pants? Oh, sorry thats just your butt."

OH my!!! I really don't know what they're talking about! You look great! What does the 10% goal mean? I'm confused! You can't have that much more to lose.

Oh Erin, hang in there. You look wonderful--people are just idiots, that's all.

Linda, I just figure out which Linda you were! I was wondering who the Linda who always leaves encouraging comments was.

Katie, the 10% goal means you have lost 10% of your starting weight. After I meet that goal I will have 6 lbs more to lose.

Thanks for the sweet comments ladies!

Hey- you crack me up. I would love to hear you make the watermelon comment :). Marlie pics are ADORABLE. She is precious and I love the umbrella and yellow shoes. We miss you guys!

I was standing next to you for one of those comments and if it had been ANY other person at the party I would have scolded them. I'll repeat what I said before. You do look amazing. In fact I covet your weight loss and wish I was losing as fast as you are. Guess I'd have to be as dedicated as you are and well...

See you tonight!

It's amazing how rude people can be! Just ignore those jerks and keep up the good work! The pictures of Marlie with all the yellow are so sweet.
