I was at my gym yesterday when a guy came up to me (Obviously watching my every move as I worked out) asking me if I’ve tried all these different workouts. While looking me up and down the, trying not to make it so obvious that he was staring at my stomach the entire time…
This pissed me off so much. He could tell I wasn’t really feeling the convo. I understand maybe He just wanted “to help” But he pays attention to everyone but himself and has the total “I’m training for American Ninja Warrior, so everything I do in the gym is right and you need to do what I’m saying” type of personality and grunts extra loud while lifting. I briefed him on my “fast” weightloss and explained that my stomach is going absolutely nowhere without skin removal surgery. he just gave me a disapproving look like “well you haven’t done enough.” So I just walked away but it was on my mind the rest of my workout, the rest of my day really.
The fact that so many people try to tell me what I need to be doing to lose it kills me, because I do everything they’re saying DAILY without them even telling me. Thank you but NO FUCKING THANK YOU!!
I have done absolutely every ab,lower ab workout and tons of running, yet my stomach pooch is still so dramatically noticeable. My skin was so Stretched For years, that it’s to the point where my extra skin in my lower stomach will never stretch back to size. It’s often the first thing people look at when approaching/ speaking to me and I often get rude/ offensive about it. I’ve tried harder than anyone on this planet possibly knows, yet it’s still not enough.
Though I am beyond proud of myself and all I have accomplished during my journey, It has not been a “walk in the park.” Obviously!
Now that I have reached my Original weight loss goal, I am on to my next goal of loosing 20-30 more pounds. I thought it would be somewhat easy since I lost so much this past year right? WRONG! Very wrong. I have been fluctuating between 195-210lbs for the past 8/9 months which has been beyond frustrating. while sticking to my healthy diet, pushing through my hardest workouts and making sure I switch up my routine every few weeks it just seems as if my body is getting to the point where it feels content with my size/weight and as I continue push, it’s trying to push me right back.
This has been and continues to be the hardest part of my Journey. 😞
