Can You Believe This....Garbage????

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

First let me say that I almost never say anything bad about anyone else. I believe in the walk a mile in someone's shoes kind of thing. But tonight - I am just...ummm...let's go with ticked!!
My boss told me this morning that our insurance agent was coming to take her to lunch today...and she wanted me to go along. I rarely go on these things - preferring to eat what I have already brought for lunch. But I really like this our insurance lady...she's just fun to be around. So I agreed. My boss (who is a female 10 years older than me) asked me where we should go and I told her I didn't have a preference, but I did tell her the ONE restaurant that would be the Worst for me as far as staying on target. So what did she do?????? Yep - She chose the ONE restaurant that I said would be bad for me!!!!!
I have known for a long time that she was jealous of my weight loss....but she made it clear today.....Now I ask you....how crappy is that????? I couldn't even back out cuz she didn't decide until the woman was there ready to walk out the door with us. AAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
So - I did the big girl thing.....I order SWORDFISH!! It came with green beans w/ tomatoes....and smashed red potatoes....but I only ate a little of the potatoes.
Why do some people have to be so shallow and hateful?
Well - it's over...and I won't be dumb enough to get caught there again...And now that I have vented, I am going to get the heck over it...but GEEZ!!!

    Well I would say, don't let nasty people like that get to you. Atleast you showed her that even though it was a place that challenged your diet that you could still keep to your diet. Shows her your strengths and her weaknesses.

    I'd like to kick her in the A**...what a b****! She's just plain jealous and wanted to punish you and show you who the boss is...is this the same boss who brings you Arctic Turtles EVERY Friday? Good for you for ordering healthy and showing her that it doesn't matter where you go, you KNOW what is right and will do it! You go, girl!

    "living well is the best revenge" comes to mind here. Revenge isn't really in my personality but since the quote came to mind I thought I'd post it. But, really, you took the high road on this and didn't let her derail you with emotionally charged food choices.

    You did a great job!

    I can relate. You did good.

    Remember this: when given the option of choosing a restauant, make the choice! I've learned this the hard way. lol

    OMG! Do we have the same boss? lol. My boss and I are in a weight loss contest together and she actually smiles and takes pleasure in my down weeks or when things bum me out yet she is the first one to brag about everything she does and eats like she is the GOD of all that is weight loss. I blog about it all the time (in fact just did one on Tuesday). So I feel your pain. You'll show her when your looking even better then she ever could and your struting around the office. :)

    Wow. I can only imagine how annoyed she must have been when you managed to find something healthy at even the worst choice of restaurants. Guess you showed her up close and personal just what it takes to build a healthier you.

    Well done!

    Oh how I can feel your pain. I passed up some cake yesterday and out of the mouth of one of my coworkers was " are you wanting to become anorexic?"...I didn't know cake could make me that if I didn't eat it. But I just smiled said i'm back on track and that is where I want to be and let it go. Out of the mouths of overweight coworkers who haven't seen the light. We are strong and we will succeed. You proved that to yourself.

    Some people are sooooo kind. BUT..you handled yourself well and showed her that even when faced with difficulties you are determined to stick to your healthy choices, so way to go!! Sad how some folks choose to spend their lives being petty and jealous, instead of wishing others well and being inspired!!

    Good for YOU! I hope you didn't have to pay for it, either! That was pretty blatantly inconsiderate! Who knows what goes on in people's minds! Maybe she thought you secretly craved the place and she'd placate the little devil inside of you? Ah, well, you handled it beautifully! emoticon

    There are saboteurs everywhere...especially in the workplace. You faced it beautifully, and with such symbolic flair ( En Garde!sword swishing...well, sword fish). Well done, you!

    You did a great job and best of all, you didnt let her see you sweat! and you ate a good meal, not just nibbled a salad. Cannie is right!

    I totally agree with Cannie! Be flattered!! There are people out there who wish that they could take control of weight and nutrition and wont be happy for you when you do, but who cares who always have all of us to support you!!! :) You look amazing and its so awesome that even at your most challenging restaurant you were able to order happiness :)

    (I call good daily choices , no matter how big or small... happiness) emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Way to put on the big girl panties and show her no matter how jealous she is she can't ruin your great success!

    wow, subtle, isn't she? I would be very flattered - clearly your success has gotten to her but she has not yet chosen to be inspired by you, she is still in the threatened stage. At least she gave you useful information - that you cannot count on her as a supporter (yet). You handled it very well so her plan backfired a bit. emoticon
