I’m going to start posting more personal stuff on this blog. And I figured I’d start with something that’s been irking me for a while.
People who complain about their weight/looks but do little to nothing to change it. Now, I have know a good number of people who are guilty of this and it never ceases to irritate me. How can you complain about something you aren’t working to change? Why do I have to hear about how much you hate yourself then see you fill yourself with garbage food? Why should I pity you?
Another thing that bothers me is when these same people turn around and insult my healthy habits. For example, when suggesting to someone of my interest to become a vegetarian, they laughed and said that was “so stupid.” They went on to say the usual ignorant things such as “where will you get your protein?” and “how can you live without hamburgers?” I want to be fit and healthy so I’m making positive changes to my fitness and diet routine. They, on the other hand, spend their time wallowing in self-pity and whining about their weight while doing absolutely nothing about it.
“The food is nasty.”
“I try for a couple weeks and get no progress!”
To be completely honest, these excuses are pathetic and they anger me. I was born to parents whose idea of a full course meal was a big mac and a twix bar. I lived off of fast food my entire childhood and into my teens. I felt sick constantly. To this very day, I still have health issues that could possibly stem from all that unhealthy food. I’ve suffered from emetophobia, agoraphobia, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, vertigo, and asthma and you know what?
I still get off my ass every day and work to get my body healthy. And I’ve seen results. My body is as fit as it’s ever been. For once in my life, I’ve had minimal stomach issues, and when I work out, I feel great. I feel proud of myself.
I just don’t understand why or how some people can abuse themselves so much and then turn around and whine about it to everyone at every chance they get.
Sorry for ranting, but this has been on my mind for a while. I feel a bit better to have vented a bit.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this.
