I have this friend that I talk to every so often online on AIM. Not much but sometimes. She irritated me tonite. She found me tonite and wanted to just catch up and chat since it was close to Xmas and yada yada. She is one of those that always asks questions but when you start to reply, she bleeps in and goes...oh yeah...and its all about her again...ya know those folks? yeah...hate it but you just go along. Well we were talking about weight issues and how I am just so frustrated. I think somewhere in there we started with talking about psychiatric medications and medications in general and how so many of them cause weight gain...and she was around all those years ago when I did lose some weight but I didnt keep it off and I was saying how I had this friend from this board who was going to give me this new eating plan she was on because she had dropped a whole lot of weight with the new plan. Well...she started to tell me how she had dropped a bunch of weight not long after I had lost my weight by not eating dinner every night for a year. She ate whatever she wanted for breakfast and lunch but she just didnt eat dinner. I commented that I didnt think that would be very healthy to do long term and asked if she kept the weight off. Well...no she said, she didnt. I said...hmm..I didnt think it would be a thing you could stick to long term. I said this plan my board friend is going to send me is a complete lifestyle change. I said I didnt know if I could do it but the one thing that did make sense to me was that she had given up all sugar and that was what I did when I lost all that weight before. I only started gaining back the weight when the sugar cravings came back with a vengeance. She kept telling me it wasnt that I gave up sugar it was that I was on diet pills. I was never on diet pills! I got irritated. Its like I have to be the biggest loser. Ok...not in that sense...not like I actually lost more but that I am a loser. I cant do anything right on my own and she is better than me. She can do things better than me. She has more willpower than me. Now I know why I dont talk to her much.
