    Default January Weight Loss Challenge

    It really upset me, is that how people see me? 😥
    Wow that's a big assumption to make for a start. There are lots of reasons people mountain bike, weight loss is rarely one of them. I don't know what to say to help you feel better but if you haven't MB before, please don't let him put you off it. It's a friggin awesome sport.

    Oh calico, I'm so sorry he said that to you! What an awful awful thing to say! I'm so angry on your behalf, I wish I was there with you so I could have given him an earful. What an absolute pig of a man! I can assure you, this is NOT how people see you. He is a rude, arrogant, pig headed man who speaks out of his backside. Normal people do not think like he does.
    Hugs. Don't let his stupid words get you down. If you feel inclined you could send that bike store an email (or Facebook!)- something along the lines of how he's lost your business, awful customer service, word of mouth/reputation. If I was his boss I'd be livid!! 👿

    I've lost 1.2kg this week... My body is feeling good. Sore but good!! I've decided to lock in 3 gym times that I go to each week and then anything extra is a bonus.

    How horrible is that man! Definitely would not be buying a bike from him.

    Does anyone have a Fitbit Zip? I have a Jawbone Up but I hate things on my wrist so I was looking for one I could clip on me.

    Thanks so much for your comments, I really appreciate the support.
    I think I was just so shocked in the moment that I didn't know what to say and let it slide. It was only when I walked out the door that it hit me. When I told my DP he was furious and wanted to email them himself. He's a mad keen mountain bike rider and spends a lot of money in that shop. Not any more.
    I've drafted an email, I plan to send it tonight. I hate confrontation but am just so upset by this, I can't let it slide. I judge myself harshly enough without having other people throw in their digs as well. I think it just made me feel like people must just see me as a fat girl who needs to needs to lose weight, not as a person, I don't know if that makes sense.
    Thanks again everyone, you've definitely made me feel much better 😊

    I hate that he's done this to you! That he's made you feel this way! One stupid, thoughtless, irresponsible throw away comment and look at what it's done. I'm sorry, he really needs to be taken to task over this. What a great way to run a business *eye roll* He can not speak to people like that and get away with it.
    As angry and upset as I am for you, please please don't let him get to you. You are more than you think! You mean the world to a lot of people. People see you are a beautiful person. Hugs. We are our own worst enemies sometimes. He probably hasn't given his stupid comment another thought! *********.

    Calicocat I am so sorry that pig of a man said that to you. How disgusting.

    As for me I am down to 92.9 courtesy of a bout of gastro while camping, that was fun... Not. I am still laying in bed with a really bad back ache and if I stand for too long I feel like I'm going to collapse. Weight will go back up when I am back to normal. But it was nice to see that number 😂 even if the reason was so unpleasant.

    Hi all. Back our trip. Yesterday and today have been pretty good food-wise and I've just been for a run. Will weigh in again on Friday.
