Why is that when you and a "friend" are both trying to loose weight they always feel the need to make themselves feel better "one uping" you?
A guy friend from hs (his wife) and I were pregnant at the same time and had our boys like 2 weeks apart. We both have had a really hard time loosing weight after our pregnancies and have both (on our own) decided to loose weight. I am doing diet and exercise and she is doing some kind of crazy protein diet and b12/phentermine shots.
She started posting pictures of her results on Facebook and after her talking me into posting mine I finally did and about 5 minutes later she posts a new picture of herself and I can admit she does look better than me and I tell her I think so. And she replies back "you should do what I'm doing"
I feel like she only posted a picture to rub it in my face that she's loosing weight faster. I was trying to pay her a complement and I feel like she threw it back

Woman are always competing even if they don't realize it. She may be gaging her progress by yours. Remember, slow and steady wins the race...not that it even matters. When your trying to loose the baby weight don't think about cosmetic vanity. Just think about how healthy and strong you want to be..so you can play with your kids and see your grandkids get married...These things make striving to look good in a bikini seem silly.
