feeling a little down today

I started my weight lost journey a month ago, I've lost 5lbs and feel great about it. Yesterday I was at a family picnic and my dh's uncle (who is really snobby and stuck up) told me I would be beautiful if only I could loose the weight. Since I had my son 2 years ago I have suffered from depression and gained 60lbs. It hurts that he just judges what I look like on the outside and not the inside.

What an ass!!! Dont let what he said hurt you, I know it's hard!! I too have 60ish pounds over the last ten years due to depression. Keep up the hard work and do it for yourself not b/c some jerk says you will be beautiful if you loose weight! We are all beautiful!!

What a jag. Try to remember that people who say things like that to other people usually have some issues with themselves.

Ouch!  That was beyond insensitive.  Sadly, there will always be the nay-sayers, and it's worse when they're someone you care about.  Try not to let it get you down for too long.  Focus on the supportive comments, because I would have to imagine there are more of those if people know you're doing well!

Great job on those first 5 lbs!!  You're off to a fantastic start!  You've got this, mama!  =)

What a jerk.  You know you are working on it, so let it go or turn it into fuel for yourself.  The things some people will say never cease to amaze me (and not in a good way!)

You already know he is a stuck up snob, so shake it off and move on.  You can DO this :)

What an A-hole! So freakin rude! Some people just need to keep their mouths closed. I wouldn't pay any attention to him. There is obviously something going on with him that he feels the need to be rude to others. Sorry chick! ((Hugs!)

Ahhh, not nice when people are rude. Just ignore what he said and focus on your goals....you can lose the weight....you will be healthier, slimmer and a great momma....he will still be a jerk!

There are assholes EVERYWHERE. Just remember that your worth is not defined by the way you look or how much you weigh. If you want to lose weight, do it for yourself. *hugs*
