So Unfair...

Pardon me for a little whine. Why is it that metabolisms are so diverse? I've been working out, I've been not eating sugar and trying to eat decently overall, and slowly the pounds will start to come off, and then inch back up again in the blink of the eye - like if I happen to eat something salty the night before. Oh heaven forbid I have some sodium! Water retention - eek!

Then there's the girl who sits a few seats down from me. She's thin, and has a nice figure. She munches throughout the day, never works out, and just now came back with some frozen custard from down the street and I guarantee it will never show up on her body. She's in her late 30's so I'm pretty sure this is the metabolism she will have for some time.

So unfair.

Ugh! I'm 100% with you. I have such a hard time not hating those girls and wanting them to all move somewhere far away. I try to bring them treats to fatten them up so I look better but it never works. Those little brats...

I say this as a thin person: do not assume thin people have it easy. There's something you don't know about this girl's physiology. Or maybe she IS lucky enough to have a faster metabolism, but it won't last. I inherited my mother's thin genes and got away with eating everything my whole life and then one day it stopped and I started wearing everything I ate (mid-30's). And here I am (almost 40), on permanent fitness and diet. I only know one small, thin woman who honestly has a hard time MAINTAINING her weight (incredible), but that's not necessarily good either. She has increased health risks for things like osteoporosis, etc. Please don't waste your energy hating these people (though I know it's easy!). You'll never know the whole story.

Regina, oh gee, I don't hate her at all. She's a friend of mine here at work. I'm just envious.
