the gym.

so the wife and I joined our local community center gym about three weeks ago. I have been working out 5or 6 times a week. I have to say that I love it!!!! I have gotten so adictted to the feeling I get after and hour in the tredmill an 30 mins with the weights that if I had the time I would probelby go twice a day. Now here is the funny part. I mentioned to my friend the other day that I loved going to the gym. I don't know what I expected from her , nothing really but the reaction that I got shocked me. She said well your just like K, taking time away from your kids just to workout. I just looked at her. I mean I go to the gym before work and it's while the kids are in school, or we all go to the gym and walk the indoor track toghether I don't take any time from my kids, and what if I did give myself 90 mins to get healty and in a good state of mind would that be so bad? I guess that I should consider the source of this comment it was from a friend that got mad at me when I decided to lose weight before and lost 150 pounds. I have since put about 50 back on and I want to get rid of it again so I guess she will be mad again, oh well I have to do what is good for me and my family not her. It just surprised me she was so willing to put me down for a good habit. It makes me wonder what she would say if I told her I was going to start smoking crack??

I think the friend is jealous that you're doing what she doesn't seem to want to do.

Who cares what she thinks? You deserve huge kudos for getting healthy. That will ensure that you are around and in good shape to spend many more years with your kids. Good for you!

kudos to you for spending time in a gym working out (and for losing the weight...how did you do that?)

I agree with what Amy said, sounds like your friend is jealous. You're doing what makes you feel good and it's too bad your friend can't appreciate that point.

Hmmm, think she might be falling more into the aquaintace" category if she was my friend

friend jealousy is never fun

but it's nice to fit into a size smaller to show off!

When I tell a couple of friends that I'm dieting, they bring me sausage-fries-bread, instead of fresh fruit.

LOL, you should try the crack line ... the look on her face would be worth it! She should be proud of you ... taking time now to be healthy for your kids and to be around longer to be in their lives! You go on .....
