I know I am a walking contradiction
Now, people are really noticing that I’ve lost weight. I’ve heard a couple of people say this week that I look great, and asked me for my secret for having dropped a “lot of weight”. They were a bit disappointed when I said that eating less and exercising. Well, can’t say I’ve found a magic pill. That’s a good thing.
What I am also noticing is a different response from men to me as well. I’ve had three co-workers propose or hint some rather indecent things with me within the last week. It’s actually rather annoying (which is surprising to me). A few guys have started their sentences with “Hey sexy”, and instead of making me feel good, it irks me. I guess I am still hoping someone likes me for me, and sees past the looks — skinny or fat. I know some are trying to be nice, but the sexual innuendo doesn’t need to happen at the workplace. What Tim was warning me about a bit over a month ago, is basically happening in practice now, and I am nowhere near my goals.
And I am not that skinny either. I now weigh 293 lbs. Today, I’ve actually eaten way much more than I really need to, and on purpose. I’m feeling like my hamstrings, which I pulled Sunday, would enjoy the extra protein boost to repair themselves finally, and maybe I’ll feel rejuvenated for the weekend, too. I am not feeling particularly tired, but I feel like I have been very close to being “depleted”. So, one high calorie day, and I can go a few days on 1700 -1800 kcal range, too.
I can’t wait to go work-out properly! This hamstring injury is bugging the heck out of me!!!!
This is just an example of a part of an email I received from one of my co-workers today, after I had just declined his offer to take me out of town… I have NEVER flirted with him. I have said twice now that him and I are nothing but friends, but this is what I get anyway:
We get the Two-Room suite any time we want and or two rooms……. or
you and I could go and just get one room….. maybe a King room this
time now that we know each other a little better…. *wink* *wink*
I haven’t replied. I am still annoyed.
