Have you ever decided that you were going to try change your lifestyle with the main focus being weight loss and your friend decided they wanted to join in that journey with you? It's fun to have a friend join you in a journey; to have and give support and motivation. What if that friend starts having better results and faster results than you; especially if you feel that you have been more dedicated?
I'm going to be honest here and say normally I become I poor sport about the whole thing. I tell myself that the person is lying about their numbers or sucking it in for pictures. Basically any excuse that I can think of to debunk the fact they are having results that are better than mine, since in my head I have been staying true to eating correctly and putting more into my workouts. All in all I become a jealous bitch. Hopefully I am not the only person who can or does get like this. Otherwise I just made myself look like a horrible person and friend and I'm not!
I have decided I am not going to be that type of person that I normally would become. I have a friend that has joined me on a program that will help us change our lifestyle. Now, I have been having results, and I am very happy and proud of myself for what little I have done. That doesn't mean that I don't wish I could have better results like my friend. I have come, finally, to the realization that we are all different and our bodies are all different. I am going to be the friend that congratulates others on getting closer to their goals and finally reaching their goals. I will use their success to boost my motivation, make me work harder, and never give up in reaching my goals and being successful myself.
