Phrases I Hate + My Responses

“I stay within my calories everyday, I don’t know why I can’t lose weight.”

500 CALORIES EVERYDAY OF YOUR MYFITNESSPAL WAS STARBUCKS LATTES….

“You have to count EVERYTHING you eat? That sounds too hard.”

I ASSUME THAT TYPING ON AN IPHONE CALCULATOR IS ALSO ‘REALLY HARD’ FOR YOU…

“You have a job where you are on-call, so of course it’s easy for you to workout.”

NO, I HAVE TO MAKE MYSELF GO TO THE GYM AND CHOOSE TO EAT RIGHT JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE

“I don’t want to lift weights and look like a man, so I just do treadmill/elliptical.”

THEN BE SKINNY-FAT FOREVER…

“You have so much self-control”

WELL IF I AM ON A WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY I OBVIOUSLY WASN’T BORN WITH IT WAS I?

“Meal prep? No, I have no time for that.”

DON’T YOU OWN A CROCK-POT, YOU NINNY…

“I don’t have time to go to the gym two hours everyday day to get your results”

I HIT WEIGHTS NO MORE THAN AN HOUR A DAY, 3X A WEEK THANK YOU

“I’m starting my diet on Monday”

YOU’VE SAID THAT FOR THE PAST THREE MONDAYS NOW

“What diet are you on?”

MODERATION, VEGGIES, AND THE OCCASIONAL DQ BLIZZARD. SO I EAT THE SAME BUT LESS. IT’S NOT A DIET BTW.

Thanks for letting me get that out of my system guys…I needed it. Some days I have to hold my tongue from actually shouting some of those things at people.

What are some of the annoying things you guys hear?

  1. 1. “Ohmageerrrd what’s your secret?” It’s not really a secret. Eat well, exercise. Repeat.
    2. I complain that I’m in turmoil after a binge. The person says to me “We all have bad days.” No. Just no.
    3. “You just went for a walk. You can eat lunch now.” No.
    4. “You need to eat 2,000 calories a day to be healthy.” They wonder why I look at them funny. Please. I GAIN OFF 1,000!
    Don’t get me started!

  2. Me walk into work drinking a gallon of water, co-worker “You know you can die from too much water right.” -____- Gee Thanks for the info….

    As if I already didn’t know! I get that one alll the time! >.<
    This is a great post by the way!

    • lmao I love when people say that…they go to complete extreme…like when they know you’re committed to X amount of days at the gym, they ask you if you’re obsessed…. :/

  3. I love this post! Ones that I get include:

    “You’re so lucky to be naturally skinny” – 1. ‘Naturally’ (i.e. if I eat as much cake & pizza as I want) I am skinny fat, which is neither attractive nor healthy. 2 I’m not lucky – I work hard for it. 3. I’m not skinny – I’m strong and fit, thank you very much.

    “I want to get fit, I need your help” – I give the person great advice… and they totally ignore it.

    Argh! x

    • I can completely relate! Once you start losing weight/getting fit, everybody wants to know what you’re doing….and then do the complete opposite…or take it to the extreme (zero carbs or just salads) HELLO I DIDN’T GET FIT BY NOT EATING

  4. “I heard that doing cardio will burn my muscles for energy”

    Fuckin hate explaining this, especially when the person I’m explaining too has no sense of what source is more credible
