WW and Friendship

Happy Friday! The weekend is almost upon us. Thursday evenings are my weigh in day at WW. I’ve tried to be really strict this week and stuck to my points and stopped picking at nibbly bits at work. Last night I lost 4lbs, taking my total loss to 2 stone and half a pound. So I got my 2 stone certificate!

After I’d weighed in, one of the ladies who helps out at the meetings called me over and presented me with 2 workout DVDs. I’ve spoken in the class before about using workout DVDs as a good way of exercising at home and where no one can see you if you’re not confident enough to go out or go to a gym. I use DVDs and YouTubes as a good way to top up my exercise without having to drive 30 minutes to the gym. I thought it was really sweet that she’d think of me when she saw them at work. I felt like I’d gained a friend at that moment.

It’s kind of bittersweet though as I feel like through WW I’ve lost a friend too. I had a friend who I saw weekly and chatted to through messenger pretty much daily. She was pleased for me joining at first and liked a couple of posts on Facebook about my weight loss. Now I hear absolutely nothing from her and when I posted a picture of my certificate last night I got nothing from her, no congratulations or even a thumbs up. I know social media isn’t a good thing to base friendships on but before she liked pretty much everything I posted and commented. I’ve messaged her but I just get really short answers in return so I guess the friendship is lost which is a real shame.

Anyway it’s the weekend tomorrow which means it’s parkrunday tomorrow!

  1. You’ve done so well with your WW! But what a shame about that person. I suppose you never do know what’s happening in someone’s life at any given time tho.

  2. Well done on your weight loss, you are doing so well.
    I think social media is tricky- some people just don’t check it very often, or they update but don’t read others, so try not to take it to heart, there might be a good reason.
