My cousin and her boyfriend are trying to lose weight and they’re doing great. They both lost around 30 pounds since the spring. The problem is my cousin’s boyfriend’s weight loss is very visible, where my cousin’s is not yet, so he receives a lot of compliments while people don’t even know she’s losing weight.

This is really hurting her and definitely affecting her progress. I’ve given her advice about this before, but now I’m going to post it here for anyone struggling to see results.

You cannot place your happiness in other people’s compliments.

If you’re losing weight you need to do it for you, not that guy you like or those people you want to impress or the compliments you desperately want to receive. You need to go about your weight loss for your own personal reasons because if you’re doing it for someone else, it will be a lot less attainable.

Compliments are great and everything, but what’s more important is you and how much better and healthier you feel. A hundred compliments can’t replace that feeling of improved health.

There are a lot of healthy eating/lifestyle documentaries out there, but Hungry for Change is by far my favorite. I really like the experts they chose to profile and weigh in on the issues with our food system. You can tell they have a lot of experience and really know what they’re talking about.

I’d recommend this doc to anyone who wants to change their eating habits.

This guy shot into a car of black teenagers and killed one for playing their “thug music” too loud at a convenience store and is (rightfully) sentenced to life in prison. And how do they portray him? Crying, “heartbreaking final words”, “learned his punishment”.

WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK!  He shot and killed their son and his words are heartbreaking!?  Their grief is heartbreaking and his sentence is perfect.  Shall I find another rapist that is crying for you to portray as the victims too?  Fuck this man.  Fuck the media.  Fuck my country.

Coworker: Who’s this guy you’ve been talking to?

Me: Ah he’s such a dork and I’m a dork so it works.

Customer in next aisle: Hey dork, I need some help with these denture creams!

My life.
