just because i run a lot

doesn't mean you can make stupid comments. "you know, you're very active. you can probably stop weight watchers and counting points and maintain your weight loss long-term." and you know, you can kiss my ass. Both - AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN. Why you ask? I can't do it. I run...pathetic jog, really, and then I eat, sometimes not very well. My scale doesn't always co-operate with me on Mondays (we will NOT factor the digital devil into this count). My pants do not co-operate either (because I KNOW you helpful little vixens will be swooping in with the ever supportive "it's not always in the numbers," which is so true...but when it hits the pants, it's over!). I make bad choices sometimes. I get bored. I get lazy. I reach for whatever and my body is like "ooooh look! the good stuff is back! HURRAY!" and i think it clings to it for dear life. (like my science, eh? :P) So although I appreciate that many out there think I'm a finely tuned athlete now and can burn off a smartie just by looking at it, it just isn't so. But that would be a cool party trick, eh?

true true! I'm super active, always have been b/c of basketball but have always had a weight problem. We'll all need to watch what we eat - forever, as depressing as that sounds!

Oh, you CAN stop now? Oh make sure to thank that person personally from me for making you aware of that. Pheeeeeeew, good thing that person came along to enlighten all of their health weight maintenance wisdom! Or else, you just might keep on with your weight loss maitenance struggle unnecesarily!

Ha! I just had that conversation with someone this week. I will never be able to stop counting points, or that weight will be back overnight. Some people really just don't use their brains!

Gotta love the unsolicited advice! Annoying, isn't it?

People even say that with someone who isn't active - they tell me I should be able to stop counting now that I've lost the weight. Um, yah, and gain it all back??? I don't think so!!!! I need the restrictions cuz I don't have them naturally.
