Boring

You are boring someone said to me ,but at least I'm thinner can't you see.

I asked why is that so, because I only eat this and that dont you know.

No bread or toast you don't eat anymore ,you want to go running,that makes me a bore .

I said back I'd rather be that way, after all the effort for five weeks .I still have cakes ,alcohol and some treats.

I may put weight on whilst I am away,but off if it will come off hip hip hooray.

So thanks to you all on this great place ,I can get advice and show my face .but ones things for sure and will be true ,I'll never be boring with whatever I do.

Thanks

Gary

If some tells me I’m ‘boring’ for not having a drink I reply “you don’t know me very well!”😂😜

Ignore them Gary . . . Nothing boring about being slimmer and fitter 😊

I hate it when people tell me I "have" to get drunk at least once. Why? I have no desire to behave like an idiot and then feel horrible the next day. If other people want to endanger their own health that's their business, but I'll darn well do what I want with my own body, thanks!

I agree with the others, you're definitely not boring gman1961 ! :)

VickyDLM, I find the 'have to get drunk' phrase interesting.....what is it they cannot face up to if they don't get drunk?

I love hearing people say "It was a great weekend", and when you ask what they did - they can't remember. ???? How can it be a great weekend if you can't remember? lol

I have no idea, VDP. I've never understood it myself! Maybe it's the lure of the forbidden, or the idea that you have to be plastered to have fun?

I totally agree with that, kiwikyd-nz , not sure what the point is if you don't remember it! :O

I remember years ago now a friend telling me that when her son went drinking with his friends there was a competition to see who could be sick first..... :(

The things we do. The important thing is that we learn from this, and grow out of it, which unfortunately some don't.

How rude of them anyway. As if it is any of their business! As IndigoBlue61 says nothing boring about being slimmer and fitter so ignore them, please.

here's to boring!! Some people have a funny way of revealing their jealousy for someone who is taking control of their health and wellbeing!!

Not me let them drink themselves into oblivion.

The bigger the group,the more differences show up.

My friend is like a hoover at the table ,and then says they don't eat carbs at home,doing very well whilst away.
