You work out, gain weight, you think you're doing good, feeling good, getting "bigger" than before, but not intentionally, people you know comment on how small you are. It gets to my head, and makes me so bummed out. I was eating a lot of food because I started lifting, and someone commented how can I be so small and eat a lot.
It's so depressing, and makes me sad.

Change your identity............. the post below is my post for the day. It isn't your situation, but the theory applies!
STOP PLAYING THE VICTIM! You HAVE the POWER to make HEALTHIER CHOICES!
Are YOU playing the VICTIM? Do you feel SUBJECTED to Holiday parties and FORCED to eat with NO CHOICE but to put on those HOLIDAY POUNDS? …………… STOP PLAYING THE VICTIM! You HAVE the POWER to make HEALTHIER CHOICES and to PLAN your success!
First, be honest with yourself. Are you playing the VICTIM? If so, change your IDENTITY immediately! YOU are NOT the victim! YOU are an INTELLIGENT person with the ABILITY to make HEALTHY DECISIONS and YOU are IN CONTROL of your eating habits and YOUR LIFE!
When you assume the IDENTITY of the VICTIM, you have already PLANNED defeat! With the victim mentality, you have already PLANNED to fall off your nutrition program, and you have already ACCEPTED putting on those extra pounds before you even walk through the “ballroom” door and before the Season even begins.
Assume the IDENTITY of the INTELLIGENT person that YOU ARE with the ABILITY to make healthier decisions and the POWER to follow through! PLAN your success!
DON’T show up to holiday parties already FAMISHED so that you lose your ability to make healthy decisions because you are ready to eat ANYTHING in sight! Be AWARE of your alcohol consumption and the poor choices you may begin to make under the influence of it. Stick as close to your SCHEDULED meal times as possible, regardless of the party time. Learn to INCORPORATE the Holiday Season into YOUR lifestyle instead of letting the “HOLIDAY LIFESTYLE” change you!
