Weight Loss Tracker

Some people just have to be told, I suppose...

Foodie friend just sent me another Papa John's internet coupon in my e-mail. For those who don't have these, it's a pizza joint.

Okay, I know I had pizza this weekend, but it's the first one I've had since before my surgery in November. It certainly isn't a habit. Now, this friend KNOWS I've been losing weight (though I still haven't told her or her husband about my surgery), so WHY would she send pizza coupons??? GRRR!

So today I finally did what I should have from the onset and sent her a reply:

I will pass this on to [DH], but obviously I'm not eating like this anymore, so I can't do anything with these. :( If you want to pass them on, maybe send them to him at [e-mail address].

Let's see if this does it. I mean, wow... And what's sad is that her husband has diabetes, is suffering from an injury to the bottom of his foot that he got when we were all in Hawaii in OCTOBER, and a big part of the reason it's not healing is he does not take care of himself nutritionally! He could stand to lose about 50 pounds, and I don't think he eats that great, though he SAYS he's been doing better lately and actually seeing a diabetes nutritionist. She, however, is about 5'2" and weighs less than 100 pounds.

But still, you would think I wouldn't have to send this e-mail...


  1. People dont think sometimes. Or they think "aw...she's probably given up on her diet now"...

    you did the right thing. It will be interesting to hear if you get a response.

  2. She responded, but it was about the rain I was complaining about. Nothing was said about the coupons.

  3. Sometimes people hear but don't really listen. Not sure what kind of a friend sends coupons to someone who's consistently said "I don't need or want these now, thanks." (A misplaced kindness? Who knows what shes thinking.) Seems to me she's just not taking you losing the weight seriously. Your email was surprisingly mild considering you must be feeling more than cross lol. Well done.

  4. Thanks, Dash. So far I have never said, "Please don't send these to me." Instead I would bitch about it here and wonder why on EARTH she would send them when she KNOWS I've been losing weight. If she sends it again, I will take it up a notch, but I don't want to hurt her feelings. She's sweet as the day is long, but not quite the sharpest crayon in the bunch, if you know what I mean. :)
