People who brag on Facebook

Sometimes people will post on Facebook about how well their diet is going and how many calories they burned at the gym and it is okay to punch these people square in the face. Sorrynotsorry.

    Occasionally I am guilty of posting something gaggingly (new word) fitness related, but usually only after having hit some kind of personal best (because just over one short year ago I was an overweight weakling, so pulling xxx pounds off the ground in the gym is/was a big deal), but I try NOT to make a habit of it. That said? What drives me insane are the people that post pictures of Every. Stinking. Meal. Yes, we get that you’re dieting, but we don’t need to know that you had three green smoothies just today, and are you SURE that picture of the chicken breast and brown rice isn’t the same one you used yesterday?

    While I AM still conscious about the number of calories I stuff my face with, I still get a ridiculously “neener, neener, neener” feeling when I do find myself out with friends eating something ridiculously unhealthy, and post a picture of said heart-attack on a plate. I hope all of my healthy food snapping “friends” are as green as their kale smoothies…

    That was mean, wasn’t it….But at least I haven’t resorted to punching them in the face. LOL…

      I agree with you. I lost a lot of weight around two years ago and I became pretty consumed by my exercise routine and calorie counting. The thing is, I never once bragged about it. I just didn’t feel that it was productive in any way (although internally, I was pretty smug haha). I just think that there’s so much out there to feel inadequate about and I didn’t want to add to that.
      I am conscious about what I eat also. But I wouldn’t dream of taking constant pictures of my food, I would prefer to just eat it ha!

        I agree! I probably wouldn’t have posted anything about it, but I have a chunk of people on my FL that are in my lifting group, too.. 😉 I’m not a bragger by nature; my “thing” is to help people feel good about themselves, not to drag them down. On the plus side? I inspired a couple of non-workout friends to get off the couch and move a little bit, so there was that plus. General consensus? If Jules could do it? Anyone could, LOL! 😀

        I think if it’s encouraging in any way than it’s definitively a positive thing. It’s when it gets arrogant or braggy that it’s just plain annoying but it doesn’t sound like you have that problem; in fact, think it’s lovely that you have inspired your friends so much 🙂
