The Bigger My Page Gets.....

The more I realize I will offend or piss people off even if I don't intend to.  Most recently is the whole "I did not have weight loss surgery" debacle.  

I was just stating a fact, that I didn't have WLS, but yet there were people on both sides of the fence attacking each other then turning around and attacking me.

Yes, I deleted both statuses because of all the attacking going on or I would have banned almost every. single. person. that was being negative.

When did people forget others have feelings?

Forget the whole WLS vs. "Old Fashioned Way" thing......this attacking instead of building others up is the norm for people online.  Not everyone mind you but from just my experiences with having my journey in the media, people can be pretty shitty.  

When my magazine cover came out for every supportive message or comment I got, I had 5 more telling me that they photoshopped my mouth and I was an fugly fat bitch.

I know it's the risk for putting myself out there but come on....that does not excuse the horrible behavior of others.  Heaven forbid I call them to task because of their behavior.  Then I'm labelled as too sensitive or negative.  

Just keep in mind next time you see a rant from me:

I don't stand by when my inner voice tries to tear me down....so why wouldn't I stand up for myself or for YOU when others try to do it?

So my message to all of the hateful & petty negative people that stumble across my fan page & blog.....


Maybe if you did you'd have something to show for it ;)


Oh this is for the people asking me to be positive or they are going to stop following me lol

  4. Yes - and go ahead and have someone just block all the nasty comments and commenters from your FB. Obviously they have nothing better to do than wait to pounce on something you say and be nasty. who needs it?

  6. I truly think there are people out there that totally get off on hurting peoples feelings and being mean. Social media makes it easier for them to do because they can hide behind their computer screen as they use their small minds to try to break peoples spirits. If they had to do it face to face 95% would have nothing to say because they are cowards. You go girl.

  10. Oh, for pete's sake. Tanee, stop wasting your energy on negative people. You have accomplished a wonderful thing and now you're sharing your journey with people who need to hear what you have to say. Stay focused on the positive.

    1. In order for me to be positive I need to address the negative from time to time. If i do not address it, it will fester & I will only be faking the positivity....would you rather i do that?

    2. Tanee, you are absolutely right! You need to acknowledge the haters. You are also showing your followers they can and should stand up for themselves!!!! Just because people are being cowards and saying nasty things online (as opposed to in person) doesn't make it any less hurtful. It's unacceptable and you speaking to it in the manner you do, shows those haters that they can't bring you down!!! Keep doing what you're doing because you are an inspiration!!

  12. Know what you're talking about. Some are jealous. Some are envious. You're a success and I admire all the people who have succeeded and are still going strong and working on themselves.

  13. Keep doing your thing! If you accidentally hurt someone's feelings, oh well.

  14. If there is one thing I have learned in my short 40 years of life it is that for every success, there is someone standing there to tear you down. I honestly think there are people out there who cannot handle when another person achieves a goal. Then you have those who are jealous because they want to be where you are...they just don't want to do what they have to in order to get there. I know this from experience. No, I have not reached my weight loss goal, but I have reached other goals. I quit smoking and stopped taking in caffeine. For that, I lost the support of a family member. Because we no longer had that thread in common...they felt they could no longer handle my company. It was their loss. Just take stock in the fact you have every right to be proud of your accomplishments...regardless of how others feel. I can assure you, your blog is helping so many people. Not to mention, you are giving a certain 'fan base' something to keep themselves busy, as well... I always figured if people are griping about me...they are leaving others alone. :)

    “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

  17. People have miserable lives and they want everyone to feel worse than them, so they can feel better! Sad isn't it? Mean people suck, the rest of us rule :)
