A few folks at work are bothering me with their execuses in that they are not happy with being overweight. Constantly complaing about it.
Not to sound too harsh but the last few months has really enlighted me on my fellow workers.
I been commuting to work over the last 4 months. Now I am not naturally gifted in any area of exercise.
I am 37 years old, 6,2, and about 194 to 200 lbs at any given time. Sine I am not naturally skinny I have to work maintain under 200lbs.
Basically if I am not biking, I run and lift weights to burn calories as to not to become too fat.
So since I started biking to work many co wokers have commented that they wish they could do the same, but a few are really getting on my nerves because they always complain about their problems with weight and obesity but never do dang thing about it.
I have basically tried just about everything and have given completly up on them as just an excuse mongers.
As an example today, my boss came by drinking a super rich choclate milk bottle of about 450 calories. He said ahh I like this stuff. Then he looks at the bottle of milk and says man there is like 450 calories in that stuff. I was shocked of course. He said, gosh it is hard to keep under 3000 calories a day with me drinking 2 to 3 of these a day.
I said wow, that is a ton of calories. He says what do you care you bike like a ton of miles anyway and cant get fat. I said like many times before that I have to watch what I eat as well.
I also told him that 1 of my frozen dinners contains about the same calories as his milk. Later as I came back to my desk with my lunches he walks by. On the top of my dinners are low fat dinners that have the colorie labels. I had 2 dinners sitting out with a combine value of 520 calories for both items. I also had a diet pop.
He looked at the values and said well you see here the only problem is the sodium content is too high !
Execuse after excuse of not being able to walk, bike, lift wieghts and diet has lead me to think he is a constant complainer.
Oh by the way he has a fee gym that the company pays for !
Any of you have advice or similar folks at your work ?
