Took this on our TV just a little while ago, can you see that score?????
Now seriously folks, this guy's puppy didn't just get eaten by accident, he didn't just realize that his baby really IS ugly, his kidneys didn't cease to function... His freaking beloved TEXAS LONGHORNS were about to lose. Which they ended up doing in GRAND fashion.
I am so sick of hearing how fantastic Texas is, how Mack Brown is the second coming, how they saved the Big 12, blah freaking blah blah blah.
No more title hopes for you, LONGHORNS! Mwaaaaa Ha-Haaaaa.
Ok, I'm done being a competitive infant for now...
But this brings me to my REAL question...do weight loss bloggers revel in a little schadenfreude? Sure some bloggers want you to believe that we are one big happy family working towards a common goal, which most of us probably are...
However, even in families there are those you don't necessarily care for or are competitive with...Right? Admit it!
How do you think Nicky Hilton REALLY felt?
And there are those that you relish in seeing fail...maybe because they are overpaid and underworked, or just idiotic collections of genes...
So sure we don't *like* to see people gain, and I am guessing NO ONE will admit to thinking "YESSSS!" when someone who has been cheating off plan non stop has a gain one week.
BUT, when people gain or have bad weeks on the scale, does it in fact make us feel a bit better? Like we are not being passed up-like we are still in the race?
Be honest-do other's bad scale days make us feel better about our own weight loss? And if so, is this such a bad thing? Does this revoke our 'good person' tag?
Or is this part of the support part of weight loss blogging-believing that the journey sucks for everyone and knowing everyone has bad days? So maybe all the support isn't having well wishes given, but in knowing everyone is human and bound to fail sometime?
Or is this only hurting our own loss by focusing on other's success/failure?
