I'm still living with that room mate I was talking about not long ago. Nothing has changed. He's now accusing me of lying to him in order to get out of East New York. I've been having a difficult time losing weight since. I mentioned that I wanted to eat some avocados and we got into a heated argument.<br><br><br><br>
He said that I should not eat avocados because they'll make me even more fat than I am now. He said that I don't have the desire to lose weight...that I will stay fat for the rest of my life.<br><br><br><br>
I will admit that my eating habits were destructive. But he has no right to treat me like he has.<br><br><br><br>
Soon, I will be starting a job that will pay me enough money to move out, into a place of my own...away from Jack (my room mate).<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rifle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":gun:">

Well, she did say she's getting a new job that will allow her to move on and get out of the situation... It sounds to me like she IS trying to change the situation...<br><br><br><br>
It's really hard to realize you're in a destructive environment and then get up the courage to get out all on your own. I haven't read up on your situation a lot, except for this post and the last about almost getting kicked out ... but it sounds to me like you're doing your best to get organized and become financially ready to move on without the help of your overly-critical roommate.<br><br><br><br>
As far as losing weight goes ... it really upsets me that your roommate is being so horrible about your weight. I saw the picture of you that you posted a while back, and you don't appear to be dangerously overweight or anything! ... I think you're doing the right thing - there are more important things to attack first, like improving your living situation and your own happiness. I think once you become happier with your life away from your roommate, your new job, your new home, etc., then you can really start to work on the other parts of your life, like your weight. You're having to deal with an awful lot of stress as it is; your eating habbits will gradually improve once you've tackled the other stresses in your life, I think, and then you'll be more able to continue to improve them once some other things are in order.<br><br><br><br>
I really hope you're able to get out of this situation and into a better environment. Best of luck to you!!!

congratulations on the job! it'll be a really positive step forward when you manage to get your own place. its also great that you recognise that its not appropriate for people to treat you without respect, and that you're making changes. i hope things work out well for you.
