You always make me chuckle sabine; you look at others, envy them, then wonder why you envy them. It's like you know that you really shouldn't care but you still let yourself care.
Besides all of that weight is just a number. Can't dwell on being fatter or skinnier or taller or shorter or whatever. 194.5LBS could be all fat, or all water, or all muscle and none of that really matters. What does matter is your health, your well being, and your self confidence. You can't let a number make or break you. You've gotta gauge how you look, feel, and act. I never look at a weight loss without reflecting on a health gain. The number that is going down is far less relevant than the energy that is subsequently going up. If your short friend is 191 but shorter and you're 194.5 but taller you've got one of 2 options- Decide to go as mario and luigi for halloween or share your primal knowledge and help better the both of you. After all you have a very envious/comparative nature. Why not make an opponent out of her as far as weight loss and health and use that as a driving force for the both of you to make yourselves healthier and stronger?
