Vegetarian gets me annoyed.

Saturday, April 24, 2010

No, vegetarians don't annoy me, but going out to a dinner and having the vegetarian entry can. I got a lovely veg. meal at a dinner the other day and all the people at my table (who I know well), asked "are you vegetarian?" Well I am most of the time now, but I still have some meat. But I had some teeth out a week ago and am still on fairly soft stuff. Meat isn't working right now and it was the traditional rubber chicken at this dinner.
Well then the guy who works in the beef industry was, "have you gone vegetarian?" in horror and I had to explain again about the teeth because I didn't want to get into it with him.
Then I said to them, I can't believe my boldness but I was fed up with the remarks.
"I find it amazing how many people comment on my vegeatarian meal but as a fat person, no one has ever commented when I have ice cream (thank goodness)" That shut them up.
Really, folks, it is rude to comment on others food choices.
But hey, the veg meal was the best at the table, I have to say.
Tonight I am at a dinner that is prepared by people in their home, so I am not going to bother with the vegetarian bit, though will probably only have a few bites of the meat, due to my healing teeth.

    I totally agree with you....it is rude to comment on others food choices. I especially don't like it when someone pulls out their lunch at work and someone always has to say....ewwww you eat that?? or something along those lines. If any one ever comments on my food choice I just look at them and say, I'm the one eating it, not you.

I loved your comeback comment!! Good for you :)

I ran

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Today I had a long walk, my Jane Jacobs route for next week. Took the dog. He was playing in the school yard and wanted me to play to. So I took a few running steps and he ran and ran, so happy.

My weight dream

Friday, April 23, 2010

My friend wants to go in a glider as a reward when she loses weight. I have decided that I want to run. I have a picture of a marathon beside my computer. I won't go that far but I know my dog would love it if I ran with him.

  I'm hoping that I'll get to a point where I can run along with you. :) Maybe a 5k in 2011?

Still working on the veggie.

Friday, February 19, 2010

I will remain an ovo-lactarian vegetarian. Need a variety of non carb foods as diabetic. Have to watch the nuts and cheese though. I can't drink regular milk except in tea as lactose intolerant. Will move from regular cheddar to no fat or low fat.
