Well meaning friends

Monday, October 17, 2011

I have nice friends, they try to be kind and supportive. Oftentimes though it can be offered with food. Today my girlfriend dropped off a piece of pie for me "just because" she knew it was my favorite. I thanked her of course. When she had gone I ate a bite of it. I was very relieved to find out it wasn't very good and got rid of it.
Of course this is all my own fault. I am known to one and all as a choocolate and wine lover so that is what people tend to get me. I also stopped telling people about my healthy eating attempts because it became too embaressing after the zillionth time of starting and stopping. How can I expect support if I don't tell anyone? But still...I feel like for now this is my secret.
But I DID throw away the pie after one bite!!!!!!

    Well done for resisting! All over Christmas, people have been feeding me biscuits and cake! Back to the Mediterranean diet today!

For so long our culture has been friendship = food. Many a friendship has been formed and solidified over a meal or coffee and dessert. Old habits die hard! Congratulations to you for resisting! Not sure I could have done it!

You're doing great!

Keep taking those Baby Steps. Get them well indoctrinated into your new SP lifestyle and you'll be fine.

I'm a chocolate gal. GOOD chocolate, not just any. Portion control is a key for me.

    Good for you for throwing out the pie once you realized it wasn't so good tasting after all! I know what you mean about the well meaning intentions of others. Even family (most especially family, actually) can be quite guilty of things like this.....(even when they KNOW we are counting calories.) I also understand about the wanting to keep it a secret (about your weight loss plans). During my pregnancies I had gestational diabetes. I kept it a secret (b/c I didn't want pity), but it also meant I got lots of plates of desserts offered to me with loud proclamations that I was eating for two...! I have a sweet tooth. But, I stuck to my plans and didn't eat the desserts. It just takes determination, determination, matter WHAT anyone else is offering.
