Yesterday was Father Day, which I know is a huge day for cooking out. After spending most of the day with my dad, it was time to visit my boyfriend's father. They were cooking all types of things such as sausages, cheese burgers, baked beans, potato salad, and so on. Of course all of these things I do not need right now. I found it really hard being around everyone who was eating without a thought. Sometimes it is hard because I know that I cannot be that way. Of course cheating once in awhile will not lead to gaining 50 lbs, however some people just have better metabolisms than others. I know even if I am healthy I will always have to eat a certain way because I gain weight easily. It sucks but that is something I must accept.
Moving on though this made me feel discouraged and hungry but I did not eat any of it. I waited till I got home to have my healthy wheat pasta, low sodium tuna, and light sauce. It may have been hard during those couple hours but I felt so much better at the end of the day. It was freeing knowing I do not have to worry what the scale might say because of eating the not so healthy foods. I overcame it and I was perfectly fine without eating that stuff. It can be done everyone although it might be hard.
