The other day I experienced, for the first time ever, JUDGMENT from someone on SparkPeople.com. I posted a blog entry and expressed that we eat on the go because it is necessary. Someone felt the need to say that it wasn't necessary. I deleted the comment because I'm not going to call them out by name. However...
You don't know me. You don't know my lifestyle, or my schedule, or my grocery budget. And I'm not going to make you feel justified by listing off all of those things on the Internet, just so someone can rip apart the schedule that I have painstakingly created.
I don't know what it is about people and fast food. You mention it once and they gasp at you like you're a food whore. The words barely leave your lips and someone is picturing HUGE burgers and mountains of french fries. Did it ever occur to anyone that when I say "fast food" I'm actually referring to a $1 breakfast sandwich that I can make at home? (And I WOULD make it at home, if I had the time.)
I like this website because it is a safe environment. Everyone is on the same page, everyone wants to be healthier. It's supposed to be a place to work with other people and not feel judged. In fact, I specifically asked for ENCOURAGEMENT in my blog, and I receieved the exact opposite.
Needless to say, I am disappointed and hurt that someone would go out of their way just to say I'm in the wrong. Very disappointed.
