So, there are these family members that we see fairly often in a week. We get together for dinner, or they come to our house. Sometimes we visit just because. You get the idea.
I get so very bothered when comments are made about what I choose to eat or not eat.
So, tonight we went out to eat. I looked up the menu online before we went so I knew what I was going to get. Buffalo chicken wrap (no cheese, no onions, ranch on the side). The chicken was a fritter type but I knew all day I was going to have that and I planned for it. I had no problems about what I ate. (Well, except for the fries, I planned to not have any but I had a handful but whatever I'm not going to get hung up on that). After we ate, I made a random comment about how full I was. This started a conversation about how if that made me full, then I'm probably just used to not eating enough in general...blah blah blah.
Thing is it's not the first time these people have talked about this to me. What they don't get is that since being on SparkPeople, I've learned so much about what healthy portions are. I can eyeball something fairly well when trying to figure what a serving is. If I'm not sure I usually just skip it or just have very little. I'm happy having food on my plate and not going back for a second or third helping.
They brought doughnuts over last weekend. Ugh. This does not even tempt me. Especially after what happened. When I heard they were coming over with doughnuts I said to my husband something like oh great now I have to hear about not eating them. To be polite (and I know I shouldn't have) I ate a half a glazed. I couldn't believe how awful-sweet that thing was. It gave me a headache all day.
I'm just sick of the comments. Because I am eating better and they are not. I can stop and they go back for more. They buy bakery sweets to snack on I don't buy that stuff.
Sorry, don't even know why I bothered blogging about this. I know we all run into this. Just feeling fed up at the moment.
