People, sometimes no matter how hard you try to get them to understand, just don't. In this particular instance I'm talking about family.
When we were little my parents started the tradition of putting a box of Smarties in my Christmas stocking and a KitKat for my sister. A couple of days ago, I told them I didn't want any this year. They scoffed at me saying that the way I exercise, "it won't hurt you" and that it was "tradition". That hurt to hear. And they completely missed the point.
Yes, I do have days where I screw up in the eating department. But I do try my best to limit those days. It doesn't always work, that's true. I try not to beat myself up when it happens. We're all human, we all make mistakes. We are not perfect.
Still, it'd be nice if they listened to me.
