sabotage!

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Is there somebody in your life who is a sabotage, no matter what you try to say or do? Mine is my Mum believe it or not. I take her Christmas shopping, all the way around she saying let's have some chocolate it will make us feel better, lets have something nice, just for us. I have explained time and time again I don't want a treat that is food, lets go have our nails done or something. Nope not a chance. I took her for a cuppa in a coffee shop for a break from the shopping and she runs off and buys cake. Arghhhhh!
We have had big words about this before. I have asked nicely. Mum please, I really don't need any more 'meat on my bones' as you put it. I have more than enough for the two of us!

Does anybody else have a saboteur?

    First, I fully understand the effects of an unsupportive parent.

Second, I am grateful for a very supportive family, now.

Third, here's the good news for us all: SP provides a good means of support from folks "who know"!

Finally, and most importantly congratulations on your success in the face of bad influence.

P.S. With continued success in your program you will get to a point where you become relatively immune to outside influences on your program.

    Many people are diet saboteurs, including moms. My thought that I chose a healthy lifestyle. They did not. I ask that they respect my choice and I'll respect theirs. Most have reasons for why I should eat what they want. It's the best cake, eating should be fun, etc. A few have persisted. I asked why it was so important to them that I develop diabetes, high cholesterol and blood sugar and obesity. After I get to that point I've learned it 's best to be consistent and never enjoy an occasional treat with them. Of course I have treats, but only with people who understand.

You'll find a lot of ideas if you do a Spark Search for diet saboteurs.

    My mum just seems to be as opposite as she can. If I say "I did great today, I only ate 1250 calories!" - which is my target, btw, on both SP and BM - she says, 'That's not enough! You need to eat more!' If I say, "I've only eaten 1100 calories today, I really should find something else to eat" she says, 'Well not if you're not hungry.' This is all the while taking any opportunity she can to make some comment about me needing to lose weight. I've explained the science I'm following and she continues to argue with me, just because she's less than 7 stone herself (and super short and petite). Gah.

All that is the long version of 'I sympathise!'
