Friends can make you fat

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I have been doing great.... Now down to 208 and pushing!!! I have also been blogging quite a lot and trying to get some traffic on my site. Please check it out. Here is a sample with the link to the rest of the blog!

Friends can make you fat!

How many times have you tried to start losing weight and one friend or another begins to sabotage you? What do I mean by sab-o-tay-gee(likes bugs bunny used to say it) you ask? The conversation usually goes like this:

"Hey we're all going out tonight are you coming" (out being to the bar on a not me)
"Nah I'm going to go home and cook after I work out"
"OMG are you serious...come on, have some fun"

Or some bullshit variation of the same conversation. Ultimately, trying to talk you into doing something that is MORE fun than the workout you have to do, and MORE delicious than the healthy choice meal that is going in your microwave. As if I don't already want to be doing ANYTHING else other than working out. In a moment of weakness, this kind of peer pressure can really derail you from your goals, and lead to the dreaded "guilt trip" that comes from "cheating" on your diet. And doesn't it suck that they are usually skinny as hell?? Feels like they like this:

Finish here!!! and comment! I love comments

    I feel you on this post - our friends mean well (and it is so much fun to go out!) but I think we need to learn to speak up more for the part of us that wants to reach our healthy goal. Not to say that will be easy though ultimately it's my journey and no one else is responsible for my success or failure but me. Thanks for posting!

    I understand that.... but fortunately for me at this time most of my circle are trying to get healthy themselves. Now my church sisters those are some eating women. So I try to avoid their outings

    I got more of a problem with the peer pressuers of my family cooking good food all the time and having gotten in to the pressure of eating desserts. ( which I never used to do until my little skinny minnie sister started eating them after every dinner) so good post and I hope you stay strong for sure.

    I know that feeling, and the bad thing is is that I just love going out! It`s just so hard for me to turn down sometimes but when I do go out, I try to make better decisions on what I intake! But yeah, going to the bar on a Monday night, not for me either!
