Learning to tell Friends NO
Thursday, July 28, 2011
I am just now learning to tell my friends No. No I don't want to go eat. No I don't want to fix something to eat. No I don't want to have a snack ( chips & soda). Learning to tell my family and friends No when it comes to food has been my hardest obstacle. Everybody I'm around wants to eat. Some are supposed to be on a diet, but aren't really. I have been trying to change the way I eat for a couple of years, but it is hard when everyone you know keeps pushing you towards food.
I have tried getting new friends with much the same result. They all want to go out to eat. I don't go out to eat very much at all. I would rather stay home, where I can control exactly what I eat. In this town there isn't very much to do and most of the people are overweight. We probably have more food joints than anything and they keep building them.
I try to stay away from things to do with food. Otherwise, I try to limit myself on what I eat. It is a lot harder when everyone you know goes for it, but I am trying to individualize myself from them and be a better person for it.
