Husbands Birthday Dinner !

Friday, January 27, 2012

Hi everyone! K, so "the family" is taking the hubby out for dinner tonight! Uggggh! I already studied the menu, so my daughter and I decided to split a grilled chicken breast meal with all veggies and salad. The thing I hate the most about this is, everyone else at the table whines that you are not eating enough or some junk like that. I don't like it when other get jealous because they have no plan of attack for their weight issues, so they eat whatever they want and than focus the night on how you didn't eat the most fatten dish. REALLY! Common folks, wake up, right? I am proud that my daughter and I have a plan before we go and our excuse is that we had a big lunch. Believe me, we eat plenty of food, it's just healthier than others choose. I am proud to say I have taught my daughter a healthy lifestyle and she abides by it. You are what you eat. Although, we do get 1 cheat day a week to eat WHATEVER our sweet lil' hearts desire. Ummmmy, that's tomorrow. Sometimes you don't want the cheat day, because you have worked so hard to look good and I feel and look much better then ever. K, thanks for letting me blog and vent. Love to ALL! xoxoxox

    Jealousy is an ugly thing, and the ones who are jealous don't usually even realize it themselves. *sigh* If you pointed it out then they'd just be jealous and mad at you too... *sigh again*

    I've never understood peoples' proprietary attitudes about food anyway. My MIL used to take her adult children and spouses out to a nice dinner for a Christmas gift and they always rolled their eyes when I ordered seafood - because I LOVE it, and don't make it at home very often. The rest of the family, minus my husband, who is a surf-and-turf guy, were having their prime rib (which I view as just very good roast beef, which I happen to eat at home rather often) and gushing over how great it was, and rarely even asked how my "fish" was! They did this even at Red Lobster!! o.O

    I like your positive attitude about teaching your daughter. You're not only teaching her good eating habits, but how to deal with peer pressure as well! Good job!

    I think it is amazing how many people have an issue with someone else's eating habits. I think you both are smart for eating correctly! Something that might also help.... order the full meal, eat extremely slowly, moving the food around the plate several times, then ask for a doggie bag for the half you leave because you are sooooo full. That way they can't complain! After all you ordered a full meal just like everyone else, you just couldn't eat all of it!

    Well, I hope you had a great night.
