New Steps

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Week 4 of giving up sweets has gone pretty well! I finally gave away those hidden sweets in my dorm room(my best friend Kevin did me a favor :P). I feel pretty good about it. I felt too guilty to just throw valentines away, but I lived vicariously through Kevin so no guilt ! :)

I'm also seriously considering taking this to new level and going for a year off of the sweets/desserts. The holidays will be the worst, not to mention college events with my hall adds on pressure.

I also have a question for anyone else avoiding the Sweets: do you feel that others view your sweet strike as a personal insult? I have gotten so many looks from people who notice me not partaking in desserts.

I suppose this stems from their own guilt of eating them because they feel they should diet too, or they feel bad eating them in front of me, but I'm not enforcing my strike on anyone else or pressuring you to give them up too by not eating dessert!

Don't feel bad eating in front of me, that just makes me feel worse!

You can be supportive of someone without joining their diet, or you can at least try to not make them feel bad for dieting. If you are trying to give something up and feel similarly, don't let others discourage you. This is very difficult at times, but knowing I lasted another day makes it worth it.

This is what I chose to do, and I want to keep my promise to myself. If I can't do that, then my promises to others lose their meaning, too.

Plus, I have gotten 6 comments from different people noticing my acne clearing up more since I quit the junk! It's kinda embarrassing that they noticed, but it's nice too. ^_^

On to week 5! emoticon

    emoticon Good for you! I know that must have been hard to clean out your stash, but you did it! YAY!
    I don't know what to tell you about how others are making you feel - I guess I would just tell you to not listen to them or just look away - You don't have to explain yourself to them. Just don't take it too personal, I am sure some of it is self-loathing on their part if they are giving you dirty looks.
    Anyway, good job on the acne clearing up!
