Friend or Accomplice
Wednesday, June 05, 2013
This last week I attended a class called Change Anything. During the class, you learn there are six influences that will hinder your ability to make changes in your life. This can also including weight loss. I feel motivated, for the most part, when it comes to weight loss and am very proud of what I have accomplished so far. That being said, I realized today just how much of an Accomplice my mother and my grandmother are. We were at Breakfast (well Dinner for most people not on a night schedule) at Texas Roadhouse today. I ordered Cheese Fries to split between me and my hubby. It's one of the bad things I do every week but I don't think of it as a bad thing either. Wll they ordered a cactus blossom, which is a whopping 1700 calories, and then kept pressuring me to have some of it. Even after I ate my cheese fries and my steak but had to put my salad to go because it was too much food. They kept telling me to take it home and take half of it. Half of a blossom is 1/2 of my meal plan for the entire day.
Then on top of all that, my mom asked me how much weight I had lost, and I said, about 23 pounds since February. My grandmother then said, "that's it?" Like I should have lost more. It was just an overall frustrating day. And they wonder why I don't want to talk to them anymore.
