Choosing to eat healthy is my choice

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

It is my choice to eat as healthy as possible. I cannot make those around me follow suit. Even though the choices they make are literally making them seriously ill. What frustrates me so is the lack of concern they have. If I were honest I have to admit being a bit resentful. I have to work that much harder with all of the out of bound foods surrounding me. It doesn't seem fair. However, I can see the difference sticking to my plan makes. I need to hold on to this. Finding distractions help. It is good to have an outlet such as Spark People who is composed of individuals who have some of the same goals and motivation I do. Communicating with the group is a major part of helping me remain motivated.

    I have been feeling resentment as well and found I was judging others harshly. I have not figured out yet how to comfortably aim for my standards and let others have theirs in this overeating culture. Onwards!

    I too have to put the "blinders on" and tune out what those around me are
    doing. Your commitment to good health will pay off for you, and hopefully
    be the example others need to see. (We can only hope)

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    I have the same kind of situation you've written about right now... so I feel for ya.
    My adult daughter moved back home until she gets a full time job. My "clean" sugar free house is filled with candy, chips, processed foods of all sorts. It does make it harder for me but I try to look at it like a mental self-control & strength training to avoid the bad food!
    I like how you state it is YOUR choice to eat healthy. emoticon
    Thanksgiving is a tough one today... I'll remember your words. Glad you blogged this because I needed to read those simple words... "It's my choice to eat healthy"... and "I need to hold on to this." Perfect.

    It's nice that you are concerned about others, but only they can do it for themselves. Good job on your part!

    It is hard, but we can only for sure be in charge of ourselves.

    Hugs and happy Thanksgiving.
