Reaching My Limit with Skinny Bitches

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Okay... so you know I talk about my roomates a lot and how I wish they would motivate me and what. But this has reached my limit. They ate some of my fresh bananas I bought the other day from the grocery store. Not a problem in most cases right ??? Well in this case its a big problem, especially since I use my fruits as replacements for unhealthy snacks. Now if we were all equally contributing to this factor in the house it wouldn't be a big deal. But they still eat out or are cooking things with a lot of carbs that are unhealthy for me to eat. They share with each other but not with me.. (mainly because they are closer friends) nonetheless this upset me today, because I felt that was something that they should have understood..... I wasn't always buying fruits and vegetables and salads. Now that I am if you want some ASK DAMMIT... don't just take at your leisure because you live there. Now it makes me wonder what else is being eaten of mine... thats "healthy" I left a very detailed note and I hope nobody got offended by it but if they did I am in the I don't care mode, because, this diet and exercise thing is important to me and even if they are not in the same boat then they can at least respect me I feel.

I want your opinions on this spark people family... if they do get upset how should I handle the situation and help them to see things through my eyes. Especially since they don't understand me counting the calories and me avoiding certain foods. They don't understand the backlash that can happen. I may have been a bit brash with them but still..... this is a rough journey and it means a lot to me to lose this weight and get confident again.

    First they shouldn't take your things without asking you first. They know you are trying to lose weight they just don't care about your feelings. When I buy healthy foods for me in my house and my sons used to eat my things up. I told them I didn't mind but, please ask first. Since then I haven't had any problems. I think you did right by leaving them a note.

    We talked about it, and they are upset because I think I think they don't support me, but we talked it out and its been diffused. I also got some fresh bananas... my roommate bought me a couple. We came up with a plan to make a meal together and I think that will be good for all of us, because they don't want to see me starve myself and I don't want to either. ;)

    Tell them how much your fruits and veggies are to your calorie intake....and that if it were anything else you wouldn't be as upset over it. Good luck with the roommates...and on you reaching your goals!

    Ugh, I hate roommates like that! I had one that would use my dishes then leave them laying around dirty all the time (and we had a dishwasher at that!). It was disgusting.

    I wouldn't care if they got upset. It's YOUR food, and that's not right for them to take it if they haven't at least asked - esp. since they don't offer in return. You have to tell them or let them continue doing it - and you told them! I'd make sure that they'd know what's mine and to leave it be! I put my stuff in a certain place in the pantry and my parents and sister know not to mess with it.

    Thanks.... some of my friends think I overreacted since they don't normally eat my stuff we kind of respect each other in that sense of things, and part of me is just in panic mode like the other commenter said... so one less banana is one less healthy thing I can look to instead of cookies or cake or whatever... they think me leaving the note is going to cause tension, but I just want them to take this as seriously as I do. emoticon

    I think if you just tell them that you are on a calorie counting program and that you rely on your fruits and veggie for your daily intake. Ask them to avoid eating your food.

    Your roommates may not think what they did was a big deal. Your note should clear that up for them. I think you did the right thing in writing it. If they still don't get it, you may have to explain further.

    Often, people who don't have weight issues have trouble grasping the fact that dieters are one "missing" healthy snack away from panic-ville. They just need to understand. Good luck on reaching your goals.

    They shouldn't get upset since they took something that wasn't their's to begin with. From now on, just in case, things that do not need to be refrigerated leave in your room. Also maybe you can label things as well so they know it's yours. Hopefully it was a mistake. Good luck!
