Eating to spare someone's feelings is hurting me !

Saturday, May 30, 2015

A new friend likes to make food for me. Unfortunately she fails to acknowledge that I had just eaten my meal & am stuffed. I don't want to hurt her feelings but I really don't need to eat 2 meals in a row. I have to wrap up the second meal for another time. emoticon emoticon

    Part of take a friendship from "new" to really being friends is getting to know each other's quirks, habits, likes, and dislikes. If you can gently teach her about your eating habits and needs she should be willing to adapt. But she needs to be taught! And if she is not willing to learn and be supportive you will have the adjust the friendship accordingly.

    That's a hard situation but I think you just need to be upfront with her

    Just TELL her you are on a weight loss and clean eating journey.

    You will have to risk hurting her feelings in the short term and tell her what's going on. If yo let it go on too long, she will really be hurt when you don't eat her cooking. There may be some way you can share cooking, she gets the odd days and you get the even ones. emoticon

    Some people don't realize they are sabotaging your goals, but some do, you need to find good excuses or talk to her about what you are trying to do.
