Some people

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Okay so I love this site and all the support that I get from you guys. I mean it's the best! But one thing that I'm not crazy about is I think some people out there who have lost the weight are a little judgemental and I don't think they mean to be , I think they are truly trying to help. But I don't want to put on something like "I had a wonderful dinner out with the hubby and my boys, we had Italian" because I know that someone out there is going to say something that will make me feel guilty and it will ruin my wonderful evening. Don't get me wrong I'm trying to lose weight. I have made some big changes I workout everyday which I didn't workout at all before, I track everything that goes in my mouth and I always stay at around 1300 calories but I'm not going to deprive myself of a night out and then have someone make me feel guilty about it. Like I said I know they are trying to help and I know they mean well but I think that they need to remember when they hadn't lost the weight and we're still trying that they too made mistakes Noone and I mean Noone is perfect! That's all I have to say

    There is nothing wrong with posting something like that. I know some people think it is wrong to talk about yummy foods because it might be a trigger for them (that is old OA kind of philosophy), but I know we have to live and enjoy food. I pretty much eat what I wanted in moderation and exercised a lot and lost nearly 50 pounds in five months. I was eating hot dogs, lasagna, and other stuff but still watching portions and not overdoing sweets etc. Everyone is doing this at our own pace and we will find out what works. I have had people say things like that too, but I am doing what I need to do slowly and successfully.

    In fact, someone else recommended having cinnamon with coffee and I love it! I now brew cinn. with my coffee and use 2 T a day. I used to use about 18 T each day! Keep focusing on the positive; you are doing great! (-:

    I understand what you are saying, but I still think the majority of comments are very encouraging! To be honest, when I first started here, I did feel stupid over a comment about the coffee creamer I was having, but decided not to let it get me down!

    I used to be upset every time that happened too. Now I just dismiss that kind of comments, I know they are well-meaning but I need balance in my life, and that means not every meal I have is going to be healthy. I eat by the 80/20 rule, and if that bothers anyone it's their business not mine. I take what is useful for me!

    If you do not enjoy life along the way you will not be a success story

    you are so right no one is perfect you have to live every now and then trust me i may have lost 41 pound still have more to go but i ate some sweets and i had pizza and spaghetti i just worked it all in to my calorie goals and sometimes its ok to go over sometimes your body needs to be shocked into losing again because after a while losing it slows down ps sometimes people are mean on here i deletted one so far and her comments lol its that simple emoticon

    If you are loving a healthy lifestyle, that means you can enjoy whatever food you choose.

    You are not alone. I also refuse to deprive my self. Going out to eat is a normal part of life. It is your blog put what you want. Then delete all the comments you don't like
