Lately there are a lot of things which really piss me off mostly coming from my family and even from some random people.
May I remind you I am not a nutritionist, I didn’t study about diets or what’s healthy or not but I know most of the things from experience. I may not always eat healthy food but I eat what I find to be best for me. I know many of you might want to tell me, what food I should eat or not but I honestly don’t want to know. Unless you are willing to live 24hrs with me, buy food and cook for me. I eat what’s best for me and what I have available on that day.
I get this “know it all” attitude, mostly from my family. Yesterday I got home after a long day at work and all they made at home was a mixture of veggies, that I don’t like. I like most of the veggies but I hate the green peppers and cucumbers. So Instead I cooked a focaccia which is an italian like of pita bread with some veggies and tuna. It may not be as healthy as the veggies they cooked but it was still a bit healthy. My mum (like she always does) she tried to make me feel bad for not eating what she cooked and started saying that I won’t loose weight with the food I am eating (which in reality I did ). I was very pissed with her, but I got to get used to my mothers comments, so I told her to mind her business. I might have had something which isn’t as healthy as her meal, but at least I didn’t have the piece of chocolate cake she had after her meal.
If you have an irritating family, friends or colleagues which love to give diet suggestions and tell you what to do. Tell them nicely, that even if you think it’s nice that they care about you, you would appreciate if they just minded their own business. You have to grow a thick skin when you are trying to loose weight because everyone loves to get into your business and tell you what to do. Which at times may not be what you really need to hear.
I also talked to an old friend from school about a month ago, she read my blog and she told me that she didn’t know that I was struggling with my weight, because I always put on a happy face. Why should I be always sad because I am fat?.What bothered me the most is that she started telling me what I should eat and what I shouldn’t. Even I know she wanted to help me, but I honestly didn’t care because I know what is good for me and what isn’t and If I don’t know, the scale will tell me.
So thank you all of you for your help and support but limit your comments about what you think about my food intake. If you have any recipes to give me I will be more than happy to know your ideas. The main reason for this blog is to help myself. I blog because it helps me to remain motivated and determined to loose weight. I don’t blog to inspire anyone or help anyone with my blog. I honestly never thought anyone would know about this blog and would want to read it. But here I am with over 50 followers which is still awesome.
Thank you again guys and I hope you understand the meaning of this post. Love yah
