Video: Pudy

I mention this in the video, but it's worth saying again: I miss writing. It's just another part of my regular routine that I'm totally aching for. Video blogs are good, I guess, but not exclusively. I'll be writing tomorrow for my weigh in, for sure. Guaranteed plenty to say about that this week.

Yesterday was another tough day, though in completely different ways than the day before. This one was tough with regards to eating decisions - definitely something I'm going to hash out in writing in detail next week once Mom leaves. *sigh*



What about you? Are there any "food pushers" in your life - folks who urge you to try just a bite of this, a taste of that, and only one of these won't kill you? How do you deal with them?

As always, LOVED your vlog! <3

I can so relate to what you said about people messing with your schedule and plans. I had my best friend over for a few days two weeks ago and it completely messed with my head. I didn't stick to my plan, I ate terribly etc.

It's SO much easier when it's just me. I guess we both have to learn how to do our best with people around :) Have a nice day, hun!

i tell them to respect my choices if they want to continue seeing me, otherwise for my own good my time with them will be limited to NON eating venues/occasions. and yes that includes family i let too many people hold me back for far too long. if they love you they'll understand and try to help you!

I think the best strategy is to own it. No, I'm not eating that. Yup, I'm on a diet, and it's working.

There's two types of food pushers, IMO. Those that mean well, and those that are out for sabotage. The ones that mean well will let you be, and the sabotagers...well, I think there comes a time when you have to limit that presence in your life.

I live with my thin 30 year old daughter who mainly subsists on junk food. Having all that "stuff" around is HARD for me. We had a conversation about it yesterday and she agreed to move the treats back to her room. Yep, I'm an adult and I make my choices but I'm not strong around so much temptation. I'm looking forward to your next written post. :)

I agree with the comment about the two types of food pushers. Luckily most of my food pushers are the ones that mean well. My mom and dad are definitely food pushers with me. I think they feel that if I am not eating what they are eating that I am depriving myself and that makes them feel bad/sad/guilty/whatever. But I've managed to hold pretty firm with them throughout all of this and they are learning. Painfully slowly, but learning.

One of the hardest parts about losing weight is being around other people who are NOT trying to lose weight. I've always had to deal with those kinds of people who try to get you to go off track, and I'm not sure why they always feel the need to pressure me. Sometimes, I cave. But sometimes, I politely say "no thanks, I'm really on a roll right now and I'd appreciate it if you didn't make this harder than it alreayd is." Usually, they get the hint.
