Eat Me! wk 9

So some people just can't seem to be happy or excited for other people when they're trying so so SO very hard to do something positive with their lives.
In the past i would let this derail me - this time? I'm laughing all the way to the scales.
I went to the store with a 'friend' last week to get lunch.
I grabbed up a salad wrap and she grabbed up these disgustingly huge cheese buns. I've never had a cheese bun but my understanding is that its dough rolled with cheese and baked and topped with more cheese.
Basically a heartattack roll. She bought three of em.
She kept lingering by the dessert thingy (WOW did they look good)
Kept begging me to get something.
Mind you it was TOM so i was craving something wicked.
She motioned to the chocolate shelves and she begged me to have something she said she was buying me chocolate and i could pick out whatever i want - she even went so far as to pull expensive chocolates off the shelf and try to hand it to me.
I refused but i calculated the points for two small chocolate chip cookies and bought those.
I swear it seemed like she grew fangs and salivated as i ate the cookies.
I offered her one and she said no no NOO YOUUU EAT IT.
She was leering almost saying in her head 'yeeaaaass eaaat thoseee coookieess'
It really weirded me out. I'm never going to eat anything 'undesirable' in front of her again i shouldn't have had the cookies in front of her either.
If anything, her behavior makes me want to do this even more.
So to all the saboteurs out there - we're not interested.
Shoo fly.

People who get all upset when people get healthier, thinner, curvier than them are sad. There will always be someone thinner, fatter, than me. I want to have kindness.
I also hate to eat what I don’t want to eat. Yes I still eat cookies. I just make healthier ones or plan ones with my points.

PS next time she does that think of my cookies the ones that were bready, sour and slimy all at once

I know someone like that, but not so obvious. She seems like the type of person you should avoid.

"Friends" like that really seem like enemies at times. It's like they want you to fail because they have some competitive feelings or maybe they don't want you to change. Who knows. But you saw it for what it was, and did not let it ruin your motivation. Hooray for you!

I have to deal with this every Monday at work, but my friend isn't creepy. She doesn't think I need to watch what I eat, and wants me to eat the same crap she is. I am learning to deal and approach things differently, so she doesn't feel awkward I dunno. That's not the word. Anyway I hear you.

That's not a friend - no way. Especially if she wants you to fail!

Sorry you had such a bad experience.

I agree with the ladies above me. She does sound strange.

Some people really like to drag people down with them. I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

Hi! I am a big believer in just doing something for you...and then it is easier to not let other people bother you.

And..I always try to put myself in that negative person's shoes. Hell...I have been that person. There have been times when I haven't been working out/eating healthy...and the green eyes monster came out. It was all my issue...but unfortunately, I would enjoy seeing other people slip up....because then it made me somehow feel better. someone does that to me...I know it isn't about me and hope that maybe they will grow as I did...and get the help they need.

Great post! I have had people try to shove food at me more times than I can count. But it seems that they can read how dedicated and motivated I am because when I was really on a roll(no pun intended)with my weight loss, the people in my life have respected it and didn't try to encourage me to eat something I shouldn't. When I was personally wavering and not 100% commited is when they would jump in and try to get me to eat something. Soooo....I have to wonder, maybe my motivation altered my perception of how the people around me behaved. When I was weak, I caved in...when I was strong, I inwardly said, "Go to hell, I'm not eating it!" I think people can sense how we are doing. Of course there are the people that get insanely jealous when another person loses weight(sounds like the lady you described) and they don't seem to stop at anything and try to throw constant roadblocks our way. I guess we have to remember that we are in control of what we do, even if we have to say, "No thankyou..I don't want it." ten times!

I will never understand why it is so hard for people to understand that we can't eat those things. Saying no 10 times doesn't usually help.

I wonder why is it that women behave this way with other women? Why is it that so few women can be supportive of other people's lifestyle changes?? I do not get it!! I just wish that I understood why we can't encourage eachother. I guess that is why we have blogs in cyberculture so that we can find like minded people!

Good attitude and just spot the friends that behave this way and go for coffee dates instead of eating ones!

It's no fun dealing with people like that.
You calculated your points for the cookies, so the joke is on her.
Good job keeping a level head. (o;

I honestly think that people who push you (and I) to eat things we shouldn't are actually feeling bad about their own aating habits and weight.

I have had this happen so much and it is so hard to fight. But boy do I feel proud when I get past it and I won that little battle.

Thanks for the tips on my blog, I have the dining out guide and I use it quite often. The main issue that I have with Pizza is you can't just buy one slice. My DH doesn't like pizza that much, so I can't even get him to eat it all.
I don't deprive myself too much, I don't think I am worried about binging I do have a lot of things most people shouldn't have on "diets" but I run into issues because now that I swim so much I get so hungry. Because I am so hungry I have to use my points more wisely. In the begining I wasn't using my flex or work out points. Now I use some flex points and almost all of my work out points. (I usually would earn about 12 a day but only count 4)
Thanks for the tips on cake, I have the same issue about having so much cake and DH really won't eat sweets, but for some reason it is easier for me to throw away cake then pizza.

Thanks again!
