Why are there so many people who do not support those of us who are trying to work towards living a healthy lifestyle?? It's almost as if people who want to be healthy are committing a subversive act by taking care of ourselves.
The other day I met with a textbook publisher and she brought a bunch of muffins from Starbucks. She also brought all these creamy drinks that I don't even know the names of. Throughout the entire meeting she kept badgering me to eat the muffins and drink the drinks.
I repeatedly told her, "No thank you, I am trying to cut back on my sugar".
She kept telling me, "But the muffins don't have much sugar".
Then I started telling her, "I am starting to watch what I am eating and am trying to eat in a healthy way".
She countered with, "But the muffins are good for you".
She continued pressing and pressing me. I was almost at my wits end and was just about to lose my temper.
I finally said, "I am just trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetable. No thank you".
And she said, "But the muffins have fruit. Don't you see the blueberries?"
I finally got a little assertive and told her to back off.
What is wrong with people? Why has this been happening lately? Why is it that when I am eating my veggies and beans in front of co-workers that they have to sit there and tell me that I am hurting myself by not eating meat?
I'm convinced that so many people out there, even the little skinny ones, are really not healthy and they try to sabotage people who try to be more healthy. Geez
