     Okay, so I'm sorry for yet another post about weight, but after all, this is my blog.  Since I have been following the advice of my physiology of nutrition class and eating a lot healthier, people have been driving me crazy.  I mean, I don't mind that people mention when they've noticed that I've lost weight, but what really gets me is when they have to remark about what I am eating.  I am getting tired of people putting in their two cents at every meal, or making some snide remark about "oh that's all you are going to eat?"  I am tired of all of the negative attention because it is making me feel like I am doing something wrong, which I am not.  I probably know more about nutrition than any one of them, and I am simply following what I have learned in my nutrition class, which is taught by very prestigious doctors at the UCLA Center for Nutrition.  I am not being unhealthy (i.e. anorexic or bulimic) so I would really appreciate it if people would mind their own business about what I eat.
      Excuse me for wanting to change my life so that I am less at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease, the latter of which is the number one killer in our country.  These diseases are preventable, and I just because everyone else would rather remain ignorant about their lifestyles, does not mean that they can judge me for choosing mine.  I don't give a fuck what other people are eating... if they want to eat 3000 calories per day of a high fat and sugar diet, be my guest.  But I would appreciate it if people would stop looking at me like I am anorexic every time I eat a salad and fruit instead of lasagna.  I'm tired of feeling like I have to defend myself at every meal.  This has been going on for quite some time now, and today I just snapped.  I know what I am doing is right so I'm going to just keep on doing it.  That is all.


  1. :( i eat terribly myself, but i don't judge people who actually eat healthily, in fact i envy their drive and willpower. i wish i could get myself to not eat 2 brownies and a fatass plate of pasta. don't let the haters get you down!

  2. Thanks... I totally don't care what other people eat either, so it just drives me nuts when people are just all up in my business. I just want to be left alone to eat however I want :P

  3. I meant to comment on this before but forgot. Seriously, like Hayley said, screw other people! It's obvious that you're not starving yourself, and if you've been able to figure out what your body can healthily process on a daily basis and it (unfortunately) doesn't include piles of bacon, good for you!

    People need to stop judging what others eat by how much they are able to eat based on their personal metabolisms, and not only that, but I think more people need to do what you have done to begin with and evaluate their health beyond BMI. There is a silent problem of "hidden obesity" where people eat crap food and because they're genetically blessed, they don't gain weight - but that doesn't mean they're not putting still putting themselves at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease (I've been totally guilty of this.)

    So yeah, you keep on keepin' on. You looked great at the alum tea and if you're feeling happy and healthy that's what matters.
