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.
