"Why are you eating that?! Oh my god you’re going to ruin your whole diet and gain back the weight you lost."
"You haven’t been to the gym in so long and you used to try and go every day, wow you are slacking. Don’t gain back the weight!"
"You had a brownie for a breakfast?! What is your life…"
These are just some of the comments I hear every day. Yes, lately I have been off the wagon and not eating as healthy as I can and no, I haven’t been exercising.
It’s not that I’m lazy or have lost motivation, it’s just, well…. I’M LIVING MY LIFE.
No one is going to be perfect. We all have bad days. We all have days where we eat 3500 calories and drink too much wine and lay on the couch for 6 hours straight. That means I’M HUMAN.
The comments don’t really bother me. I’m losing weight for me and no one else. But people seem to make my weight loss their personal business and act shocked or disgusting or surprised when I’m not 100% perfect. And it’s weird because I have accepted that I’m never going to be 100%. Ever.
I am human. I will always want brownies and sugar and wine and pizza. But for the last few months I have been really strict and just feel like I need a break. The good news here is that I have maintained my weight and haven’t gained anything.
If someone can eat junk while maintaining control and not going overboard, I don’t see why others feel the need to comment or judge. Like, I’m just living. Let me live…. with pizza.
