    Coffeeandshoes got a reaction from Alix B. in The crazy things people say   
    My mom and I were driving around. She wanted a Dairy Queen Blizzard, she's 78 and never had one. I said sure, and we drove to Dairy Queen. When we drove up I said. "Now I can't have one, I can't have dairy or sugar right now I'm doing an allergy testing thing and I have three more days." She sighed and said, "well is it working?" and gave me "the look." (the "are you losing weight" look) I said as cheerful as I could, "YES, just look at my skin and I don't hurt when I wake up in the morning." She paused and looked confused. --- we are never too old to learn that the size of our butt isn't the most important thing in the world..

    Coffeeandshoes reacted to GLC1968 in Can I have anything at panera bread?   
    For all those who don't know, Panera now has a 'Hidden Menu' with two breakfast and 4 lunch/dinner bowls that have zero bread or cheese involved!! The best part is that the salads are topped with lemon juice and EVOO!!
    Here is info on their website about it:

    Terez, I love that you keep asking why. Asking why and confronting what I perceived to be inconsistencies is what secured me a spot as a Whole9 Envoy, forum moderator, and even editor of ISWF. That and working for the joy of a good cause.

    I just find the whole concept of ANYONE commenting on my food, life choices or decisions ALWAYS just plain rude.
    I do not, HAVE NOT, and WILL NOT ever feel the need to make a comment about a person's decisions - food or otherwise
    What is it with people who don't have a "basic courtesy valve" in their mouth..there are plenty of them
    I actually see it as more a case of them feeling attacked for what I have chosen to put on my plate - like it somehow reflects badly on them, therefore they feel the need to lash out with a statement that backs up their position.
    If anything, it makes me more determined - I sit there silently losing weight, gaining control over my eating while they plunge headfirst into the abyss..enjoy the trip, peeps!!!

    "Fruit will make you fat" - a fat coworker who doesn't eat fruit.
    "I could never eat as much as you" - a fat coworker who eats lean cuisine every day
    "How do you eat so much chocolate and stay so fit?" - random coworker
    and my favorite..."that's the biggest salad I've ever seen"

    I dislike it when people say "I'm not eating carbs" while really meaning grains. Vegetables and fruits are carbs too!
