    Kate C Mayone got a reaction from MeadowLily in The crazy things people say   
     
     
    Hahaha - The first thing my sister said to me... "Wait, you're not drinking??  For 30 DAYS??  That's the worst thing I've ever heard".  We had this conversation on a Monday morning no less when she was already counting down her days to the weekend where she can 'cheat'.  She is respectful of my food choices and gives me a lot of credit which is why I love her so much.  Still it's funny how different yet similar we are...she's actually my motivation to make better healthier choices.  She says the only way she couldn't drink for that long was if she was pregnant.  Crazy what people will do for someone else but not themselves

    This has happened to me today, I posted in my log, however I feel like sharing in this thread too
    I love liver and all organ meats. I am walking down the aisles of the organic store. I see this pack and get all excited.

    Conversation while paying. Cashier: "Oh your dog is gonna love them!" Me:" I don't have a dog". Akward silence. I stare at the pack. It's a dog treat. Facepalm.

    Yesterday I was filling out the paperwork for a new doctor (I'm seeing an oral surgeon next week). One of the questions was "are you on a diet?". Am I on a diet? What kind of question is that?...and from a doctor's office, no less! I mean, had they asked 'do you have any dietary restrictions?' I would understand it. Way to perpetuate the 'diet' mentality...
    I answered 'no' by the way because I am making the assumption they mean "are you eating in a certain way, temporarily" and I'm not, but really, anyone eating food is on a 'diet'. I can't wait to point it out to them when I go into the office next week. Yes, I'm going to be 'that' person.

    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!!!

    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."
