"Are you still on that diet?"
I don't know how many times I hear from co-workers and friends "Are you still on that crazy diet?"
"What crazy diet? Oh, you mean the one where I eat healthy veggies, low fat cheeses and meat, whole grains, beans and fresh fruit? That crazy diet? The one where I lost 40 pounds and have kept it off for the last 2 years? Well, yes, I'll always be on this because I've permantly changed my eating habits. To go off it means returning to the way I ate before that caused me to put on all the weight and my high blood pressure."
Do you get these silly comments?
