I’m not asking for someone to be completely on board with me, but you’d think that your own family would understand when you’re on a diet that it’s hard when you’re being constantly tempted and surrounded by things that just aren’t good for you. Their compromise for not eating late (9/10ish)? We’ll go get In ‘n’ Out and you can just make something now. So now I’m left at home, to feel fat, and yearn for In ‘n’ Out while I make my lean cuisine meal and they go have a jolly ol’ time eating Double Double’s with Fries that I practically teared up in want for… Real supportive…

I’ll walk/jog around the block to blow of some steam here soon but… really? No wonder I hate coming home for breaks.


Happy freakin’ St. Patty’s Day.

  1. I’m sorry you had to deal with that. 🙁 My family is supportive so that’s not an issue, the issue was, they just don’t GET it. They would SAY they wanted to be supportive and they would SAY nice things, and then they would drag in pizza and donuts and eat it in front of me! At some point, I had to say to myself, that pizza will be there in a few months when my body is healthier and I will have it in moderation. Well, I don’t live there anymore and when I visit, I have control over myself so it’s easier. From what you said, I’m guessing you’re home for Spring Break. Just push through this week and once you are back in your routine, it will be MUCH easier. You know what you need to do, so just do it and remind yourself that in the future, you will be able to have those things in moderation. I wish I could say that talking to your family will help, but I just don’t know if it will. Because like I said, they may love you and SAY they will try, but most of the time they just don’t get where we’re coming from. Good luck, don’t give up, and post often if it helps you to stay on track!

  2. Thanks Jewlz, that actually helps ease my mind a lot. I am home on Spring Break, and I go back in a couple days. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one taken in by the food the family eats around you. I know they care, it’s just tough.

    And I will keep posting, it definitely helps a great deal. 🙂
