S/C/G: Lost 50 lbs, regained some

Height: 5'3"


junebug41, I don't know. I've seen lots of women get together in pairs or small groups and play this "Let's be naughty girls and eat all this bad food" game. And often I suspect they talk about each other behind their backs. So it's no fun if suddenly someone says "No, I'm not going to do that."

Also, it seems like some women play a "diet game" by which they complain how fat they are, then all go on diets, then all give each other permission to go off their diets. And around it goes.

I don't believe in telling others about being on a weight loss plan unless they notice I've lost weight and are sincerely interested. I turn down food with a simple "No, thanks" and a smile. If someone gets pushy, I turn it around on them: "Why are you so interested in seeing me eat this?" That usually ends the conversation--and if not, it becomes a different conversation!
