I am fucking hating telling people that I have decided on a lifestyle change...especially one that is centered around a healthier way of eating. Don't get me wrong, some people have been wonderfully supportive. And thank goodness for them.
Here's the but: there are people who, upon telling them of the changes I've made or explaining why I'm saying "no thank you" to one of my favorite treats, looks at me as if to say "of course you are, you're on a diet because you're fat." That is SO not the case. I think I'm a fucking cute fatty....and it was not easy for me to get to that point in living in this thin culture. It was not easy and it took a long goddamn time for me to love me as I am. The reason I've decided to make the changes in my eating is that I'm sick of feeling tired and old. The weight loss that has happened is a side effect of wanting to feel better. I just hate, hate and feel resentful, that some fucking people see my efforts as some attempt to conform physically to a stupid societal norm. And it makes me crazy.
Alright. I am glad I got to get that off my chest.
