Honestly people who are obsessive about eating super healthy all the time may be bordering on disordered eating. It is OK to have some "unhealthy" things sometimes. Nothing is truly unhealthy if you only eat it on occasion! It's only when the unhealthy things become the majority of what you eat that they are really that bad for you. Are you FEELING healthier and losing weight? Then what you are doing is healthy. I say prove 'em wrong. Ignore when they try to shame you for not following THEIR plan, and in the end when you've made your goals you'll have proven them their plan isn't the only one that works. You don't have to deprive yourself to be healthy.


All or nothing attitude carried me all the way to 338 pounds. It wasn't even other people's expectations that got to me - just my own very messed up brain, but I am slowly letting go and what do you know I lost some weight without being perfect. I didn't even use a food scale (the horror!) :) It gives me hope to see you overcoming this struggle. Thank you for sharing!

Wow, Linda, what a POWERFUL essay!!!!! I could NOT agree with you more!!! I was once 103 pounds overweight. How one is treated at different weights is a HUGE issue.... I once saw an interview of some famous man who was a rock star and was addicted to drugs. He got off his addiction to drugs and gained weight. He commented that being addicted to drugs, everyone treated him great, but being overweight, he was judged and treated poorly, because EVERYONE could see it.... I, too, think it's beyond interesting that, when someone's overweight, we just know that somehow they got there, but since weight doesn't instantly evaporate the moment we eat well and exercise, there's NOTHING to judge! Oftentimes, an overweight person is making MORE healthy choices than a thin person - they may be about to gain weight by their habits but be completely unaware until it suddenly starts happening.... Life is DEFINITELY about our present and future - NOT our past.... What direction are we aiming? We're on the right path!!!!!GREAT POST!!!! Best of all possible wishes to you!!!!!
