She sees my summer squash and brocolli and feels the need to chime in.

Her: "Ah I buy that stuff all the time and never get around to making it and then it goes bad"

Me: chuckle "Yeah see in my house we tend to run out of vegetables before they go bad"

Her: "oh that's weird. For me I buy it and then it just seems easier not to make it. And it's only me in my house so it doesn't get eaten fast enough"

Me: laughs politely while thinking... it's a bit more weirder to buy food that you never really bother to make, you're wasting food. And when did it become "weird" to eat your vegetables everyday anyway?!?!?! And they have frozen vegetables which is perfect for a single person.

It really amazes me since starting this diet how much of a weirdo I've become for eating whole natural foods and turning them into meals at home. I used to think everyone else must've ate healthy... I keep finding that very few people actually eat this way. Everyone seems to eat convienently and can't be bothered to fix their own meals, acting like it takes hours to fix a meal. Uh... turn off the tv for an hour, that's all it takes.

I'm sorry for the negative journal posts lately... I just need to vent and get it out of my system some way. It irks me when someone comments on my weight loss or my diet and it turns into some negative thing. I don't go around throwing my diet at people, but when they ask what I'm doing to lose weight I'm happy to share. Then more often than not I get in response something that reflects their own insecurity that I've somehow touched on... they validate it by saying "it costs so much money to eat healthy" or "it takes so much time to make your own food". Those are the top 2 things I hear... doing this diet myself made me realize that these 2 excuses are bunk. I try to give suggestions to people, but they don't seem to like that lol so I've stopped trying and just deal with the frustration of hearing the excuses... knowing I'm at least making the best choices for myself. Screw what other people think, even if they think I'm weird. I'm not.

So, I apologize again for the negativity. I much prefer to be positive, I just don't like people who attempt to push others down so they can feel better about themselves and that takes me to a negative place. I have never been able to deal with that very well.
