Is it Just Me?

When people realize  you are choosing a more healthy lifestyle is it just me but  people tend to be more critical of your every move or maybe it’s just me?

This is the season where  I go to parties or public events more frequently. I feel like if that day is my day to indulge I should announce it to avoid the “supposed looks” I will receive when I pick up a roll of bread or load up on the pasta.

The truth is that it’s not easy and yes there will be days I indulge when I shouldn’t but those eyeballs make me feel so guilty and so judged!!!! But funny thing is in most cases no one is looking at you, you are looking at you!   I am finally starting to understand how much control I have given food over my life. It has so much control that I feel bad, guilty and judged when I eat it. In the world we live there are lots of types of foods that are bad for you or will impact your body but the end decision is yours. If you  are eating something “bad” accept it and move on. Easier said than done for me. Either way challenging myself to not beat myself up, but rather remember everything in moderation and accept my food choices as is. It has no longer become about lingering  on what I have already done or eaten for me and more about moving forward and making the right food choices for me with  a few indulges here and there 🙂

  1. It may not be just you, especially if you share your intention to begin making healthier food choices. We know that some people can be very critical. In my opinion, that’s because we are mirrors for others. If you say you are going to do something that someone else has had trouble adopting, they will start to monitor you just so they can find a flaw in your plan. This makes them feel better about the struggle they are having. They will ask you how long you’ve been attempting to make this change, and how far you have gone on your journey. Don’t be stumbled by this. Continue to do what is your highest and best. Remember, that you are human, so occasionally you may take a step back. Thankfully, you have two feet with which to take a step forward as well. I’ve heard it called: “Failing Forward.” Enjoy your holidays for your self, and do the best you can sticking to your initial plan to eat healthier. This may not happen overnight. You may have to take small steps forward. And that’s OK. You are taking steps. That’s the main thing. Do this with confidence, discipline, and a smile on your face; especially when you have proven to yourself that you have the super power to make it so one day at a time…then permanently. Happy Holidays!!!
