No Significant Other here!

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

At least not a husband or a boyfriend yet, but one can dream. However, I do have a very best friend who I spend at least a good portion of my free time with every week, so I am going to say she qualifies as being the closest thing to a significant other I have.
Sometimes she can send me really confusing messages. At times she will even tell me that I need to loose weight, but then want to stop at a bakery for a small sweet. Also, when I go to her house for dinner and she has fixed something I am trying to avoid eating she will act offended if I don't want to eat it. In other words if she doesn't want it or think it is good for you, then she is against it, opposite of if she wants it then it is good! LOL!
I was reluctant to discuss my dietary plans, especially my decision to avoid eating meat, however recently her son, a vegetarian, decided to help her out with her health issues and become her nutritionist, so maybe we can now both be on the same page or at least in the same book. When you have someone you spend a lot of time with and share meals with, you have to stand your ground about what you are trying to achieve.

    I think BEST friends should be able to support each other but it isn't always that way, I've found. Getting the son involved is really a great idea!! Let him 'assist' both of you so you become united in the quest. State your preferences & get him work around them. I takes courage to stand up for what you want - don't I know that!!! - but it's worth it in the end.
