"I'm not on a diet."
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
I am fed up of repeating the above statement. I am not on a diet, I am making a lifestyle change.
Just because I choose not to have a doughnut or a muffin that you've brought into work, does not mean I'm on a diet. I'm making a conscious choice to eat more healthily, and just because I've refused your offer this time, does not mean that I will refuse it next time.
Just because I am having a salad for lunch, does not mean I'm on a diet. I prefer to eat fewer calories for lunch, because I prefer to have a substantial tea as it stops me snacking in the night.
Just because I am avoiding take away food does not mean I'm on a diet. I am trying to save money, so there is no point wasting money and calories on take away.
Just because I am not drinking as much, does not mean I'm on a diet. I do not like myself when I've had a drink and I'm trying to cut down on this, this does not mean that I won't be as fun so please don't try to force me to drink.
Just because I'm going the gym more often, does not mean I'm on a diet. I am trying to look after myself. I want to be healthier and happier.
I am fed up of other people trying to bring me down and make me stray from this path, I am making a choice to change my life and you cannot change that.
