"No one will ever care as much about your diet plan as YOU. So it's YOUR job to prevent people or events from pulling you off track." ~ Linda Spangle 100 Days of Weight Loss
Instead of depending on others to help you be successful with your diet, make a commitment that you will protect your program at all costs!
All of us have been through a lot this time of year. Whether it be dinner parties, friends and get togethers, work treats being brought into the office. We've been tempted, we've been pressured or just down right scorned from not trying any of the food.
Linda Spangle in Day 6 recommends that the best way to brush off the "food pusher" is to say when someone asks you to eat "not right now, maybe later." I can see how that would work. She also says not to discuss your diet plan with anyone, in situations like get togethers and parties the last thing they want is to feel "guilty" for eating something so if you discuss your diet they might push pack and in the end you might feel beat down and discouraged and go ahead and partake with them.
For me I don't work that way. I am strong and will tell you "bug off its not worth the poison it gives" or "mind your own business". I can get out of situations with no problems now after 4 years of doing it. I run into problems when I go home and then I want to eat in secret.
....nothing is worth going off your program and she's right!
