I wrote this post a few months ago for a website on yahoo! And I received various responses from “Yes, it bothers me” to “No way, I do the same thing.” And now I’d like to hear what my new friends here have to say.
I am definitely guilty of obsessing over eating well and exercising. For the last month, I have been fully aware of everything I’ve put in my mouth. And I don’t really have plans to stop.
Someone recently said that if you want to get healthy then it has to be the most important thing you do. I’m trying, and I am determined. But I think I should find a balance between deliberate and annoying friends by constantly thinking about my own weight loss.
My friends have been so good about it, and I’m very thankful. But I was thinking about how sometimes people think they’re the authority on a subject then they drive people nuts, offering unsolicited knowledge on the topic. And I do not want to become that person.
I am certainly not an expert, and I will not tell anyone else what to eat or how to exercise. But should I try to keep a lid on my own objectives as well? Or is it okay to be outwardly excited about the transformation I’m making in my own habits?
