Fooling Yourself

There is a woman that I know who is totally osbessed with weight. Hers, others and it is talk, talk, talk. She is always talking about how big someones butt looks and how much food people have on their plates and on and on. She is always talking about calories and sodium and looking at labels for herself. I gets old and wears on my nerves.

Yet, she is alwasy eating candy, chocolate, brownies, trail mix with candy in it, icecream, frozen yougurt fooling herself that it has less calories than icecream. It is a joke. She is always talking about wanting to loose weight but she is constantly eating. Eating and eating. She is only fooling herself. I have begun to tell her that she is only eating junk food and that she eats too much of it. Nothing is ever said about that. She complains about how she looks in her clothes. I tell her to stop eating the cake and brownies. Nothing happens.

My thing is , eat if you are going to eat. But don't talk about how much everyone else has or is eating when you are eating more all day than anyone else. Don't walk around the grocery store reading calories on labels with a cart full of cookies and icecream and yougurt or trail mix that is 50% m&M's. It gets on my nerves. It is tiring to hear it over and over. Stop fooling yourself into thinking you are going to loose weight eating like that. Or fit into your clothes. I just get sick of hearing it.

You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
