*hugs* Good luck, it's hard to watch people you care about making stupid choices. I hope eventually they have a wake up call and try your path. :)
Has anyone just considered breaking out into hysterical laughter when people say these things?
"But Brian, you have to get your protein from some where".
I haven't had any backlash yet.... I'm new to this. I hope you get real friends that are more supportive of your choices.
Keep up the good work!
Something that happened to me recently that really ticked me off was that my friend took an oreo cookie and shoved it right into my mouth while I was talking to some one else. She knows how serous I've been taking 80/10/10, but felt the need to show me that 1 cookie would not hurt. I got so mad at her and told her that's where she was wrong. I said to her "Do you know how long its going to take that cookie to come out the other end? Do you know how hard my body has to work to push that crap through my system? I was doing so well and now you set me back about a week." She felt really bad after wards. I was so mad that I didn't speak to her for the rest of the day. Although she made it out to be a joke, I felt that it was disrespectful to my beliefs.
the other day a co-worker just came out of nowhere and asked how my BMs were (of course she didnt use such nice terminology). i told her they were awesome lol and i meant it
My ex-landlord, upon hearing that I went raw, asked me "How are your bathroom breaks?" with this crazy grin on his face like he expected me to say terrible diarrhea or something.
lol You should say "How are your bathroom breaks?"..."Oh yeah, you don't have any."
hahaha, or bring here your nice smelly one to compare with hers:D... and say: oh yeah, now I dont find you nice smell as I was before...
