"Thanks for your concern but I am the healthiest and happiest I have ever been in my life. Why are you trying to take that away from me? Why should I go back to eating foods that make me look and feel horrible? Is my diet really hurting you that bad?"
or simply, "how's your diet going" while patting their beer gut ;)
Haha, love it. Facebook is the worst, had a friend ask me not to follow that crazy banana chick the other day. Geez, as soon as you change your diet everyone around ya becomes a nutritionist! haha Thanks Rachel <3 x
Haterz gonna hate. Just ignore them and move on. You shouldn't have to waste any of your energy/worries on their issues.
Haterz gonna hate! Love that saying. Hard when its your hubbys family, but doable right?
That's the fun part about being married (sarcasm...lol)! Suddenly you are related to all these people who now <think they> have influence in your life. You're obligated to some degree to take their jabs, but don't take it personally. Hopefully in time they will see how well you are doing with your new lifestyle, quit trying to shame you, and accept you as you are. In the meantime, you might want to try to avoid too many interactions with the worst perpetrators.
Try to shame.
I feel so horrible I feel like I have such low tolerance for meat eaters that know everything they know and still do not care. People would poke fun at my vegan diet and I let it go but recently it peeves me off so bad. Someone shared on my fb wall how all the poor plants are dying because of vegans. And I could not hold my tongue anymore and went off on them. I dont know what happened to me I am just not as tolerant anymore towards meat eaters and their jabbs.
I'm glad I am not the only one out there. When they do that stuff now I am just going to completely ignore it its not worth the fight with family members. But ooh yeah I get the religious stuff too it really eats at me now
Religion? as if caring for our health, the animals and the planet should ever be compared to something as wishy washy as religion! Its so insulting. My MIL is the worst - 'you cant save all the animals' 'what about your calcium' 'ooooh your vege sausages look disgusting' etc... I just laugh, but inside Im peeved.
