People who know me, know I'm into eating healthy. I won't eat everything they eat. However, I try not to drive others crazy. I'm strict at home, but bend the rules when I'm invited to someone's home for a meal or when I go out to eat. I won't eat total junk, but I can usually find something that's sort of ok. I try not to make a big deal about it, not to preach, though I'm so excited about how my own problems have disappeared that I do sometimes talk about it if the conversation goes that way.
It's happened quite a few times that I've been with people, not said one word about their choices, and had the feeling that my friends feel judged. Recently attended a public event. I ate before I went, knowing there were awful hotdogs and baked fries offerred. I just had some wine. My friends said stuff like "you wouldn't eat this, would you?" They felt they should apologise for digging in. I never asked them to eat what I eat (or not eat what I pass over).
On the other hand, they are complaining about weight gain and other, sometimes serious medical issues. Um... er... no comment.
I seem to be a walking reminder of what they feel they should be doing, but aren't. Sigh.
Anyone else feel this way? Any way to avoid it?
