My dealings with a friend.

I am suppose to blog about people who sabotage my weight loss.
I can think of one person in my life that does it on a regular basis. She is a very good cook and lives next door to me. We are good friends. She often invites me over to dinner and the next day I see it on the scale! She cooks with way too much oil, fries many things and cooks her veggies until they are soft and mushy. But I love her food!! And she loves to bake and cook. That is her way of showing love.
The other person I can think of is my sister in Greybull, Wyoming. Paula has the best intentions. But she is at her highest weight ever...not very heavy in my book. A size 12 is not what I call obese. She is a wonderful cook. She cooks everything from scratch. It is wonderful to go to her home. Thankfully I am not able to go very often. Don't get me wrong. I love her very much!! And my bil is great, too. I would gain weight if I lived any closer. I just love her food too much!!
I don't cook a lot from scratch. I live alone and it is hard to make a regular size meal and then have to eat it for days or freeze it and never want to take it out of the freezer. I don't have any foods I have eliminated. I eat what I want in smaller portions. It works for me. I still have room for dark Chocolate and non-fat candy in my lifestyle. I just don't eat much of it and only if I have calories left to eat it.
I guess I have it pretty much under control. When I stick to my portion sizes I do better. I need to watch it at my neighbors/friends home. And when I visit my sister.
Maybe next time I go to Paula's I can ask her to go for a short walk. She loves to walk and I might even be able to make it for 30 minutes by the time I go down there next time!!
Well, not sure I worked anything out in my blog. It does give me two people to think about and about what to do when I eat with them!! Give it up...no way!
