friend shaming ....is that friendly??
Sunday, April 04, 2021
A friend of mine posted a recipe of sorts of baked pineapple drizzled with a little spoon of honey for flavor as a snack.
A friend of hers commented about how high the carbs would be and that she was supposed to be doing low carb. This other person went on to brag about the weight she has lost and how the friend was falling behind.
Is this motivation??
Is this encouragement?
Body shaming, food shaming, shaming someone for whatever reason equals getting results????
Mostly it makes the person feel so bad about themselves they end up failing because they feel like they already have.
I have nothing against keto, I did it myself for awhile....but I love oranges and milk so it didnt last.
Low carb I still practice as much as possible.
But I found that keto was too restrictive.
I am NOT shaming anyone who does keto. It is a great plan if you want to go that way.
Personally I love a couple of pineapple chunks in my salad.
It is what it is whatever you want to make it.....
But make it about YOUR health and happiness....not to be better or stronger or more committed than someone else.
At the moment, my biggest issue is lowering my cholesterol which is higher than it should be and I do NOT want to go on a statin.
So this is my focus for now.
Eating foods that will not contribute to my cholesterol rising, reducing stress, adding exercise and trying to just enjoy life without the shaming of others who must not be enjoying theirs enough.
