Slender people...have any overweight people who wanted to lose weight ever asked you what you eat during a regular day, and then tried to copy that?
With the exception of a brief period, after my son was born 24 years ago, I have always been slender. I blossomed after he was born. I needed to lose about 40 pounds, and I got with my sister, The Queen of Dieters. First thing she said was “There is no such thing as baby fat. You’ve started eating differently since he was born.”... and she was right. She coached me through, taught me how to count calories and I lost that 40 pounds in about six months by changing my eating habits to more resemble hers and I’ve never had to look back.
I’ve known lots of overweight….obese….people in my life. They’re forever going “on diets,” which they, of course, go “off” of, but not one has ever asked, as a serious question, how I stay so thin. Not one has asked, “Tell me what you’ve had to eat so far today,” or “What all did you eat yesterday?”
I guess…if I was overweight and I had the opportunity to get with someone about the same height as me, but slender, I’d glom on to them until I got used to their eating habits. Well….and I did just that when I wanted to lose that weight.
In all these years, why has no one ever asked? Slender people…has anyone ever asked you about your eating habits?
