I can have a sugar cookie, OK?

I'm about to commit the cardinal sin of blogging ... doing so while I'm a little miffed. I'm doing it anyway! ...

Please, please, please, people: STOP TELLING ME WHAT I CAN AND CAN'T EAT! Just please, OK? I so appreciate the concern. Really sweet. Seriously. But AND a food journal AND a trainer AND the knowledge I have gained the past four months are the sources I use to tell me what I can have.

"Are you eating Chipotle? Can you have that?" YES. A bowl with rice, chicken and any kind of salsa is fine. It's less than 500 calories, and as long as I come in under my calories and fat requirements for the day, I'm good to go.

"Don't do it ... Don't take that sugar cookie." You know what? Once in a while, I can have a cookie. It's 180 calories. If I choose to spend them that way, then I just have to eat less at dinner, OK?

I publically blog about weight loss. I get it. But that doesn't entitle anyone to management duty over my food intake. Gee whiz ...

For those of you saying, "Anything in moderation, honey. Have that cookie and eat it, too," seriously, bless you. I heart you.

  1. People seem to know what is best for us, right? I think some people only want to try to help, but sometimes they seem intruding or just sometimes come off rude and they may not even realize it.

    You know yourself the best and you know what you are doing for your program/lifestyle. It is obviously working for you!

    If you really want a cookie, than have it. What is it to everyone? I know you are blogging about your weight loss and I think that is great! I think maybe some people are reading too much into it. You won't gain weight if you have a small treat everyday. It is called moderation. Moderation to everyone is different. You know yourself the best! :)

    I started doing recently and I love it! It is great way to break everything down. It has been helpful for me too!

    Keep up the good work! Do what makes you happy! :)
