Is it just me or is it really annoying to have to answer to people about why you’re doing the things your doing? Like, when I go get lunch with people and they find it necessary to ask why I don’t want the bread and why I ask about if there’s sugar in something.

Look, I’m a fat girl asking about nutrition data. Is it really difficult to deduce that I’m trying to lose weight?

I get that when people see me not drinking they wonder a little bit, “hmm… might she be pregnant?” considering that I also have more color in my face than normal and kind of have what people interpret as a pregnancy glow going on. It also doesn’t help that I replaced a few of my old bras so adding a slight change in how my boobs look above everything else really makes people start to wonder.

For the last time, I’m not pregnant.

Why is it, though, that I’m so reluctant to discuss my weight loss in general? I don’t like to tell people why I’m not joining in and eating the peach cobbler. I don’t like to admit that I’ve lost 75lbs. I really don’t like talking about my “goal weight” and any of that.

I’m a bit of an open book (understatement of the year…) so I get that people feel really free to ask me about anything that seems different but sometimes I just want to be left alone about it.

Gosh, I sound bitchy today!

Why do people think it’s strange to not indulge, though? What’s the issue? Why do I need to be questioned just because I don’t want to eat, drink, or smoke that? (Someone tried to get me join in smoking cigarettes a few days ago. I said no. Oh yeah, and I’m allergic to smoke!) Shouldn’t people’s personal choices about what to consume be respected and considered their business?

You’ll have to excuse the ranty nature of this post today. I’ve had a hell of a week and I’m glad it’s over! Please tell me, though, I’m not the only one with these annoyances!
