I have to expand on the post about my co-worker earlier. We are both the same age, grew up in Brooklyn, and we have a young child, so we have a lot in common. In general, I really enjoy chatting with her, but I’m not sure what is going on with her. When I first mentioned changing my diet and losing weight, she went on and on about how she doesn’t understand dieting, and what was the point, etc. She actually tried to talk me out of it, but I didn’t listen to her. Apparently today she is the expert on “dieting”. In addition to her shipment of pills, etc, now she is preaching to me the benefits of the Daniels Diet (never heard of it), and why it is much better than the way I eat. Mind you, she hasn’t started it yet, but she knows it is better, she heard about it from someone. Going on…and on…and on about it for 10 minutes. She finally JUST stopped talking about it.
I don’t criticize her for anything, I just mind my business, but she keeps making it a point to say what I may be doing wrong. Now, if this new way works for her, that’s awesome, but it’s not for ME. I am very happy with my changes, and I don’t find it too difficult to maintain each day. Why is she trying to convince me I am wrong? I wish her the best, but I also wish she would let me be.
