Can I vent???
Ok, I kind of bitched about this earlier (like yesterday!
), but I ate breakfast with my in laws again and it is such a pain in the A$$!!!! Here was my MIL's order:
"Do you have skim milk for the coffee? No?? Oh. Well, can I have an egg white omelete? Just egg whites, no yolks? Ok, and I want the veggie omelet, BUT with NO CHEESE, NO onions, no green peppers. And it has to be egg WHITES. Ok, and it comes with toast? I only want ONE slice and dry, no butter. I don't want more than one slice - JUST ONE. Oh, and do you have Canadian
bacon? Because I can't have regular bacon, I can only have Canadian bacon." Mind that we were at IHOP.
JEESH!!!! I just can not handle the need to annouce to everyone your particular dietary needs. ARRRRGGGGHHH. It's like she wants everyone to stand up and applaud her for being so freaking noble or something.
Ok, and I'm being really mean, I know. Hell - I'm on this thread; I struggle with my weight. But it's just so annoying! She still ate a 3 egg omelete and 4 pieces of canadian bacon, along with toast and coffee. I mean, come ON!!
There is no easy solution. If you want to lose weight you have to eat less and exercise more. I know that's really hard to do and I know that eating less can take a lot of different forms, some of which work better for some people, but I just get so tired of having it be the whole focus of everyone's lives. Maybe it's just that I live in LA where people are obsessed with their weight and the way they look, but it's just annoying to me.
Sorry. Rant over.
