The hardest part by far was saying NO! I knew if I put my mind to it I could cut out all the crap foods when I was alone but at parties, functions, school ect it was going to be tough. I’d be at a birthday party and when they’d be handing out the chunks of cake I would politely turn my piece away. Someone would quickly snap “What’s a matter, you trying to loose weight or something?” “Come on one slice won’t kill you” I could see the person thinking too themselves “This kid is like 100 lbs overweight, he really thinks he’s going to loose weight by not having one piece” I would sometimes really feel the attention being drawn to myself. I could see it in people’s eyes. I could see people thinking to themselves, “Wow, that kids huge. The other kids are eating cake, how come he’s so big and they aren’t?”
At first I would usually just end up saying, “Okay fine I’ll just have one piece” And then all the hard work I did during the week to eat clean, would be ruined by having some junk food on the weekend or a few soda’s and McDonald’s with my friends. I started to get pissed off. Not so much at myself but at other people. Finally I said that’s it. I was going to jump in with both feet. Screw it! After that, I can tell you this much, it got easier……much easier. It’s hard at first saying no when you don’t really see much change, but once my clothes started fitting more loosely and people started noticing it got easier…if anything almost automatic. It was just getting over that first hump…
Keep the blue side up.
