Yes, I have this problem. I don't know why. Here's a post I wrote just yesterday to reach out about this.
I thought inner changes were taking place, but I think it's a lot deeper. I don't know where to go with it either. As I said, my family, even my 9 year old, have become extremely supportive, though I get resentful when people (they or "friends") try to police me. That's the eternal rebel in me I suppose! In other words, I'll eat what I decide to eat, when I decide to eat it. This is MY ATKINS thing, not yours. But that works in opposition doesn't it?
I don't know maybe I have to see someone about this. I know I can get obnoxious when I start to look and feel good, because I feel unstoppable and am accomplishing something (though that really should have nothing to do with my weight, right?
). But people don't like that. I know I don't. And I think this is the question at hand....WHY does it happen and what do I do about it.
Man, this is the only place I can come to talk about this stuff and have someone else say, "YES!, I've been there!", or "I'm experiencing that now!"
I'm just speaking right out on this, so I hope there is some feedback for me, I sure could use it. I hope I haven't offended anyone, but if there are lots of us out there like this, then its a good thing to talk about it.
Karen, just wanted to say, your posts are very insightful, and your recipes, and others' have saved my daughter and I from boring meaningless meals. I let her help me do some things and she feels there's a double benefit... mom stays on her diet with her help, and we get to eat something new and delicious.
Ok, better get back to work, bbl.
