Learning to love the mockery

For lunch today, I had rye toast with avocado. I have a bunch of avocados, and they are delicious, so it seemed fine to me. I also have a lot of left over cut up limes and lemons, so I brought some to work to put in my water.

While I was in a meeting, two people made comments about my lunch, one comment was that semi-scornful "oh, being all HEALTHY..." Before now, I would have been embarrassed to have attention like that, but today... I considered the source, and just said "yep" and moved on. And yeah, I did feel a little smug. On the inside :)

I hate those kinds of comments. Back when I was in WW, I used to get all kinds of comments about not doing things "right". I get really defensive when somebody tells me I'm wrong, even in general, and throw in weight insecurities, and I get even more defensive.

I like your reaction. You just acknowledged it, and moved on. Good for you :)

Oh, we work with some nosey buttinskis! I can guess who said it too. Definetly good to take the high road.

I've noticed similar attitudes from people since I've quit drinking. Oh well. Keep fighting the good fight!
