April would be a really good time for me to do a long fast. It will start getting warmer. I hate fasting in the winter.
It's kind of true when people say fat friends make or keep you fat. It's hard to diet or fast around my friend (or maybe frenemy ) is is also fat.
She is 200ish lbs, just 30 lbs lighter than me, but thinks she is thin in comparison and I'm suppose to be the fat one. She talks to me like I'm grossly obese and she is just normal. Her dieting beliefs are very mainstream and not really healthy. Her idea of dieting is getting a chicken salad of Mac Donalds drenched in Ranch dressing. And thinks I'm all wrong and confused about dieting because I don't want to eat 'animal protein'.
She has a really aggressive personality and I have a passive one. I am used to 'keeping the peace' and don't like upsetting people. but if I am going to do a month long fast I am going to have to let her get 'upset' with me not following her dieting 'advice' when we go out.
I haven't been a good poster boy for the diets I follow and fasting, which she throws in my face as 'obviously it doesn't work'. I just haven't been doing it right or sticking with it. But her 'diet' "obviously doesn't work" either. She has been stuck at 200ish lbs for several years and looks worse than ever.
It's just not about fasting for me now. It's about sticking to my guns, and asserting myself and getting over my fears of upsetting and displeasing others.
