1. What's for dinner?

2. When invited to BBQ's in the summer, what signature dish do you usually bring?

3. Where did your parents meet?

I refuse to consider any fodd "good" or " bad," they are just foods, not moral issues. I try to plan my eating every week realistically, which means that I know there will be times when I will want to eat something that doesn't meet good health guidelines. Knowing that that is going to happen, the things for me that are worth splurging on include good quality cheese, interesting wines, breads, interesting sauces, and creme brûlée. Always creme brûlée. I can go off plan once, maybe twice a week and still meet my fitness goals. That's why I'll try your garlic naan, but pass on cherry dump cake. If I only get one or two chances to indulge during the week, I want them to count.

"Eating disorder?" ------------ No, dear, breast cancer and elevated blood sugar. Why on earth would you suggest that I have an eating disorder? Just to be nasty for no good reason?

<<Nope have no problem that they would not want to try it. Just stating how I have brought it to many bbq's and parties and everyone loves it. That doesn't mean everyone will love it and I am sure no one here would ever even admit to trying it if they did. lol. >>

Great, so why exactly do you think that we don't enjoy food or living a little with our eating?   Accept difference.

Yes...one of my two exceptions for dessert that does not include dark chocolate....creme brulee, the other key lime pie.  Otherwise it's dark chocolate or pass.  I'm more of a savory than sweet anyway.

I have noticed some thing for years on this debate board... and this thread illustrates it perfectly.. but I was unable to define until a recent conversaton with my daughter.  Allow me to explain.

my daughter is picking her courses for her Freshman year in high school.. she and her science teacher agreed she could handily take honors physical science even though her math level is one level below honors (still nothing to sneeze at)  he signed off on her selection, so did her guidance counselor and she wsa good to go.  However, two of her classmates  who ARE in honors math took it upon themselves to say she "couldn't" take that level science unless she took the corresponding math level (even though the actual TEACHER assessed her as being just fine for that given you know her average of 100 in 3 semesters of science) .. and peer to peer conversations being what they are the girl became full of self doubt and she came to me.

I explained to her that there exists a phenomenon that sometimes people, often young women, seem unable to grasp that a choice one person makes does not say anything bout their OWN choices.  That my daughter beeing deemed smart and capable enough to tackle this class does not mean these young women are NOT ALSO smart and capable.. but that is a sense of security that often comes with age and life perspective and that often when people criticize our choices it is because they view a hidden threat or challenge to their own choices and actions.  For example someone saying to me "I went to the gym today" really truly can just mean "i went to the gym today" .. and if I interpret it as "I went to the gym and you didn't you big fat slob so i'm better than you" then THAT is on me not on them.   just like here.. for someone to say "I always bring a dish to share" and another person may say "I do not".. BOTH situations are valid.. BOTH actions have merit and neither denigrates the other.   Someone saying they like healthy eating does not mean other peole don't.. We all have our own realities and our own lives to live and the reality is our choices have not one thing to do with anyone elses choices. 

But the phenomenon fascinates me.. that whole thinking that " to build up my own choices I must tear down others"  is  on the same level of these 14 year old girls who think that someone being smart must mean they are not or to prove themselves smart they must plant the seeds of doubt in another girl that she may not be.   I like to think this is the type of thinking that ends in early adulthood but clearly it does not.. at least when there is the relative anonymity of a message board

It's quite fascinating .. and troubling .. to watch

You know, as someone who has only seen the 130s in her ninth month of one pregnancy (and that was the pg in which I gained 30 lbs, I didn't even come close to that w/the other pregnancy), I find the "eating disorder" accusation to be a fairly standard line when someone (who may be a bit more round) has a case of the little green monster. She's thin, so she must have an eating disorder. Nope. Sometimes people are thin simply because they take care of their bodies: they eat right and they exercise. I've weighed the same weight my entire adult life--it really is that simple.
