1/9/14 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Saturday

Advice for today?  Don't compare yourself with others.  My husband and I had a friend from college, her husband, and newborn over for dinner the other night.  We started talking about how little my friend is and how she could always eat like a horse and never gain any weight.  I don't know why this never occurred to me our freshman year but half the reason I gained the freshman (what seemed like "fifty") was because I ate like her.  She was my roommate and it was the first year I was away from home.  My parents had always eaten so healthy and being introduced to "junk food" on a daily basis by my friend made me think it was OK for everyone.  I never realized that all metabolisms are different.  Just because my roommate could eat a grilled cheese at 2 in the morning, Taco Bell, or a pizza smothered in cheese, sour cream, and sausage every night did not mean I could.  But, at the time, I made no connection to my parents healthy eating and keeping a low weight!  LOL, I honestly thought it was in some way to torture me - I hated it and just wanted to be like everyone else!  It's strange how a kid's mind thinks.  Watching my roommate I really thought, this is how normal people eat, and if she can eat like this, I can too.  I ate goldfish by the box in one sitting while we studied.  We ordered pizzas and take out food on a frequent basis.  Do you know how long it took me to lose FOUR YEARS of fatty eating and drinking weight?!  It took two and a half years of Jenny Craig, and two more years to learn portion control on my own and maintain my weight!  Be careful what you put in your mouth or you could be paying for it for years to come!  Every little bit adds up!
