From tomorrow I will eat sensible.for the rest of my life.
They just laughed and when I said that I could do with some encouragement they didn’t really listen and didn’t respond.
It kind of doesn’t feel great.
Idk how to even tell them that I didn’t like their lack of support. I feel like I’m making a big deal out of it (in their eyes)
Well even without their support I’m going to do it anyways it will just be harder.
So I just said to my brother are you not proud of me that I am starting sensible eating tomorrow?
and he said I am proud of you and then he did a sarcastic cheer and clap.
but idk if I want to approach my sister about how it made me feel, it is so awkward and I don’t want potential arguments with her, it would stress me out the anticipation of us having an argument of some kind or her saying something that hurts me even more?
am I taking this too seriously?
it does not feel like I am
is there a way that I can take her lack of support and laughter, not too seriously because right now I just don’t like how it feels
is this being too sensitive, like in a bad way? the way the reaction makes me feel?
Hey there, I’m sorry you weren’t taken seriously. That is not a good feeling at all, but don’t let it hinder your resolve! Support is awesome and makes the journey better, but it is in no way necessary. I would be hurt by that too, but draw strength from their response and show them that you deserve to be taken seriously.
Thanks @Later_Gator, wise words
I have to eat slower and improve my posture. I promised my parents.
I eat like a pig, that’s what my brothers told me
Are you still a vegan butterfly?
I do not diet but do in a way because I’m having a smaller lunch and trying to eat less.
I love eating.
I am trying to become a permanent vegan but it is so hard
I will get there eventually
how many years have you been a vegan for?
Not that your siblings didn’t treat you unfairly, but such a declaration opens you up to be trolled.
Eat sensibly but leave room for treating yourself a little, instead of allowing it to be a sibling war.
I think making an announcement made them think it was a joke and now they’re going to be defensive if you bring it up. Just let it go. It hurts, I know. My sisters would have done the same thing. I don’t look to my siblings for support. It just doesn’t work out. But we’ll support you here. There’s also a weight loss thread here. Do you have the money to try WW? You can get support at meetings. And you can eat whatever you want so you’re safe as a vegan. If not, just keep coming here. Tell us your ups and downs. This is a supportive community. Congratulations on your decision to get healthy
I was vegan for eight months then I broke my diet and ate meat but kept wanting to be vegan again but my boyfriend I had didn’t want me to go vegan and said if I go vegan I can f uck off which I eventually did.
I have been a vegan now for about ten months.
I hope to be vegan for the rest of my life.
There are some vegan foodies groups you can join.
Vegan cook books etc
There is challenge 22 which is a vegan challenge with mentors and dietitians and it is all free.
I’ve got all the recipes I just need to discipline myself like craaayzy
Thanks for the suggestion though I appreciate it very much.
