Day 8 was sort of a rush in the morning, and I quick packed a bag of walnuts, pecans, and sunflower seeds. Awesome decision! That was some great fuel. My husband and I went to Pizza Ranch for dinner. If you’ve never been there, it’s basically a pizza buffet but they also have a salad bar and fried chicken. I grabbed some cheese pizza and ate just the toppings, and then went up to grab myself a salad.
Here’s where the heading of today’s blog post comes in. I made myself a delicious garden salad and topped it with buttermilk ranch dressing and sunflower seeds, and dished myself out some cottage cheese as well. As I was walking back to my seat, I got some of those plate-face looks. You know, when they look at your plate, then look at your face. It’s that “That’s a lot of fat” look. It’s even worse when you’re overweight, because they think that you got fat eating that way, when you’re actually losing weight by eating fat. I feel like I need a t-shirt.
I’m pretty much immune to the look, but I wish people wouldn’t do it! How ridiculous.
