    Best: Feeling ok about just eating a steak for lunch.

    Worst: Being out of steak.

    Best: breaking my fast with cold boiled potatoes and being satisfied until dinner for a change.
    Worst: watching the snow fall and being stuck at home.

    Best: measuring myself and seeing that I've lost 1 inch from the waist and half that from the hips!! In three days!

    Worst: A family member calling me a fat bum.
    I guess the weight loss isn't that noticeable, yet.

    Traveller,

    I apologize if I am being rude, or crossing a line, but you family sound like a bunch of JERKS.

    Thank you for bluntness, Gladmorning!

    Hmm. But I don't really know how to respond to that!
    The family member in question is my sister. She's tall and really skinny, so she has no idea what it's like being self-conscious about your body. We're also complete opposites in personality, so we fight a lot, which is usually when she says these things.
    The rest of them...well, none of them are overweight, or even close to it so they have no idea, either. My parents are reasonably supportive though, even though they don't really agree with what I'm doing.

    I understand rough sister relationships. My parents are annoyed by my primal lifestyle. They are both fat and sick, but they claim to be so worried about me, my weight, and my health. Yet, they are irritated when I don't want to eat their pizza, etc.

    Fortunately, my sister is mostly primal with me. She has baby weight to lose, but has mostly always been a normal weight. She doesn't stick with it like I do, but it's nice to have someone with me.

    Honestly? Write down their comments. Someday, when you're successful, you can rub it in their faces. Well, that's what I would do, anyway.

    Yup, it just doesn't make sense.
    My mother sounds a bit like your sister. She tries to eat a bit less wheat etc, but just doesn't stick with it. And for some reason, still gets annoyed when I decline something.

    Y'know, I would write it down, but I'd end up with a whole darn book!!
    Maybe I'll just write down the worst ones...

    I would write it down for sure. One week I wrote down every mean/rude thing my family said to me and to each other and handed them out at the end of the week. They were shocked and disgusted with themselves. You only get one family. No matter how irritating, etc, we should love each other. Not put each other down.

    Maybe do it just for a week, for the purposes of showing them.

    I think that writing down their comments can cause them to have more of an impact on you than they should.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Magicmerl makes a good point. For me, writing things down is a way to let go, or release whatever it was.
