Ok I have a new pet peeve... People who are in a diet kick and then criticize the rest if us people who eat whatever we feel.

Ill admit I'm 120 and exercise 3-4 days a week. I don't exercise to loose weight and happy with my body image. But don't say bagels are evil while you clearly see me eating one and bash indulging in chocolate or heaven forbid a slice of pizza!!! What am I going to explode after I eat this bread role??? I like variety of healthy and junk food... What is so wrong with that???

Errr it's really ignorant if you ask me. Glad you peeps on a diet are making a life style choice but keep your nose leveled about it. End rant!

have you tried dark chocolate?  It is actually considered very healthy for you and a little goes a long way.  I usually have it with some almonds to cut its strength.

I agree! Just because someone else is on a diet doesn't mean they should try and guilt me for eating what I want to... I'm sorry that I was blessed with a high metabolism. Don't hang out with me if it bothers you so much!

I hear ya!! My deskmate at work says all day long how she is supposedly eating healthier but she grazes all day on crackers and snacks and things!!! I know exactly what I eat and why I'm fat... lol but a box of wheat thins is not healthy to eat all at once just because it has "wheat" in the name!!

 They have to put down your food choices to convince themselves not to tackle you and stuff it down their gullet...haha...

i hate when I'm dieting and some skinny chick comes onto Cafemom and brags about how much she can eat and not gain weight.
