Still, that doesn't stop the food pushers from taking aim at me. Food pushing, a term from Beck, means that people will not accept no for an answer when it comes to serving food. They persistently try pushing food on you, even though you decline multiple times with valid excuses ("I'm not hungry." "I don't like it". etc)
For instance, the guys caught some fish from the bay this past weekend, and were absolutely insisting that I eat it. I love fish and seafood. However, I don't like to find bones in my fish while eating it (it gags me), and even Joel's brother admitted that he definitely did not filet the fish as best as he could. But still, one of the other guys kept on me about eating it and was giving me a hard time because I wasn't eating like everyone else was. In fact, I wasn't eating at all because I wasn't hungry (most likely because I had 2 smores and about 5 marshmallows well before the men came back from fishing. Of course, this is because I was hungry at that time - I had already eaten 2 of my hotdogs that day and could not choke down another for dinner. Not a great choice at all for dinner - the smores - but it curbed the hunger none the less). I, at first, try to be kind and politely refuse it. But it makes me angry after awhile. How do you really benefit from me eating something? It makes no sense.
I'm always looking forward to my Friday to start fresh, but this weekend we are traveling to my sister's house where eating out is a standard.
How do you guys deal with situations like this? Do you do a full out meal plan for yourself for those 3 days (Fri-Sun) or do you try to wing it? Please help!
