Sindy's Blog - February 15, 2007

February 15, 2007

I hope by now you have all recovered from your chocolate hangovers. Mine lasted all through first period - but I guess that's what happens when you scarf down a whole box of truffles to yourself! I couldn't help it... they tasted soooo good.

My girls' night movie-fest went really well. It was just me, Amy, my mom, a couple girls from school and my Aunt Jilly (who's actually my mom's best friend). She and Mom have been friends since, like, second grade, and she's never gotten married. This year she was flying solo like the rest of us so mom invited her over. We rented a ton of movies, made hot chocolate, had ice cream sundaes and of course, popped bowl after bowl of popcorn!

Mom and I had planned the perfect movie line-up for our girls' Valentine's bash. We figured we'd start things out slow and then work our way up to the ultimate, sappy, tear-inducing flick. To ease us into a romantic mood we picked The Little Mermaid. There are tons of great songs to sing along to, there's a really cute prince and it has a very, happy ending. I don't think I will ever get tired of that one. Next up was my pick - The Notebook! I know it's cheesy and really sappy but it gets me every time. In fact, it got every one of us last night. There was not a dry eye in the living room by the time the credits rolled.

The last movie we watched was Dirty Dancing - picked by my mom and Aunt Jilly. Apparently they've watched it like 20 times together. I'd never seen it but I'm glad we left it for last because it was nice to end the night on a teary, but happy ending. If we had of watched The Notebook last, I think I would've had dreams all night about getting old but instead I dreamt that I joined a touring dance show and fell madly in love with my dance partner who looked remarkably good in a pair of tights. I also dreamt that I had giant white angel wings and could fly. I'm not sure what that was about!

So how did your Valentine's go? How many of you had hot dates? Who stayed home and pigged out on chocolate by themselves? I'd what you got up to!

Peace Out,

Sindy

    Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

    I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

    I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
