You clearly have excellent self restraint. If it were me she’d be wearing it!!!

Daizy914:  I’d probably say something very mean, but I’m more of a blunt person when someone tells me what I can and can’t do.  Especially when I’m a grown woman.

wow! I love blunt people. When I find someone being overly blunt where it becomes critical I show the same respects and learn I can be just as blunt. I’d respond with “worry about yourself, not me.” And leave it. People use being blunt as an excuse to be rude. Its not and I would happily teach that lesson.

Daizy914:  I would say, very clearly and seriously to her, ‘I’m an adult, and I can chose to eat whatever I want, if I chose to have this I will’.

Not for food, but I’ve had to use that line before. It shut them up lol. Pull out your inner ‘mom’ voice haha.

“Don’t tell me what to eat. I’m not a child.”

Daizy914:  Go F yourself. But I’m blunt and straight forward like that so no one would be shocked. More ladylike answer “This is my cheat meal, besides I’m in a rush and need to get my tank filled fast.”

I’d tell her the same thing I tell my kids: “it is rude to comment on what people eat, how much/little, how quickly/slowly”. None of that bitches business!

I normally tell people i have to maintain my figure so i have to eat. I didn’t get this gorgeous starving myself. Or a different approach would be to say, don’t  worry about what i be eating and worry about your own damn life. Unless you plan on feeding me just shut up.

Ugh, what’s her problem!

I had a co-worker/friend who was very disiplined in her eating habits.  She lost a lot of weight between that and exercise, and I was super proud of her.  Since she lives super close to work and has a dog, she always goes home and lunch and prepares something healthy (sometimes I would join her!)  One day, she had to take her dog to the vet during her lunch break, so she didn’t have time to make herself anything, so she grabbed Wendy’s on her way back to the office.  One of our other co-workers would CONSTANTLY comment on anything my friend was eating that wasn’t healthy, if she happened to eat a piece of birthday cake or the Wendy’s that day.  It was really rude and annoying, and it always got awkward around the table when my friend would snap back at her lol.
