Is it Truly Worth It?

I'm having a harder and harder time with not feeling guilty because I don't eat any meat but fish and everyone else has to accommodate my eating habits.

This mostly came around with trying to locate a restaurant for my birthday lunch/dinner (early, since my birthday isn't actually for another week). My now-fiance' (who proposed on March 7th) eats about as many vegetables as I do meat. My mother is diabetic and can't eat spicy food, so mexican is out. My brother in law hates sushi (so does my mother), so that's out. My sister is a little easier to work around, but it's making finding something increasingly difficult. I finally settled between two places here in Eugene that offer vegetarian options for me and meat laden ones for everyone else. And the fact my fiance's family are all eat meaters when we head there this summer also doesn't help.

I can't help but wonder if I'm not just making my life a bit more complicated. I feel great, and I am pretty sure I've lost more weight (my pants suddenly don't fit! which is great), but this is becoming a real pain to keep making separate meals and such.

I think it's just guilt over the fact I'm such a pain to accommodate food-wise now.


  1. Don't be! You do what is going to be best for you. Sean and I are not eating processed sugar, alcohol, or caffeine right now. We will be adding dairy and wheat to that shortly. So there is a whole other set of complications for family meals. HAHA

    Where are you thinking of going?

  2. Oh, and BTW... Sean will go to sushi places so long as there is something non-sushi there. We went with Jer and Susy when we were in Cali. We all ate sushi and Sean had curry. It worked out fine.
