I'm just wondering because I've been thinking a LOT about this recently.
Basically anytime I'm with a group of friends, everyone PIGS out... whether we go out to a restaurant or are just snacking at someone's house. I wouldn't call any of my friends fat at all, but some of them have a little extra junk in their trunks. Most of them played sports and stuff all through high school so it's not like any of them are unhealthy and super chunky. I have 2 friends that are both pretty skinny, one just has a really fast metabolism and the other one is going to school to be a dance major so she dances so much. So both of them just pig out a lot too.
It just always makes me feel uncomfortable. Because I like to eat somewhat healthy and I try to work out a lot. It's so hard when I'm hanging out with like 5 friends and everyone works their way through like 3 bags of chips, popcorn, etc. And sometimes when we go out to eat my friends will be like "WHAT THE HECK GRETCHEN, STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT!" because I'll get some sort of grilled chicken or a salad instead of their huge burgers & fries. And then I feel really guilty and like I'm almost... boasting or showing off that I'm skinny? Because I'm one of the slimmest of my friends, and I'm also the shortest so they'll always freak out at me when I tell them how much I weigh because most of them are like 4 inches taller than me and not skinny anyway so I sound even smaller.
A lot of times I just say "Oh to the heck with it!" because they actually make me feel bad for eating healthy, so I'll eat a ton of ice cream with them or order some unhealthy meal.
But then I feel so guilty and do like an hour of cardio the next day
I don't know, I just hate these dynamics of my circle of friends. Does anyone else have similar problems? Or even the opposite?
