Common Comments I’ve Gotten When Telling People I’m Starting An Extreme Diet With My Boyfriend
Abby Perez

Starting off the beginning of the year means fresh beginnings so I had planned to start clean with a diet. They say the hardest thing about staying on it is that everyone around you tempts you with their normal diet. However, choosing to do this with my boyfriend makes this decision SO much easier, along with people's support.

I'm very lucky to have such great people in my life that day equally as great comments. Here are a few comments that I've been told that may or may not encourage you to get your fit life going this beginning of the school year:

1. “Remember to eat!”

Although some people may take this in a bad way, it shows care! It's especially heartwarming when they had looked at my boyfriend and said, “make sure she eats" —it shows not only the lay care for my well being over body image, but also that my partner wouldn't want to jeopardize it either!

2. “You don’t need to, but I support you.”

We tend to think diet-ing is primarily for losing weight. And although that is ONE of my personal reasons, I know deep down that I shouldn't have to do it to cut down to a size or shape. What makes it even more worth wild is when others have told me this, especially my boyfriend during this process.

3. “You and your boyfriend are adorable/cute/goals!”

It’s great having a support, again, but people encouraging it, rather than discouraging it, helps you through the rough days.

4. “There will be bad days.”

Speaking of— DIETS DO SUCK, but they’re not forever. It’s a great way to try new things to better your lifestyle and sometimes that takes some sacrifice, as my boyfriend has reminded me.

5. “Make sure you rest.” 

Fatigue becomes a big thing with the specific diet I’m on with him, as I cut out ALL forms of sugar (including fruits!) It’s good to adapt and balance to your lifestyle during this time and nothing matters more than your health. Having partner stop you from yourself really has helped.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12962

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
