Is there someone in your life who refuses to accept that you’re on the path to happy and healthy? Does this person constantly try to sabotage your efforts by pushing fatty foods or bad habits on you?
We call this person the “pie pusher.”
The pie pusher coerces you into splurging with statements like “Come on! I’m not eating this if you don’t!” or “But I slaved away on these cookies all night—you have to try one!”
Listen, we get it. Sometimes it’s easier to eat so-and-so’s homemade such-and-such than to cause a scene refusing it. But fighting the dessert devil on your shoulder is hard enough! Why let someone else win that battle?
The next time the pie-pusher gets pushing, push back with one of these strategies:
Be a straight shooter
Explain that the dish looks delicious, but since you’re on Nutrisystem, you’ll pass. Rather not get into that? How about simply saying, “That looks great, but I’m completely stuffed!”
Grab a doggy-bag
Uncomfortable passing? Take the food to go. Sneak it to someone else who would appreciate the leftovers!
The first few times you refuse will be the toughest. But if you’re consistent, loved ones and acquaintances will eventually accept your refusal as routine, and stop pushing!
