Today is weigh-in day. Another Saturday has rolled around the calendar. Have had many stressful situations in the past couple of weeks. Dieting has been hard but not impossible. I’ve adjusted the diet. I’ve made some course corrections. Now once again I must step on the cold steel platform to see how the adjustments have worked. You can’t distract a scale and sneak on for a good result. It’s not distractible. Maybe if I get on singing a happy song it will be happy to give me a good result. I don’t think so. The scale has no agenda. It doesn’t care who steps on it. The heavier you are the worse it’s results will be. The only thing I can do it just step up on it and take the results it gives me—for better I hope.
Are you a pescatarian? Maybe a definition would help. It’s a person whose diet includes fish but no meat. Reading the information on this word, you will readily find there is a controversy over the word “meat.” Vegetarians don’t consider pescatarians vegetarians. Pescatarians say they don’t eat meat they only eat fish. The original definition took into account the 1500’s idea that meat was animal flesh and fish was not. Fish for the pescatarian includes shellfish.
Personally, I don’t care. I’m the opposite of both. I eat animal flesh and don’t like fish. Vegetarians are less strict than vegans who may not eat any animal product, including honey nor do they wear any animal clothing. Both have a combination of dietary and ethical reasons for their diet. Since killing animals is an ethical part of their thinking, they can exhibit an extreme passion for their beliefs.
I wonder what kind of world we would live in if we never killed any of the food animals. There might be a herd of cows and a flock of chickens on every front yard. However, I respect everyone’s right to believe as they do. The same is true for religious beliefs. The reciprocation is not always mutual.
No matter your diet preferences, do something that works for you.
