Women’s networking – put a burger on the menu

Ok so this is a silly post but I’ve been wondering about this for a while. I’ve been going to quite a few women’s networking events both locally and in London and when I get the menu options I have a massive dilemma.

I’m a pig… I like carby food. I’ve never been on a diet and if it’s not a bit greasy then I pull a sad face. But when I think of the actual meeting I have this vision of me choosing a salad or a fish option. Why would I do this… I’m worried that I am going to be judged for liking bad food!

I want a burger on the menu though – go on I know that it goes against the norms of women watching their weight but I’m going to a networking event I hardly eat out. I want something naughty with melted cheese.

I think it’s interesting how when I am in these situations I do worry about what people will think of me. I know for a fact that I am the only one to have chosen a chicken and mushroom pie with mash whilst the rest of the group have chosen lemon sole in an upcoming meeting.

Should I worry what they think of me by my food options? Just a bizarre thought. But let’s face it – how excited would I be if they put a burger on the menu I’d be too happy to care!
