Hi guys, does anyone else have the problem of very loving and supportive people who constantly compliment you.. which in turn brings your guard down and tempts you into eating naughtily because obviously everyone thinks you look great (even though in reality you have a long way to go?)
It’s a very weird situation. The hardest is when people feel the need to tell you that you’ve lost enough weight already – I don’t think they mean to sabotage but they have the potential to do so. I have a long way to go – my goals are partly determined by me and partly determined by my doctor. While the weight loss is helping my self esteem etc I can’t forget the real reason behind it – my health. It’s weird that people feel they have the right to decide what someone else should or shouldn’t do with their body?
I do explain my situation and I am open about my struggles and experiences. I feel I have nothing to be ashamed of and therefore I have nothing to hide. Maybe I will help others by sharing. Yet sometimes people don’t want to hear my opinion about my body. That’s the frustrating part. Sigh. I guess we will never be understood by everyone. Thanks for listening… or reading… 😊
