Weight Loss Opinions

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… 😊

    You get to look in the mirror (just be sure you’re not ONLY examining outward appearance 🙂 ) and decide who you want to be in terms of health. Then you get to set those goals and chase them–whatever they may be as long as it is in the pursuit of healthy living. No one else’s habits/hangups/opinions get to dictate how you alter your course.

    You’re the master of your ship. 🙂 Good luck today.

        Well, I did steal that one! Here’s the whole poem. Focus on that last line!

        Out of the night that covers me,
        Black as the pit from pole to pole,
        I thank whatever gods may be
        For my unconquerable soul.

        In the fell clutch of circumstance
        I have not winced nor cried aloud.
        Under the bludgeonings of chance
        My head is bloody, but unbowed.

        Beyond this place of wrath and tears
        Looms but the Horror of the shade,
        And yet the menace of the years
        Finds and shall find me unafraid.

        It matters not how strait the gate,
        How charged with punishments the scroll,
        I am the master of my fate,
        I am the captain of my soul.

    My thoughts EXACTLY. Which is why I never tell anyone and if they question I brush them off. lol! My progress is more important than their inquiring minds 🙂
