I know that diet, weight loss, body image - all these things are very personal. Many times we are tempted to loss weight on our own, private journey. I encourage you to choose differently. TELL EVERYONE!
Because everyone in my world knows I am trying to lose weight, they keep me accountable, they encourage me and they even find "treats" for us all - even me - to enjoy.
Two instances where this has been a great asset come to mind.
1. I went to a food show for work and my co-workers didn't pressure me to try things that were unhealthy. In fact, they pointed out the fresh fruit and healthy eating sections. BTW, the sugar free oreo was very good.
2. My co-workers and I love Sonic. We especially love Happy Hour when all of the drinks are half price. I have been enjoying happy hour too, but I get Sprite Zero with a flavor shot. This is much better on the calories than the fruit slushes of the past. Now, most of my co-workers also get Sprite Zero with a flavor shots - we are getting healthier together!
All of these things, and the many others, I would not have in my life if my weight loss was my little secret. The more people I tell, the more support I have and the more successful my journey will be!
