I'm on Day 10 of Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Losing Weight program.
This has been a real eye opener for me to say the least.
First I learned to look back at how I used to be. Next I made a commitment to do it anyway ( days 2 & 3 ). Then I set up boundaries & a magic notebook ( days 4 & 5 ). With my many, many years of trying to lose weight, none of these ideas ever crossed my mind.
Next was learning to say " I'll have some later " in order to protect my program followed by a mantra of I can do this!!! ( days 6 & 7 )
All of this is great but days 8, 9 & 10 have been the most difficult for me thus far. In all my years of trying to lose weight I've never, ever asked for help. I figured that it was my problem so I'd have to deal with it myself - WRONG!!!!.
I'm learning that asking loved ones for help, looking for a little support & graciously accepting compliments will help me reach my goal faster. This is new territory for me.
Funny story - While drinking coffee this morning, Hubby walked in and said "You look very nice today " . Of course I was in my pj's, no make up & quite blurry eyed - REALLY????? You have to know this guy to love him & I do!!!!!!
