Compliments are a little scary...

Sunday, May 15, 2011

because if my weight loss is so noticeable that basically everyone I work with makes comments, then if I gain weight back THAT will be really noticeable too! Don't get me wrong I appreciate the compliments and it makes me feel really proud of myself whenever anyone says anything. I guess what really scares me is that if I do go the other way, I know I won't hear any comments out loud...but what if they're saying them behind my back.

I guess I'll use this fear as a motivator and also a sign that I need to stop being so paranoid!

I know I'm going to stay on track and keep the compliments coming!!!

    I have had some customers notice and when they say something I feel a little scared that I will now need to own this weight loss. Its on my shoulders. I fear failure so its a little tough. One of my friends told me the other day that I won't gain it back because I am changing my lifestyle. She has lost the weight she wanted and kept it off.

Just be happy that they are noticing and make a note to yourself that you WILL NOT move backwards again. As long as you stay on top of it, everything will be ok. emoticon
