Some background is that my grandpa who is 85 (almost 86) lives with us. I don't really need to take care of him just make sure he has food and makes it to dr appointments etc. Well his is always very opinionated when it comes to weight. My mom and uncle were very hurt by his comments growing up. Well last week I started a program at the gym and lost about 7 lbs. But yesterday when I found out I couldn't afford the trainer I decided to instead count calories and take fitness classes at the gym. I thought there nutrition was a little to restrictive. This way I don't feel deprived and I know it is a sustainable lifestyle. Anyway, so I counted calories yesterday and stayed under. This morning I got up and made Hungry Girl's Super Duper Coffee Malt. He saw what I made and shook his head. I told him I stayed the same weight this week and he said "you're not gonna lose this week". I said, "why not?" and he told me that my eating was wrong. This is discouraging to me. I think I am making the right choice in my nutrition. I just need to figure out a way to dispel negative comments and thoughts. I don't want to let the negative drag me down. Hopefully I can find a way to let go of the negative and focus on the positive.
