After posting yesterday that I am 3 weeks late starting my 12 week weight loss challenge, at work today a friend saw me getting ready to eat lunch and came over and asked me: "What are you eating for lunch, today?" It was an innocent question (yes my friend does know about my 12 week challenge). But more importantly, it was probably one of the most supportive things he could have said to me. I told him what I had and he congratulated me on my good choices. I thanked him very much and asked him to please feel free to check everyday to see what kind of choices I am making. He was very encouraging and it helps to know that friends and family will be holding me accountable. If they can believe in me... I can believe in me too!
Some people might have thought that he was judging me... I know that he is encouraging me. I REALLY do appreciate the support! I am doing well, so far!
