Today I Lied...

Thursday, October 25, 2012

When I went to my parents earlier today, my mom asked me if I had lost weight. (Some of you might know that I haven't told anyone in my family about my attempt to loose weight.) I wanted to say yes so bad, but I couldn't. I think I was scared that I would fail once I told someone 'my secret'. I always feel like people are judging me when I try to do something and I can't succeed and that is the last thing I want. I want people to see me and say 'Wow, you lost so much weight and you didn't fail,' instead of ' We knew, you wouldn't be able to loose the weight'. But I know, one day I will be able to tell people that I lost weight and that I stuck with it. emoticon
It still felt good to hear someone noticing that I have lost some weight though. emoticon

    emoticon That's not lying, it's uh...uh...uhhh. Okay so it is lying but it is not the kind of lie you tell to someone who asks if these jeans make their butt look fat, so it is okay. LOL!

    Wow, I can totally relate to your post about not talking about it with people close to you. It is especially difficult if you have tried or failed or back-slid in the past because you are afraid they will think you are just going to do the same thing again. I am not telling anyone either. People are starting to ask me and I just say, 'I don't know...I guess maybe my pants are looser'. LOL Acting like it's no big deal when it is huge to me (and YOU). Good for you on the weight's awesome when people start to notice. I found your blog through a link on the rookie 5k team page. Have a great weekend.

    I can certainly see your logic. If I tell people, I say "I am working on healthier eating" rather than say I am trying to lose weight. This way my weight doesn't become anyone else's business but MINE. Healthier MIGHT mean weight loss or NOT but it definitely means feeling better and having more energy.
