How did "You look great!" take away my motivation?
Monday, March 25, 2013
I am down 47 pounds (great, right?) and a lot of friends/coworkers, etc have been giving me that positive affirmation "Wow, you look great!" "You have been working hard" etc. etc... What I realized is that all of that positive feedback, while it felt great, it kind of derailed me. Seems odd, but I had to step back and notice that I was creeping back into old way/habits. If everyone thought I looked great, I must be done, right? NO! I still have a long road ahead of me. I am proud of myself for noticing how I could be side-tracked and am committed to being back on track.
I will embrace the kind comments and use them to MOTIVATE me to keep moving in the right direction. :)
