Can't accept a compliment

Monday, October 14, 2013

I don't handle compliments very well. At least not ones about my weight loss. I feel squeamish when people point it out. Plus it's usually in front of others and I just want to crawl in a hole. Why? I don't know, maybe I'm just embarrassed that I let myself get overweight again to begin with! I shouldn't even be having this struggle.

Plus when people then want to know how I did it and I tell them I get up every morning and walk 4 miles before work (and eat less), they seem disappointed.

Anyone else have this problem?

    I get it! It is good that people notice the change, but then we wonder what we looked like to start with! And, yeah, they are disappointed because everyone wants and easy fix to losing weight. They want that magic pill and all you offered was the common sense method of losing weight and getting healthy! Keep losing, be proud and simply say thank you!

  Oh, yeah! A lot of people say it must be the exercise as some do not want to believe it's in what and the way you eat as well. Everything does not work for everyone so I've learned to say, "thanx for noticing"! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I feel a little uncomfortable too. It's weird because I am glad that other people can see it and I know I should be proud, but it is almost embarrassing that they noticed.
