By sharing my success during the first few weeks, I discovered how amazing it feels to be congratulated! Before I spoke up, my friends noticed a difference in me but didn't say anything for fear of embarassing me. By letting them know I enjoy talking about it, I opened the door to their praise!
I don't share all the details of my weight loss with everyone, only the friends I know will support and motivate me through my journey. I can't imagine doing this without them!
