A New Challenge
Friday, August 07, 2009
Lately, I've come across a new feeling, and I'm not sure how to handle it. The new feeling? It's called - HAPPINESS!!!! I've lost almost 50 pounds, and suddenly I like myself. the new challenge? It's handling this happiness without driving other people crazy. And another problem: I was brought up to be modest and not brag on myself. So when people compliment me, I don't know how to handle this either. People are actually asking me for tips on eating healthier. And if you knew how unhealthy I've treated my body all my llife, it's ludicrous when someone asks for those health tips. They say there's nothing worse than a reformed alcoholic, well, it's the same for a reformed foodaholic. All I want to do is talk about Sparkpeople and how they've helped me. I know I've still got a long way to go, but now I know I can do it. (Oh, no, another new feeling: self-conofidence!)
I'd love to hear from other sparkers on how they handle compliments. What do you say?
