Family is finally noticing I'm losing weight!

Monday, May 14, 2012

I saw my family yesterday for mother's day. The last time I had seen my parents was christmas. I hadn't seen my sister since then either, except briefly two weeks before yesterday. I got a text last night from my mom, thanking me for coming down and doing some yard work for her... and also telling me that she and my sister were talking after I left about how it looked like I had lost some weight. She started asking questions on how I had lost as much as I have...

Previously my family has been been fairly unsupportive in regards to me working at losing some weight. It was nice to have my mom asking how I've been doing it. It seems that leading by example is the best way to encourage my immediate family to work on becoming healthier themselves. :)

    That's great. I don't share a lot with people in real life about my "journey" or plans to lose weight and run. However, I sure do love when they notice. Sometimes it's hard for me to feel like I'm doing it, or it's worth it - but those comments really solidify that I'm doing something right. Congrats on those 40 pounds, that's amazing!

    It's always nice to get that motivation from loved ones. Sometimes they can be the most critical! Keep up the fab work!
