To Tell or Not To Tell?
Friday, December 20, 2013
I have lost 20 pounds since I finally started getting serious about my weight in late August. And people have noticed and asked. I don't tell unless I am asked but after 20 pounds it is finally starting to show. Last night I picked up my cell phone and glanced at my email messages and there were 19 so I was casually looking through them and they were all comments to a facebook post and they said things like "good job" and "congratulations". Couldn't figure out what that was all about since I had only put a picture of my car after I washed it and said I'd take bets on how long it would stay clean. So, I got on my laptop and opened up facebook. My daughter wrote a very nice post saying that I wouldn't brag about it so she was going to basically telling people I had lost the weight and had amped up my Jazzercise. Now, it was a very nice post and I had lots of compliments and lots of likes but I'm just not sure how I feel about it. In the back of my mind I'm thinking--now everyone is going to be watching me like a hawk. My daughter thought I was mad because I didn't say anything but I'm just confused. How has everyone else handled telling people about their weightloss?
