I lost 2 pounds this week for a total of 13.6 in 11 weeks. Slow and steady wins the race, right? I must admit that after my 22 year old and 12 year old fought like 3 year olds last night I went on a binge. I am such an emotional eater. I knew I was being stupid but did it anyway. My goals this week are the same (stay on plan, make smart choices if eating out, drink tons of water and seriously exercise this week because I still haven't done any in weeks).
So I want to talk about days 9 & 10 of 100 Days of Weight Loss. It's about your support system on your weight loss journey and what you want from them. The "to dos" were to take a quiz about how you want your support system to react/act when you do things like eat junk, gain back some weight, etc and then read your answers to your loved one. And to ask someone you love to compliment you on anything from your weight loss to your hair to your clothes (quote) and then come up with a response to said compliment so you affirm their compliment. Basically so you can practice taking compliments instead of saying things like "yeah but I still have a lot to lose".
Well ladies, I had a really hard time with these exercises. I took the quiz and wrote down my response to a compliment on my weight loss (smile and say "thank you for noticing, it made my day") but I didn't have the nerve to ask anyone for compliments or read to them what I want from them.
What's up with that? Why couldn't I tell my hubby that if he sees me eating junk to ask me if I'm having a bad day? Could you ask your loved ones to compliment you or tell them how you'd like for them to react.act when you do certain things like sabotage yourself?
