Seriously... how good does it feel when someone gives you a compliment?
"Your hair looks great"!
"I love your shoes, where can I get some"?
"Your children are gorgeous, you must be so proud".
You know what feels even better than that?
When someone notices your weight loss!
A compliment about your weight loss can be all the motivation that you need to push a little harder and say NO to the maccas drive through on the way home.
A compliment can give you the determination to keep going.
A compliment can give you that important boost to your self esteem and can be the starting off point to you giving yourself a compliment.
This week I have had 2 people notice my weight loss AND it's only Thursday :-)
The first person was a work collegue who had not seen me in 2 weeks and said "Look how much weight you are losing! You are just looking fabulous!"
The second person was my gorgeous man. I often think it is harder for people who see us every day to notice weight loss as the change happens so gradually but he told me that I am looking fabulous and that my legs were getting smaller and he was really noticing when he cuddles me.
I have written these compliments down as they mean a lot to me.
But more importantly I am going to give myself a compliment this week for the first time in a long time.
"I am so proud that am starting to fit into clothes that I never thought would fit me again. I am feeling so much healthier and the hard work I have been putting in is making me feel comfortable to step outside the house without being restricted by plus size clothing that is way to tight."
I hope that everyone else can give themselves a compliment this week.
Go on, you deserve it!
