Day 10: Respecting myself & deal breakers

Hi folks, Wow what a strange few days. I found myself in a situation where I felt bullied and a bit abused actually, however this was done with smiles and banter. I came away feeling shocked and a bit stunned. Also disappointed and generally quite confused. I still don't know what to do with this, but it might turn out to be a deal breaker. I think I'm going to have to move out of that situation, as staying in it is like an affirmation that I don't deserve respect.

 

'Deal breakers' have also been on my mind over the weekend. I relaxed with some friends and realised on Monday that I actually gained FIVE pounds over the weekend. I can barely fit into my jeans any more and noticing the way that looks (and feels, not good for the tummy!) has been a deal breaker for me. No 'ifs', no 'buts' (except my large one), just time to gently get on with losing some weight without fuss or drama. At the weekend a friend of mine said he thought I was making the weight loss into a mountain when it is really a lot of little choices. I didn't like what he had to  say, it was challenging and I felt quite defensive. Yet, today I did just get off the bus one stop early and went for a 20 minute walk.

 

Like the last 100 day challenge I did it seems a lot of change is coming my way...

Oh I totally get you on this one. I too have realized it is the little things that make the big difference. Like having a sandwich...with no bread. I just put all the ingredients in between two romaine lettuce leaves and enjoyed every single bit of it.

Good for you...love the early bus stop thing and walking. Keep burning the calories...You go girl !

From having lost 40 lbs recently I can attest to that being a lot of little choices! But it can certainly be a mountain of them : ) You'll get there. And yes, you do deserve respect. Good for you for walking! Maybe that comment of your friend helped motivate you. Good luck and enjoy the process because it is a process.
