I know this is an older video blog, but I only just watched it today. But you hit on something I can relate to. It's the need to be noticed where weight is concerned. Here's the thing... it takes 4 weeks (generally speaking) till we notice a change in ourselves, and it takes twice that long for others to see the change in us. Don't get discouraged. It will come.
Just a quick note to let you know that even if your girlfriends don't support you - YOU must support you. YOU ARE WORTH THIS TIME AND ATTENTION.
Know what you do is for your own health and happiness, no one else's and so they don't matter. You're already a beautiful woman, these things you do will make you a strong and healthy woman in addition to being beautiful.
Each drop of sweat is earned, each pound taken off was paid for by YOU with hard work done by YOU. Be proud of yourself for every small success and know that without a doubt YOU CAN DO THIS.
Know that you are so brave for being willing to put yourself out there on a video blog. Be Proud Of Yourself! I totally understand on the support/validation issue. Losing weight can be so hard and we're putting alot of energy and time into it and we want it to be noticed and hear "great job." Just remember you are doing a Great Job and that there's nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel fabulous and healthy. On the food front I found that if I keep apples, grapes and different types of nuts, without salt, around I can grab something that won't overwhelm my body but give it a positive fuel boost to get me through the night when I do realize I've skipped a meal. Maybe you can make sure to have some favorite fruit around the house for those moments. Then you know you'll have a healthy option in the face of temptation. Anyway keep up you're awesome work and know that there are alot of us sending you encouraging thoughts 2659 days ago
Congratulations on your first vlog. Please know that every day you feed your body the nutrients it need, every day you move your body beyond your usual routine...its a good day. I know we all want to be told "good job", "you're looking good", "are you losing weight?".... and those comments will come eventually...but who better then ourselves can tell us those things. It has taken me 61 years to realize this, I'm so glad you are doing it at your young age. You can do it.. You ARE doing it. Congratulations on your wedding. You are a beautiful woman so will be a beautiful bride!
