Verbal Support From a Friend

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

I recently got together with a school friend. We have not seen each other in about 10 years. We have talked on the phone over that time, but just have not been together socially.

We went out of town on a day trip and had a good time together. On the way back home she wanted to stop at a ladies clothing store. I have shopped there before, but now, I know that they do not have my size. (YET!).

I had discussed my weight loss and hopes of future losses with my friend on our journey. She was very supportive. When we were in the store, she purchased two pullover shirts. She is a size medium.

I told my friend that I liked a lot of their clothing and wished they were my size. I said, I'm working on losing more weight. She said, maybe we could come back here when you lose more weight.

I thought that statement was so supportive. "WHEN" you lose more weight. It meant she believed in my ability to lose weight and she was willing to support me by coming back with me to shop when I lose down to a different size.

Also, thanks to my Spark People friends. Written support is very important also.

Blessings and {{{warm hugs}}} to all.

    Positive reinforcement is so important. We all need to speak to ourselves about the 'When', not the 'If'.
    You're overcoming your challenges, 1 at a time. One day at a time. One pound at a time.
