I didn't tell my family for the first couple of weeks. I said that I had started walking and I was enjoying it but that is all.
Then after about 3 weeks I went to my parents house and my dad looked at me and said wow you've lost weight, I can see it. I just laughed and said yes, we'll I hope so, I am trying. (My dad is well meaning but is always the one to point out when I have gained weight so it's nice knowing that he noticed the loss)
From then their support has been great and help me stay on track, knowing that they will ask me next time I see them how I'm doing and if I've lost any more weight.
I don't broadcast what I'm doing, but whenever people point out that I have lost weight and ask if I'm doing anything for it I answer honestly.
I see what I'm doing as healthy lifestyle choices that I hope to keep for the rest of my life. Regular exercise and good food choices. I track everything in myfitnesspal app. Every little ing I it in my mouth goes into the tracker, as well as any exercise I do. It feels amazing just living a normal life and seeing the number on the scales fall.
