How supportive are your family members/partners/friends etc of your weightloss efforts?
I get the odd supportive comment. Most of the time they come when I really need them.
My partner tries... sometimes lol. Although it annoys me when we go shopping and he stocks up on apple pies, cream, snack biscuits, dips etc etc.. When he buys me things, take a chocolate bar for example, he'll get the lite version (mars lite). He's learning, I'll give him that much lol. And tonight he said to me "So, when is weigh in this week?" He asked that cos "I was just taking an interest". Mind you, he just came into the room where our computers are, Jatz and dip in hand and I said to him "I hope you choke on your biscuits" Isnt love grand?
Mum and I discuss weight loss pretty often. She's on Weight Watchers at the moment. Always full of 'good girl, keep it up' messages
My sisters come to me for weight loss advice now. Not that Sister number 1 has to lose weight - but she asks about exercise. It makes you feel wanted though lol.
As for Dad, he bought me an exercise bike for my birthday (I asked for it - he wasnt trying to suggest anything). We have discussions about weightloss (he's overweight and diabetic). I wish he would listen though
When I run into other family members and friends they are supportive as well.
I think its the support you get from loved ones that can really help you keep going
