I'm having a bit of a "down" day today. Mainly because I've been quite hungry and craving the wrong foods. Used all my Syns (SW) by about 3 this afternoon.
Anyway, it got me thinking about what happened the other day...
I was absolutely over the moon about my first weigh in on Tues. I lost 8lb.
I met up with a close friend for a coffee a couple of days after and obviously she wouldn't notice the weight loss... half a stone isn't a great difference as much as a stone would be.
Anyway... she knows I joined Slimming World and she asked how it was going. I told her about my 8lb loss and instead of giving me good feedback, I got a very blunt "you know that's just water weight don't you". At the time, I just agreed but it has played on my mind ever since. I know usually when people diet, they lose the most weight in the first couple of weeks. But I expected more than that from a long term, what I considered "good friend".
I've always been the bigger of us two, and feel like she just wants to put a downer on the whole thing. I don't know. I just feel hurt by what she said and more to the point, how she said it. I wasn't expecting a parade or anything but "oh thats good" would've been a lot more appropriate, surely.
I'm just curious has anyone else had this kind of response before or felt like people weren't supportive enough towards your weight loss....how do you actually deal with getting over it?
