What have you learnt?

#3
That other people's opinions, behaviour and jealousy shouldn't affect my choices and I can be successful if I choose to be.
 
#4
I still have a long way to go, but I am learning to accept a compliment!
 
#5
That I am stronger than I thought. I can cope without food and I can do this!
 
#6
That it needs to be something you do for yourself and that the confidence and happiness you gain from achieving something that you've wanted for soooo long is life-changing.

i have learnt that i still fail on a diet . i cant help myself .... i am sort of getting back on track but annoyed that i could be so much further ahead if i hadnt wasted a few weeks. however saying that i havent put on the wt that i have lost. i just wish i had more determination and stick to it . i am weak! i am easily tempted. the only person i cheat is myself and i know that i just seem to be able to resolve it !

Sue, I know that feeling, I had 6 weeks of exactly that, well exact apart from I did regain some :) You aren't failing! You haven't given up!

I nodded lots at some of the answers so far, especially yours MrsV about learning to take a compliment! I have always been so bad at accepting a compliment and I'm getting a bit better at it now. However, even when someone says "Oooh you've lost some weight" I still reply with "I have but I've still got to lose more." Why I can't just leave it at "Yes, I have, thanks!" I don't know. lol. We'll get there in the end with the compliments thing :)

I have learnt that I do not need food to make me feel better.....
So true! In fact at the moment it makes me feel worse. I feel better now than I have done for ages and that's because I'm not pigging out like I used to. I used to think food solved my problems, it actually caused quite a few of them because of the way it made me feel about myself, which then made me react to people in a negative way.

Isn't it strange! I have sooo much more confidence since starting this diet but i find it so hard to accept compliments!! when someone says something nice i want to curl up in a ball and hide!!

I have found out so much about myself and other people on this diet....
I don't need to rely on food to get me threw life
I can be happy with my body
I'm not ugly or big boned!!
I know who my real friends are, the ones who are really happy for me but better still i know the bitter and jealous ones and its these "friends" that make me stronger and more determined to succeed!
I have much more willpower than i ever imagined
I actually love clothes shopping
My husband and all my/his family are so supportive
I could go on and on with this lol so i'll leave it there and give someone else a turn!!

That I can actually stick to a diet & that I have reserves of willpower & positivity that I never knew existed!

.....and to think I actually put off doing CD for a good few months because I just didn't think I could do it, yet now I know its not a question of IF i can get to goal, just WHEN!

Same for me. Fod was my answer to everything before, if i felt sad, upset, angry, happy, you name it i turned to food. Even with all the tough times i've had while on Cambridge and i really have felt like eating i've got through it without doing. Food is not going to make everything better, that's my new mantra :D
 
#17
That I can cook a meal (for someone else!) without tasting it, that I can make a cheese sandwich without having a slice of cheese, that I catually feel better without the glass of wine and that I do like shopping for clothes after all.

Things I've learnt:

  • That doing something for myself (eg losing weight) really makes me feel worth something
  • That 'diet' food doesn't have to be boring - and that unhealthy food isn't necessarily yummy
  • Food is not a drug, but self-confidence can work wonders
  • That people (esp my boy) get REALLY tired of hearing about diets :rolleyes:
  • That my ferret is obese - he has a BMI of 36! ;)
