I had an interesting conversation with my Mum today. I went to visit my parents (my usual Sunday morning ritual) and while my Dad was cooking a roast (another Sunday ritual!) my Mum asked how my weight loss coaching was going. I told her I feel like it’s really helping me recognise why I overeat, so I’m finding it easier to combat those feelings. I said I also feel like it’s given my confidence a boost as I can recognise a difference there too. My Mum told me that she can really see a difference in my confidence too, and that I seem a lot happier than I was this time last year. I know everyone can see the physical difference due to my weight loss, but I was surprised that the changes in my personality were so obvious too. It made me realise how much being overweight was making me miserable, but now I feel like I have a whole new lease of life. I’d also had a brief conversation with my brother yesterday about my weight loss, and it was a surprise when I realised that I physically feel so much better having lost weight. Sciatica has troubled me for the past 5 years, as well as lower back problems due to arthritis, but since I began my weight loss journey, I’ve had no problems whatsoever. So it’s not just my physical appearance that is changing, it’s also my health and my confidence that are getting a boost too.
