A friend of mine has been trying to lose weight.(I gave up years ago!)
She has been using a personal trainer, and dieting hard, and really truly trying.
She is looking great in my opinion, but I noticed something. Another friend saw her for the first time in ages, and said “the diet is working well so far, keep it up!”
Now on the surface, this seems to be a fairly postive thing to say, but when you think about it, what she has just said is “You are not good enough yet, keep trying”.
I started to notice just how often we are told by our friends, family and the media to keep trying we are not there yet.
I wonder will any of us ever get to that mythical there, or should we start being happy with what we have….
