My sister-in-law posted on Facebook that she would no longer share her weight loss goals or achievements. You know how Facebook shows you posts from previous years? An old post where she announced a major weight loss goal made her realize she was posting for attention. She decided that she needed to stop validating herself by sharing everything and getting excited by the number of like she got.
Instead she decided to make the changes just for herself. She wouldn’t post her weight loss goals, her wins, her losses, but instead celebrate them herself. She recognized that she wants to change for herself and doesn’t want to rely on what other people say.
I agree with her thinking. While I’ll share the occasional post about methods, I’m not interested in sharing my goals or pounds lost. I want to do this for me, not for recognition.
