SUNDAY JANUARY 9,2011
HERE'S WHAT I WANT
You'll discover the secret to getting exactly what you want from all the support people in your life. But before you're able to let others know how to provide support and encouragement, you first have to decide what you want.
Think carefully about your true preferences. Decide what motivates you as well as what frustrates you.
WHAT I WANT FROM YOU
1) If you see me eating something that's not on my diet plan..........
A) Ask me, "Should you be eating that?" (Even though I hate this)
B) Ask me, if I've had a bad day
C) Give me a hug!
2) When I'm making progress such as losing weight...............
A) Compliment me on how I look

4) When I'm making progress you can't see (such as improving my self-esteem)....
A) Ask me how my efforts are going
B) Compliment me on how I look
