Joining FATSECRETS in a big step for me. I like to stay in the shadows, and prefer to be recognized for being a workaholic rather than someone struggling with their weight. Reality.......people already know I have weight issues....like I can hide it (lol) I am working on a healthier me.

I didn't want to let a bunch of people in the real world know I'm dieting. It would just give them the opportunity to mock me if I failed. So I can come online and be relatively anonymous. Good luck with it!

I was the same way, but now that I have lost 23 lbs with 5 more to go, I am all about telling everyone what I have accomplished! I am sure that you will too! Good luck!

I say, tell as many people as you can stand. Makes you accountable Smile

Welcome!! I agree w/ K8 - tell as many as you want. It may suck at times when you're not doing good but having them ask you about your weight progress gives you good motivation and holds you accountable for your actions.

I only tell people who actually care about me, not just random work associates.

You took a big step a long time ago by admitting you had a problem that went beyond your ability to control alone, you had surgery. Now you are taking another step and admitting you have a problem that is beyond your control...now you need support and proper food to keep that weight off. You have come so far already you are going to succeed and your true friends and family are right there with you.

Nobody ever said on their deathbed: "I wish I would have worked more."

As an employer, I actually discourage workaholics. I much prefer people who have a balanced life. It tends to make them happier and more productive in the long run.

Life is short enough as it is. I believe an honest days work for an honest days pay is good enough. If you balanced your work with your health, I think you would be amazed at what will happen, in both your personal and professional life.
