I find this title statement to be true. Although in my head, I think people are embarrassed for me, ashamed of me, think badly of me for the weight gain, it's really myself who thinks these things.
Most people are encouraging, have a "you can do it" attitude and just see me, who came through a very very hard year.
Is it narcissistic to think others are thinking about you? I'm not sure. I'm such a people pleaser, I hate thinking I've let anyone down. But the reality is the only person I've let down is myself. Not my husband, not my kids, not my gym instructors - JUST me.
And so it is.
