Weight loss support
Latest UK government guidelines tell us to distance ourselves physically from our loved ones due to COVID-19. So understandably, more of us are turning to online communities and forums for support. And it makes sense, right? Many of us aren't (and have never been) comfortable with opening up and sharing our body struggles with others in person. Face to face conversations about sensitive topics can feel awkward, stressful and leave us feeling a bit embarrassed when we admit that we overindulged with a cheeky takeaway last night when we knew we shouldn't.
Face to face conversations come with a certain pressure and vulnerability that most of us just aren't comfortable with. Take that same conversation online and we're instantly more comfortable with it. Confessions of how we're struggling to stay on track become easy and we're suddenly able to be open and honest with others and ourselves. Speaking from behind the safety of our phones and keyboard allows us to be more vulnerable than we normally would. But why does that matter? Being honest with ourselves helps us to communicate our needs and wants clearly to others and that is beautiful. And when you're honest with yourself, others can help you get what you need.
