Mission 40: Learn To Say No – To People
We learned in Mission 2: Take a Reality Check that losing weight has a price. Saying yes to your weight loss means saying no to other things and to other people’s priorities, at least some of the time.
And if the people in your life are especially demanding, then it may mean saying no rather a lot of the time.
Sometimes you’ll help out, of course.
But if you come last on your priority list much of the time, then you need to realize the effect this may be having on your weight-loss success.
Before long, you forget what your priorities even are. They get lost in the maelstrom of everyone else’s needs.
It may be time to start saying no.
But how do you do that, without feeling like a big ole meanie? Without sounding harsh?
Let’s find out.

Our group responses are: We agreed to volunteer later & afterward I will go the gym as planned
We courteously said no to eating at a buffet [too much bad food temptation] instead we will agree to eat at a healthy restaurant
Goal: to continue exercising and losing weight
As you lose weight you’ll gain energy to reach other goals we have set for ourselves so you’ll have
more to give others
If you have friends/roommate, they’ll benefit from an excellent role model for persistence, goal setting, health and wellbeing – not to mention assertiveness!
Learn To Say No Courteously
Remind yourself that you’re saying no in order to say yes to your priorities
Do not say yes to an invitation if you don’t agree with the organization or the invitee
I always had problems saying no to people, especially for food. Now that I am on this new path, I found it easier. I have a good support system so they don’t push the buffets on me, they respect my choices.
BENEFITS AREN’T JUST FOR YOU.
Be able to hold your ground.
We repeatedly agree to work late or planned event, instead of going to the gym as we’d planned.
I’m not available due to another commitment.
And you’ll have more respect for yourself and it’ll boost your morale.
You’ll be happier, which boosts productivity at work and home and whatever you do/planned or you’re routine.
Living your own Life: Follow doctors’ orders otherwise do not let any other persons tell you what you should be. Don’t let parents tell you what you are going to be when you’re an adult.
LEARN TO SAY NO COURTEOUSLY.
I’m sorry I already have other plans and thanks for thinking of me.
Sorry I have other plans.
Advocacy; negotiating; peer support; computer skills; communication.
No to invite but thanks for asking.
Being open-minded to request other obligations and change your priority to another time.
Show some respect, be courteous, leave lines of communications open when you’re saying no.
