Why do weight loss compliments make me happy?

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Someone at work today told me that I my clothes looked too big on me and I felt elated! Why do weightloss compliments make use feel so good? Why can't we feel great about ourselves even when we are a size 14? I yearn for the day that I can be truly comfortable with in my skin with out needed someone to tell me how great I look.

  I think you're happy because your hard work has been acknowledged even if the giver of the compliment didn't realize it. :)

Pre-pregnancy jeans

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

It took me one and a half years to finally fit into my jeans again!! I had lost my pregnancy weight pretty quickly but my abdomen area was just not the same after having my baby. Even though that scale had shown me as weighing less then what I had weighed prior I just could not fit into my jeans. Thanks to Spark, 30 day Shred and a health diet. I was able to slip easily into them this weekend! Yay!!!

    Saw your no eating out advice, you are so right about that! It is hard to stay in the range if you're eating out often. Even when I am careful during the day, I still go over or am at the top of the calorie range. Congrats on getting back into your jeans, it is such a good feeling! emoticon

I have to imagine

Thursday, August 18, 2011

This getting in shape thing has it's ups and downs for sure. Forget the quick fixes or latest workout gadgets or classes. Now that I have a child I know that keeping myself healthy will add quality to her life and that has been my motivation. I close my eyes and try to imagine her my age with a baby. I then imagine how I will be physically @ 75. Will I be in a walker or will I be able to walk my grandchild to the park? Not only do I want to enjoy my life but I want to enjoy as much time with those that I love and make that time the best it can be for all of us.

Someone noticed!

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I'm so excited a co-worker of mine who I have not seen in about three weeks told me that I look thinner! When I told her how frustrated I was with the lack of change on the scale she said to me, "Just keep doing what your doing, because what ever it is it is working".

Isn't it great when you get motivation from someone or something when you totally were not expecting it?
