I had a good October. I honored my late mother by wearing pink. I also wore my breast cancer awareness bracelets. I did another good thing for me. I walked daily. I also did other exercise. Most days I went to Curves or another exercise workout. I did this for me. I try to remind myself to try to stay healthy.
The pay off was when I weighed in at the beginning of November. I had a loss of weight and several inches. I do not normally see myself as showing any weight loss. I think of myself as a 59 year old woman - past her prime. Today when I was at Curves, a new patron looked at me. She said if you do Curves so often - I want to look like you. Wow, that one NSV meant more to me than the number on the scale. To hear someone, that I do not know, give me a compliment after all of my hard work made me feel confident. I normally count my fiber, cholesterol, protein and more on my nutrition tracker. It is the best way for me to see if I am actually eating well.
The NSV comment is going to be something that I remember for a long time. I always will take the time to tell others that they look great. Sometimes that one compliment can change a person's day.
