People Notice You

Monday, September 14, 2009

I was at the track @ 5:30 am warming Up "Thinking Since I ran On Yesterday I Would Power Walk Today.

I Did Just That, Power Walked 5 Miles, Plus added the Bleecher Steps x 2 Sets(1,340) By 7:00 am I was Done.

I Went back to another Track Near home to Finnish my walking, after 3 Miles I Had That Urge To throw in a few Run Miles for G.P. which turned into 4 Miles. So I Continued around the Track for my cool down.
A Lady stopped me and said " I Remembered You From B.T. Track, Commenting on me How well I Look, and was Proud To See I have Started Running.

At this point I was Headed Around to the Bench to sit and drink My Water I Heard Another Voice say " Excuse Me"

There was Another Lady Comming from Across The Street, She Also Said " What A Fine Job You Have Done, You Look Terrific. She Liked the Fact That I Was So Dedicated.

She Remembered When I First Started walking and now You are running. She said" keep Up The Great Work"

~What A PROUD Moment !

    Many emoticon on your success. emoticon
It's really nice when people compliment you isn't it. It's important to lose the weight for yourself, but it's great when others notice your achievement.

    That had to be an amazing feeling. It made me feel good to hear my little granddaughter say to me, 'Nana your legs ARE getting smaller'. She was trying to exercise with me. She's 5. :-) Great job! Keep up the good work!!

    Yeah, it's nice when people notice.

I enjoyed it when the security guy at the Phily airport did a double-take on my passport and said, "Gee, you've lost a lot of weight - a LOT of weight!" Then he put his foot in it and said, "You look great! I mean, not that you didn't look good before, but wow, you look really good!" I made a face at him and cracked up.

I think he actually might have been flirting with me, which was kind of fun. LOL
