So I had a visit from a lady today regarding one of my kids, but I was running late after spinning class and a quick stop at the store for some bits for dinner. I hadn't met this lady before, but we ended up getting to my house at the same time fortunately, and as I was getting the kids in from the car and getting her settled with a cup of tea, I was apologizing for running late...
Me: "So sorry if you had been waiting long, I was at the gym this morning..."
Her: "Gym? You are so slim! You don't look like you need to go to the gym!"
Me: (Jaw on the floor and near fainting with joy) "Well, that is how I got down to this size, and I love it, so I guess I still need it..."
HOLY MACKEREL!!! ME??? So slim???
Honestly? My first reaction is to laugh, because when I look in the mirror all I see are imperfections, and all of the weight that I still have to lose...but when I sat down and thought about it, Hot Damn that makes me proud of all of the hard work I have put in!
I am just going to take it as a hard earned compliment and carry on...just a bit lighter in my heart today.
Hope you all have a fab day too!!
