This is my very first blog.
I am soooo happy that I have actually gotten a "weight loss" compliment! While taking my mother-in-law for a monthly appointment, her doctor asked if I had lost weight! I said that, yes, I had lost about 20 lbs. but still had a long way to go (at least 70 more). She said she noticed it in my face and that she gave me a lot of credit for losing this time of year. I told her she had made my day! I felt so great (and still do). Considering this is a person I don't see too often, it was so kind of her to mention it to me. When I was tempted by my freshly baked Christmas cookies the next day, I stopped and thought about her compliment. Imagine when I lose even more? I have decided that I should also go out of my way to compliment someone so I might make someone else feel better about themselves.
I did not make this public until now. I am proud to say I have now lost 30 lbs.! Love this SparkPeople site!
