I know I haven't lost a huge amount of weight but I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise this past year. I have lost 20 lbs. since I started sparkpeople and I think I have toned up around my stomach and butt area.
and I've gone down a size. No one has commented on any changes in the past year and a half except for a good friend of mine, not family or even other friends. Now, I'm not the type of person that needs constant stroking or alot of compliments, but when you are trying to work on improving yourself its always nice to get some positive feedback here and there! Well, yesterday I bumped into an old friend who I haven't seen probably in about 8 years. She kept looking at me and saying how good I looked. That encounter made my day
It made me feel really good and gave me some motivation. Why is it that woman in general can't compliment one another. I'm not talking about here, we are all supportive of one another, but during the day to day life. People don't realize how much it could make a difference in what you are doing. I don't know if it is envy or what but its sad that people can't be happy for each other.
