This is why I post like a freakin' lab rat pounding on a treat lever...

Sunday, October 23, 2011

It's all about the ripple (and boomerang) effect! A note I just got from an old friend:

Hi Hilary,

I have to tell you that I'm so so so impressed by you, not just by your weight loss and by all of the discipline that it took to get there, but also by all of the joy and pride that come through in your posts. I absolutely love it. It seems like you love yourself, and wow - what an accomplishment that is in and of itself.

Every time I read one of your posts, I am joyful and proud of you, and I just love you so much! You are contagious and inspiring. Thank you for that.

I have lost some weight recently myself (and am still in the process) and you definitely deserve some of the credit for my weight loss! My scale, mirror, and clothes thank you!!!

Congratulations on all that you're accomplishing. Don't underestimate the ripple effects!!!
ROARRR!!! Love you, too, my dear and darling friend! xoxox emoticon

    Isn't it wonderful when someone not only notices, but is inspired by our efforts?

    I was just telling someone about the whole "rat pounding on the lever thingy" - I love that analogy. I also love the encouragement I've been getting from this and from posts like yours.
