My friend's mom who is basically my mom was talking to me on the phone today, and she interrupted the flow of conversation to say that in all of the years she's known me, she has never heard me this happy. That was one of the best comments I have heard throughout this journey. I FEEL happier and the fact that she has yet to see me (she will in a week!) but can hear in my spirit that I'm truly happy...that made me tear up. Everything is different about how I treat myself now, so I am elated to know it shines through in my voice and my attitude. It's also funny because she knew me when I was dating my first ex, the one who I was super devastated about for years after our breakup. Interesting that she feels I'm happier now...shows me I'm better off!
At the gym today, I took my friend with me. As I was squatting, no lie lol, one of the guys who lived on my floor last year came up to me and was like, "Kerissa?..." and I looked up and saw who it was and said hey. He was like, "I didn't even recognize you - you look great!" It was an awesome feeling because HE knew me at my biggest because he watched me balloon freshman year. Terribly embarrassing, but at least I got to redeem myself
He then asked me if my friend was my trainer, and I chuckled before saying I was actually hers. How funny life is.
That's my update for now, but I'll have a better one after weigh-in tomorrow. I'm hitting the sack early because it's been a long, rainy week.
