Skinny Minnie!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I get my eyebrows done every 4-5 weeks, always with the same amazing aesthetician. Tonight when I walked in, she yelled "let me see that shirt - you look like a skinny minnie! What have you been doing?"

Wow, what an unexpected greeting! Since I'm fighting hard to get BACK down to where I was before my knee injury, I haven't really been paying attention to my appearance. I have a number in my head, and until I reach that number, I guess I'm not expecting improvements. In my mind, I look the same. But you can't lose over 20 pounds and not look a little different, I guess.

I still have 13 pounds to go to get back to where I was before, but maybe I should take some time to notice those roses along the way.

    Sometimes it takes someone else to notice for us to realize our hard work.

    To many times I think a lot of us focus WAY to much on that little number. But we seem to forget the other ways our bodies are changing like the way our clothes are fitting, our energy levels, body fat, etc....

    How awesome to have that reminder in such a nice compliment. You go girl!!! You skinny Minnie.....
