Someone Noticed My Weight Loss - How Nice!

Monday, November 19, 2012

I wrote many weeks ago how frustrating it was to have lost 20 - 25 pounds yet no one noticing except for my husband.

I went to lunch today with a friend I hadn't seen since last February. Since I saw her last I have lost 27 pounds. She saw me and said, "You've lost weight, haven't you?" She is one that never seems to gain or lose - you know, the kind that watches what she eats.

So it was a nice surprise today. It was wonderful to see her, and it was nice that my efforts are finally being recognized.

Yes, I know, I'm not losing the weight for others, and I'm not losing it to get attention. But that someone noticed just means I have another reality check that my efforts are paying off.

Keep up the good work, Sparkers. People notice!

Peace Out,

    Even though you are not doing it for anyone else it is nice to have a friend validate what you've done

    It is soooo sweet to receive a well-deserved compliment - you WORKED for that recognition so just hold it close and use it as a reminder when the journey becomes difficult. Compliments from friends are like emoticon on a cloudy day!

    Even though we are doing this for ourselves, when someone notices, it makes you feel that much better. Keep at it and great work! emoticon
