Today a woman who I am acquaintances with at work came up to me and asked if I had lost any weight. When I told her that I did, she said she could really notice. This was so incredibly uplifting to hear, not to mention it really made my day! She also asked how much I have lost and how I did it. I told her about my diet and fitness plans that I have been sticking with.
I know my family and my boyfriend have told me that they can tell I'm losing weight, but I think it just means so much more when someone who really doesn't even need to say anything takes the time to give that compliment. Also, while I know that the weight is coming off and I know my clothes are fitting better, sometimes it's hard for me to actually see a difference in the way I look. Probably because I have been seeing the gradual change, not like this woman who hasn't seen me in several weeks. Talk about a confidence boost! I sure did feel a whole lot thinner today.
And it was a big motivation boost. I can't wait to start my workout today, no need to force myself to do it this time! I also decided to reward myself by taking some update pictures when I reach the 20 pound mark and compare them to my before pictures I took when I first joined SparkPeople. I am really excited to see the clear differences in the two sets of pictures!
