Since I've started losing weight people have started to call me "skinny" which I still have a hard time believing. It's really strange for people to start calling you something you don't consider yourself and something you never really strived to be.
I can say that I don't get a feeling of pride when I'm called it. One would think you would but I never really know what to respond to them. I normally go with "Thank you, I'm working on it." But really I'm not working on getting skinny. Not once in this journey has skinny been a goal or a thought of mine. I've always wanted to get fit. I don't care what jean size I get to or how much I weight I just want to be fit.
Yesterday at church someone said to me "You look so fit!" It was the best compliment I have received so far! I felt a surge of pride after we ended our conversation. Finally the work I was putting in was being recognized for the right reasons!
