I'd like to preface this with the fact that I am not a superficial weight loser. HOWEVER today was the first day on my journey I was asked if I've lost weight.
I hugged her (it's cool we're friends).
It is just so nice to be validated. I know that 17 pounds isn't a lot and quite frankly I was feeling discouraged yesterday (weigh day). It's not that I think 17 pounds is bad, I just know you can't see a physical difference - nothing is roomy as far as clothes and I'm still carrying quite a bit of excess jiggle (very distracting). So to hear someone comment on my physical appearance was its own reward.
It's nice to get out of my head once in a while and my first sighting was exactly that.
