I was secretly hoping someone noticed my weight loss and today, it happened!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I keep a bowl of chocolates in my office. The good kind, not run of the mill, but high end, worth the calories kind. I do this because I am in sales and it gets people coming into my office to grab some and we always end up talking business. I never ate the chocolate. Mostly because I knew that if I had one piece, I would have 10. And if I am going to keep this there for my people, I can't go down that slippery slope. Today, one of my coworkers came in and sat to talk for a bit and, as most do, eventually reached for the chocolate. And her comment...."You aren't eating these, are you? You have really lost weight". Oh, it was the best feeling! I am no where close to where I want to be, but if felt so good to hear that I wasn't the only one who saw it. This gives me motivation for another day. And, for now, that is all I need.

    What a great feeling! Having someone notice your weight loss and saying something nice about it is the best motivation ever (that, and getting to buy new clothes, that is.). Congratulations and keep up the great work.

    I heard a survey on the radio today that said that 60% of women gain 6 pounds a year just from snacking in the office. So, first congrats on allowing others to eat that chocolate while you leave it alone! 2nd, congrats on your weight loss and someone noticing! It feels good in work or weight loss or family to have your hard work noticed and appreciated! I wanted to say thank you for commenting on my depression blog and suggesting the probiotics. I'll have to give them a try with this increase in my meds. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and give me a suggestion! ~Melissa

You must have great self control too I don't think I could leave chocolates out and not have any myself! I don't have a huge sweet tooth but chocolates (good chocolate) or ice cream total sucker for!
Thanks for your earlier comments - Tuesday was a better day, the blues were gone in the morning..
