Noticed at last

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Sometimes ,I feel down and wonder why I am doing this, nobody notices it anyway. Boy was I wrong. A couple of the ladies I clean for made some nice comments to me about I was looking good ,and how much had I lost, I was really toning up.. This made me feel good, but I thought they were just being kind because they knew I was trying to lose weight . So the other night I was sitting on the sofa watching TV with hubby and out of the blue he said," You are doing something right." not knowing what he was talking about I said "What are you talking about?" " Stand up look at your butt," I said " I can't turn my head around." he said " You think I don't notice you, well I am telling you , you are beginning to look hot, your butt looks hot." I about hit the floor, this coming from one that has not shown me support. This morning I stepped on the scale and he said "What's the verdict , I told him and he asked what are you trying to get down to. When I told hi he smiled. The thing about it , before I was trying to lose ,he just said it is more to love. Now I know he didn't want to hurt my feelings,, he does support me ,he just don't show it, well until now. Anyway the next day I went by my Dad's and he said as I was getting in my car, that I looked good in the jeans I had on, that I looked liked I had lost some of the backside. After that I went to my daughter's , she smacked me on the butt, and said, "It is getting smaller Mom. I can tell." Then when my granddaughter came home she said,"Mamaw , you look good in those jeans , and you are losing some of your booty." It was a Great week of encouragement and inspiration. And for the jeans,it was a pair I hadn't been able to ware for a long time. emoticon What a difference a pair of jeans and a few pounds can make. emoticon
