that make life good!
In the last 2 days I've gotten some really nice, unsolicited, compliments from family and acquaintances.
I look/seem thinner to them. I guess my face looks thinner for some reason so they've been asking if I've lost weight. I haven't, but I'll take the compliments anyway! I figure it's a start, even if the scale isn't moving anywhere. :)
I'd like to say it's from exercising and eating better, but I don't think it's true. Not the exercising part anyway. I've only been doing that for the last 2 days, because that's when my back finally started feeling well enough to do anything.
I think it's because I don't drink soda like it's water anymore and because I'm not stressed by my former job or mindlessly eating candy all day from the boredom of it. It's amazing what not being at a lousy job can do for a persons health!
Yeah, yeah, I know I should be all upset about being laid off and worried about money and stuff, but honestly I've been quite content, relaxed and not bored for the last few weeks and I think that's what led to me seeming thinner. And the best part now is .... the patience is paying off. There's some much better jobs that were just listed that I'm going to apply for. And I'm going to see about doing something virtual. The kids really like having me home in the afternoons so I'm going to see if there's anything available in that area as well.
So, in short, my world is definitely getting better - baby step by baby step!
