Sunday Evening Compliment and Monday Morning Weigh-in

Monday, March 04, 2013

emoticon I lost another pound.
As always I was hoping for a little more. But I know it gets harder as time goes on and ones weight is less.

However....I had an unexpected compliment last night from my DH. He has said nothing about the way I look since I started back on SP at the beginning of Jan.
He has said tho'...that he is proud of me for sticking so well to a healthy eating program...and for getting out and walking alot.
That has been a great support for me.

The compliment came when I was standing at the kitchen sink, preparing veggies for a salad for last night's dinner.
He was standing in the doorway, (my back was to him)....he said, "You're getting skinny!"
I was surprised, but stayed calm and decided to ask him why he said that.
He said my butt was smaller and that my jeans were getting baggy around my butt.

I didn't react hardly at all....almost afraid to...I really didn't know how to react as I NEVER!!! have had a compliment like that in my life.

But what did happen, was the feeling inside me literally filled me with satisfaction and contentment. I stood there with a little smile on my face, I thanked him for saying it, and went on preparing the salad.

I was afraid of spoiling the moment.....I realized that I don't know how to take compliments like that. It is such a positive verification of what I am doing here on SP. I continued making dinner in such a mood of renewed purpose.

To top it off, these jeans are ones I bought when I was at my lowest weight (160lb.) three years ago....and they are a size 16. emoticon
Just over 2 months ago I was wearing a size 22.

So even though the scales are not as dramatic as I would like....the actual results
are in the eye of the beholder.

Here's to another week of progress for all of us! emoticon

Thank you Chris (Sparkguy)
