New Co-workers

Friday, March 08, 2013

I've had two new people start this week.. And explaining to them that I've lost 125 pounds, which is something that comes up when people ask me what I'm eating or why I keep fresh eggs at work, may save me.

It's not that I've been lost.. I've been unfocused, overworked and stressed, and reaching more and more for convenience over nutritious food.

But I still define myself as someone who chooses to be healthy. And re-defining myself to them as that person suddenly sparked a new resolve to live by that definition - its a tiny little switch that has been missing the past couple of months.

They may never know it, but my new co-workers just might have saved me-- not only from drowning in work, but from slipping away from the healthy habits I need to maintain.

    Sometimes we all have to refocus and it's surprising where that push comes from. Good for you.

    I like your positive approach. Some people could find explaining your eating habits to other people annoying or embarrassing. You chose to make it motivating. Great Job!

    Fantastic!

I recall having a conversation (er, I was actually scolding the guy) with a coworker who tried to keep plying me with a chocolate bar for some dumb reason and it also just so happened to be the day I knew I had lost 100 lbs. Had to explain that I never wanna see those lbs. again.

    emoticon Sometimes the Right Person doesn't even have to "Do" anything to provide the Spark we need!! You did the WORK, because you had the Eggs at work and you were eating 'Differently' enough that it brought up the Question from New Co-Workers. They just Fanned Your Spark.

    So many people I think would get frustrated at a situation like this, but true to Joc style you grabbed onto the positive are are propelling yourself forward. THIS is why you are successful. You rock!

    It sure helps to speak out to new folks about one's new, improved lifestyle...it's like re-committing to it again and again. Pleasant accountability! Been there done that! :-)
