NSV - I Didn't Recognize You...

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I was at the grocery store tonight and I saw a casual acquaintance. We smiled at each other and gave that little nod that you do when you see someone you know. A few minutes later I ran into her in another part of the store. She grabbed my arm and said "I didn't recognize you at first! You've changed so much!" She then went on to tell me she thinks it's great how much weight I've lost and that she thinks I'm "looking good."

Tell ya what...I smiled the whole time I was in the store.

    Wahay! Hold onto the way it made you feel and remember it because it will come in handy when you're feeling down and hopefully you can use it to perk yourself back up.

I always think it is funny that people are hesitant to comment on weightloss for fear of offending you, but man, if you think I lost weight, I for sure want to hear it!
