A Compliment from my Dad

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Today after a joyous Easter service at Church, my husband and I went to my sister's home where 15 of our family members gathered to eat a jointly prepared meal together

During the course of the day, my Dad, who has seen me every week since I began my weight loss venture 31 pounds and 4 sizes ago, came up to me and said that seeing me in a dress really emphasized how much weight I'd lost. He told me that I'd have to run around outside to cast a shadow. emoticon Lol. He said it with pride, to encourage me. If I'd realized dresses showed off the figure better than jeans and a top, I might have worn one before now!

So nice to be noticed even when I'm not still losing! I've been maintaining for a week now!

    That's SO very nice! It's funny how we always crave our parents' approval, no matter how old we get! I'm the same way -- maybe it's because that generation believed saying nice things to their kids gave them "big heads". How nice of your dad to speak up, you certainly deserve the praise.
