"You look more and more like a ... "

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Todays' conversation with an older lady at church:

"You look more and more like a teen-ager every day. You look so young since you lost the weight."

I didn't tell her that I turned 51 yesterday.
I also didn't tell her that I had purchased the cute little skirt I was wearing this morning out of the size 16 section on the GIRLS 7-16 rack. (I wear a size 6 Women's. They are about the same. But, the girls' clothing is sometimes less expensive; and, cuter!)

It is comments like this that I have to replay in my head on those days when I'm tired of the permanent lifestyle changes that are involved with maintaining my weight loss.

    Oh now, you have given me a tip! I will go shopping in the girls section next time. I'm so short (5' 2") that it would likely work for me! Congrats on eliciting such a nice compliment. :D
