I walk about 2 miles each day five days a week (to and from work). I must pass by many people each day, some walking others driving. I had the most unusual encounter the other day on my way home though and it sort of brought home the progress I have made. An older gentlemen stopped me as I was walking down the road. At first I thought he was going to ask for directions. Now I never get close to any car that pulls over for safety reasons. Anyway, he noted that he had seen me walking all the time for the last six or so months and he said he was very impressed. He stated in as polite a way as he could that he noticed the weight loss I had experienced and again how impressed he was at how good I looked. I must admit I have never had a comment like that from a stranger on the street. Family has said how good I looked as well as my coworkers, but never just a random person. Needless to say I was shocked, but I quickly recovered, thanked him politely and we parted ways.
Just an unusual encounter but another little motivator to keep moving towrd my goal.
