Fuel


Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I saw a fellow today as I took a walk break from volunteer work with my former agency. I hadn't seen him for about 3 years. After hello, he commented that I am keeping my weight off and looking good! That was my first "keeping the weight off" compliment. Savor it. Fuel to keep going, you know?

    Words are powerful . . . just as those "fat girl" barbs lower one's self-esteem (been there since age 5) those positive comments are real esteem boosters. He probably had no idea what kind of "fuel" those words carried. I think I will my next blog on words!

    That's what keeps us going! The maintaining is actually a better compliment than the losing! emoticon

    Yes, don't think he wasn't a LITTLE surprised, too! People always say it's easier to take it off than keep it off. (Although I wouldn't know since I've NEVER hit my goal weight!)

You are an inspiration to me and I draw motivation from your continuing pursuit of running and personal bests! emoticon emoticon
