So said a friend I ran into in the grocery store today whom I hadn't seen in over a year. I told her I'd worked hard to get to where I am, and she said she thought I'd looked good before. (35 pounds ago!)
Really? I'd been feeling pretty happy with my size. All of a sudden I was wondering if I looked like a walking skeleton...except for my tummy, of course. lol. It refuses to quit being an aggravation. (I hope she thought she was being complimentary to me or showing concern for my health. She's NOT at all a mean person.)
I came home and asked my husband if he thought I looked emaciated. He said "No, but I'd worry if you lost any more."
I'm not planning to lose more. I'm trying to build muscle while maintaining at 125. I've kept it within 2 pounds up or down of my goal for 3+ months now. I am happy with my energy level, endurance and flexibility, and my strength is growing slowly. I'm going to listen instead to the voice of another friend who saw me Saturday for the first time in a year and said "You look great!"
