People always assume I'm naturally thin as well. Although, I don't blame them. I eat so well during the week but I do splurge (a lot!) on weekends on special occasions. So most people outside of work only ever see me eating badly!

Strong is the new skinny!!

YOU NEVER KNOW really the INSIDE story.

( The only way to know, what is at the bottom of
the pot, is to be the spoon that stirred the soup)

Very Old French saying.

I think it is more the I could never lose the weight mentality that people have to assume those that are thin are naturally there, and not that they just achieved a major milestone to get there.

The "if you only knew" thought is the best. Love your success! Chantix helped me quit the smoke thing :)

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

I hear you on the "If you only knew" part of your story. Someone at work stopped me on my break while I was doing my walking. And they asked how much I walk a day and after I told them, their response was "It's not like you have to worry about your weight." Haha! My exact thoughts were, if you only knew how much I've worked to get to where I am!

I am sure you achieved your physique after a lot of hard work.
Maintain it, cigarette certainly is bad.

LOL - Honestly, though, I get a little irritate when people assume I'm "naturally skinny." uh - HELLO?! Lots of work went into this, don't just dismiss it or assume!

Still, behind the irritation is a little smile on the inside!

Another Aha! moment!

A good time to Share The Spark too!

The cigarette is not good, but the hot chocolate hopefully was very good!

Shivering outside my work place having a cigarette (I know) and half a cup of hot chocolate. A customer started talking to me and said she does not drink hot chocolate because it is too fattening,but you don't have to worry. I smiled thinking if only you knew why I was only drinking half a cup.
