she didn't recognise me!
Tuesday, July 07, 2009
Bumped into someone today who I haven't seen for a few years. She didn't recognise me because I am now at least 40 pounds lighter. She was never overweight and told me that she had been keeping a fitness regime going despite the heavy work toll of our jobs. I used my job and family responsibilities as an excuse back then. She was quite thrown by my transformation and I felt myself reacting quite differently to her than I had in the past (much better!). Interesting meeting that was. I have had little day dreams about bumping into someone and have them not recognise me and today it happened. Not really such a big deal but still good. (Postscript: see below)
Yes it is a big deal but feel that I should I am try not to just focus on surface things (appearance) BUT feel I need to , to get to goal weight.
Feel I need to keep my inside (spirit) healthy too and a gut feeling tells me that concentrating too much on what I look like is less important than how I impact positively on others around me. Does anyone know what I mean?
