That was quite nice

Went shopping today and bought 3 tops (size s). Ordered a coffee at a cafe and noted someone next to me ordering a huge piece of chocolate cake drenched with an overflow of whipped cream and hot chocolate sauce. A Mother had ordered it for her child. Without causing offence I commented to bar staff and the Mother that the calorie count would be at least the equivalent of a main course dinner meal. The adults agreed the child would have no trouble burning it off. After the Mother and child left I said that my salad and chicken wrap "may be a little more healthy."
The bar staff said "What do you have to worry for? You look okay". I told them I have to work at it, it wasn't natural.
To get feedback that others are seeing me within a normal size range or not looking overweight is just so satisfying right now. Funny how people presume that you don't have to work at it. Am still working through a plateau and my attitude about it is improving. Today at the gym I thought "How nice it is to feel strong ,vigourous, toned, fit, healthy etc. The list goes on. The point I am trying to make is that I am exercising NOT just to lose weight as I have in the past. I exercise for so MUCH MORE!
I am so glad that I have been encouraged by the people on SP to not give up and believe in the power of correct eating and execise.
