I have a new Best Friend
Wednesday, September 16, 2009
Ok not really, but for an instant today I did consider bumping a coworker up from casual acquaintance to my bestest friend forever. The lovely woman looked up from her desk as I was passing by and said those magic words : "You look like you've lost weight!" I expressed by gratitude in a non-gushing way externally, internally it was all cartwheels and fireworks.
She didn't stop with the just the one compliment though. She went on to say she could see it in my face and collarbones and my waist was looking so trim and... wait for it...my butt looked smaller and firmer too! You can see why I was feelin' the love, right? We'll just bypass the thought that she looks at my bum often enough to notice such details...
I was totally floating back to my desk and just as thrilled as I can be. Yes, I've changed my food/exercise lifestyle for myself but it's awfully nice when someone else notices the effects too!
Validation is inversely proportional to motivation for me - a little can go pretty far :) I'm so excited to get to the gym tomorrow!
