Somebody Called Me Skinny Today!

Monday, August 29, 2011

I was leaving my office today to get a coffee before a meeting when I ran into the undergraduate coordinator for the Aerospace Engineering department. I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks so it was nice to see her. She asked about my husband (after all, she did deal with him for eight years!) and we discussed how he'd left New Orleans just to end up in Connecticut with hurricanes (irony of ironies!). In the conversation she called me skinny! :D

Now, I know I'm not as skinny as I could be, nor am I as skinny as I will be but it's nice for somebody who hasn't seen you in a while to notice! WooHoo!

And another friend of mine who sees me about twice a week noticed that I'm getting smaller. Actually, he (notice it's a he...) asked if I'd gotten taller. Of course not. I haven't grown in years! However I look taller because I'm losing inches (that's what he said when I told him I haven't grown taller...).

Also today I had to put on a pair of jeans I've never worn before because my current favorites are too large and I can't deny it anymore. :) It kind of makes me sad as I haven't nearly worn out the favorites but at the same time, I'm about to go on vacation this weekend and it gives me a reason to buy more jeans (as I only have 1 pair that fit now).

All this said, I weighed in today and I hadn't lost any weight. Now, I haven't gained but I haven't lost. I was a little bummed about it until two people noticed my efforts.

Lesson? It's not all about weight (I KNOW this but I tend to forget sometimes) and I NEED to start measuring again!

I know some people don't like it when others notice that they've lost weight, but I sure do! How about you? Does it bother you when people comment on your weight loss?
