The BEST Compliment

Monday, January 28, 2013

Since I've started losing weight people have started to call me "skinny" which I still have a hard time believing. It's really strange for people to start calling you something you don't consider yourself and something you never really strived to be.

I can say that I don't get a feeling of pride when I'm called it. One would think you would but I never really know what to respond to them. I normally go with "Thank you, I'm working on it." But really I'm not working on getting skinny. Not once in this journey has skinny been a goal or a thought of mine. I've always wanted to get fit. I don't care what jean size I get to or how much I weight I just want to be fit.

Yesterday at church someone said to me "You look so fit!" It was the best compliment I have received so far! I felt a surge of pride after we ended our conversation. Finally the work I was putting in was being recognized for the right reasons!

    I know how you feel. My boyfriend calls me his "Skinny pants" all the time and even though I've lost 100lbs I've still got quite a bit to lose before I consider myself skinny. Skinny is not a goal for me either, feeling great in my body and looking good (to me) in clothes is my goal. I know he loves me big or small and he thinks he is doing something good, expressing his feelings and showing love. I should ask him to call me his "fit pants" or "slimmer pants" or something along those lines lol!

    Keep it up!!

    People think we want to hear that. Sometimes they are jealous. I think that being called fit is a great compliment too!
