A compliment indeed!

Thursday, February 07, 2013

So I just wanted to say that I haven't been very excited about myself lately. I've got more consistent with my workout lately but not as consistent as I would like to be. I still have the additional 8 pounds that I can't seem to get rid of and it's been frustrating to say the least. Well while I was at work yesterday I ran into a friend that I had lost contact with for about 10 years or so. She walked right passed me and didn't recognize me, she then walked back in front of me and when she did this time I reached out to give her a hug. The look on her face was priceless, it took her a second but it clicked. She gave me a hug and the first words that came out of her mouth was you look great and you look so young! That got me going, I would have to say Woo Hoo! She told me, "don't look to close at me I'm a grandma for the third time, and I look it!" (No offense to any grandparents out there) The poor girl looked like she had aged an additional 10 years, she had a very stressful job and I believe it took a toll. Do you think I mentioned that to her, no way! Several times in our conversation she mentioned it and when I finally got to my car I just had to sit there and just tell myself yes, you are struggling right now but you've still accomplished a lot and who knows what she was actually saying but it came across very positively for me. After that I went to one of my other stores and one of my clerks had mentioned how good I had looked. Is all I did was complain about what I had gained back, he told me that I shouldn't be so petty about the little things but I'm afraid I'll be back to where I was before :(
Again he told me that I looked great and that I shouldn't be hung up on the "little" things!
Again I sat in my car when I left and hashed everything over in my head again. I know that I have little things to overcome again and I can do this, it just isn't working as fast as it did the first time around but I know that I'll be just fine no matter what and it's just a few pounds that won't move and I'm staying steady so I believe that is a good thing.

I hope that all is well with everyone and remember to do well by your heart after all it is heart health month!

    It sounds like you are doing well and yes - it will take us a while to lose the pounds - not as easy at certain ages especially if you are taking medication.

    It is always nice when people notice that we have lost.

    Have a great weekend :)
