Sympathy compliment?

Monday, October 28, 2013

Is it just me or do you ever wonder if people are telling you the truth when they tell you that you look like you've lost weight?!? I usually would consider it a great compliment. But not now. The reason that I ask is because ever since I had a baby I don't feel like people are saying it because it's true. Specifically, my coworkers know that I've been working out super hard and trying to get back in shape. So when my boss told me this morning that I looked like I had lost a good bit of weight, I wasn't sure if she was just saying that because she knows I want to or if it was because it's true. And maybe I'm doubting it because I haven't lost more than 5 lbs. Or maybe because I'm not really even losing inches...I'm actually gaining inches(???!) Or maybe because my clothes feel like are fitting tighter than before! So did my boss just give me a sympathy compliment or a real one?

Needless to say, I'm frustrated. I know there are things that I could be doing differently. And I eat TERRIBLY when my husband leaves for training and I know I don't have to cook for 2. It's just so much easier to grab something than to cook for just me. So that is my goal-- focus more on what goes into my mouth!! But I still feel like that can't be the only reason I'm not losing...why am I gaining inches?!

Here's to Monday-- a brand new week. A new day. A fresh start and a chance to make a difference in myself. Have a great week everyone!

    I believe that even when don't physically lose the weight but we have made changes to our bodies that other people can see them! There is times I have noticed that people have lost weight but then they say the scale hasn't moved. Losing weight involves more that just the pounds but the way we feel and look!

    keep your head up and start all over! Make sure your a priority!

    How about cooking big meals and then breaking them into single serving size for when he goes TDY and then all you have to do is heat it up for you.
