"Have You Lost Weight?"

Sunday, July 06, 2014

We are visiting the in-laws in Oregon this week. Last night my mother-in-law asked "Have you lost weight? Because your booty looks smaller than it did the last time you
were here." Thanks - I think. emoticon

Then last night, on Facebook, one of my "friends" saw a recent photo of me and asked, "Have you lost weight? You look good?" Seriously - what did I look like before?

The truth is I've only lost a couple of pounds since January. I really think the low sodium diet is why people are seeing a difference. There is so little bloat now, it's amazing. So I will take the backhanded compliments with a smile. emoticon

    It's weird what people do notice when our bodies start to change, and sometimes I have noticed people who know I am working on losing will mention that I am looking like I've lost some lately (when I've actually only lost maybe a few ounces!), but I take it as the compliment they intended it to be and thank them!! Sometimes we don't see our bodies as others do, especially if they don't see us everyday, so we have to allow for their choices of compliments, but it's all good and our main job is to keep our eyes on the ball!!! emoticon

    I roll my eyes when people ask me ... I swear sometimes I just want to ask them " have you gained weight ? " lord you look so different ... sorry a bit testy today but i so understand what you are saying ... Can't anyone just say " you know what you are looking so good lately " .... I for one think you are beautiful now and then emoticon

    Take a compliment, back handed or whatever, it still counts.

    I like your new profile picture.

    When I start to lose weight I tend to show it in my face first, so everyone ask me if I'm sick? You can't win! Just take everything "with a grain of salt" then forget about it. People may not use the right words, but for the most part, I think they meal well! emoticon

    Hooray for low sodium. I have been a salt lover all my life. but really less now. I was always bloated. I didn't really get it. Great blog. Gotta love them.

    yeah - you gotta just take the compliment! I'm sure your attention to your health is showing in your appearance - even if you can't really see it yourself.
