Today, I hit an almost-milestone. If I were as tall as my driver's license says I am, I'd be a normal BMI!
Since the DMV doesn't do decimals, I'm actually half an inch shorter, so I have to wait another 2 pounds to actually hit this milestone, but man, it feels SO GOOD to be SO CLOSE!
I already hit a pretty cool milestone last week. I've been doing the 5% Challenges for YEARS, and for the FIRST TIME, I lost my 5%, with a couple weeks to spare! What a thrill!
Yesterday, my boss told me she doesn't like my face! I said, "What?"
She said, "I've noticed when I see you lately that you don't look happy, then I saw that you lost weight. Before, you had a face like a baby's face."
I said, "That's because my cheeks were so fat!"
"I like it better that way; now you don't look as happy." I think she meant I don't look as jolly--oh, geez.
I said, "But I'm so happy!"
She asked me to stand up and show her, so I did. She said, "It's good. I will get used to your new face."
I told her, "That's good, because I'm not going back to the other one."
When I left her office, she wished me continued luck on my regime.
I went back to my cube and laughed and laughed to my coworkers how she said she didn't like my face! What a funny, endearing thing to say. She's not a native English speaker, so she meant it to be a compliment, but she said she DOESN'T LIKE MY FACE! =)
Back to the subject of being too short, today, her secretary called me back into the boss's office. She told me that because I've lost weight, she has something for me. It's a dress her friend bought for her, but it's too short for her. For religious reasons, her clothes cover her arms and legs. So my boss gave me a dress! She can be so weird sometimes--that's such a weird thing to give your employee! But she's very cute, and it made me really happy. The dress, it's not really my style, but it's very pretty, so maybe it will be my style. I could see myself wearing it out, especially if I can get some cute boots to go with it. I hope it fits!
