People are Starting to Notice (Finally!)
Wednesday, May 21, 2008
One of my frustrations has been that no one at my office has commented on my weight loss. I mean I've lost 25 pounds, like 15 percent of my body weight. Finally one person last week said "you look skinny today." I couldn't help myself and said something like "oh, as opposed to yesterday..." It's not like I suddenly lost weight one day. I've been working on this for almost 11 months!
But I got what I needed at the end of last week when I dropped by my old job (which I left just before I started losing weight--in fact my leaving that job is what allowed me to make progress on my weight loss) to eat cake (yes, the irony is that the following happened when I was struggling with my eating). Several people commented on my weight loss. Here are a couple of the memorable ones: "You look like you've lost a ton of weight." And when I mentioned to one person that I hoped to lose another 10 pounds, she said "Really? You look great now."
Just what I needed to rededicate to the home stretch!
