Never in a million years....

would I have thought someone would see me as if I could be a model. As conversations go, my friend and I wound around to talking about weight loss and healthy living after another friend of mine I hadn't seen in awhile saw me and asked how many pounds I've lost. When I replied 70, both friends were surprised. We kept chattering about how I lost weight, going through the usual questions about how I did it and having to explain it was through good ol' fashioned hard work (as an aside, its a little frustrating that everyone always suggests you have lost weight by a shortcut that we all here know doesn't really work anyway!). After I explained my story, my friend asked me what my ultimate goal was, and I still have at least 50 pounds to lose. When I said that my friend was quite surprised and said "You look good now, but when you get to your goal, you're going to be one of those model types!" Maybe its an exaggeration on my friend's part (I'm not really tall enough :) ), and a small piece of me knows it, but I think this is going to be my additional motivation for some time to come!!!!
