In response to a great blog today, dealing with compliments, absolutely nailed it for me. Here is my response, and how I am dealing with everyday life......
All of your blog "nails it for me, and so many others." We, I, struggle with compliments, mainly because we, I, still have that "OLD GAL VISION" of what we looked like before. But you have to understand, I was ALWAYS Morbid Obese, I never was a smaller size, in my youth, tweens, teens, or much of my adult life.

So just trying to "get to ONEDERLAND" would be the most exciting thing for me. Being healthy, onederland, even though BMI still off the charts, because I am 4'11, but smaller, more "LOOKING LIKE THE AVERAGE SMALLER GAL" would be amazing.....and so I continue to work on a healthy lifestyle!
Diet, no way, but Consistent Healthy Eating, to the best of my ability, adding exercise at least 30 minutes a day, minimum, most days over 1 hour, and THIS GAL is living the best I can, doing the best I can, and will continue to "LIVE THE LIFESTYLE!"
