I got the BEST compliment ever!
Okay, so my family and I just got back from visiting and vacationing with a friend in Oregon (we live 6+ hours away from her). The friend we were visiting is someone that I consider to be my best friend. She has known me at both my lowest and highest weights. Recently she moved away from us and I really wish we lived closer now.
Anyway, during our vacation my SO told me that my friend had made some awesome comments to him about me. She said stuff like "THIS is the girl I remember!" and "She is really beautiful, confident, and oh so cute!"
It just made me want to tear up when my SO told me all this stuff that my friend said because lately I REALLY feel much more confident and pretty. I haven't felt like myself in a long time and I'm finally starting to feel like the person I was before I had a baby and spent many painful....long...years... in college where I ate anything and everything in order to stay awake to get good grades.
I just felt on top of the world when I heard my friend's comments. It makes me want to keep on going with my workout plan/schedule and eating right because I don't want to go back to how I felt before I started losing weight.
Thanks for letting me share ladies! I just wanted to point out that even if you don't see the progress you are making.. your friends might see it. =) We all need to keep on going until we reach our goals =D
