I was running late, it was pouring rain, I get to work and pull into my spot, my umbrella won't open, I have two large cups of ice water spilling all over the place and when I look up at the loading dock who do I see standing outside smoking but my boss. Oh great, just my luck, I start up the stairs and she comes over and comments on my new heels and then says to me, have you lost weight. OMG really? I was beyond thrilled, one because she didn't say anything about me being late and two because she is objective. If I ask my bf or friends of course they are gonna say I lost weight, my bf swears he never notices when I gain ten pounds and doesn't see when I lose it either. So I need someone who is not vested in me to make a comment I honestly believe and today I got that little gift. Her stock rose significantly today. lol It's nice to have my clothes fitting comfortably again and I don't feel deprived at all, I have a plain greek yogurt with fresh fruit everyday as a sweet treat. I gave up all bad carbs and all the processed stuff included my favorite protein bars, that I am sure was making me bloated and miserable.
