I got three compliments today

Ok, so today was a surprising day!!!

I went for my asthma injection, and as I was leaving, one of the nurses (not my regular one, but I see her all the time) said to me, really sweetly "you look like you're losing weight". So I told her... and we had a lovely conversation!!

Then I went to get my nails done, and I've been going to the same salon for 15 years. My aesthetician knows about my surgery but the other ladies don't, although I know them all. I walked in, and one of the ladies said in a loud voice "wow you're getting so skinny!" I laughed and said I have a long way to go for skinny, but thank you! But her sentiment was really sweet.

Then this evening, I met up with a gf who's been a big supporter, was at the hospital the day of my surgery and when I got home from surgery... I've seen her often. But when I walked into the bar tonight, she yelled out (people in my life are not discreet!!) "wow, you're getting so skinny!" I laughed and thought, wow, her too?! Because at almost 260 lbs no one would describe me as skinny!!!

But what I did find so interesting is that three people made comments that are "relative" weight comments... and while I can't really notice my weight loss, it must be becoming noticeable. Yay!

Thanks! I've had people close to me comment and say things like "yeah it shows" or "you look good" but to have the visceral reactions today, and so many of them, was so different!!! Yes, it felt like a flood!!

It must be great to have others see all your hard work!

Be proud of yourself lady. Each one of those pounds tell a story.
