Getting Feedback

So, today I got my first comment on my weightloss and thought immediately of all of you. I smiled really BIG simply because my first thought was, “I can post about this now!” Hee!

I saw a new business partner I’ve seen every six to ten days for the past five weeks or so. So, she’s seen me losing weight, I guess, but it wasn’t until today’s meeting that it clicked for her “enough” to say anything. She was hugging me hello and then pulled back and said, “You’re losing weight!”

I said (with that big, “I get to post on that thread now” grin), “Yes, I am!”

She asked, “All the stress?” (Because she knows our business venture has involved its stresses, of course.)

“Oh, no,” I replied. “It’s intentional. I’m working at it.”

To which she replied, “But you always look so good anyway.”

And I said, “Yeah, I’m always ‘lookin’ good,’ but now I’m lookin’ better.”

(I was SHOCKED at how egomaniacal I sounded!! But I was laughing and having fun with it and just thrilled to be able to test out the “how do comments feel” question with someone who said exactly the right thing–that I already looked great, but that the weightloss was noticeable.)

Anyway, so apparently, I was in a really great place at that moment and that’s how I took the comment on my weightloss. We all shared a laugh and that was the end of the conversation. No one cared what I was doing or how I was making it happen, just that I was happy with it… and that was a really cool feeling.

Happy to be feelin’ good!

  1. Thanks for all the comments. BistroMD was touted on Biggest Loser tonight and it was great to hear your comments, especially since I am looking at a similar diet as yours. Please keep the blog going because it’s most helpful in making a decision. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the feedback, MeanG. So glad the information is useful as you make your decision. I missed “The Biggest Loser,” so I wonder what they said about BistroMD. I’m finding I wish it had variations for things like “monthly cravings” or needs for more calories based on certain stress factors, working out, or–again–the monthlies, but other than that I’m just so dang pleased.

    Let me know what you end up trying out and how it works for you. I figure I have enough weight to lose that I can try quite a few programs and share my experiences with them all, really. :)

    Good luck to you!
