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!
