Great NSVs, ladies!! You both get pats on the back!
Here is mine. Last Memorial Day weekend I went to an out of town event where someone asked me if I was....pregnant! (Grrrr....) At that time I was on 3FC and actively trying to lose weight. I had lost a few pounds and was feeling good, but that all changed in a hurry!
This weekend, I went to the same yearly event, and the same woman who made the remark kept coming over to me and telling me how great I looked! In fact, a number of people came over to me - some said I looked thinner, some couldn't quite tell what the change was but said I looked younger or less tired than the last time they saw me. Anyway, even though I had been feeling fat and frustrated with the scale not budging and my eating being off plan all weekend (plus my period about to happen), it made me remember how far I have come from last year to this year.
I am so glad that I didn't give up the fight last year after that discouraging comment about me being pregnant! I am glad I used it as motivation to keep going. I need to get back that motivation to keep going now, so that next year, I can think back to how far away my goal seemed this year and how happy I am that I didn't give up and was able to reach it!
