100 lb. Club - Had someone call me an inspiration yesterday! Really?

I went to the local goodwill yesterday to look around. The lady behind the counter that I have seen many times there said every time I come in I keep looking better and better. I just look like my fat is melting away. She then asked how I was doing it, and I said watching what I was eating and working out. She then said You are such an inspiration. I just smiled and said thank you. But inside I was saying really? This is soooo hard sometimes, and I'm not perfect, I give in to food desires at times.

But I'll take it the compliment. Having someone say that to me helps inspire me to keep going....

Just wanted to share. :)

the goodwill lady isn't the only one who sees you as an inspiration, but it's great that she was moved to say so to you in person!

Wow! How wonderful of her to say so. That's a hard thing to do, not knowing how the other person will respond.

Awe.....thank you sooooo much ladies! :hug:

I've had other ppl in my family mention my weight loss, and even some family friends who have mentioned that they notice I have lost weight, but I was never called an inspiration by someone I just knew, but wasn't overly close to. It was nice to hear, and it does motovaite me to continue on this journey.

That is so cool! You have lost 86 pounds, you deserve to be called an inspiration!

You are an inspiration and for every person who says it, there are plenty more who feel the same way but keep that thought to themselves.

Sometimes people feel awkward giving a compliment, so trust me, there are LOTS of people who you are impacting. :)
