I don't know a lot of people where I am since we just moved here a little bit ago. So I don't really have anyone to say oh wow, you're doing a great job and my husband is deployed, so my #1 cheerleader isn't even here to fluff my ego. But, a friend of mine who saw me right when we moved here (I stayed with her for two weeks) came to the gym today while I was running and sent me an email telling me I look so different and that the running is really paying off! That made my entire week because I have been struggling with the fact that I haven't lost much weight (8 pounds).
It makes me want to work harder, to know that someone else notices a difference. I'm not losing weight for anyone else but me, but I am my own worst critic and I don't see changes until major weight is lost. So it was great to have an ego boost today!
