Default someone noticed!

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!

Hooray Cat! That's the greatest feeling! You should be proud of your loss. Also, not for nothing, you should be proud that she saw you in the gym running! You go!
