Today I saw one of my Mom's friends and she said I looked awesome and I felt so great because of it!
One of the greatest encouragements was actually last year when I dropped down to 177 lbs. One of my brothers who rarely gives out compliments and is very honest told me that he could tell I had lost weight but what was most striking was how pretty I was. I was never really thin as an adult so I really do not know what I would look like as a thin woman. I seriously almost cried that was like the greatest compliment.
