I love it when people comment. I keeps me motivated. The only part about people noticing that I DONT like is that then I feel like they are watching me. Watching what I eat, or watching to see if I gain back...that kind of thing.

You might not have sounded as egotistical as you think! One of the things that kicked me into gear to get my wide butt back into WW was an interview with Queen Latifa. She's not a little girl, but she's gorgeous. Ellen Degeneres started the interview by talking about Latifa's weight loss and recent breast-reduction surgury. Ellen started the next question with, "Some people have accused you of being sexy." Latifa popped up in her chair, her face absolutely lit up. That woman glowed! The audience went nuts. She turned to grin at the audience, and said in the funniest, happiest, confident voice, "Well, then I'm guilty as charged!". She didn't sound even the least bit egotistical. She was so happy and so pleased.

All I could think of was that I want to feel as happy as Latifa looked at that moment. I want to be guilty of being sexy again.
