You’ve lost a lot of weight!

August 8, 2009

I got three wow!-like comments about my weight loss this week.    First, I saw my aunt.   She literally said Wow!   Last time I saw her was in June when I was at 230.    Next, one of my boss’s secretaries who I have not seen in a few months told me, “You look great — you must be working out a lot!”   Then I saw one of the partners at my firm (who I sometimes see in the gym lockerroom).   Just as we were ending a brief conversation, she said, “by the way — you look fantastic!”   

Immediately after I felt great — just very happy about my progress.   Then doubt and anxiety crept in — first, what would they think if I gained the weight back?   Second, I am still fat, so how bad did I really look 4 months ago?   

Now I’m back to feeling good!

In other news: weight is around 217 and I’m still eating popcorn and ice cream.
