A random somebody noticed!!!!

So--I'm in the Barnes and Noble cafe tonight and the barista pulls me aside after I order. I'm thinking--oh no--I'm gonna get yelled at for not returning my magazines to the rack or something. But, she looks at me, smiles, and says, "you lost a LOT of (emphasis on the LOT) of weight didn't you." I'm not sure at this point, weather I'm supposed to be annoyed or proud. I'm proud because she is the FIRST random person to make any sort of comment about my weightloss. I'm not sure if people are afraid to say something of if people just haven't noticed. For those of you who have NOT noticed, I have lost 25 lbs at this point. Anyhoo. . . . .she wanted to know what I did and how I was doing it (weight watchers for those of you who wonder). I shared when I go to meetings and she told me she was going to join. She said I'm doing a really good job and it made her want to do something about her weight. I'm proud to know that someone felt motivated by what I've accomplished. I hope that I can continue to make myself just as proud and not need the comments from someone else to feel proud!!!!

Doesn't that make you feel good? I hate when I struggle with how to respond when someone says something to me about weightloss. I too have done WW..I'm trying a different class through my healthcare provider. I think I learned too much how to "cheat" the system at WW and needed to get my head around something different. Way to go!! and good luck in reaching your goal.

25 pounds? Dang girl, you're going to blow away with the wind if you keep that up.

But seriously, that's awesome....

Way to go, Rach! That is such a good feeling. I think it makes it even more meaningful because they don't 'know' you and they did notice.

Autumn's mom: It DOES feel good!!!!

Slick: I'm only about 1/2 way to my goal--so no blowing away in the wind yet!!!!

Ms. Mamma: I DO think that was what made it so meaningful--this was someone who would see me wander into B and N, have a coffee, and **GASP** read GOSSIP MAGAZINES!!! She knew my face and what I drank, but she didn't really know me. She didn't HAVE to notice, but she did.

You should take it as a compliment when people notice :)

Congrats Rachie. That is a great accomplishment. I wish I could lose 25 pounds and 25 years of age too!
