Tonight I had a friend come up to me and tell me I looked "skinny". Keep in mind I have an 18 month old, and up until a month ago I had only lost about 15 pounds of the 45 pounds I gained with him. So, when she says "skinny" you must take it with a grain of salt!
Still... I'll take that!
I hadn't told her that I was cutting my calories and working my rear-end off, and hadn't seen her in a few weeks, so it was a ha-uuuuuuuge compliment coming from someone who didn't even know I was working at it! You know what I mean, huh Girls? It's one thing when you get a compliment from your husband or someone who knows you're working at it (because they feel obligated to say, "you look greeeeeat!"). It's in a totally different ball court when you get a compliment from someone who doesn't know!
Thank you, Brooke! You made my day!
