how much attention have you been getting?????

I dont know about all of you but I have gotten tons of comments from people saying that I am loosing tons of weight. Now these are people that I never even told that I was working out and changing my lifestyle eating habits. I think that comments like that are the best motivation that anybody can get.

Second that motion

Comments like that make you feel on top of the world. I was just told that I had a pretty face when I was on a sales call, and it made me feel wonderful b/c its been like 3yrs since someone (other than my husband) has complimented me like that.

It can almost be embarrassing sometimes the way people dote on me. I'm like, enough already! But very true, a great motivator....one it feels good to hear it, and two, you know people are watching you!

I do love the compliments. I love it when people ask me how I'm doing it and then either A. Don't really listen to the answer or B. They laugh when I say it's exercise and portion control...it's like they think I'm going to say that I'm taking a magic pill.

Its true...the compliments from others are spectacular motivation..but becareful not to rely on that unkowingly, because those compliments will slow down, and suddenly that motivation is gone...trust me, I know, been through it a few times, and on my way through it again. Im trying to keep that in mind for myself!

not all good attention

With the weight loss, I have noticed all kinds of obnoxious male behavior. Twice recently I was honked at just walking down the street. What is up with that? All of a sudden it's like I have a big sign on my head that says "Girl!"

I have been getting lots of compliments since I started running - I have lost weight that I wasn't trying to loose.

Now I am afraid of gaining it back because people are so complimentary of how I look now (even though I was a healthy 130lbs at 5'5" before the training began). I wonder if I looked really bad then and that's why I am getting so many compliments, know what I mean? And if I do gain back a little weight when I ease up in training, will people think I have gotten fat?

I actually had a guy try to pick me up at the gym last night - I've never had a guy try to hit on me like that! Unfortunately for the guy, but happily for me, my husband was on the cardio machine next to mine and chased him away : )

It is an amazing feeling to have people comment about how you look, especially for those of us who haven't had a whole lot of compliments lately. I also was hit on recently. Even if you must decline, just knowing someone else thinks you look fantastic gives you a high that's better than a dip on the scale reading!

Here's a funny one: my husband's on the plan right along with me, and he's not the sappy compliment-type. I've been tossing out the fat clothes right and left, not a word. This is how he is. So I thought.

Our oldest daughter lives out-of-state, and is coming to visit soon; we haven't seen her in about a year. The other night she called, he answered and put her on loudspeaker.

"Mom? Daddy? I'm warning you guys, I put on weight. Mom, I have your butt now."

My husband takes a peek at my behind and tells our daughter, "Not anymore, Honey."

I take the compliments whenever I get them!
