I Finally Heard "The Magic Words" of Weightloss!!!!by Patricia Miller on 07/06/11
Well, it FINALLY happened!!!!
In a previous post I wrote about the "four magical words" that we all want to hear when we are struggling to lose those inches, "Have you lost weight?" Those words are like catnip to a cat! You just can't get enough of that "good stuff"!
I have been waiting and waiting to hear them...Don't get me wrong, I've heard some wonderful compliments like, "You're getting there." and "Your face looks thinner." (As nice as those compliments are, they just can't beat the "four magical" ones that come totally unsolicited, from a person you haven't seen in awhile.)
Here's how it happened:
About three months ago, I rented an apartment to a young lady whose mother did all the "leg-work" to find her daughter an apartment. (The daughter is an employed, hard-working student who obviously did not have a lot of "extra" time on her hands.) During the "rental process", I told them of my new "journey" with MMC.
I have to say, I liked both the mother & daughter immediately, but I was really impressed with this "mom". (Probably b/c we're closer in age.) Not only was she a loving mother, but she is naturally gorgeous and has a GREAT figure that she works very hard to keep.
Anyways, she came in this week to drop off her daughter's rent check and when she saw me she said, "Stand up!" (I was sitting behind my desk.) When I did, she looked at me with "saucer eyes" saying, "OMG! You look AMAZING!!!"
I was polite and professional with the compliment, but in my head, I was doing the "silly dance"...(like Katherine Heigl in "The Ugly Truth"!!! LOL!!!)
