Lots of Guts, No Glory

So about a month or so back I commented on how I was being very testy with people who said I looked good who knew how I was working at losing weight. Today I am wondering why noone has even noticed that I've lost almost 30 lbs. I lost the weight of one of my kids, for crying out loud!! I really don't like tons of attention, but it was just interesting to me that NOONE outside of the couple that know all the work I've been doing have said anything. Usually someone will ask. Oh well...someday soon I will get some notice for all I've done.

I'm fitting into another shirt I could not fit into when I bought it. It is very exciting for me. I've been doing really well eating within the guidelines of the dietician. I have been eating 2 fruits instead of 1 1/2, but I LOVE fruit and I figure 1/2 fruit won't do me in. Looking forward to these week's meeting with her and Thursdays meeting with the fitness trainer.


  1. well, maybe people think you'll get upset if they notice? Some people don't like it when people notice their weight. Maybe if you start making little comments about your routine and the types of foods you are eating, that might spur a comment.
    I haven't seen an updated one so I can comment ;)
    have a good week jodie.

  2. Well, we notice and we are proud of you! (Even if we don't actually see you, but you know what I mean, right?) :D You are doing terrific and I'm sure people notice and just don't know how to tell you. Keep it up!

  3. Hi Jodie,

    I can really relate to sometimes yearning for people to notice our weight loss. I guarantee it'll happen soon for you as you continue on, and maybe at a point where you really need the positive reinforcement to get through a rough patch. This has happened to me more than once.

    Congratulations on downsizing into another skirt! That's a definite non-scale victory.
