Loving compliments

I've started to get a ton of compliments on weight loss...this is very motivating. I'm excited. People at our old church. Friends..acquaintances...(like the kids bus driver) are noticing a change. Even at Body Pump the other day I was doing a side plank and one of the other girls with whom I often take classes with complimented me on it. It's such an awesome feeling.

I have a long way to go though...but the first time I lost this weight, noone really noticed and it depressed me because how the heck can I lose 40 lbs and noone noticed!

I only have 6 hours to go for my exercise goal this quarter. I have 12 days to do it. Piece of cake. I'll be done by next week. SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF MYSELF for setting this tough goal.

Happy Saturday!


  1. Hi Jodie -
    Congratulations on how well you're doing. It is so gratifying when people start to notice weight loss, not to mention very motivating. It sounds like you're in a good place right now. I'm right behind you!

  2. I agree its so frustrating when you feel you have lost a significant amount and no one has noticed. Then they do and the compliments are so rewarding. I think generally people do notice but don't comment until the weight loss is undoubtable.

  3. GIRL!! Side planks are HARD!!!

    Awesome about all the compliments you are getting! it does suck for no one to notice but i bet they start noticing more & more now! :)
