#97: Someone asks “Have you lost weight?”

#97: It makes my day when………….. Someone asks “Have you lost weight?”  

Now I’m not actively trying to lose weight but is there any other sentence that instantly boosts you self-esteem more than this line? Even if it’s not true, it is certainly nice to hear.

The week before last I was asked this question by 3 different people and while my initial reaction was to instantly say “No, I don’t think so” I will admit that I was rather pleased with myself and have identified that training for a ½ marathon with only 6 weeks preparation is probably likely to lead to a calorie deficit & ending up a few kilos lighter.

I did have to ignore the secondary thoughts of “Did I look bigger last time they saw me then?” and now that I am not training as much, the comments have stopped. But maybe that’s got more to do with the empty chocolate packets in my bin?

Oh well, it made me happy while it lasted.

Happy days!
