"Hey Skinny!"

Yesterday at school a teacher's aid asked me if I was losing weight. I told her, "Yes, I am and thank you for noticing!"

She said it was "really noticeable" when she walked in the room and saw me. I explained that it's been a slow process, but changes are being made and I do feel better.

Of course, you know that made my day. :)

Well, today I was at the school for about an hour as Mom, instead of substitute and the same teacher's aid sees me and says, "Hey Skinny!!"

I just laughed! I know at 209.5 lbs I am NOT skinny.

She gushed again about how it's so noticeable and I look great. I giggled and thanked her again for her kind words.

Silly lady. She's definitely a friend I'll have to keep around! :)


  1. I'm glad that you got the compliment. Those are always nice. Hope you have a good weekend!

  2. Hey, Skinny!

    Nice to have your efforts noticed!

  3. Compliments like that are definitely awesome! It sounds like you have a new nickname. :-)

  4. Oh I'm lovin' that!!! Doesn't that make you feel so good? Definitely keep her around! :)

  5. Definitely keep her as a friend! I hope your weekend went well Miss Skinny!!

  6. Having someone notice is motivating. 5.DON'T QUIT and STAY FOCUSED! (I'm looking at your weekly goal).
