Compliments and Goals

Yesterday I had these nice brown, khaki style, pants on for work. I wore them to church last night also because I had nursery duty for the service. Well, I received four, yes FOUR, compliments on my figure along the lines of "Are you still losing weight?" and "What are you doing? Because you are looking good."

Since my scale hasn't really moved in the last couple of weeks, but I have been working out harder and more steadily, I was greatly thrilled and encouraged by these nice words. I also decided that I should wear those pants more often!!! :o)

Now on to another goal of mine....

As I walk/jog on the track up around the gym at the church I pass quite a few couples walking. They are older couples, some maybe in their 50s, but more are probably in their 60s and even 70s. Some are going slower than others, but they all continue round and round steadily getting in their exercise staying right next to each other. Every time I'm coming up behind one of these couples I think to myself, "That's what I want to be when I'm their age - healthy and going for regular walks with my husband."

Should Jesus tarry, and we're given the blessing to grow old together, I believe it's another goal I can reach.


  1. That's what I think when I see old people who are exercising. I always think, "Please let me be healthy and active when I'm older."

    I'm so glad you got 4 compliments on your new, improved figure! Way to go Leah!

  2. That is great about the compliments! It always nice to see hard work get noticed :-)

  3. And it's a testimony that the scale doesn't always reflect reality. Your reality is that your hard work is paying off! Way to go!
