I’m not losing weight for anyone other than myself. That is why I have been so successful at it. If you’re trying to change something about yourself with the hope of pleasing someone else, you’re doomed to fail. You gotta be you (and I gotta be me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way).
That being said, it is nice to hear the phrase, ‘You’re lost weight!’ from people other than ones self (I was recently looking at this picture of myself, and I thought, ‘Ye gods, I have lost a lot of weight!’). Today, after lunching, I made my usual afternoon Wawa trip.
Oh, how I love Wawa. Their sandwiches are tasty, the stores are usually well kept, and they even offer a number of mildly healthy snacks for someone trying to get fit (I also enjoy their chocolate chip muffins, but at 678 calories, not something I often eat anymore). So I was in Wawa purchasing some almonds and a Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, which is pretty usual for my afternoon snack, when something very nice happened. I was paying for my crap, and the lady behind the register, who I have been chatting with pretty regularly for the last few years, said, ‘You’re lost a lot of weight, haven’t you?’
Sure, it is a little vain, but that really made my day. Kudos to you, Wawa lady!
