So most of my regular readers have heard me mention my boyfriend's beautiful supervisor (G). I have mentioned how fabulous she looks and how G is always flirty with all the guys and I always felt like a big fat pig when I would go to any work event for my boyfriend that G was attending. I also wrote how I felt good at his christmas party because I knew I looked good and that my weight loss was probably noticeable, despite her never saying a word to me.
well today at work I get an email from her. Definitely unexpected. Her email said that she was amazed at the weight I had lost and asked my boyfriend what I was doing. He told her I did LA Weight Loss until it closed. Well it turns out...she does it too! Kind of amazing especially since she looks fantastic. She told me that she ADMIRES me because she has only lost 10 pounds and cannot stick to it. She said that I am giving her some determination to keep going. She proceeded to email me all day asking me questions about things I have found to work, like I was some diet guru. Imagine, this beautiful (thin) girl by the way asking me for advice! I would never have expected this, but in a way it makes her more human and I kind of feel like I some how have the upper hand in this. I was always intimidated by her and it turns out she actually thinks I am pretty awesome because of what I have accomplished. Its funny too because she asked me for advice and I really had to think hard about what I would say. I mean, yes there is the obvious: stick to plan, drink water, work out. However, really when you think about it, all there is to changing your life is just to find something that works and then to work at it no matter what. This definitely has never been easy for me. Every day there are challenges and struggles I go through to stay on track, but I choose health over the chinese buffet that my work had for lunch today. She mentioned to me that she likes to go out and drink and I just said, I understand, but that I have given up that to be thin and healthy. Its just a matter of priorities and what you are ready for. There is nothing magical about what I am doing..its just hard work and making the right choices no matter what.
So it was an interesting day becasue of that. We will see where all of this goes and what happens next time we are in a room together.
In other news, I will not be weighing in tomorrow because I will be hosting a jewelry party with my best friend. I am excited and while I dont like not sticking to my weigh in schedule, if some of you out there can go a month without the scale, I think I can go 5 days. Hopefully on Monday I will see 170 or maybe..maybe..169? That would be AWESOME. I am kind of nervous about the food that will be at this party. My friend is a chef so she makes some amazing dishes that are not so amazing in calories. I just will have to envision that 169 number and hopefully make good choices or at least eat them in moderation.
And yes, today was day 2 of no hot chocolate. and to answer everyone's comments..yes it is sugar free hot chocolate.
