WOE: My way low carb!

You won't believe this......

I went to my plastic surgeon today who had done a breast reduction 3 years ago and when I was standing at the counter, all the girls who were always very nice and whom I recognized were very non-chelant.

The office manager asked if she could help me and when I told her who I was and what I was there for she flipped out as she hadn't recognized me!

When all the girls realized it was me they all said they were so sorry that they hadn't acknowledged me as they, too, didn't know it was me!

THAT FELT GREAT!!!!

They then started to apologize for making such a huge fuss over me and I VERY quickly chimed in, "no, please, by all means continue....I've worked really, really hard to hear your kind words!".........it was just the best feeling in the world!

Oh and isn't that the best feeling! I know some people get upset when people comment on their weight loss, but I think it's so great when someone acknowledges your hard work.

Congratulations!

Can I be nosey and ask...are you getting surgery as a result of losing the weight? I've considered it but don't know whether I'm willing to give up my savings to do it.

True story....

I once dated a woman who was easily 350+ pounds. We only went out a couple of times, but we did work together for years..... anyway, she quit her job to focus on her weight..... about 3 years later she saw me in a grocery store and came over to say hello.

I didn't know who she was....

So, I look in her shopping cart and there are about 20 copies of some magazine..... Woman's World, I think it was..... Well, she obviously knew that I didn't know who she was...... and she pulled out one of the magazines, and it was this woman on the front cover..... the same woman I was talking to....

And she started laughing at me for not knowing who she was.... She opened the magazine, and there was a before and after picture! OMG, it was the woman I had dated 2x! She had lost over 200 pounds!

She now is a certified personal trainer and inspirational speaker....

WTG!
