My Weight Loss Ticker!

TGIF!!

It has been an especially trying week and getting to the end of it was a victory for me! I did have a "moment" I wanted to share with you all though!

I work in a library and there is an older man that comes in and in the begining he was grumpy, never smiles, always grumpy, never says more than two words to us when we help him, just generally a sourpuss. I'm closing up and he passes by the door and looks back at me and says "You look great - you have lost a lot of weight." - I reply with "yes I have I've lost over 60 pounds" he says "Great job - you look really great." - So tonight he passes me again on his way out the door and says - "See you later skinny!"

That is just the coolest feeling - first off guys don't usually comment about your weight and for him to it was just amazing!

I think that would qualify as a true NSV! 60 pounds is amazing, by the way.
