aww shucks :o)

Let me pre-face this story for you- In my office I work for 3 different companies, only 1 of my bosses knows about my band.

Yesterday I took a personal day and I guess one of the bosses who doesn't know about the band approached my other boss that does know to ask if I was OK. He said he noticed I've been losing a lot of weight, and had always thought I was a beautiful girl and didn't need to change a thing. He wanted to make sure I was doing OK health wise and losing weight on purpose not because I was sick.

OMG how freaking cute is that?!?! The boss who knows just told him that I've been working very hard, and that yes I've lost a lot of weight, but it is on purpose. haha. He then asked her if she thought it would be OK if he complimented me on how nice I look, she said of course! I haven't seen him yet, but I can't wait till I do!

I wanted to thank all of you for all of the awesome comments on my 'bombshell' picture. I'm trying really hard not to let all these compliments go to my head, but it's difficult lol. I just feel like I'm at a really good place right now. That seems to be the trend around the blogosphere- A lot of us are getting into 12-14's and into the 170's and feeling comfortable. I know I still have a bunch more to lose, but it just feels great to be considered 'average' size!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! XOXOXOXO


  1. Very jealous of all you "average" girls, but I know I'll get there eventually.

  2. OH yes mama, "average" does feel so good. As if the stares are gone, compliments are in abundance, and you just feel like you can go about your life and not attract negative attention from strangers! I can't tell you how good I feel in my new size 14s!!! I'm right there with you!!! And the story about your boss, soooo sweet! Polite guy!

  3. I can't wait to get where you are. Great NSVs

  4. Great NSV! It's so nice not to be the biggest girl in the room, isn't it?


  6. I love this story!! I have people at church that kind of do the same thing to me! lol

    I'm kind of in that "normal" stage too because my whole life I was always 40ishlbs over weight and then gained 60lbs really fast and couldnt get it off so I had the band but now I feel like I'm back to my "normal" 40lbs overweight that I was my whole life lol. So weird. I am so happy you are feeling so good!
