I attended a professional development workshop yesterday. I got to spend time with my co-workers and others who I don't get to talk to much or at all.
Around our 2pm break I stood up and sauntered around. A lady who I really respect whispered to me to come over to her. I thought she would ask me a question about some trouble I have been having with another co-worker on the weekends... but, she said... "so, how much weight have you lost?" I was totally shocked. I blurted out "oh, you can tell?" She said it was very noticeable. I told her I was down 22 lbs and we talked about what I had been doing. I mentioned that no one had really noticed or said anything.
She said she was unsure if she should say anything because it comes off as rude in a way. I totally understand, but it made me feel good to know that someone I don't know that well has noticed a change in my body, even if I can't really see it!
This gives me a little bit of renewed energy to keep at it! Thanks Michele for noticing and saying something!
On a side note, I biked to and from my workshop. On the way home this was a brewing...
I knew in my mind I would get caught in it.
I took a short route- over train tracks. Not overly fun!
About 8 blocks from home I got caught in the storm. It was my first experience in rain riding. It's difficult! The water is pouring down your face, cars are splashing you, riding through puddles.
When I got home I looked like this.
My clothes are still wet. Haha. It was kinda fun though!
