How Low Can You Go

You're Shedding!!

>> Saturday, January 21, 2012

This is what I was told at the gym last week by a fellow spinner. I thanked her sheepishly. Remember when I said I wanted people to notice my weight loss? I am going to take that back, I am a hypocrite. I say that I like when people acknowledge my loss, but really and truly, I don't. It makes me, embarrassed and shy. I want to hide in a corner. Man, I'm strange.

Today I did an hour on the stepmill, yeah me! I don't know why but my heart feels weird today. Hope I wake up in the morning....

Sometimes I feel the same way. Especially at work.

You will wake up in the morning. God is a good God.

Do you have a heart rate monitor?

I can totally relate. I can't help but wonder what else they may be thinking that they aren't telling me.

In general I really love it when people notice and compliment me, but I have found certain times to be very embarrassing and uncomfortable - it's really a matter of how someone phrases it to you and what the setting is.

My heart has been feeling a little weird lately too. I have mitral valve palpitations and have been working out more lately. I hope everything is alright and you feel better in the morning. Take care.

I'm sorry that you felt that way ;( I hope you're relishing in the knowledge that what you are doing is making you healthier both inside and out and that stranger at spinning just confirmed it. No hiding in the corner for you, you're much too AWESOME. Hope tomorrow is a better day! xx

I'm the same, I find it awkward, especially if I don't really know the person very well. Saying that, I would be the first person to tell someone else they look great, so I should really learn to accept it myself LOL

LOL... definitely an example of be careful what you wish for . Cause now you have pl commenting & you realize it isn't you r cup of tea. Have a great week.

You know why you're uncomfortable?

It's because for a long time you've felt invisible, and now suddenly people are noticing you've got a beautiful body. You're visible.

Be proud. Accept the compliment.

You deserve it.

I agree wholeheartedly with what Lethal Astronaut said. You are coming into your own now. Eventually, you will be comfortable with all the complements you will be given. You deserve it :)

Tell me abou it! I get so self concious when someone points out I lost weight!! I have felt this way for SO long too. When people first started noticing I would say 'well maybe a little'...and now I'm starting to say 'well yes I've lost a little'! Maybe as we lose more it'll get easier? I'm still really sensitive about it!

Giiirl! Take it. Embrace it. Own it. Melting, shrinking, disappearing, shedding. TAKE IT! :) So glad to see you're still on the course.

I can so relate! It can be great to have your hard work acknowledged but when it happens sometimes its hard to know what to say...
