Red in the face

Hi All,

I had a rather embarrassing and lovely moment at work today. One of my colleagues has been off for a week and a half and when she saw me she said how great I looked and how much weight I had lost pretty loudly! Cue the whole office floor (I work in an open plan office) agreeing and saying you can definitely tell from my face etc. It was lovely as apart from my boyfriend no one had noticed but I did go red in the face, I'm not a centre-of-attention kind of person! It did help that I wore a slightly tighter dress today as I can now fit in to it!

Off to the gym now!

Thanks Ruth! I feel more confident now! I did the HIIT workout I saw on another post and I was nearly physically sick but I so am impressed at myself for managing it! I thought I was doing HIIT before but I don't think I was pushing myself enough!

Thanks Jenever! I walked with a spring in my step after that, although now I feel I need a lie down after that gym session!

Fab! When others start commenting you know that the scales haven't been lying to you !

Enjoy the compliments and be proud!

Enjoy the attention, if you had got larger and then said something it wouldn't be so good

Well done, isn't it great when others notice. That must such a motivation to keep going!

I think going down a dress size and other people noticing is better than what the scales tell you 👍

Can't wait to have that moment 😉

How wonderful was that ? I would go red faced too LOL. It's great when people notice and when they say something to you, there is something very rewarding about that.

Big smiles all round, well done on your achievements
