Accepting the compliment

Saturday, September 13, 2014

At the orthodontist on Thursday a young women asked if I am the mother of my 3rd son. She went to school with him in elementary school. He is now 22. She said I look just the same. She followed it up with You look great. I am sad that I am not thinner. But my husband told me I just need to take the compliment. That is hard. I will be 48 next month. I don't look that old.

It is time to work harder to get to where I want to go.

I am frustrated with my A1c. I need to move it 2 points down. I am going to spend the next 2 months focusing on that not weight loss.

    It's amazing that when we focus on improving one thing other things in our lives also improve. I don't think that's a coincidence.

    What a beautiful compliment.
    I have started to switch things up a bit working on self love, self care and making myself a priority in order to get my BG down also.
    Here's to moving forward.
