Something Great Just Happened
That's right. Something wonderful & unexpected just happened to me & didn't cost me a thing. (Always a bonus.) I was at work & was finishing an exam on a lady a bit heftier than me. I told her to do something that she was having a difficult time doing until I realized I hadn't pulled her out of the scanner yet. Whoops. I apologized & she laughed & said that it was a bit difficult for someone big like her. I told her no & that I think anyone would have problems doing that. She said, "No, you would have no problem doing that. You're tiny."
*Mouth gaping open*
I said thank you & "That really means a lot to me. I've recently lost right around 60 lbs so that means more than you think to me."
She was shocked. She then asked me if I had weight loss surgery. I told her that I had started out looking into it but decided to give myself 2 years to get it off before I started seriously pursuing it. She then asked me how long it had been & I told her just over 9 months. She then told me about a friend of hers that had lap band last spring & hadn't quite lost that much weight yet.
I just thought I would share a bit of sunshine from my day. :)
