Ever notice how some things come in bunches? (no not carrots, parsley, or bananas.... geeze You guyz all think like a BUNCH of raw food fanatics!! LOL!!! )
I've been getting compliments... and sometimes people just don't quite know how to give a compliment!!
I was told - "Wow - you're three times SMALLer than you used to be. I seriously didn't think it was you, I thought your husband had another woman sneaking out of the house early in the morning!"
( gee - thanks! I know they 'meant' it nicely!)
Here's another good one: "Wow - are you losing weight? That's REALLY good because I was walking up to the office the other day and I was thinking ... Wow - you've really packed on the weight."
(OMG ... okay - thanks... )
dh has NEVER been one to hand out too many compliments. When I was a skinny (unhealthy) I was between a size 0 to a size 3/4 - he never gave me many compliments, (maybe bcuz I LOOKED unhealthy - duhhh... )
(If I ever complained - his answer was always - if you look good you should know it and I shouldn't have to tell you.) sigh...
but then I got big ... and bigger ... and REALLY BIG ....and of course - he definitely didn't compliment me then LOL!! ;)
BUT... when I made the decision to begin living the Raw lifestyle - he became so grateful that i was losing any thing at all - that now he compliments me almost every day!! I think he sees ME... emerging from this cocoon of fat and he's sooo relieved! LOL... cute but funny!
(which makes me grateful that he's finally noticing! and it gives me more incentive to work harder - eat healthier -- all that!)
A list of dh compliments (mind you some of them are -- well, he means well!) He really does!
He hugged me the other day and got all happy and told me ..."OMG... I can put my arms all the way around you again!!"
He pats my tummy (yes - I said pats my tummy like I'm a buddah) and he says... "Wow honey, you're really losing the weight there!! You're not all jiggly anymore!!"
oh and this is a good one...
he grabbed my butt as I walked by and he said "OMG - you have a small a** again!! That's so cool - ya know honey - it was getting kinda scary there for a while. Your butt was really REALLY HUGE."
Or when he came home and I was standing at the kitchen counter. And he said... "Wow - it's so strange to see you standing there - I'm so used to seeing this huge a** - and here you are - and its you but you look so different from behind now!!"
gee -- thanks hon!!
and yesterday - I got a compliment from one of the mechanics -
"Are you losing weight?"
I said "yes"
he said..."Its uhh... uhhh... " and then he shakes his head yes...
at that point I wanted to bend over so that my EYES were where my BUST was at that moment and say ... "Hello - I'm up here!!"
Now I know that it's not my imagination -- those technically ARE compliments aren't they?? LOL! aHHH Welll....
Everyone have a Rawmacious Afternoon/evening!!
