The mirror tells it like it is. It’s funny though, some days I think I look really great and other days I just feel fat. The scale gives the truest compliments – it doesn’t lie to make you feel good or get jealous when you are slimming down. It simply states the naked truth – you are on your way to a new and slimmer you!

There are some people who, no matter how much weight you lose or how good you look, never give you a compliment. Perhaps they are so self-absorbed they don’t notice you are slowly melting away. Maybe we remind them of their own dieting attempts and repeated failures so they ignore the thinner you. On the other hand, there are friends and family who think what you are doing is absolutely marvelous and praise you up and down. (Don’t you just love it?)
My mother thinks I am simply wonderful (of course) and with her poor eyesight might even think I am fashion model thin (ha ha!). My hairdresser, who asked me how I lost so much weight, wonders how I can survive without late night snacking. A teacher or two at school warned me not to lose too much weight (as if there is such a thing) and some people tell me I look perfect just the way I am and not to lose another pound. If they ever saw me undressed they wouldn’t say such a thing!
