Positive feedback, nonetheless

As part of what’s becoming my weekly regimen, I was again in the warehouse shopping center yesterday picking up a few vitals (e.g. eggs and milk primarily).  After I swiped my credit card, the cashier asked to see my credit card (unusual there because they always look at the membership card).

She looked at the photo ID and remarked, “Wow, you must have lost a lot of weight!”

My first thought: “How should I take that?”  I guess that’s a good thing.

I took a close look at the photo on the ID card when she handed it back to me; I guess I used to carry a lot of weight around my neck.  It’s amazing how we can become so complacent with our body shape, weight, etc., and then it takes feedback like that to help you really “see” your old self.

This is the type of real-life feedback that I consider one of the better motivators to keep working hard.
