Perty by Thirty Week 15

Well, it has been 4 weeks since the last weight gain, so I was due for another. I am blaming it all on hormones. I've decided that is why I keep having weight loss "issues" once a month. Sounds like a good excuse to me! I'm using it this week. :)

I gained .8 pounds. So, really, not too shabby. I am currently at 38.2 weight loss in 15 weeks.

I have discovered that I can't take compliments well. I am to the point of my weight loss that it is obvious. My clothing is far to large and I have had to retire some old clothing from my wardrobe. Since it is obvious now, people are commenting about the changes. I put two and two together this week and realized that the weeks people comment more about my weight loss, I eat more. I know it doesn't make since, but it's what I do. Now I'm trying to make a point not to eat everytime I get compliments. Those snacks add up!

And now for excuse three and four.

Maybe the weight gain was just related to the hormonal cravings I had this week. Or the massive amount of Easter candy my son received that just keeps calling my name.

And there are all the excuses I have. Hopefully I won't have to think up new ones next week! :)

Well it is a very good thing to learn how to take a compliment well. You certainly deserve all of the compliments you are receiving!

My husband sings at church and for about the first year or more he would get fidgety when someone gave him a compliment, but now he just smiles and says thanks. It was hard for him to learn too, but we need to compliment others, it does our souls good so don't deny people what they need to do--encourage people who are doing amazing! (Which is you, you realize, right?)
