NSV.....or is it????

Well, lots of things are going on in my little world here in sunny North Carolina.  :)  We are in the process of building a deck and it is looking good.  I can't wait for that moment (hopefully Sunday morning before church) that I go out, early, coffee in hand and sit on my deck.

Also, in a week from now my sis and I will be Delaware bound where we will meet up with our other two sisters and on Sunday head to NY and ship out for Bermuda.  We are all so excited.

ok, on to the NSV.....I think.  So, there is this guy at work.  You know the kind, he is nice, but he talks more (with more enthusiasm) to the pretty girls.  Basically, I have seen him go out of his way to help a young, pretty female engineer, but never the new young guy engineers.  You get the picture.  Anyhow, I have chit chatted with him before, but not in great length and by far not with that enthusiasm.  Well, he walks past my desk the other day and says, "Hey pretty lady!".  Who is he talking to?  I look around...I am the only one.  Wow!!  Ok, I'll take it.  :)  I can't help what he is like, but I sure will take the compliment.  lol

But at the same time, I am perplexed.  Has 40 lbs made that much difference?  I know my looks are changing slowly (even though I don't really see it).  Is it that or is it me?  Is my confidence level showing a different side of me and people like him are feeding off of that?  Years many years ago, when I lost a considerable amount of weight, I noticed the same thing, but never really put much thought into it.

Maybe it is a combination of both.  Hmmmm....


  1. You're right. People do treat us differently when we lose weight. I'm so happy for you going on that trip with your sisters!!!!

  2. It's probably both and that's awesome!

  3. Don't cut yourself short, no pun intended at all 5'2" of you lol. You are pretty and always have been, no matter what size you were. It just amazes me at the callousness in some people. You are the same person and you have the same pretty face you had 3 months ago. Anyway. Enjoy your new life enjoy whatever compliments come your way, no matter who they are from. Because at least those people can see you have made a lifestyle change and probable believe, and by the way you are most worthy of their compliments. Because when he called you "Pretty Lady" I'm sure it was a big compliment. Love you Baby Girl. See you this weekend

  4. You're not only looking great, but you're probably naturally exuding more confidence, which may have peaked his fancy. :) Good for you!!!!


    P.S. I'm new to your blog, but I look forward to reading more!
