“So, tell me how I can look like you”

Never, in a million years, did I think I’d hear those words from another woman.  Last night, though, I did, and it was awesome.

My BF and I met up with one of his closest friends and his friend’s new lady.  I was wearing my “skinny” jeans and a sleeveless, v-neck top.  We met at a little club in town to hear a fairly unknown band who was opening for a bigger 80s act.  As we got comfy with our drinks, the new girl said to me while looking at my arms, “You obviously work out.”  That was cool!  She noticed the definition in my arms!  My weights workouts and push-ups are paying off.  I started to talk to her about my diet and exercise plan, but we got interrupted.

When things calmed down again, she said, “So, tell me how I can look like you.”  I was thunderstruck.  Imagine another woman – a tall, attractive flight attendant besides – saying that to ME!  It was just the morale boost I needed after these last several weeks of mental and emotional struggle. 

She talked about how she wanted to start working out and lose 25 pounds, and I filled her in on my plan.  Later on, I explained that I’d lost 117 pounds, and she shared that her sister weighs 300 pounds and can’t seem to get motivated to improve her health.  I sure could relate to that scenario.  We talked about other things throughout the night, too; she’s adorable, and I’m glad to have met her.

Her question will remain the highlight of the evening for a long time to come.  Now I just have to remember it when I’m feeling down and let it continue to remind of how much I’ve achieved.
