A compliment that made my day (Jennifer)
Today I went to the Chiropractor. After finding out my ENT is not a participating provider (after I have now seen him 3 times and am supposed to have surgery) and I will have to pay out of pocket, and then finding out that the jaw specialist is also not participating I decided to go to the Chiropractor at the suggestion of the nurse practitioner. Maybe he could help with this supposed TMJ. I am desperate. I went to him before about a year and a half ago. I have terrible posture so every once in a while I need a back adjustment. Anyway, I went back there today and the reaction of the woman at the front desk (whom I barely recognized) was one like I have never gotten. She said "Jen????" I looked up and realized it was the woman I knew last year. She looked dumbfounded and said..."you look so different!!!". I told her how I had lost about 60 plus pounds. She said she could tell but didnt want to bring it up and offend me because some people are like that. I however, am not :) She told me that I looked great and wanted to know how I did it. The look on her face of disbelief the whole time we were talking surprised me. Then, when she brought me back to the exam room a few minutes later she continued to say how great I looked, still shaking her head in shock. Its funny because before going there today I was thinking about how I didnt feel very good about myself today. I didnt have on any makeup, I didnt love the outfit I had on and my hair was not looking very good. And, I was tired. Its been a while since I have gotten a compliment that really made my day. I left there with a little bounce in my step. I needed that.
