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.

Hi Jennifer, just found your blog tonight while blog hopping.
What a great feeling you must have had while the nurse stood in amazement. Everytime you feel down, think of that moment.

I'm now a new follower! Yay!!!
