Yesterday, my husband and I took my Mom out for dinner for Mother's Day. She's seen me on and off for the last few months but hadn't mentioned anything about my weight loss. I didn't think that was anything out of the ordinary. Huggy/kissy/complimenting stuff in my family is only done under threat of water torture.
However, as soon as she saw me, she gave me a big old hug and said that I was looking so healthy, fit and trim. She even pinched my cheeks and said I was looking rosy (I guess that Clinique stuff is working), and kept on hugging me, saying I looked fantastic.
Wow. Did that ever come out of left field! I went over to wish her a happy Mother's Day and she wound up giving me a great present in return :)
