Made my night!!!

I ran a quick errand to a little convenience store in town tonight. This is a really small town so everyone recognizes everyone else, even if we don't really know them. But I'm in the minority not knowing everyone, most people know everyone here because they grew up here and they know who I am because I'm the wife of the only state trooper that lives in the county...and a lot of them don't exactly like him, so I keep to myself. The woman behind the counter has seen me in there on several occasions, but she doesn't really know me. But...when I walked up to the counter she said, "Are you losing weight? You look great!" That totally made my night. My husband says he can tell, but he knows I'm trying. This woman had no idea and noticed. :)

Hey, I was just reading about something I wanted to share with you.

Have you ever heard of a Green Smoothie?

I haven't tried it yet but I am going to today. You just make a smoothie (fruit, ice, water) and add spinach and flax seed.

It is supposed to taste pretty much like the regular smoothie, and it is supposed to help the weight come off easier if you drink one a day!

Just thought you might be interested! I am excited to try it. It is healthy even if it doesn't really help! haha

Very interesting. Hmmmm....next time we go into one of the cities I might have to pick up some flax seed. My boonies town doesn't even have skim milk (I know...what the heck?!?!) so I doubt anyone sells flax seed. But we're moving!!!!!! :) Sometime between June 1st and August 31st we'll be out of here!!!

Isn't that the best feeling, when somebody who doesn't know you're trying can tell you've lost weight? Congrats!
