I was outside earlier this morning with my dog and I ran into one of my neighbors. She was also out with her dog. I hadn’t seen her for a while so we stood and talked while our dogs played.
She works in the hospital where I work. Well … I’m on medical leave, but I still do work there, although you wouldn’t know it lately would you?
I always see either her or her husband out walking their dog. It’s a beautiful brindle American terrier and he just seems to love our Labrador Retriever.
I hadn’t talked with her for a while, maybe since Autumn even though I see her pass by my house regularly. I guess I hadn’t taken a close look at her either because when I did stop to talk with her this morning I noticed that she’d really lost weight. I don’t know what she’s doing, maybe she found diet supplements that work or she really stepped up the walking or something, but whatever she’s up to it’s working! She looks great.
Maybe I should have said something, but I didn’t want to make her self conscious about her looks or anything. I was just really impressed. I mean, you don’t see people really shaping up in the middle of winter – not in the middle of a bad Canadian winter anyway. Not usually. Good for her!
Do you ever notice that about your neighbors or co-workers .. that they’ve suddenly started to lose weight or get into better shape?
