Dress Up Tuesday

Some of you are aware that every other Tuesday is Water Delivery Day at my office. I have not talked about Water Guy in a very long time, but today deserves a post. I have made an effort to make sure I am dressed up on Tuesday Delivery days. Call me crazy, but with the delivery guy flirting with me from time to time it makes me feel really good. Now, some months back the flirting went to a point where I was not really sure where it was going to go. I wish I could say that I have had a date, but alas I can't say that. I don't know if we will ever date, which I am okay with. It is just nice to be able to flirt with a guy that I have seen every other Tuesday for the last 5 years that I never even thought would give me the time of day. Something about it boosts my confidence each time it is Dress Up Tuesday.

Now, this morning I was not in the mood to dress up. I have been fighting off a sinus infection and my mornings have been rough. I finally started taking some medication last night and in just a few short hours I am seeing progress. I opened up the closet this morning and could not decide if it was going to be too warm later in the afternoon to actually wear a long sleeve shirt. Then what about a cover up or a simple sweater. The decision was tough - and I had this mental picture that I was not going to dress up today. I have not seen water delivery guy in over a month - missed the last delivery because I was out of the office. Well, I finally did decide and was glad with my selection.....

...because as I was driving into the parking lot, guess who was there. I was pleased to see him so early in his delivery. Maybe we would get to have a real conversation this morning. I hopped out of the car and got to chit chat outside with him for a few minutes. The next thing I knew he was just staring at me. Was in aahh for a moment and out of his mouth came these words - "you look good today" - not just once, but I think about 3 times. Each time he said it he was looking me up and down - yes, checking me out. Wow - what a huge confidence boost for me. He wanted to know what I was doing to look so good. I told him that I was happy and just taking care of myself better. And yes, was losing weight. I felt really good at this moment. I really needed this moment. I needed this conversation to go well because I am having some personal struggles with my weight loss journey. The conversation went exceptionally well!!!! We talked for longer then we have in more then 3 months. Still no date out of this, but today was a great fantastic uplifting Dress Up Tuesday for me. So glad I decided to skip the tennis shoes and go with a more dress up flair!! Every girl needs to have those moments and I got that today!!!

My day has started on a high note!!!! I needed that push again and today was a huge push in the right direction. Looking forward to my next Dress Up Tuesday event!

What moment has helped you with your weight loss journey this month?

Someone needs to knock him over the head so he asks you out! If I lived close, I'd do it!
