Drop it Like its Hot: The First Ten Pounds… are noticed.

August 3 2009 | CeCe Olisa

It was a random Monday and Robert was standing at my desk during his daily visit. We were quietly talking about everything and nothing when he stopped and looked at me.

“You look different,” he said.

“Do I?”

“Yeah, you do. I don’t know….”

I looked at him.

He looked at me.

“Different, good? or Different… bad?” I asked slowly.

“Good… different, good.”

He looked at me.

I looked at him.

I wasn’t sure what to say, so I just kind of shrugged my shoulders and changed the subject.

….One Week Later….
I was wearing pink heels, a black strapless sundress that hit just above my knees and a pink cardigan. I felt pretty, so I didn’t mind that I could feel Roberts eyes on me as I came down the escalator. He was standing at the bottom with some of our coworkers, waiting for me so that we could all grab an afterwork drink together.
As the group walked to our destination, Robert and I fell into step together a few feet back from everyone else. We had been walking in silence for about half of a block when Robert said:
“So, I know why you look different.”
“Okay,” I replied, waiting for him to continue.
“You look… smaller.”
I laughed.
“Is that okay for me to say?” He asked quickly.
“Yes, you can say that.”
“I actually wanted to say that last week. I know I said I didn’t know why you looked different, but I did. I just… I didn’t want to upset you or anything.”
I laughed again.
If you’ve been following my twitter updates (www.twitter.com/thebiggirlblog) you know that I’ve been trying to stay on top of my morning workouts and that I’ve been making some big changes in my eating habits; actually eating breakfast, passing up free brownies, drinking fruit smoothies for lunch, etc. I don’t think I’ve dropped the first ten pounds completely, but I haven’t been on a scale yet, so we’ll see.
I have to admit, I found Roberts sensitivity very cute. I dont know how other PSP’s feel, but I think its nice when people notice that I’m loosing weight. Of course, it also adds a bit of pressure to continue to lose, but maybe that’s not such a bad thing as long as I continue to lose for myself and not for Robert or anyone else.
Note: We’ll actually be talking more about dieting and relationships in this weeks Curvy Conversations segment, so stay tuned!

    That's awesome and congrats but just to let you know, you often use th word loose when you mean lose in your posts. Loose refers to a loose button or as in a dog getting loose. Lose refers to the loss of weight or personal belongings. I know you're planning on writing about all the weight you're losing so I thought I'd let you know!

    Yay!! on the 10lbs! That is awesome! And I am so glad that there is someone that can take the "Are you losing weight?" question in a good way. It has always bugged me, I don't know why. 🙂
