    I ran into someone from my old high school. We were never good friends so we didn't keep in touch at all, but we happened to go to the same college and we happened to run into each other yesterday.

    Although I did the whole look the other way and pretend I didn't see him thing, he actually stopped and his first words were "Damn man you are getting ripped"

    Even though I have been working out like crazy, no one has actually said that to me and it just made my day 100x better. Little things like that really help know that it is worth it icon_biggrin.gif

    See, all the more reason to stop and say "hello" to someone you might otherwise not. Sometimes a smile and a nod, sometimes a hello can yeild such great results. Something to think about. icon_biggrin.gif

    I get comments everyday of:

    "What the Fuck are you wearing?"

    "You look really sexy, half-naked in your sexy Dior outfit."

    "Aren't you cold?"

    "How did you ever come up with that clothing combination?"

    "Half your face is painted on, why do you do that?"

    My response:

    There's two sides to every story. . . I LOVE IT!

    I've gotten a few at the gym like "you look pretty good for an old guy" and "you remind me of Jack LaLanne" LOL . I take them as compliments regardless and that I must be doing something right. I also give em occasionally like when I see some fat guy who's been faithfully exercising over the months and has lost some weight because it's nice to hear from someone that it's noticeable and you're making progress. It also give you the incentive to keep on carrying on.

    I've noticed that people are quicker to point out when you're getting fat than fit. Makes the validation of your efforts all the more worthwhile!

    Goes right on back to random acts of kindness. It feels just as good to give those compliments as it does to receive them!
