She was mentioned in this post, on April 4th when I talked about Every Single Diet…
At the time of that post, she had lost 20 pounds.
By Friday, July 8th she had lost nearly 70 pounds. She came into work that day styling her new white capris, feeling so good about her progress and with good reason.
She was looking great!
Wendy’s desk is next to mine and while we sat there discussing how well she has done several of our team members were gathered close enough to join in the conversation. She had experienced a couple of difficult weeks at home, but was unwavering in her resolve to make healthy choices for herself. At some point in the discussion it was suggested that Wendy should do something nice for herself. There was mention of a massage or a pedicure, but I knew what she really wanted.
A New Hair Style
Wendy has been talking about a new hair style for weeks. She has been looking at pictures to find just the right cut for herself. So I told she should do it. Of course she refused. She didn’t have time and other excuses. I suggested that we go during lunch to a salon that was close by. Once again she refused. I pressed on, but could see, as much as she wanted to do it, she wasn’t going to let herself. Finally I told her that I was going to get to work and if she changed her mind, at any point before lunchtime, just say “okay Kim” and I will put the plan into motion. She hesitated, but before I turned around she said “okay Kim”.
No more ponytails Julie was a pleasure to work with and celebrated with us as she herself had lost a LOT of weight. She did a great job helping Wendy with her new look.And she’s a happy girl! Then the styling began… Wendy looks great! And so does her hair!
She has done what others only wish they could do.
And I’m so proud of her!
