Positive Reinforcement

As I was working out at the gym Friday evening, an older lady came and got on the elliptical trainer next to mine. We smiled and nodded to one another, acknowledging our mutual acceptance of the close proximity. She seemed nice enough. At the end of my 45 minute work-out as I was gathering up my things and wiping down the machine, she looked over and said, "Very good! You did well today!" I blushed a little and said, "Well, I've got a long way to go," and she quickly replied, "You're fine! We're all fine! You must be healthy if you can work out that long. Good for you." What a sweet, perfectly KIND lady!! She made my day. That day and every day since. So what if I weigh 30 pounds more than I want to (and at least 40 pounds more than I ideally should). So what!! I'm healthy. I'm FINE. We're ALL FINE and I think we should tell each other so more often.
