Wink I got called SMALL

Seriously. Me. Small.

I weigh 230 freaking pounds! Yes I know compared to 377 it's small but it's NOT small by any measure.

And yet... I got called small. Actually "I can't believe how SMALL you are!"

The mind freaking boggles I tell ya.

That's wonderful!! It's all relative and it just shows how people are noticing your excellent progress! Keep up the good work.

I know!! I ran into a friend I hadn't seen since 2006 and she literally screamed when she saw me...then she told me I was TINY. Ha, I am barely under 250 lbs, I sure ain't tiny. It was very nice though.

And, I've seen your pics...you ARE tiny! When you get to goal you are going to be PETITE. When I get to goal, I'll still be an Amazon LOL.

I have found that "small" IS relative. The first time someone called me small, I actually laughed out loud. It was so ludicrous that I laughed hysterically - yet they were serious.

What an awesome milestone for you!

Oh that feels nice!!!

Just wait, now comes the "don't go and get too skinny now" and "make sure you don't become anorexic" "you're not still losing weight are you?" and "just how much more weight do you plan on losing?" and "aren't you done yet?" and "are you still dieting?". Oy.

It's all part of the territory. The compliments are really nice. Feels fantastic in fact. But for some reason, people now think that they're able to comment freely about how you look and how they know what's best for you and how you should eat. One of the only downsides of losing a lot of weight.

Oh well. But do enjoy those comments. They're loads of fun and yes - definitely mind blowing. I still have to look behind me sometimes when someone mentions how tiny I am to see if they're speaking to the person in back of me. But no, they're not.

Your hard work is paying off and people can't help but notice, marvel and comment on it.

Thanks ladies! I know for my weight I am smaller... measurement wise than perhaps I should be. And I know I look small COMPARED but being called small was a huge shock. I tell people that I want to lose another 80 lbs and their eyes BUG out of their heads. It's kinda funny
