Default Whoohoo, NSV!!!

I went to visit my grandma today, who I haven't seen since about when I started this weight loss journey three and a half months ago.
We all walked in and DH and DD went into the lounge, while I helped grandma make drinks in the kitchen. She kept turning around and looking at me like she was confused, and then she opened her mouth and said the words I've been waiting for from someone for like forever "have you lost weight"!!!!!!!
I could have kissed and hugged her and picked her up and spun her around
I told her that yes I had and how much and she said that I looked really good and asked how I was doing it.
I really thought that no-one was ever going to notice or ask and have been struggling this past couple of weeks with keeping up the momentum (not motivation - I've got commitment lol), so this came at a perfect time and reinforced that although I've still got a long way to go, there is visible progress being made.

Congratulations!!! I think that is one of the hardest things at first, you work your booty off and nobody notices (or at least doesn't say so) You must be so happy!!! Keep up the good work, 30 lbs is huge! Way to go,
I'm gonna do this.

Never miss an opportunity to offer encouragement to others!
