Congrats though - I mean really, buying new shoes isn't a bad thing
Oh, and I caught your comment about not liking people commenting on the weight loss (not that you said you didn't like it) but got nervous etc.
Don't let people giving you a compliment make you nervous. Turn those compliments into little nuggets of motivation - turn them into energy to keep going. I know it may sound silly, but write them down and put them on your bathroom mirror. They should make you feel good that you are making progress - not angry or nervous that you're getting them!
Before I gained the weight I have now, I had gained and lost about 30 pounds. I would get flat out pissy when someone noticed because in my mind I would berate myself for getting fat, and then mad because I had to lose, and even madder that someone noticed that I had lost. Our minds can be our worst enemy... so let it go. Revel in the progress, let it be what it is, and continue on!
Haha, I'll step off the soapbox
You go girl!
