Thank you so much everyone!
I received so many comments and compliments this weekend it was kinna ridiculous. The best? A woman at work, who is in another department so I don't see her often, totally didn't recognize me! She asked me if I'd just started working there and I thought she was joking or something. But then she was all like, "Oh my God! Wow!"
35 pounds and new hair does amazing things to people's perceptions of you!
