I have been working to lose weight vigilantly for the last 5 weeks, and managed to drop 22 pounds in that time.

My mom looked at me this morning and said "I can tell that you've lost a lot of weight in your stomach, your stomach doesn't stick out further than your boobs now." I was elated, but also mortified that my stomach had gotten to sticking out further than my boobies!

Then this afternoon, my dad came over and told me "You look really good, I can tell that you've lost a lot of weight, how are you doing it?" TRULY, this is the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE that my dad told me that I looked really good and complimented me and he didn't even follow up with an insult. I am so excited, it is nice for people to notice that you've lost weight and compliment you on it.
:carrot: :cb: :cheer: :dancer: :high:

I also want to thank everyone here for being so supportive and helpful from the very beginning.

That's great! It really does mean a lot. Sometimes it's hard for us to see any difference even when the scale or tape measure tells us our body is changing. When others notice it really helps build our confidence that we are doing something right. Keep up the good work!

I also had a tummy that stuck out past my boobs. LOL It is getting smaller now! Only my 3rd week and I feel so much better.

Thanks everyone :) I am considering taking "progress" pictures and posting them... might take a bit of courage though. My initial pictures from January are horrifying and I can only hope my progress would look better.

happytobeonthisdiet- the further along you go the more you'll notice, my pants are finally getting loose! Good luck and keep up the good work :)
