I got my first weight loss compliment today (well at least first one this whole year)!!!
My daughter's friends mom said I was looking "really skinny"!!! And that she wanted to say something before but wasn't sure how I'd take it!!
She asked me what I was doing to lose the weight, etc
And she has only known me since August and she never even saw me at my highest weight!

I am just over the moon happy that someone's noticed my hard work. It really gave me the boost I needed. Today my goal was to be 166lbs and I didn't make it because I am retaining water from starting my new excercise routine.
I still lost 7 of the 9lbs I wanted to lose by Halloween so I am still proud of myself!!

Just had to share because it means so much to me!!

That's great! I've wondered when people would really start noticing my loss. I'm surprised that it took 41 pounds for you. Regardless of when it happens, it's still wonderful.

That is so amazing. When people notice it is always great motivation. Sooo happy for you :)

I'm very weird though because I appreciate people noticing but I get awkward when they talk to me about it. I'm like thank you...but I don't really know what else to say so I feel uncomfortable. LOL.
