Since i left my parent’s home a few years ago, i visit them once every second week. As I do not see them every day, they noticed the fact that I lost 35 pounds quite rapidly; and getting in shape doing lots of sports.

Last week, my mother had a funny comment that we can usually hear in our early teens.

“hey you look nice; women must be starting to chase you up” :goodvibes

Since i was obese from age 9 or 10, I received this teenage years comment at age 34….

…and yes I receive quite a lot of invitations these days ;)

You may have gotten the line 20 years later but I'm sure you deserved it 20 years ago. Good job with all you have done so far!

And, I agree we want some pictures!

that is great. I agree that you probably should've gotten the comment 20 years ago as well as now. :) Keep up the good work.

As i mentionnned in antoher thread, i would have liked to wait for 75 pounds loss milestone (from my highest 335 in 2003). This should happen within a 4-5 weeks; but i'll go buy a film for my camera right away....

Look at it this way, at 34 you can really appreciate the comment! Ha. Congratulations :) that kind of acknowledgement can feel way, way better than any number on a scale. Pic! Pic! ;)
