Default NSV: They didn't recognize me

My husband and I rarely get the chance to go out together. Last night my mom took the kids, so we went to a bar that neither one of us had been to, but we knew the bartender from a bar that he used to work at that we went to 4-5 years ago. Anyway, he sincerely didn't recognize me. I was sort of confused (and a little hurt) at why he was excited to see my husband, but acting like he didn't know me. A few minutes later he came up and just flat out asked me how much weight I've lost. I'm not really used to guys being that forward about weight loss, so it sort of threw me off, lol. Anyway, I told him 95 pounds, and he gave me a high five and told me how awesome that he thought that was. He apologized, and he told me he didn't even recognize me until someone said my name--he wondered who the chick with my husband was! Too funny...but I gotta say, I've never been so happy to not be recognized!
New goal: Be a healthy-eating, trim and FIT beast at the gym! 140ish pounds, but the focus is on looking and feeling good--HEALTH!!!

That's awesome!! I can't wait until it's warmer and we're out and about more. I can only hope people won't recognize me.

He thought your hubby had some hot new girl and didn't want to ask about you to make things awkward. How funny is that? (but something a bartender probably sees more often than an average Joe would). Yay for YOU being the hot mama with your DH!

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

Congrats on the awesome NSV!

I think that's one of the best NSVs and it really helps put in perspective how much weight you've lost. Those always around you see you all the time so while they notice it, they can still recognize you. When someone who hasn't seen you in a while doesn't recognize you....you know you've really changed!

Same thing happened to me recently. I went to a party with my fiance and I hadn't seen most of the people since before I lost weight. They thought he brought a different girl to the party and didn't know what to do! LOL it wasn't until I went up to everyone and said hi that they realized it was me!
