I know how you feel! I've lost almost the same amount of weight as you (16 pounds) and my family has been very supportive and will say something every now and then. But last weekend I saw a friend I hadn't seen since Febuary and she stated, "You've lost weight!"

I squeed and said I had to hug her. She was a little surprised, but I explained she was the first person besides family to say something, and she understood.

It was a little awkward because my best friend was also standing right there, someone I also don't see very often. I hadn't said anything to her, and I didn't expect her to say anything back. She LITERALLY does not see weight. She was SHOCKED when I told her I had gained 50 pounds since high school. How do you not notice that? Ah, Tammy....

Still, let's give ourselves a little happy veggie dance, shall we?

WooHoo! That is such a great feeling! You'll notice that you start hearing it more often now too. I found that once 1 person said something, in the next week I had several people comment. It is such a motivator for me.

Congratulations!!! I'm hoping in a few weeks I'll be getting similar comments instead of the recent 'when are you do?/are you pregnant?' Ones I've had lately, hmph.

Keep up the good work ladies!

That is fantastic! I can't wait for someone to notice! I've been living in kind of a reclusive hole since I started this, so hopefully whenever I get around to seeing people outside of my family/boyfriend/best friend, someone will have something good to say! But for real, kudos to you!!!
Overall Goal:

Taking it 15lbs at a time, all the way down!
