Default Great reaction to my weight loss

So I saw a family member I haven't seen in a number of months today. He was like "Holy crap, are you KIDDING me? You've lost a lot of weight!"
On one hand, I was like DUH but then I was also really pleased because it shows now I guess. Most people I see regularly wouldn't notice the way he did.

I call these my "bigger loser moments". LOL Whether it be one person or a group who haven't seen me, I love the reactions.

Just hold onto how wonderful that made you feel and it will give you the fuel you need to keep going. You have lost an AMAZING amount of weight!

Kudos to you!

well, considering that you are now close to 199 when before, you were close to 300, I'd say it's not a surprise he noticed! lol! But a great surprise, and congrats!!

I'm seeing more people this weekend who haven't seen me since December when I started my journey. Should be more fun!
