It can be embarrassing...for sure. Especially when people YELL it across a room, or say things like, "Hey, this is my friend Lori, she has lost A LOT of weight...!" Ugh. But, the health benefits FAR outweigh the embarrassment so I try to grin and bare it.

After you get to goal expect it to go on for awhile, but then it eventually wears off...except for the looks from the people who expect you (or hope that you will) gain it back...then they just look you over very carefully to see if they can see an additional pound or 10 creeping back on....(love those people...they are the ones who have actually kept me committed to maintaince in an odd sort of way!)

You are doing terrific. Smile and lavish the compliments!
