Smile Soooo Excited !!!

I'm so excited today and proud of myself, and I wanted to share it here (even though I mostly just lurk) because I don't discuss 'numbers' with my hubby or family members. I started my diet last Nov. I had 125 lbs to lose. Today I hit 2 big benchmarks, #1 - I have lost 75 pounds!!!! and #2 - I weighed in at 199 today!!! so happy to be out of the 200's.
Even though I've lost that much, it's only in the past 3 or 4 weeks that I have started getting alot of comments. To be honest, it makes me uncomfortable... what do you say to "you've lost so much weight!!". Um, yeah, I was realllllly fat before. But I just say thanks and change the subject. My body feels so much better, no more foot and knee pain. And my feet have shrunk from an 8 1/2 wide to an 8 medium. I was a 7 1/2 before I had kids (and was not overweight). I work out 45-60 minutes a day and stick to around 1200-1400 calories, with some days off here and there. 50 more pounds to go!!!

That is fantastic! It's hard to "own" compliments by simply saying "Thank you." But YOU BETTER GET USED TO IT! You are awesome!
