I lost 55 or so but there were a lot of other changes going on in my social and professional lives where those from before didn't see me and the new ones didn't know. The only one who watched the transition was my wife and the night she said "It's like someone new above me" well, what an ego boost!
Almost every day :-) I've gone from ~340ish to 215 in the last year and a half or so. There's a huge difference. I have people stopping me in the halls, and close friends asking me how to get started :-)

Once I got down to 165 from 200 people really took note. Mostly asking what ailment I had. When I assured them that I just lost some weight and was working out, most of them said to put some weight back on because I looked too thin. So I think I am going to go down to my BMI weight of 145 just to shock them.
It took a loss of about 30 lbs. before anyone said anything and then it seemed like a flood of unsolicited queries came in at once. I have not lost much since then (about 4 months ago) and it has been really hard to keep moving in a positive direction. better days are ahead. Benny
Ok folks, So, you've dropped some weight and are feeling better about yourself. How much weight did you have to loose before someone actually said ( totally unsolicited ) something like...... "Have you lost weight" or "You look good...you on a diet? or "You been working out"? Look forward to hearing some fun stories here....
