WooooHoooooo! I know how you feel, I lost 20 lbs and not one person commented, My Fiance knew I was on this journey, but He'd only say, you're doing good- and I take that to mean my eating.

Just recently a housekeeper at work noticed, and I was in my big old scrubs, and then 1 week later my mom finally remarked "I can tell you are losing weight", it felt good- even though I know that's not what this journey is about.

Congrats on all your success!

I know we should all be motivated to be our best for ourselves but I can't ever turn down sincere external motivation. ;) CONGRATS!

Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.

It's so nice when others finally notice. I've lost 35 pounds in the past year and 2 people have noticed.

I have been working out 3 days a week with coworkers and trying to change my diet and way of eating.. This has been a work in progress for the last 2 months and tonight, my husband made the comment that he can tell that my body is changing shape and my energy level seems higher. GO ME!!!! emoticon
