I feel my curse is big bust, back fat and blubber! But, as have been losing weight, went to get measured for bra and lovely lady who measured me told me I had "a lovely bust, which didn't droop". Woo hoo for gravity defying boobies (if only!!!). Shame she gets paid to be nice to semi naked ladies ... emoticon

I think the best compliment I have ever recieved about my body was when I was able to keep up with my fiancee mountain biking, and at times, even surpassing him in ability. Just goes to show that hard work pays off. I like that he brags to his friends about his 'biker chick' girlfriend.

Who are other people to give their opinion and judge how much we should weigh? I swear, some people just don't want you to look good because it makes them feel bad about themselves. I say ignore the naysayers and keep on getting healthy. No one else should be able to judge what's best for ourselves!

I have family and friends who tell me that as I'm no longer fat (very obese), I don't need to lose any more weight. (I have a BMI of 26 now and want to get down to at least 24.9 Normal Weight for my height) but as I still have rolls of belly fat (curse of being an apple shape), I would like to get down to 105 pounds, what I used to weigh when I was healthy. They seem to view dieting and exercising to get down to the midway point of your normal weight, as being 'excessive' and dangerous. Quote your BMI health rating and improved health and appearance to counter their arguments. emoticon

Don''t give up, losing weight is like walking downhill and carrying a lighter load as you go. After a while, fill a carrier bag with the weight you have lost and feel good about yourself when you put it down.
Eating healthy and drinking lots of water gives you beautiful skin and takes years off you.

A co-worker noticed that my new pants showed off my butt quite nicely.(they are a size 6) She is so nice. But every one keeps telling that I don't need to lose weight. In a way I have been "blessed" b/c I don't look as heavy as I am. Even when I was 245 pounds no one believed me. They all would say I was stretching the truth.They just don't get it. I may not LOOK very fat but I think and feel my weight is too much.

My 30 year old daughter hadn't seen me for a while and when she did she said my thighs were smaller than she had ever seen them before. She is right. I haven't weighed this since right after she was born!

A couple of men I work with have noticed...I wear a uniform every day so I would think it'd be tough to tell if I've lost any weight. Have lost 13 lbs, and it's pretty much all over, but my trousers are definitely looser and think that's where it was noticed. My sisters have said my legs and behind are slimmer. Hubby says I'm sexy-course he said that before I lost weight.
At first I couldn't really see where I was losing the weight, but now notice I need new bras, my upper arms aren't so big, and my thighs don't rub together so much. YAY!
I'm in a bit of a fitness slump this week tho. Gotta get back on track!

From a couple of 7yr olds
Lana, when she saw me in my clingy exercise clothes "Wendy, you're getting finner!".

Jack, when he saw me dressed for a night out "Wendy, you look great!".

And from my three envious and much younger friends when they saw 3 men chat me up one evening, "You are looking years younger now and you are getting all the attention from the men in here!".

I have even plucked up the courage to start looking for dates again. emoticon

I have less than 10 pounds to go. When I told my guy that, he said "I think that you have a great body". Considering he was the one that told me I needed to lose, it was nice to hear.

My daughters friend asked me why I exercised because I am already so skinny...

One of the men I work with told me that I look like I lost weight (ya, 22 pounds!)...

I will never give up... I will just keep searching for my diamond in the rough.

I've had three or four people notice - one dancer in particular keeps telling me I'm shrinking. It's cool.

I've had a lot of comments from my freinds at work, as I've been on this journey for about 6 months. Yesterday, my supervisor advised that I should think about getting smaller scrubs - mine are too big. She said that if I wear clothes that actually fit, then people will REALLY notice how small I am.

I'm just not used to seeing all the curves, muscles and bone!

I found that very few people noticed for quite a while (or they didn't say anything)... then all of a sudden BAM! people began to notice and say something. One co-worker calls me skinny-minny now - a bit of an exaggeration, but it feels great.

I'm thankful to have a hubby who comments daily on how my body is changing for the better.

I'm frustrated that more "outsiders" aren't saying much, though!!

A lot of posts on this group have been along the lines of how even a couple of pounds difference is commented on...I've lost FIFTEEN lbs and had hardly any comments made!! I guess it's because I truly do carry the weight all over, so I'm LOSING it all over. I'm only 4'11" and it's frustrating to see I still have 9 lbs to go, just to reach "overweight"...

Sorry, I kind of went into a rant there - at least my hubby notices and is happy, eh?!?!

Right on, that is SO nice when people notice how hard you're working!

I just got glasses (mostly for driving, I don't need to wear them all the time)and my hubby said he doesn't like them, but everyone else I run into says they look great! What do men know about fashion anyways?? LOL

At work a lot of people have been coming up to me and said they notice that I am losing weight. I tell that I am and thank u. Even certain family members are noticing as well. That is making me work even harder now.
