Yesterday I went to lunch with a couple of my coworkers from last year. I haven't seen them in about a month - since we went to lunch for my birthday. They both noticed that I've lost weight and said they could see it in my face. It made my day!

I too am tall so it took a lot for weight loss, and only by a few people, to be noticed ( 30 pounds), it was not until 50 + pounds did more comments come in,was a bit frustrating but when I talk to other ppl if helps. I am grateful for this journey as I have never lost and compliments are a bonus.

I am tall so the goal weight may be ambitious...I never was a yo-yo dieter so this is my first real weight loss and am not sure of my #... at the end of the day my true goal..."To thine own self be true" William Shakespeare (from Hamlet)

Be well!

My chiropractor said have you lost some weight? I said I had lost about 20 pounds. She said I can tell!

It always makes me feel good when someone sees that I've lost.

Yay! (I think) TWO people noticed yesterday. One coworker commented on my weight loss; said I looked great and you could really tell in my face. Another one asked if I got a new hairstyle or something - looked confused when I said no, then said I look good. Men...he was probably afraid to ask if I lost weight, lol.

Being tall, it took 20 pounds before it started to get noticable, which is kind of frustrating. But then, I can also gain 7 pounds without it being noticable, lol.

One of the ladies at physical therapy asked me if I had lost weight. I liked that someone noticed, although I'm not sure how much of my 8 pounds was actual weight loss as opposed to water weight. Still, my pants fit a bit better. I have a long way to go, but every little bit helps.

OK, so I know it's a good problem to have, but things can be really awkward at work. People I know well but see infrequently don't even recognize me anymore. I'll say hello, and get a blank-stare-quick-glance-at-the-ID look before they acknowledge me with that sheepish look of "oh, of course it's you".
It's really, really weird.

Congrats on the 15 pound loss and keep up the great work.

No-one has told me anything yet, but I've only lost 11 pounds since really trying. But on the flip side I've noticed and I'm proud.

We had one our band fundraisers Friday night. I haven't seen a lot of the parents since our band competitions back in October. I had about 5 people come up to me and tell me how great I looked!!! I love that, it's very motivational.

The last couple of days, people have been commenting. One of my co-workers told me I was "disappearing" lol. And today when I stopped by a local store I saw someone that I haven't seen in a while and she commented on how much weight I lost and asked what I was doing to lose. I don't know why it matters so much but it sure does make me want to keep going when other people are noticing what I'm doing =)

My friends have commented on it, and it's been nice to feel the weight coming off. Kinda feel like my old self.
My husband made a comment a couple of days ago, and it threw me into a bit of a tizzy. I've maintained my weight this high for a reason, but I've finally admitted to myself that, that reason is no longer valid, and I am going to allow myself to continue to reduce. emoticon

No one other than my husband has mentioned that they notice, but I sure do! My very few size 16 clothes were getting too tight (I refused to buy anything bigger but I really needed an 18) and now I can easily wear my 14s again. I feel like I have a whole new work wardrobe since I can get back into so many suits. emoticon

I haven't been in my main office for about three weeks; I'm betting that people will start to comment soon. I find 15-20 pounds to be the point where people have historically noticed with me.

One of our neighbors commented on how much thinner I've gotten :-)

Then he said--"now you have to go spend a lot of money on new clothes. It's a good problem to have." I couldn't agree more!!!

One of the girls from the OR (whom I barely know) found me in my office to tell me how amazed she was at my progress and to gush over my weight loss. During that conversation I learned that she too has lost weight--110 pounds!!! So she TRULY understands the struggle! I didn't know her then and I would NEVER have guessed today that she had ever been heavy; she's in size Small scrubs and the picture of health and fitness. She is a real inspiration and I'm even more dedicated to reaching my goal (if that's possible!)

At parent teacher conferences yesterday one of my daughter's teachers from last year told me I was looking thinner! It was great, especially since she didn't know about my weight loss journey!

I had 2 great compliments at work this week. My boss told me twice that I was withering away. One of my shirts is starting to look like a jammie shirt because it's getting too big. Another person who only comes in once a month said she could really tell the weight loss in my face!

I was so excited Tuesday when a client came into the office and she noticed I had lost weight I had to hug her. It's the little things.

Yes, I have been approached a lot of times. Unfortunately, I've been asked if I was either dying or deathly ill. In ways, it's nice to see that they have noticed my significant weight drop but it gets annoying to be asked if I'm ill. Oh well, a comment is a comment -- right?

Somebody asked me yesterday if I had lost weight. I told her according to my scales "no" but I could tell by my clothes. She told me she could tell by my face.

Still waiting. emoticon I'm down 25 pounds but maybe it's because people are just too scared to offend me. I have so much further to go.

Not yet:-)

Life would be much more upbeat if there was just background music no matter when or where you were doing things.

It would also be more fun if people didn't look at you funny when you danced to the music down the sidewalk ha ha~

I saw an old friend at the store a couple of days ago. He said i have lost weight. My nephew said that when he saw me for the first time in a long time.

One of my former employees saw me yesterday after us not having seen each other in a while (he's often at a satellite location) and noticed my weight loss! I don't feel much different yet--for me, it starts to show around the 45-lb mark and I'm only just over 30 right now. I know people will start noticing in the fall, and I'm looking forward to that!

I'm still waiting. It's a little discouraging that a person can lose 20 pounds and not have anyone say anything, but everyone I'm around sees me every day. I'm excited for my daughter to come home from her 4 week trip to her dad's house next week. Hopefully she will have something nice to say about it!

Last night at work one of the supervisors said I was disappearing. But when one of my patients who hadn't seen me in a while asked another nurse who I was that made my night.working hard before my next doctor appointment.

A few days ago I was standing beside the truck while my hubby was pumping gas and he looked me up and down for a few minutes and said "How much have you lost?" I smiled and said "About 10 lbs now..why?" He said he had noticed it the night before in bed when he put his arm around me. I was on cloud nine the rest of the night because coming from someone who sees me every single day this was big news to me. :)

Today I put on a tight fitting cami that I have worn a dozen times before. The difference was that my 9 year old daughter looked at me and said "Mom, you look skinnier!" Then she put her hand on a flatter part of my upper stomach that had previously been rounder. Her eyes said it all. This happened right in the middle of my recovery from a very bad back injury that I just had that has left me unable to exercise. I just focused on my eating and I am still doing well! It is nice to be noticed!
