Wow-what did you do to your hair,YOU look years younger..lol

comment from my BIL who hasnt seen me in awhile. My hair is still the same except maybe an inch or so longer,so I say I guess its a tad longer...Now he is staring at me uncomfortably(trying to figure it out)...Dh blurts out its not her hair silly ,shes lost 30lbs. Idk why but that embarrassed me.
It was nice to be acknowledged and uncomfortable at the same time..

When I started this adventure I before LC I lost weight I weighed around 200 the last time he saw me. Couldn't he have put it nicer? Men?

At least he noticed, bu I can see how it is a little embarrasing!

I work with college students and one who I hadn't seen since September saw me this week. She said "you look different" but she couldn't place it. I told her I had lost some weight and hopefully I will have lost more by the next time I see her!

Last time I saw my family, my stepmother said to me "Well you're still looking good" in this really exasperated tone. Like she was jealous that I had managed to keep off 40 lbs on LC but she had gained back the 60 lbs SHE had lost on LC.

I feel the same way. The whole reason I started was so people would STOP talking about my flesh.

They will eventually stop. People comment because it is new to them. After a while they will be used to the new you.

I hope that is not true! Your weight loss should be FOR YOU. Not for anyone else.

When I got my weght down before... the only comments I got were how bad I looked. And all were from friends. I think my success threatened them as they range from overweight to obese themselves. Not only their comments but their actions served to sabotage my weight loss & attempts to keep it off. We camp together & we can not eat with them. They leave bowls of carbs in front of me.

I know this must be for MYSELF.
