    Today I got weighed and since starting MFP I have lost 38lbs. I have a lot to lose so it's not really showing yet. The only comment I've had was negative. I told someone that I'd lost 38lbs only to be told, 'Well you have a long way to go.' Yes I know I have a long way to go but I need to celebrate 38lbs. So I'm asking you to celebrate with me because you all know how much effort I've had to put in to lose that amount.

    38 pounds is a remarkable achievement no matter how much you want to lose overall. Yay, 38 pounds! 🎉🎉🎉

    Don't let that person get to you. Hugs...

    That is an incredible achievement! Sounds to me like those negative people are projecting their own failures on you! You are winning! Cut those toxic people out of your life and keep on keeping on!!!

    38 lbs is amazing!!!! I've lost 33.2 as of this morning & nobody has noticed yet, I'm afraid if I say something that I too will get a negative comment. I have a LONG way to go also so those I'm around every day don't notice yet. BUT I do and I know YOU do also, little things like walking & climbing stairs are getting easier. The other day I picked up a 25lb sack of potatoes in the grocery store & just carried it around, it was HARD, imagine that I was doing that every day & more. CELEBRATE YOU & YOUR SUCCESS, DON'T EVER LET ANYONE ELSE GET YOU DOWN ♥

    You're doing so well!

    Congratulations on your success.

    Try and filter out the negative (it's a reflection on them and not you) and just keep on keepin on.

    38 pounds!! That is nothing to scoff at! That is nearly 8 bags of flour!
    You are doing great!

    I wish I was there with a 38 lb sack of dog doo to put in their lap so they could appreciate the real accomplishment in your 38 lbs of progress and how sh*tty their remark was. Good work!

    Brilliant. Keep at it. I get those sort of comments sometimes. I just think they have no friends. That always makes me feel better 😀😀

    38 pounds is amazing! I, and everyone commenting above is incredibly proud of you! Some people are just mean spirited; attacking others makes them feel better about their own troubles. They are probably projecting disappointment they have in their lives on you. I recommend either cutting out the toxic person, or perhaps lend a helping hand and offer to bring them along with you in your weight loss journey. Either way, stay committed to your goals. Best of luck!

    I celebrate every time I lose 5 lbs. Even 1 lb counts. Negative people are everywhere. Don't let them ruin your progress. Enjoy your journey.

    Well done! Do you measure and take photos? This would help to remind you of how much great progress you are making. Don’t let others sabotage your success.
