Seventeen pounds gone since May 28! Unfortunately I'm coming to the realization that shopping for new clothes will soon be necessary and I have...absolutely no money. :sad: Time to start hawking stuff on eBay! I've been finding satisfaction with MFP and my weight loss solely in following the discipline and seeing the numbers on the scale decrease, but yesterday my friend actually commented on my progress for the first time. After lunch she said to me:
"You're looking great by the way - you're like, half the person I met two years ago."
Admittedly it was a bit startling to think I was five or six sizes larger in 2006 when I don't necessarily feel any smaller yet, but the compliment was a nice boost to help motivate me further. I'm curious to hear about how others felt when they were first told they looked fit or slimmer. Proud? Accomplished? All of the above?
