We went to a gathering last night, with a lot of folks we haven't seen in several months. I look very different. Ive been working hard and it shows...and I dressed to show it off a little. I got several...ok, many....comments of " you look amazing!".... which really felt great! And then...a couple of people saying "you're on maintainance now, right....?" Wait..you think I am too thin? Me? Ive never been anything close to thin in my life, and I'm not thin now. I know these folks are coming from a place of genuine concern not snarkiness, but it just felt so strange! I have a bit more weight to lose, but I have no intention of getting down into very thin...I'm not a tiny person by build or nature!
I'm still really grinning about all the positive feedback. It feels so good to know the work ive been putting in gets noticed, as well as the health benefits Im reaping! A big NSV in my book!

    Always a great feeling when that happens :-). In terms of the 'concerns' of others, just remember that these are YOUR goals. Sometimes, when people see what they may consider a sudden weight loss, they may think you are doing something unhealthy to achieve it. As long as you know differently, keep on keepin' on :-). Congratulations on your success so far, too!
